On Human Relations, part 2: The Law of Balance

 “The Law of Balance is the Law of Love upon which the universe is founded.” (Walter Russell)

My Chorale PicI’ve been away from my blogging for a few weeks due to preparations for a workshop that had to be cancelled for close family health reasons. I hope you enjoyed my last posts on this blog and on my Health Light Newsletter on the theme of balancing and harmonizing the chakras and endocrine energy fields. If you haven’t had an opportunity to read those posts, they are still available in the archives.

In this post we will continue our consideration of human relations, sharing some of the wisdom of Walter and Lao Russell. In Part 1, we started addressing the question: What is Love? In this post I will focus the consideration on balance, the essential ingredient of all successful, creative, and, therefore, healthy relationships.

Reading Walter and Lao’s books – THE MESSAGE OF THE DIVINE ILIAD and GOD WILL WORK WITH YOU BUT NOT FOR YOU respectively – I was profoundly touched by this couple’s powerfully creative and fruitful relationship.  They were truly in Love together.  I would like to take this opportunity to share with my readers excerpts from these books that will give you a feel for the cosmic basis of their relationship. I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I do. Rarely does one find clear expressions of universal truths in timeless words. I love that about Walter and Lao’s writings.

THE LAW OF BALANCE

THE LAW OF BALANCE is the Law of Love upon which the universe is founded. This law is given to man for his coming renaissance of greater comprehension. It is, of all laws, the inclusive and the most simple. It consists of but three words. These three words are the very foundation of all our material existence, all phenomena of matter or interchange between humans, economically, socially and spiritually.

I will read to you from THE DIVINE ILIAD:

“Great art is simple. My universe is great art, for it is simple.

“Great art is balanced. My universe is consummate art, for it is balanced simplicity.

“My universe is one in which many things have majestic measure; and again another many have measure too fine for sensing.

“Yet I have not one law for majestic things, and another law for things which are beyond the sensing.

“I have but one law for all My opposed pairs of creating things; and that law needs but one word to spell it out, so hear Me when I say that the one word of My one law is 

                                                  BALANCE.

And if man needs two words to aid him in his knowing of the workings of that law, those words are

                                BALANCED INTERCHANGE.

If man still needs more words to aid his knowing of My one law, give to him another one, and let those three words be

                      RHYTHMIC BALANCED INTERCHANGE.”

Balance is the foundation of all human relations, of the universe itself. The stars of heaven move in obedience to it. They cannot do otherwise. Cosmic disaster of untold dimension would follow such disobedience. The starry universe is so absolute in its balance that the movement of a dewdrop on anyone planet necessitates the readjustment of the orbits of all the stars of heaven to that microcosmic event. Because of that law all happenings are universal. Any action anywhere is extended for repetition everywhere. All motion is as omnipresent as the Light of God is omnipresent. All effect is universal.

God is balance. From the stillness of His balance in the unconditioned One Light, He extends His balance to the conditioned universe of motion as two opposite unbalanced conditions of two lights which seek balance through each other.

“NATURE NEVER TAKES THAT WHICH IS NOT GIVEN”

Oppositely-conditioned pairs in Nature seek balance through each other by repeatedly giving all that each has to give to the other in rhythmic sequences. In Nature this process continues perpetually because in Nature all givings of one are perpetually balanced by equal regivings of the other. Nature never takes that which is not given.

This universe is founded upon love as manifested in the giving of one opposite to the other for regiving. The earth gives its forests to the heavens and the heavens give them back again to earth for equal regiving. Every dewdrop given by the heavens is equally regiven to the heavens by the earth.

Equal interchange between opposite conditions manifests the love principle of balance upon which God’s universal body is founded. Whatever is true of God’s universal body is true of man’s body. It is the equality of balance between the giving and regiving of Nature which makes its transactions perpetual. The lack of the love principle of rhythmic balanced interchange in the transactions of men is the reason for the ills of the body and for the disasters which make continuance of relations between men impossible.

The seller of goods is also a buyer. If the seller gives less to his customers than the value of what he charges, he deprives his customer of the ability to regive that which the seller needs to again become a seller. By sacrificing the good-will which is the foundation of continuance in any business, the love principle has been subtracted from the transaction in the measure of inequality of interchange.

