Man-made laws are made up by people to elicit desired behaviors from others. Because they are capricious in nature, they may or may not be enforceable or enforced. When man-made laws conflict with the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God, then there will be observed the so-called “unintended consequences” that man uses to describe the natural results that grow out of the conflict between the man-made law and God’s Law.
On the other hand Universal Laws, or God’s Laws, as I choose to refer to them, are unbreakable. We can only break ourselves upon them. One of God’s Laws will never conflict with another of God’s Laws. In fact, they work in concert or perfect harmony with each other. We will never find an example where these laws of God conflicted with each other and so-called “unintended consequences” are created. I really like the thought that when we get to the other side, we will learn that life really was “fair” after all, as it relates to God’s or Nature’s Laws.
God does not have to personally enforce the breaking of His Laws or the Laws of Nature. When an apple breaks from the tree as the lesson outlined, God does not have to swoop in and push the apple to the ground. The Law of Gravity carries its own natural enforcement provision; the apple just falls. This is true with the other Laws of Nature and Nature’s God. In church, we sometimes read or hear about the wrath of God. I am starting to wonder if that is a proper characterization of Him. For example, when a people choose to do evil (bad things), or violate God’s Laws to the point they are destroyed. Was it God who zoomed in and destroyed them personally? Or was it destruction due to the natural results (cause and effect) of their bad choices and violations of God’s Laws?
For me, the real prize of dream-chasing is the discovery of the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God which govern the successful acquisition of the dream so pursued. Then with the discovery that these laws exist, that they are immutable, what they are and how they work, along with the proper application of these laws to my dream, I learn how to work with the laws of the universe to control my natural surroundings, condition and my very environment.
The effect this “increased awareness” can have on my daily tasks is that
1) I will learn the cause and effect of all my actions and therefore will work with more deliberate actions.
2) My choices will be less random.
3) I will seek to know which of the laws I need to be focusing on to most effectively and efficiently reach my goals and dreams.
4) This will take the guesswork out of how to prioritize my daily activities, among many other effects.
