Quote

Freedom is the gift of civilization made possible by the enforcement of LAW.” (Urantia Papers 134:6.1).

Lesson

Thought Adjuster: “Dear child, the above quote is concise and to the point. There is no freedom outside of LAW [the adherence to the universal and cosmic Laws] as unbridled freedom is not conducive to overall freedom — the highest good.

Lucifer rebelled against Divine Laws and campaigned for unrestrained personal liberties. This resulted in planetary chaos and, to this day, humanity still has to deal with the horrendous consequences of such blatant acts of insubordination.

“There is no such thing as individual freedom if it is claimed without taking into account overall freedom. Such a claim of personal freedom at the expense of others’ God-given rights to Freedom is utmost selfishness and turns the individual into a cosmic outlaw rather than a cosmic freedom fighter.

“The LAW is the adherence to the Golden Rule that teaches the individual all around respect — toward the self and others. It has its own in-built safeguard.

“’Treat others as you want to be treated’ admonishes you to go within and to check your attitude toward yourself and others. Respect should be all-inclusive and undiscriminating toward any of God’s creatures.

“How can you respect yourself if you condone unbridled liberties and are harming yourself and others in the process? In everything you think, speak, and do, take others into account as you live in a community — in a greater organism — whose well being is affected if any part malfunctions.

“Throughout the ages, civilizations emerged that put in place meaningful laws so as to preserve the equilibrium of their communities and protect the rights of their citizens. It is not because you can do something, that you should do it. Love implies self-restraint and the dedication of the smaller self to much greater agendas than its own.

“Laws are there to preserve the Peace. That goes for inner laws as well as external ones. The inner laws for you to abide by are the Laws governed by Truth, Beauty and Goodness as well as Love, Compassion and Empathy. They are meant to preserve your integrity; they are meant to assure you that you are progressing and on the right path. They are meant to enlighten and harmonize you.

“For those who place weight on such criteria, it is easier to comply with the laws of society as they have developed inner freedom, manifested by the Love that pours out from their open heart.

“Whenever you make a ‘free-will’ decision, stop and ponder if it is really taken ‘freely’ or if it stems from an addictive behavior meant to simply gratify yourself. Decisions based on greed, lust, jealousy or the acquisition of power over others are not reflective of inner freedom.

“The role of society is to issue laws in sync with the Golden Rule in order to protect its citizens against outlaws without scruples. This is how true freedom comes about, allowing the citizenship to express itself in Truth, Beauty and GoodnessLove — rather than being held hostage by fears and anxieties.

Closing

“How truly free are you? Start by scrutinizing your own life so that you can detect what is holding you back in your ascension process. You cannot ascend to higher realms of experience if you are weighed down by the dead weight of misguided intentions.”