Neither man nor nation can continue an interchange of relations upon a harmonious basis of multiplying power when the universal love principle is violated. The law of balance is absolute. He who breaks that law will be equally broken by it.

If each of the two conditions which forms the basis for every transaction between pairs of opposites in Nature can be kept in balance with the other, the resultant effect is good. When they are out of balance with each other, the resultant effect is bad.

Good and bad — sin and evil — measure the degree in which all pairs of oppositely-conditioned effects of motion are either in balance with each other or out of it. In all our human relations we, ourselves, make our own good and bad, or evils and sins, by our desires and decisions to act either in or out of balance with Universal Law.

There is no sin or evil in Nature, for Nature observes the law of balance. Every unbalanced effect in Nature is balanced by its opposite unbalanced effect.

The play of Creation consists of dividing all ideas into two opposite parts. What each half does in relation to the other half constitutes the play. Such divisions into halves are male and female—buyer and seller—positive and negative—compression and expansion, and countless other divisions of ideas into unbalanced pairs for the purpose of expressing those ideas.

Whatever these opposed pairs do in any transaction results in an effect. All human relations are thus divided, and transactions between humans results in either good or bad effects which we call happiness or misery in accordance with whether the transaction is balanced or unbalanced. Man can make whichever he chooses. He can make happiness, success, wealth, friendship and health only by obeying the law. He can never find them by disobeying the law.

For aeons mankind has been breaking the law in an endeavor to find happiness, wealth and power. Civilization has been built by the unbalanced power of might-over-right. Nations have enriched themselves by impoverishing other nations, expecting to find happiness by giving misery—expecting to attain power by depriving others of power. Without any exception, those who have broken the law have been equally broken by the law. This war-broken world of today is the result of yesterday’s breaking of the law.

IT’S ABOUT CONSCIOUS LIVING, ISN’T IT?

It is a challenge to be consciously aware — “mindful” is the word these days — of what I am doing day in and day out. For example, we go to the grocery store so frequently that it has become part of our routine in life. So routine is this activity that it can almost be done without thinking. I simply read my grocery list, collect what I need into my cart and check out at the cashier’s counter. I bring my groceries home, put them away and take them out later to prepare a meal. I sit down to eat my meal then rise to wash my dishes and clean up the kitchen. All this I can do, have done, without giving a single thought to all that has gone before, all the people who make my daily meals at all possible.

For example, there’s the farmer who grew the vegetables — which come from our own garden this time of year, “Thank you Mother God and the good earth and worms and microorganisms!” — the packager who shipped them to the super market, the truck driver who drove all night to get the produce to the grocer, the grocer himself who provided the store and stocked it with groceries. Then there’s the stock boy who placed the apples and oranges on display, the company who made the grocery cart for me to gather my groceries and cart them up to the cashier. Then there’s the cashier who checks me out and collects my payment, and the bagging boy who puts my groceries into bags so that I can carry them home. Then there’s the ” butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker,” along with the workers who packaged the bread, the meat and the candlesticks — all of this done for my convenience, to make my life enjoyable and less stressful. And we could go on to include the transportation system — our automobiles and the petroleum needed to run them — but I’ll stop there.  It’s called “Community.” How many people am I consciously aware of who are in some small and large way involved in just my daily meals? Well, if I am consciously aware of them, whoever they are, when I give my money to the cashier for my groceries, then that act of paying for what has been given to me can take on a much larger meaning that isn’t otherwise in my consciousness when I am acting mindlessly out of habit and routine, and maybe complaining about the rising cost of things. How much more fun there is in being mindful!  And thankful!

Sometimes I think of all this and a deep sense of appreciation whelms up in my heart.  It can’t help but whelm up. My payment, then, becomes a means of giving so that the grocer and so many others can continue giving — never mind whether or not they are mindful of the Law of Balance and of their participation in it or lack thereof.  If I am, then they are too, because what I do here is done everywhere. We are one Body of humanity! Let me be conscious for the whole Body.

Our needs are not that great. Our wants are what get us into trouble with the Law of Balance.

