For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Every ounce that is given is “regiven” so that it can be given again and again and again forever. If the Human Race would adopt such an economy, our current financial crisis would soon cease to exist. The only – and perhaps painful – catch is we would have to let go of our credit system. In God’s universe there is no such thing as credit; only “Rhythmic Balanced Interchange.”
Walter Russell has a wonderful chapter in his 1948 book THE MESSAGE OF THE DIVINE ILIAD — reprinted in 1971 by The University of Science and Philosophy — in which he details how God operates his “business” of running the Universe on a balanced budget — so balanced, in fact, that credit and debt aren’t even allowed for. I’m going to excerpt the bulk of the chapter and publish it here in my blog over the next few posts — it is that good and pertinent to the times we are in of global economic ruin and immanent collapse.
I am doing this because I believe that we the people of planet Earth can save our economy from utter collapse simply by how we view and handle our daily business transactions and interchanges of goods and services between us at a grassroots level. Never mind those at the top who own and run the world’s banking industry. They will meet their due demise — along with the monetary system they are destroying — and quite soon as some are predicting. Let us be ready, then, to replace the monetary system, which is based on credit and debt, with a system that works throughout the Universe.
We can do this without “they” — and we must do it if we are to avert a global catastrophe — in the not too distant future if the current trend continues. So, without any further commentary on my part, let’s read a little from Walter Russell’s chapter “THE LAW OF BALANCE.” This is divine revelation. He didn’t get this from research or out of his head. This was given to him from the CEO of the Universe. You see, Walter Russell lived his entire life in a close partnership with God. It’s uncanny and true. Everything he ever undertook and accomplished — and he undertook and accomplished much in his lifetime — he did working with God, and God worked with him. These messages are expressly intended for Mankind. They only came through Walter Russell.
Chapter II: 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 most 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
And if man needs two words to aid him in his knowing of the workings of that law, those words are
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.
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.
The converse is also true: if the buyer gives less to the seller than the value of the goods or services, the seller won’t be able to stay in business — something I leaned first hand in my career as a healthcare practitioner.
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.
A PATH TO BANKRUPTCY
That last sentence is prophetic as well as accurate: “He who breaks that law will be equally broken by it.” If one continues to live beyond one’s means, his finances will end up broken and he will end up “broke,” as we accurately say in pecuniary slang
I know first hand that this is how it works. I lost my business twice in bankruptcy because I ran it outside the Universal Law of Balance. The first time I lost it I had over $30,000 on the books, credit extended to my clientele so they could “afford” my care — in effect, live beyond their means. That was not at all offset by my $100,000 in accounts payable to businesses who allowed me to run my business beyond its means. You work with the system handed to you.
When the oil industry in Bell Chasse, where I practiced for five years, went bust and all the oil personnel evacuated the area literally overnight, my accounts receivable went with them. I had worked outside the Universal Law of Balance and I went “broke.” The second time was when I had bypass surgery to save my life. I was extended credit by the hospital, only my means did not match my debt. Again, working outside the Law of Balance by extending credit and incurring debt, the system broke down. I do carry a relatively small amount of credit card debt, which I am slowly paying down. Yet, even though it is acceptable to have a credit card debt, I always feel the unbalancing effect of being out of line with my integrity when I can’t pay my credit card off at the end of each month. Credit and debt are simply not natural in this Universe of Rhythmical Balanced Interchange.
SERVING ON A “GIVING BASIS”
I practiced for fourteen years with a number of colleagues where we used what was called a “Cooperative Fee System” which allowed patients to pay within their means for services rendered. This included exams, x-rays and treatments. This was before insurance companies began paying for chiropractic care. It was also called “GPC” which stood for “God-Patient-Chiropractor.” The principle was sound enough: God gives life and health to the patient freely, the chiropractor facilitates its reception and release through his services, aligned with God’s generosity, and the patient gives within his or her means to the doctor in a spirit of gratitude for his services freely given — and so that he can continue delivering his services. That’s how it was supposed to work — and by and large did — only many patients didn’t always prove to be as aligned with God’s generosity as we endeavored to be. I had an old and wise black man as a patient who frequently reminded me how generous God is: “You jes can’t beat God givin,’ ” he would say in his all-knowing laughter as he gave his honest best within his means.
