Metaphysics is the right
brain version of physics. Both physics and meta-physics are fields
which endeavor to explore and understand how the world was created
-- one with the left brain, one with the right.
There are 7 basic laws of the Universe and these are they:
1. Mentalism: The Universe is mental. All is mind.
2. Correspondence: As above, so below.
3. Vibration: Everything is in motion. Nothing is still.
4. Polarity: Everything has its pairs of opposites.
5. Rhythm: The pendulum swing manifests in everything. The measure
of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left.
6. Cause and Effect: There are many planes of causation but nothing
escapes this law.
7. Gender: Gender manifests on all planes.
Here is an example of each law in action in the everyday world.
1. The Law of Mentalism. Every thing that appears
in your world was once a thought you had. When I teach students
metaphysics, I ask them to indicate an important event in their
life and then to return to the place in time when they planted the
seed for this event with a thought. A woman told me she had suffered
in poverty for 7 years having foolishly bought a business in the
worst part of town. She realized this was because once she had prayed
to experience as broad and as deep a life as possible. That was
when this seed was planted.
2. The Law of Correspondence. This law teaches
us that we can understand the unseen by carefully observing what
we can see with our own two eyes. When a woman is about to go out
on a date with a new man, I encourage her to look at how he treats
the waitress and how he eats his meal. This is the way he will be
treating her and having sex with her after his guard is down (should
she choose to continue to date him).
3. The Law of Vibration. Everything vibrates.
Nothing is still. This Law helps us to understand the essence of
things. It is this fine network of vibrations that connects us with
every other living thing. You might picture it as an invisible world
wide web. It is in tune with the vibrations of the universe that
we attract and are attracted to every experience in our life. To
use a metaphor, suppose you like country and western music. If you
set your radio dial to country and western you will not hear classical
or jazz music. If you vibrate at a peaceful level, you will not
meet people who are violent.
4. The Law of Polarity. Everything has its opposite.
This law helps us to understand the principles of yin and yang.
Some energy attracts and some energy repels. One is not better than
the other but both exist. I like to think of the astronomical world
where one body can capture another by pulling it into its sphere
of influence. This principle can be understood in life when we recognize
the truth in this saying: If you want him to be more of a man, be
more of a woman.
5. The Law of Rhythm. The pendulum swing manifests
in everything. The measure of the swing to the left is the measure
of the swing to the right. This law operates in life quite visibly
with people who are bipolar. One day they're up, the next they're
down. For most people, the law is realized when they become very,
very happy. The law dictates that next they will be very, very sad.
To correct this is simple: To avoid being very unhappy, avoid being
6. Cause and Effect: There are many planes of
causation but nothing escapes this law. The best writing on this
law, which is the law of Karma, is found in Emerson's Essay on Compensation.
It is available for free download on many internet sites.
7. Gender: Gender manifests on all planes. This
law works in our lives by helping us to see that each male has an
inner female within him and each female has an inner male. Both
are necessary for creation and regeneration. These Laws of the Universe
are meta-physical but they are as certain as the law of physics.
What goes up must come down. You can be certain of it!