I practiced for fourteen years back in the 1960-70’s, along with other colleagues, without a fee for our services. It was called the “GPC Cooperative Fee System.”  The acronym stood for “God–Patient–Chiropractor.” The rationale was that God gives life freely to the patient and the chiropractor alike, so what right does the chiropractor have to charge a fee for helping his patients increase their experience of life?  That’s what true healthcare does, or is at least supposed to do: increase the expression of life in human beings. What price could we honestly place on that?! Health and life are priceless. So we didn’t charge for it, and God came through in providing for our needs. (And when you stop to think about it honestly, our needs are not that great. Our wants are what get us into trouble with the Law of Balance. Think about it. )

We practiced this way in order to align ourselves with the Universal Law of Giving and Receiving. In order to awaken my patients to the this law, I would often say “The patient just leaving the office paid for your services today. You can pay for the person following you, if you like.” Well, it wasn’t true, at least not in a conscious sense. But it was the fact, nevertheless, that we were able to continue giving our services to others because the ones who went before gave to us financially so that we could keep the clinic open and buy groceries in order to sustain our bodies.  Those were the best years of my entire career as a healthcare practitioner. We had so much fun waking people up to the truth and spirit of the Law of Balance. It was also an education in how little value people in general placed on our services and, more to the point, were willing to invest in the health and wellness of their own house of being.  Far more value is placed on the kind of automobile one drives, and keeping it in good running condition, and the quality and comfort of one’s domicile. We averaged around $9 per office visit — but we saw and blessed between fifty and a hundred patients every day!  Just thought I would cap this post off with a little story of my own. We are missing out on a marvelously rewarding experience mindlessly giving just to get something for ourselves from others. We can’t actually do that, you know, for there are no “others.” There’s only the One I am.

Until my next post, in which I will share some of Lao Russell’s wise words on personal relationships, I wish you well.

Apocalypse of Light 2013, Part 5 Questions Answered in the Light, page 1

Walter Russell

Walter Russell

Walter Russell tapped into the secrets of the Universe. He was able to do this because he lived his life in the Light.  His intense desire for knowledge was the key that opened his heart and mind to receive knowledge directly from God. His writings and revelations indicate clearly and repeatedly that each one of us can access knowledge directly from God just as easily as he did, echoing words the Master Jesus reportedly uttered: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth in me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” (John 14:12) That is a promise worth exploring and receiving.

In THE MESSAGE OF THE DIVINE ILIAD  Russell answers questions concerning life and universal truths in the Light. I will share some of these questions and answers in the next few blog posts. As always, you comments are welcome and encouraged.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Q. Why is it you are able to answer all of our questions upon any subject so easily?

A. Because all knowledge exists and one can have all knowledge by desiring to have it. To quote from THE DIVINE ILIAD: “All questions are answerable in Light. Thou art Light. Thou can’st answer them.You can answer them as well as I if your desire for knowledge is sufficiently intense. Let me call to your attention, however, that I cannot answer questions which are not knowledge. I could not tell you the date of Julius Caesar’s birth, for that is not knowledge; that is but information. Knowledge is limited to cause. Information concerns effect. Effect belongs to the sensed electric universe of motion. Motion cannot be known. It can but be comprehended.

Q. What is the underlying principle of motion?

A. The universe of motion is founded upon a very simple principle, as simple as your heartbeat or your incoming-outgoing breath. All effects are the result of the two desires of the Creator for expression of His idea. One desire is for division of oneness of idea into multiple forms of ideas. The other is for a return to oneness for repetition of multiplicity through rest. Each of these desires is expressed by half a cycle of two-way motion between two opposite points of rest to other opposite points. Each opposite voids its other opposite, but our senses do not detect this fact. If they did, they would sense the illusion which the universe of motion is. All effects of motion are the result of either balanced or unbalanced interchange between the pairs of opposites which manifest God’s two desires while on their respective journeys to and from the rest points in the Light from which each is extended. 

Q. Have you any simple key, or formula, which helps you answer questions?

A. Yes. My knowledge of the wave is the key. 

Q. Tell us about the wave.

A. The wave is the foundation of God’s creative expression. By means of light-waves God expresses His two desires. There can be nothing more simple than the wave principle of equal giving and regiving for the purpose of repeating the giving and regiving. Complexity lies only in multiplying simplicity. The principle that two times two are four is simple, but the same simple principle applies when you multiply 5648 by 4872. All you have done is to create the idea of complexity by multiplying simplicity. That in no wise alters the simple principle. When you learn to think in terms of the wave, you will find yourself living in another world. The more you know the light-wave which records God’s thinking, the more you will be enabled to think with Him. The more you think with God, the more you will know, for God is all knowledge and His knowing will be your knowing. 