I did get a rubber-on-the-road education as to where many place their health on their list of priorities and it’s not up top. But there’s a complex social-politico-economic context in the human psyche in which this aberration is taking place, which I won’t get into now. It also has to do with our basic sense of unworthiness — our lack of self-worth.
That being said, nearly everyone thought we were being very generous — and “Christian,” as some called us. Some thought we were a bit crazy to be so trusting of people. This aberration would show up when someone would ask, quite innocently and with genuine concern for my welfare: “But, how do you live, doctor?” (I wrote an article for a magazine by that title years ago. Maybe I’ll reprint it in a post.) In actuality, we were challenging the Law of Balance, and I always felt a knot in my stomach when the money received at the end of a day didn’t really equal the value of the services we had rendered. I definitely felt out of my integrity, although my spirit was thankful. God IS generous! Life IS freely given to all! Health IS priceless! But the rent and utilities and supplies were not free, although we somehow, by the grace of God and very wise management, were always able to meet our expenses. The system worked in that we had a very high-volume of patient visits. We didn’t take a lot home, but we learned to live within our means. We had put our lives and our services on a “Giving Basis” and that felt right and wholesome. God IS good. Yet the Law of Balance has its consequences when disobeyed, even with the best and noblest of intentions and motives. “He who breaks that law will be equally broken by it.” I would love to use the Cooperative Fee System again, and maybe there’s been enough of a change in consciousness for it to work. Serving on a giving basis is much more fun than working on a getting basis, mainly because it allows for a full release of one’s spirit of generosity, of God.
THE DISHONEST CREDIT AND DEBT SYSTEM
Now, everyone in the working class buys on credit. The rationale is: “Everybody does business this way.” I was convinced of this myself, that is until I started reading Walter Russell. How else would we be able to buy houses and automobiles, and the real estate and automotive industries be able to remain in business? Nevertheless, based on the Law of Balance, we and these industries are operating beyond the safety of the law, and we’ve seen both the housing industry and the automotive industry broken over and again by this practice.
Of course there’s abuse of the system, on both sides. But the system itself is dishonest and invites dishonesty and greed. Doctors have a double fee system, although it’s illegal. Yet they are not arrested and convicted of the crime because of a “discount” loophole in the law. I played that game for years by “discounting” my services — not to the insurance carrier, mind you. That would have been the bone- honest thing to do — although insurance is an abused and not entirely honest system also, which I’ll talk about in another post. Auto repair shops have a double fee system: one fee for the insurance company and another if you pay cash, even if you cashed the insurance check. It’s illegal, yet it’s the way we do business in this discount, dishonest and greed-ridden business world. We all know that stores jack their prices before applying a “discount” during sales. We need to find our way back to honesty and integrity in our financial and business affairs. We CAN do it.
That’s what I will write about in my next few posts – and work at myself by walking my talk, if for no other reason than to be able to write with authority about how things CAN and DO work when we’re within our integrity with the Law of Balance.

Be love. Be loved.

106 countries visiting my blogs. Recently I had 3 visitors from Vanuatu in the Pacific Islands. Welcome!!! I had to Google it to see where it’s located. Here’s what I found about this beautiful island:
Vanuatu is located about three-quarters of the way from Hawaii to Australia. It is west of Fiji and north of New Caledonia in the area known as Melanesia.
The four major islands which make up about half of the land area are in order of size – Espiritu Santo, Malekula, Erromango and Efate. Other large islands are Ambrym, Tanna, Epi, Vanua Lava, Gaua (Santa Maria), Ambae, Maewo, and Pentecost.
4709 square miles (slightly larger than Connecticut) 12 main islands, 58 inhabited islets, numerous uninhabited islets
Sea Area 262549 square miles. The beach is Eratap Beach on Vanuata island. The islands below are the provinces of Vanuatu
