Christ Laws for Today

What are “Christ Laws”? Simply put, Christ Laws are Laws of Ascension, the ascension of consciousness from self-consciousness to soul-awareness. All laws are ultimately derived from a First Principle: We define principle as “the absolute, universal, unchangeable, undeviating immutable foundation upon which all universes are based and established.” First principles are fundamental, the superstructure of everything that exists or can exist in God's Creation.

Some laws are absolute, but most are relative. Many laws are abstract, and many are concrete. Absolute and abstract laws are metaphysical in nature, meaning that they deal with “the nature of reality, including the relationship between mind and matter, substance and attribute, fact and value,” and “questions that are unanswerable to scientific observation, analysis, or experiment.” — American Heritage Dictionary.

“Every absolute principle becomes many
abstract and relative laws of being and of doing.”

Absolute principle is pure, whole, perfect and complete;however, in the moment that absolute principle is extended into the manifest Creation as its guiding principle, it becomes subject to interpretation by the lesser minds within the relative Creation and thus subject to interpretations that are imperfect, impure, partial, and incomplete. Thus, every absolute principle may become many lesser abstract principles and relative laws of being and of doing throughout the unguessable dimensions of the universe. Being is all that God is as potential Wisdom, Love and Power. In dealing with “being” as it applies to spiritual laws, we are concerned with states of consciousness, which are states of being. Doing implies action and is kinetic as to its thinking, sustaining, and activity, which is derived from being. You must obey many laws of doing in order to become, that is, to fulfill the laws of being.

The following lists are by no means exhaustive. You may find many more examples by using the Topics feature above.