The wave is the key.  Until the next post, may the Wave be with you. 🙂 Tony's picture 2 from PeggyAnthony Palombo

Apocalypse of Light 2013, Part 4: Divine Economics, page 2 — Reciprocity and Compensation

Tony's picture 2 from Peggy

THE VERTICAL COMPONENT

In man’s world of economics we work with three columns: Debit, Credit, and Balance.  Debits and credits are two unbalanced components that work against one another to maintain a balance.  It is so as well in God’s universe of rhythmic balanced interchange.

There is a vertical component and a horizontal component that together form a + sign. The vertical component in the Law of Balance is the spiritual or vibrational component — God or spirit. The horizontal component is the material plane of manifestation — Man and his world. When the Divine component is known and honored as the Cause and Source of everything on the horizontal plane, and the horizontal component is used to give expression to the vertical component of spirit, there is balance.  

In spiritual terms, when God is expressed through Man the experience is balance for Man and his affairs.  The result is a big plus (+).  No deficit, no debt and no credit.  Simply balance.  When the vertical component is ignored or forgotten altogether, the equation is unbalanced and the result is a big minus (–) in human affairs.  This is where we are now, and have been since our fall from grace in Paradise.

The Master Jesus spelled out the balanced equation very succinctly when he answered the chief priests and scribes who challenged him over the legality of paying homage to Caesar.  Seeing that Caesar’s image and inscription were on the coin of the realm, he replied: “Render, therefore, unto Caesar’s the things that be Caesar’s and unto God the things that be God’s” (Luke 20:22-25).  Of course, in truth, Caesar and all his coins and currency belong to God as well.  “The Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein.”  It all belongs to God to be used to manifest the beauty of Creation and reveal the kingdom and power and glory of the Creator. This is the literal and true meaning of the word “apocalypse”– revelation.

THE TRUE NATURE AND PURPOSE OF CURRENCY

Money represents life essence.  It’s even green in most currencies. When we use money as a means of sharing our life with others and  for conveying a spirit of love and appreciation, we render due homage to God and thus have a positive influence on our economy.  On the other hand, when we pay for goods and services with a begrudging attitude of complaint over the high cost and what-have-you, we withhold homage from God and thus have a negative impact on our economy.  It’s that simple.  Our economy is not about money. It’s about how we go about vibrationally exchanging our life essence for goods and services.  

Do I appreciate (increase) the value and worth of those who offer me their services and goods so that they they can continue to re-give with the money I exchange and the positive reinforcement of a grateful spirit, or do I depreciate (decrease) their sense of value and worth as merchants and people by conveying a spirit of complaint or criticism as I hand over my cash or credit card? I humbly confess that I have done both.

THE TRUE NATURE OF THE ECONOMY

The currency of the God’s universe is life essence. We the people ARE the economy of God. Our bodies belong to Life, our minds belong to Truth, and our hearts belong to Love. For Life and Truth to flow through our bodies and minds, Love needs to flow through our hearts.  Love is the vertical component, and it comes down from God out of heaven right through the middle of our hearts in each moment.  Each moment is where the vertical touches and passes through the horizontal to imbue flesh with life.  And it is always NOW.  Life is only in the present moment where perfect balance abides as a fulcrum for the creative process of giving and re-giving. Our function as the economy of God is to extend the Creative Process from His balanced fulcrum of love to the material world — which is nothing more than light vibrating at lower and coarser frequencies so as to appear to have substance.  Through Man the frequency of Light shifts and begins to be visible and tangible.  We are God’s helpers in creating a visible world that may reflect the glory of God’s perfect sense of balance. 

Walter Russell writes: 

The universal law of balance is that principle of equal interchange between all creating things which preserves both the unity and the continuity of the universe.

