What is The Law of One?
By W. T. Samsel

Lately, it seems I have been concentrating my writings primarily on the present state of our social, political and world situation. Perhaps this is due to the sense of urgency that I am feeling, which compels me to speak out on the true issues with which we should all be concerned at this time. I expend a lot of energy in this pursuit. While all of these things are extremely important at this time, perhaps I should reserve some of that energy and direct it towards what is of the utmost importance at this time, the reintroduction of the Law of One.

What is the Law of One? Where does one begin to explain something as complicated, and yet as simple, as the Law of One? Perhaps it is that something, which many people spend their entire lifetimes, trying to find.Maybe it is that something we are all looking for, without knowing what it is, or being able to define it. We remember it somehow, somewhere deep down inside. We have a longing for this, and search for it out there, in the physical world.

We carry within ourselves, soul memory of it. Soul memory is very different from our brain's facility for memory, for it is at the very core of our being. It is who we are, our talents and abilities; it is our nature and motivations. It is a part of our spiritual and physical make-up, and can be accessed through the practice of transcendental meditation. We do not have to keep running around like chickens with their heads cut off, trying to find something that we cannot identify; to fill that need in us that we cannot describe. The One Law rings true for so many, because they have been carrying it within themselves, all along. What happens, is that their soul memory is awakened, and what follows is enlightenment and understanding. If there is something missing in Life, if the world around us doesn't make sense, could it be because the Law of One has been repressed throughout our recorded history? Could it be that the Law of One is the missing something in our lives, in our communities, in our civilization?

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the universe,' limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons close to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from our prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all humanity and the whole of nature in its beauty."

-Albert Einstein.

Today, there are many preaching their own interpretations of spirituality, >from television evangelists to new age gurus. There is the prevalent fear-based traditional Christianity, wherein God will punish you, sinners go to hell, it's God's will, and we all need to be saved. Then there's the present new age extremists, who think only ågood' thoughts, send out only åpositive' vibrations, and don't let anything 'negative' intrude into their space.' From the extreme left, to the extreme right, the entire spiritual and religious spectrum can be daunting for the truth seekers. The trouble with most religions is that they demand total adherence to their own particular dogma, through which, people wind up directing negative emotions at others based on difference. It can be a vicious circle. With all these spiritual roads and no road map, how does one spiritually navigate?

We are all Spirits who possess a body and a mind. The physical body is merely a vehicle that the Spirit inhabits, in order to experience Life on the Earth plane. When we believe that the body we inhabit is truly who we are, as we are programmed to believe, then we are always searching outside of ourselves, for that elusive åsomething' which we can't describe. We look to that promotion at the office, or that new luxury car, or a relationship with another person. We look for answers from other people who we consider, authorities.

The church preaches that it is the work of the devil,' when an individual goes outside of it's established parameters, to explore other spiritual avenues. Well of course! If everyone discovered their own personal connection to God,' to the All that Is, then they wouldn't look to the church as the intermediary between God and man, would they? Hence, the church would be out of business; it would no longer be able to maintain its control over the masses!

We all inherit the ability to communicate directly with Creator and the Spirit world. We need to realize this. By meditating and going within, we are able to tap into soul memory. We can raise individual consciousness from its entrapment in the mundane trivia of the material world, and we can reconnect with the Source! Therefore, each individual plays an important role in determining our future. The Spirit is the direct link to God, because it is a part of God, just as each drop of water is a part of the ocean. Spirit is a part of all creation, and is the link to greater knowledge of the All that Is. We can have a better understanding of our lives, of why we are here and what we are here to do. Meditation is the key!

As a radio tunes into various frequencies of reception, so too does the conscious mind attune itself to various vibrational frequencies, and other states of being. Once the inward journey has begun, what unfolds is awakening and understanding. What unfolds is the Law of One. The Law of One is so complex, that I could spend the rest of my Life writing about it, trying to explain it. He also says that it's so simple, that any little child can understand it fully. The Law of One is the Law of Love. Jesus Christ said, "A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another! As I have loved you, that ye also love one another." The love that Christ displayed was unconditional love, One Law love! Many aspects of the One Law can still be found in Christ's words, in fact all of history's sacred messengers, from Christ to Krishna to White Buffalo Calf Woman, spoke about the various aspects of the Law of One. Unfortunately, as history attests, the Sons of Belial, to meet their needs and purposes, have altered these messages! Life, Love, Earth and Spirit are the four major elements of the Law of One. Love is the single, most powerful force in the universe . . . a positive force of unlimited potential! The effects of Love are cyclic in nature, in that the Love you send out comes back to you from others. The power of Love expands outwards and is amplified in this way, so the more love you send out, the more you will receive and the more you will have to give.

The power of Love can heal the sick, feed the hungry, clothe the poor, shelter the homeless and put an end to poverty. It can save the environment, save endangered species, and put an end to war! Our social, economic and religious structures pit us against each other in so many ways. We need to realize that we are not contestants! We are not in competition with each other, this is illusion! The truth is that we are all related, and love is the power that can bring us all together in peace and in harmony, with each other and all of creation. This One Law truth can set us free.

The Law of One is all about inclusion, about the true equality of all humanity, irrespective of skin color, social class, landmass of origin or spiritual beliefs. What dwells within the physical form is sacred and so, must be honored. What dwells within the human form is that which we must learn to honor in each other, and we must learn to allow each other to be free. The One Law is about freedom, the freedom to let the Inner Light within each of us shine through. To bring forth into the physical world, one's own unique expression of self, while allowing others to do the same. Why conformity? Control, control, control!

The One Law is also about the sanctity of Life, not only in the human sense but Life in all its forms. To live and to let live. Inflicting pain, suffering or death upon any living thing goes against the One Law. The One Law is about the sacredness of the Earth. We need to understand that the Earth is a living thing, and that She is the source of all that we need for our physical existence. We must cease attempting to reconfigure the natural environment. We must cease denuding the planet of its natural resources. We must cease driving untold numbers of other lifeforms into extinction, while polluting the air, land and sea with our waste. We must change the way we regard the land, the seas, the air and all lifeforms . . . for we are the stewards of the Earth.

The Law of One is also about the Creator's Love of infinite variety. Everything is unique and everything, according to the Creator's intention, is interconnected to everything else within the cosmic scheme of things. I once saw a bumper sticker that read . . . honor diversity. Again, we must accept and honor this, because it is the intent of the Creator that these truths exist. These aspects of the One Law hold true, no matter if you are a Hindu, Moslem, Christian or Jew. It doesn't matter what religion you practice, because we are all differing expressions, and these are merely differing avenues that lead to the same source. Truth is truth. We need to simply allow each other freedom, and learn to honor each other. The Law of One is simple, actually. It is about honoring each other, our animal relations and . Nobody should go without food, clothing, medicine or shelter. We do not need to spend millions and billions of dollars on weapons and war, and we don't need to destroy the planet to feed greed!

I believe the Law of One is the ultimate truth, that your heart and soul acknowledges deep within. By following and living the true principles of the Law of One, you will find what you have been searching for. You will attain peace and harmony within yourself, and with the world around you. Share with each other the infinite diversity and variety of mankind! These "differences" in expression and culture are there not to divide people, but to enhance their experience and to broaden their conception of the All that Is. There is coming a time when one will stand before another, and celebrate both the uniqueness of each and the oneness of the two. The Law of One is the ultimate truth that can set free all of humanity. It can raise the collective consciousness of mankind and therefore enable it to break free from the cycles of its history.
