Recently I have noticed many posts on Facebook and articles in the media regarding all sorts of attempts to control the actions and beliefs of others and I thought to take a moment to address this from the perspective of spiritual law.

Please note I am addressing this from the core threads that connect all religions, I am not addressing religious traditions themselves.
The defining characteristic that separates the lighter forces in the universe from the darker forces is the acknowledgement of free will. Spirit has granted humans the ability to use our free will to make our own choices as we see fit. Darkness came about through the disagreement with the concept of freewill and instead replaced the love with control, greed manipulation, and arrogance.
If we are to follow the highest spiritual laws, we must respect the free will of others choices and beliefs, regardless of whether we find them to be in disagreement with our own ways of looking at the world or even if we feel said choices are not in a person’s or the greater good’s best interest.
To not respect another’s free will is to create karmic imbalance that will have to be made up in the future.
If a person holds a certain belief and is made to act against that belief by forcible means through the wielding of human power, that will create karma between all parties and a web of energetic mess.
For example, let’s say a shop chooses not to sell pork because the owner is Jewish and keeps kosher. Then lets say a person comes in who doesn’t agree with kosher beliefs and accuses the shopkeeper of discrimination because the customer wants, and believes he is entitled to, pork. Said customer then sues the shop keeper because he believes he is “more right” than some “silly old Jewish law”
Loads of karma is created.
I was sued for removing a problem parent from one of my businesses recently. The parent had an emotional reaction and being an attorney, filed a frivolous lawsuit. That created karma which needs to be balanced in order to prevent it from carrying over.
It gets hairier when a person is acting upon beliefs that they believe serve the divine through their religious tradition as it is their attempt to serve and honor Spirit.
Remember that every religion was originally descended from Spirit’s Truth and then shaped by the hand of man through the application of free will. One of my teachers talks about his concept of “mandalism;” that is creating a new mandala to include all of the world’s religions. There is beauty and truth to be found in every light religion.
The only way we will get back to the pure love that characterizes the divine light side of the universe and push out the darkness is to respect both the law of freewill and others’ choices. Remember, to attempt to control, force, coerce, attack, or manipulate another, especially when it relates to their religious beliefs, will create karmic weight that will hold us back and give us more to worry about in future lifetimes.
The caveat here is when an action creates physical harm to another sentient being; in this case we have the right to step in and intercede. Unless, and this is where it gets very complex, it is within the karmic relationship between the parties to engage in the behavior. If it is, and we intercede, we involve ourselves in that karma.
As always, Divine Law trumps Human Law as it is infinite….and karma can be a real bitch, as they say.
