The evolution of man necessitates that he form communities where he can live in relation with his neighbors. And since human beings are of varied in nature, it became pertinent that each community must organize itself to take care of both the weak and strong, and therefore a legal system gradually evolved in each society based on the spiritual maturity of the people. But the more mankind fell from grace, the more removed the laws became from natural laws that govern all creation. Thus it is that these laws became so different from one community to the other, that what is unlawful in one country may be accepted in the next country.
This was possible because man, in his evolution, succumbed to the Lucifer principle of letting himself go, where they try to accommodate their weakness in their mundane laws. But in actual sense, there ought to be one law in existence, the law of nature, which, if all people chose to follow it, could manifest differently in different parts of the world based on the spiritual maturity of the people involved. But the intellect insists on discrepancy in the legal system, where arbitrariness rules. For example, the natural laws insist that whatever a man sows, that shall he reap. This the legal system ought to have followed up in their administration of justice, but it is not so. This is partly their fault and partly not their fault.
Take an example. A man commits murder. He is arrested and brought to court. Every evidence, real and circumstantial, points to his guilt. The judge has no option than to find him guilty and sentence him to death. But in actual sense, the Judge does not have all the facts. For one, the murderer is only an executor and not the originator. All over the world, far away from the seat of justice, people who have experienced similar issues like the ones that provoked the murderer may have wished their victims murdered silently. All these wishes rises up as thoughts to a power center where they are intensified. The murderer happens to be the person who was just in a position to execute his own action. So he drew strength from the power center and physically carried out the deed.Every other person involved in the thought are also guilty. But because we believe that thoughts are free, they cannot be tried. But in the eyes of Natural laws-some would say eyes of the Creator, it is one and the same-they are guilty and must reap what they have sown according to the Law of sowing and reaping.
That is why keeping the thoughts pure at all times is the only way we can be free. For every action must begin with a thought. As a Man Thinket…
