AS ABOVE, SO BELOW
These few words are key to multitudes of information. It will benefit some readers for me to quote a bit of “The Lord’s Prayer” here:
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done
On Earth as it is in Heaven.
“Seek ye first the Kingdom of God” is a Divine instruction. While the whole “God” argument can highjack the topic, it won’t because the premise is simple, and we thank Alcoholics Anonymous for giving us this simple guideline: the God of YOUR understanding. That’s where anyone starts. The definitions of God evolve with the individual (again, every view is valid) and should grow as life experiences show us the workings of our universe. While some might use mainstream religion as a crutch to hobble along on, others take the basics and grow from them. At some point, where we all meet in an open spiritual environment, God is quite obvious. Meanwhile, we each have our own concept and personal Higher Power. The common denominator is that It has properties we have not harnessed or developed, and cannot on our own. We as individuals are not the whole picture, but we are a microcosm of it (like the broccoli.)
Seeking the kingdom of God is observing how the Creation (universe) works sustainably. Adhering to the ‘laws’ given us by sure-footed experience from both those who went before us, and our own life experiences, we make ourselves more amiable to those Higher Powers which can show us the way to ever-higher spiritual awareness.
“Thy Will be done”, therefore, is that the Divine Plan unfolds according to the sustainable and eternal principles sentience has constructed, and by adhering to those principles we collectively focus our Free Will in alignment with the Divine’s.
“On Earth as it is in Heaven” instructs us to coordinate our intentions with our actions. If we act as if we are friends, but our intention is to control another, then imbalance occurs, causing disruption in the overall fabric. This is one conspicuous distinction between a Darkworker and a Lightworker.
