Doug Tales 98: Natural Law, Part Eight
What do we love? What do we really want in our lives, as shown by our daily thoughts, feelings and actions? Care/Focus — the eighth natural law principle — sums up all of the others with its emphasis on time and attention, which Doug Mendenhall often called spiritual currency. Currency — what are we buying with our life energy? What are we buying as a society with our collective behaviors? Doug teaches about the connection between our acted upon wants and their fruit in I See…Awake! (2015), on pages 47-48:
Natural Law Principle 8: Everything depends on our focus—what we care about. It is the driving force of our thoughts and emotions, it is love.
Some call this the “generative principle” because what we focus our will on long enough is ultimately what gets created in our existence. Perhaps when more people become aware of this principle and begin caring about change and becoming Zion, the world atmosphere could change.
In his work, Mark Passio calls this principle the “Lost Principle.” We seem to lack this dynamic of care in today’s world or most people don’t know that what we care about on a day to day basis acts as the driving force of our thoughts and actions. Care can also be called the “generator” of the quality of our experience here on earth or the generative principle. The word generative or generator is derived from the Latin verb genere, which means “to create.”
This principle can be summed up with this: “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” (1 John 4:16)
“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.” (1 John 4:7)
These eight principles are called God’s natural laws that affect all of us. These laws will be demonstrated by example and referred to throughout this work. These eight principles are some of the hidden knowledge that anciently was obtained in the “mystery” schools. Explanations of this hidden knowledge are in the next few chapters. They lay the foundation needed in order to understand how this world works and how Light operates as well as Dark. It is always our choice which we will participate in. We have our agency.
“What we care enough to put our will behind is ultimately what gets created in our world. This world is the way it is because most people do not care enough (even if they SAY they want things to be different) to change it through their actions.” (Mark Passio)
