Doug Tales 22: Natural Law = God’s Law
Doug Mendenhall starts out his book I See…Awake! (2015) (on pages 11-13) by explaining how natural law is used by good to create freedom or evil to create slavery. He emphasized “natural law” whenever he was involved in a workshop, seminar, class, or writing books or on this blog. Doug looked for and saw natural law at work all around him, and constantly worked to increase his perception and understanding of natural law.
God has natural laws. These laws can be used for good or for evil; it is up to the individual to choose. No matter whether the actions of an individual are morally good or bad, they are brought about by exactly the same laws. The difference is solely one of intention. When we meditate or pray with gratitude and have faith that our God is working in our favor, we can co-create the world that we desire.
“There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated. And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.” (D&C 130:20-21)
Our Father in Heaven and the Gods of Light have given us natural laws (God’s laws) as the above scripture plainly states. If we operate by God’s natural law then we are fully conscious human beings. When we continue with that state of conscious- ness, we can become an “enlightened” being. From this point on, when we keep following the path of our Lord Jesus Christ, we can become a redeemed being, then a translated being, and then on to becoming a son of God. If we operate against God’s natural laws, we become dark and become enlightened in the dark arts. We then have the ability to travel that path to becoming an “ascended being,” and eventually all the way to becoming a son of Satan. A conscious person of light has the knowledge of what is right behavior and what is wrong behavior, which is surely enhanced by his or her connection to the Spirit and God. The world we get is the world we enact or co-create into existence.
For example, one of God’s natural laws is the law of freedom. It states that as the aggregate morality of a people increases, their freedom also increases proportional to that level of morality. The converse is also true, as the aggregate morality of any given people decreases, they become more enslaved.
The Book of Mormon puts this quite succinctly about “this land” we live in.
“Behold, this is a choice land and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ.” (Ether 2:12)
If we obey our God, we will be a free land; if not, we will have bondage and captivity. Ancient Israelites and Nephites are examples of this. Obey God = Freedom. Disobey God = Bondage/Slavery.
Have you ever considered that natural law works both ways—with light and dark? The God of Darkness will answer his follower’s prayers just like our Father in Heaven will answer ours. The natural laws are there for the choosing. When we receive a blessing, it is because we obeyed the law or laws that allows the universe to fulfill that blessing. If you send out a curse, whether inadvertently or with intent, you obeyed that law that allowed it to be sent out.
This book will show you in many cases how Light works and also how evil works. Through the eyes of my friend, Kitten, my daughter and other friends with spiritual sight we will get a “behind the scenes” look at Light and also Dark to see what they do and how they do it. Why? So you can get an understanding of how the dark operates in order to overcome it, which will be important in your life especially when you are being plagued by them—so you won’t be plagued by them. Also, because evil mimics light and by seeing how that works, it will be possible to understand how our Father and His Son work. If our Father or the Lord Jesus Christ does something, the Adversary will copy it in darkness and for evil. There is much to be learned on how light operates by understanding how evil has copied it. For most that might be a new concept; nevertheless it is true, and it will be shown throughout this book.
