13. AS YE SOW SO SHALL YE REAP. ALSO CALLED "THE LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT."
Now this is the law that most choose to ignore or misunderstand when they do not want to take personal responsibility for their manifested experience, perceived "good" and/or (especially) "bad".
God created "cause" and "effect" so that each soul fragment would recognize that when he did a specific act, say stole a car from his brother, that there would be an "effect" to his trans gression, such as perhaps going to jail. But the nature of the ef fect is produced in a way unique to each individual fragment which will bring the greatest opportunity for the UNDERSTANDING of the lesson for that soul fragment. Unfortunately, for many the repeat and repeat of similar/same "errors" has continued over the course of some thousands of years. Yes, it is by choice that the soul would refuse to take personal responsibility for his thoughts, words and deeds. The catch is ALL ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL WHICH OC CURS WITHIN THEIR MANIFESTED ILLUSION whether or not one WISELY chooses to finally recognize and accept this Truth is entirely up to each. They will still "suffer" the conse quences of their actions which are contrary to God's laws, and/or they will also reap the Divine benefits of under standing and obeying God's laws.
Now in your "Eastern" religions, Hinduism and Buddhism, they have a term called "karma" defined inFunk & Wagnals Dictio nary as: "1. The Spiritual force generated by one's action which determines one's reincarnated situation. 2. Loosely, fate. 3. Vibration." Karma, even by this definition does not accurately describe the same purpose or meaning of simple "cause and ef fect". The term "karma", loosely believed by many implies you must do this or that, or this or that has occurred because it is your "karma" implying that it is also your "fate". One can fall in the rut of blaming all experiences on their "karma" and there fore not adequately learning the lesson to release this perceived "karma". The definition of karma implies that yes, there are consequences to your actions, but that you are doomed to "pay back" lifetime after lifetime, and does not take into considera tion the release of "pay-back" when the lesson is truly learned by the soul fragment. Remember this: AT ANY INSTANT WHEN THE TRUE UNDERSTANDING AND RECOGNI TION HAS OCCURRED regarding the ERROR and effects of one's actions, THAT ONE CAN, THROUGH SELF-FOR GIVENESS, RELEASE any repetition of A TRANSGRESSION AGAINST ANOTHER, SELF, AND GOD.
For example, let's say that the one known as "Hitler" who was responsible for the deaths of millions, truly recognized and un derstood his transgressions AGAINST GOD in the moments be fore he made his death transition. (All things are possible, friends!) And in those moments before his "death" from this lifestream, he prayed to the God within him for FORGIVENESS of self and all others and that HE then put HIS will into GOD's WILL to be of service ONLY unto THE FATHER. Now for ones who believe in "karma", they would say that the soul en ergy that was Hitler would be doomed to the same persecution he committed on others, as well as at least a million deaths at the hands of a tyrant such as was he. And if "Hitler" refused to see his folly, then undoubtedly his SELF-judgement before GOD would be severe. But, depending on the level of his un derstanding or learning of the lessons, his "pay-back" could be that he becomes ONE who devotes his entire next reincarnation lifestreams to THE SERVICE OF GOD by helping his fellow brethren overcome their "spiritual" starvation. Do you think then, that it is not possible that God would not welcome HIS servant back within HIS fold of Truth, Love and Light?
One must never forget that even the "victims" of Hitler's hatred chose their victimhood. If ones choose NOT to become "victims" to any one or any situations by always honoring GOD within self and all others and thus, living in balance with the LAWS of GOD and The Creation, THEY would no longer cre ate "victimizers" such as HITLER. It is really so simple. If THEY learn their lessons of how and why THEY created their victimhood, then they would ALSO FORGIVE themselves and ALL who they perceived victimized them, so that they, too, could release and be free of the bondage of "karma". And on top of forgiveness, their release may involve actually being ever THANKFUL to THE FATHER WITHIN for bringing the les son to them and thus helping them recognize THEIR self-trans gressions and becoming now FREE from the BONDAGE of vic timhood. Do you see the picture now? The responsibility for all manifested experiences lies with ALL who share in and exist within the experience!
14. YOU MUST HONOR ALL COMMITMENTS MADE IN SERVICE TO GOD, THE FATHER,THE ONE WITHIN.
Now let us describe what commitments are made in service to GOD verses commitments of this manifested illusion. Your MOST IMPORTANT commitment in service to GOD is to WISELY understand and obey THE LAWS OF GOD AND THE CREATION which we are unfolding for you here. This is THE excellent way for honoring self and GOD within ALL oth ers in service to God and The Creation. Simply, UNDER STAND AND OBEY THE LAWS OF GOD AND THE CREATION. You ones have made this commitment difficult unto yourselves and it needn't any longer be so. YOU NOW HAVE THE LAWS BEFORE YOU and you need not any longer claim ignorance or misunderstanding. DO YOU SEE?! Claim YOUR DIVINE HOLY GODNESS NOW! WE ARE ALL ONE! THE TIME IS NOW BEFORE YOU TO KNOW AND OWN THE TRUTH!
Now let us discuss the "other" types of commitments made by first defining what "commitment" means in Funk & Wagnal's Dictionary: "1. The act of committing (to devote oneself unre servedly), or the state of being committed. 2. An engagement or pledge to do something." Other commitments which are made in service to GOD include marriage, parenthood, feeding and tending the physically hungry, poor and ill, and SPREAD ING THE WORD OF TRUTH ABOUT THE SPIRIT OF GOD AND THE CREATION to ALL of your spiritually ignorant and starved brethren who will listen.
Now a commitment you make to "buy" a house or car on "credit" to be paid by FUTURE income, is shaky at best for both parties agreeing to these terms. "Credit" in this circum stance is a promise to pay later at some designated future time. Many families are now finding and many more will find that they cannot honor this promise to pay because many have lost or will lose their jobs and thus do not have the "income" to pay. This is an example of a commitment which is NOT in service to God. TRILLIONS of credit "dollars" have been made BY FEW by the manipulation of "credit" and so, too, has TRILLIONS been LOST by the MANY who have become trapped in obli gations they cannot pay for. There are thousands of examples of "commitments" made of this type.
So if you make a promise or commitment to a fellow brother or sister to help them in some way such as pay them for a service performed for you, or to feed their pets and take care of their home while they are away, then your WORD represents your integrity to honor to the best of your ability ALL promises made to the other. Your personal power is in direct relationship to the integrity of your soul. This means that if your word of promise or commitment means nothing, then you dishonor yourself, your brethren and GOD and become "powerless" and thus a tool for evil. So the moral of this story is: think very carefully about ANY promises or commitments you make BEFORE you GIVE YOUR WORD. Do not give your word for some future "promise" unless you are CERTAIN you will be able to keep your word. And be certain you completely UNDERSTAND what any promise, oath or commitment, that is asked of you on this plane, MEANS before you give YOUR WORD to it. Be cause if you are not careful as in the case of many so-called "secret" organizations, societies and "Mystery Schools", your commitment to them may mean your inadvertent commitment TO EVIL. A commitment made to EVIL or Satan is NOT a commitment made IN SERVICE TO GOD and therefore is not recognized BY GOD!!!
