Doug Tales 92: Natural Law, Part Two
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” This quote by inventor Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) shows that he understood many aspects of the second principle of natural law that relates to vibration. The theoretical physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955) expressed a similar idea when he said, “Everything in life is vibration.” Doug Mendenhall (1953-2020), in turn, studied both the scientific and scriptural bases of vibration and natural law. Doug summarizes these concepts in I See…Awake! (2015), on pages 42-43, and in an excerpt from his May 27, 2017 blog post, “Unconsciously What? ‘Competent.’” The blog post is reprinted in Conquering Spiritual Evil Blog Posts 2017-2019 (2020), on page 49.
Natural Law Principle 2: Everything is in motion or vibrates. I had not contemplated this until one time a sighted friend said, “Even a dead body vibrates.”
At the most fundamental level everything is pure vibratory energy, from us here in a Telestial world to the Gods of Light dwelling in Celestial burnings. It may manifest in various ways, but it is still vibratory energy.
In D&C 88:11-13 our God tells us about the Light of Christ, how it is in the sun, moon, stars and in all things, everywhere. And then He says, “And the light which shineth, which giveth you light, is through him who enlighteneth your eyes, which is the same light that quickeneth your understandings. Which light proceedeth forth from the presence of God to fill the immensity of space—the light which is in all things…”
Light is frequency and that is vibration.
Science has told us that if we could see down to the atomic level, we’d see that it is mainly space. Matter is merely energy in a state of vibration, nothing is really solid. In order to become what we perceive as “solid” in this mortal condition, vibration rate must be decreased. We will show examples of this later in this book. We will look at what it takes for a Celestial being to be able to manifest itself in a Telestial world without his or her glory.
There are reasons that people don’t become unconsciously competent in a good way:
[One reason is] people spend too much time in the how – techniques and skills. We have discussed this before in the book. We need to focus on the why. If we do, the how will take care of itself. People have too many excuses like, “I have no idea how to do this!” They associate with people of gospel “inaction” or negativity. Your vibrational frequency has a natural tendency to lower itself to match those you associate with. Think about a time when you learned some amazing things or concepts and started to share them with other people. As you share, you see them close down, stop listening and actually becoming afraid of you or for you. Do you soon feel deflated? That is because the adversary has worked his magic and brought you down to their level. Do you think the opposite might also be true? If you associate with those of a higher frequency, will yours increase? Might be something to consider.