There’s not anything more powerfully cohesive than love for preserving the unity and continuity of the universe.  My spiritual teacher repeated an admonition a hundred times if once:  “Never underestimate the power of spiritual expression.”  There is not anyone or any circumstance that can prevent me from being thankful, kind and considerate.  Rendering unto God what is God’s opens one to receive what God has to give to us and through us into the world.  

GENIUS IS INHERENT IN EVERYONE

I received an excellent and in depth comment from one of my blog flowers and favorite authors, Hugh Malafry, whose captivating novels I have reviewed in this blog — notably The Light at Lindisfarne — in which he inquires about a statement I had made regarding Walter Russell’s source for his writings.  I had stated that the messages he recorded in The Divine Iliad were for mankind and not just for Walter Russell. My friend wrote: “Would it not be  better to open people to the sense that a like and confirming experience can be known by them when they are open to what Russell was open to?”  In other words, direct revelation from God is available to anyone who opens to it.  “Ask and ye shall receive. Seek and ye shall find. Knock and it shall be opened.” Genius, as Russell proved over and again in his life, is inherent in everyone.

The Light is in everyone and everything to its fullest extent. It is in every cell of one’s body, centering it. It is in the magnetic poles of everyone, controlling them.  You may have that Light of all-knowledge for the asking.  Knowledge is cosmic; it is universal. Desire what you will of it and it will unfold within you. You will suddenly become consciously aware of it by receiving a flash of inspiration. That flash is your answer. 

We are what we desire to be. We can be what we wish to be. If we make a plan of our own lives and desire that plan to be fulfilled, we will become that. And all the laws of the universe will help us to become that. Each step in the unfoldment of desire leads to new unfoldment.

Desire to be great and you will be.  Desire to kill and you can also kill. The universe helps equally in either case. The universe works with each person to help him fulfill his desire, no matter what that desire is. We can make or break ourselves. Our lives are our own making. If we work with the law of balance, we achieve balanced results.  If we break the law, the law breaks us to an equal extent—and immediately.

Then Russell pens this revelation in The Divine Iliad, which needs no explanation or commentary from me.

“Sit ye not and ask, acting not, for thy desire will not come thy way to thee unaided by thy strong arms.”

GIVING FOR RE-GIVING

We can choose to give in order to receive.  Or we can give in order to foster the continuance of life in the body of Mankind.  Walter Russell saw giving in a different light and from a cosmic perspective.  He saw many things in a different way than most.  For example, he saw unbalance as necessary to motion.  He saw breaking the Law of Balance not as a “sin” against God but only as an offense against one’s self and humanity. God cannot be offended by human failure and disobedience. He writes . . .

The secret of harmonious human relations lies in a deeper understanding of rhythmic balanced interchange between opposite unbalanced halves of all transactions. Unbalance is necessary in order for interchange to take place, for without two unbalanced conditions motion could not take place at all.

No matter how great the desire is to walk, one cannot do so until he loses his balance by dividing it into opposite halves to become the basis of a two-way moving cycle. With one unbalanced half, he takes one step, and recovers his balance with the other half of the cycle in order to take the next step. If the interchange is equal, he will walk steadily. If not, he will stagger or fall. He has not committed a sin against God or the universe by thus falling. He has merely hurt his own body and gained an experience in so doing.

Vapors rising from the ocean are balanced by rains falling into it. The balance of this planet in its orbit is so perfect that an astronomer can tell to the split second where it is at any time-or when an eclipse of the sun or moon will take place.

If the earth should vary ever so slightly in its orbit and become out of balance with the other planets in this solar system, its oceans would rise over its highest mountains and sweep all expressions of life from its surface.

T he perpetuity of Creation is based upon the constant giving of one half of a cycle to the other half for the purpose of repeating the creative process through another cycle of giving for regiving. (Russel, The Divine Iliad)

In our day to day lives we play the roles of both merchant and customer, giver and receiver, server and servee.  I am both in every exchange, for I am you and you are me.  What I do to and for you I do to and for myself. I foster my own perpetuity when I give to you in exchange for what you re-give to me and others, for in truth there are no “others.”  

I have a bit more to write on this subject, and this post is already over seventeen-hundred words in length.  I’ll continue sharing my thoughts — and those of my friend who took the time to comment on this series theme — in my next post.  Until then, 

Be love. Be loved.
