Learn to Deal with Racism Through the Application of Universal Law

I may need to clarify some things about universal law to make this concept clearer. I have been speaking about seeds and soil and crops but we do not live in an agrarian society anymore. The vast majority of people (in the US, at least) get their food from a market.

A few families have small gardens at home but their gardens do not supply the bulk of what they eat. For most people, gathering food means going to the local grocer to shop.

So, I want to back up and make sure this idea of sowing and reaping makes sense. Many texts that speak about universal law in farming terms were written during a time when families lived on or were connected in some way to a farm.

For example, I grew up in the ’70s and ’80s. My childhood home sits on a plot of land that belonged to the Armstrong family before we bought it. Growing up, a portion of my neighborhood was still an active farm. As children, we rode our bikes down the paths left by the tractor Mr. Armstrong drove through his farm.

No one lives like that anymore.

Why All the Agricultural References to Explain Universal Law?

The reason we have so many agricultural references to explain universal law is that the process by which the Law works most closely mirrors what we see in nature. All insects, plants, animals, fish and people come into being through an orderly process. A seed gets planted. Over time, that seed germinates until it breaks open and a new life form comes forth.

In every instance, a seed gets planted. The only difference can be found in what gets planted and how it gets planted. For example, we produce apples by planting an apple seed in the ground. But, we get a puppy through the seed being planted in a dog.

The basic process is the same but what and how changes.

Still, everything we see, touch, taste, hear or smell comes to us through this orderly process of a seed being planted. Because we find no variations on this process anywhere, we call this process universal law.

Why Do We Have to Wait for the Seed to Become an Expression?

Every seed has its own specific gestation period. For example, it takes 3 to 4 years for an apple seed to become a fruit bearing tree. Similarly peach trees take 2 to 4 years to bear fruit.

On the animal side, an elephant remains pregnant for almost 2 years (22 months) before giving birth. But the gestation period for a primate depends upon the species. It takes 187 days (6 months) for a baboon to be born whereas a gorilla requires 230-250 days (9 months).

I am not sure we can answer the question of “why” but we can say that each seed has a specific gestation period. You may be planting seeds of plenty expecting them to germinate the day you planted them and that’s just not how our world works.

Nothing just appears overnight. Whatever you see has been growing on the inside for some length of time.

But, I Feel Like I’ve Been Planting Seeds of Plenty Forever

Yes, it can feel like that. I think that’s why Paul counseled to Galatians: “Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for you reap whatever you sow…So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up.”

You can trust this process of Law.

In the meantime, make sure you plant (and continue to plant) what you want. Apples only come from apple seeds. Love only comes from seeds of love. Peace only comes from seeds of peace. If you do not want discord, do not plant it.

We may not like it but the expression always proves the seed sown. So, you do not have to fool yourself because your life proves what you have been thinking and feeling mostly.

Prioritize Your Spiritual Work Above All Else

Here’s the thing: once you plant the seed, the harvest comes. Just as you should not expect apples when you’ve laid down seeds for oranges. You should not expect joy when you’ve laid down seeds for sadness. Plant what you want and only what you want.

If we have drawn a joyous experience, then we know we planted seeds of joy. It cannot be otherwise. And, if we have drawn a painful experience full of sadness, then we know we planted seeds of pain and sadness. It cannot be otherwise.

This is why our spiritual development must take first priority in our lives. We seek first the kingdom and its righteousness  because universal law works with us whether we are conscious of it or not.

Where Do Man-made Laws Fit Into this Puzzle?

In Your Life, McArthur gives a wonderful definition to help us recognize universal law. He says, “The Universal Laws are unbreakable, unchangeable principles of life that operate inevitably, in all phases of our life and existence, for all human beings everywhere, all the time” (McArthur).

So, the law of gravity is a universal law. It is an unbreakable, unchangeable principle of life that operates inevitably, in all phases of our life and existence, for all human beings everywhere, all the time. The law of aerodynamics operates this way too.

You cannot break the law of gravity. But you can break yourself against the law of gravity if you disobey it. You cannot break the law of aerodynamics. But you can break yourself against the law of aerodynamics if you disobey it. These laws do not change based upon who you are. They remain true forever and for all time — never turning on and off — always perpetual.

They also do not force you to comply. Compliance remains voluntary. Gravity cooperates with you as long as you cooperate with it. Aerodynamics cooperate with you as long as you cooperate with it.

In a similar fashion, the law of wealth does not force you to comply. If you comply with it, it will bring you all the wealth you desire. Act in opposition to the law of wealth and you get predictable results.

But What About Racism, Sexism, Ageism, Homophobia, Etc?

Perhaps one of the reasons we have difficulty accepting God’s Law as absolute and undeviating is because we keep thinking of it in terms of man’s law. “A Universal Law is not like the laws of our government; rather, it is a basic principle of life. Instead of stating that you must do this or you must not do this — as statutory laws do — the Universal Laws explain to use how life works” (McArthur).

“Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain” (Psalm 127:1). The LORD in Scripture refers to Universal Law. Unless the universal law builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the universal law watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.

In various regions of the US, people with brown skin could not buy property. Man’s law said that people who look a certain way cannot own homes in certain areas. But man made laws change periodically. That’s how you know you are not dealing with something that is universal.

Stop Believing in External Forces; Believe Only in Universal Law

Withdraw your attention from man-made laws and give it wholly to universal law. You will find that all the wealth, health and happiness you can stand will rush in to create your experience. The only agreement you need to be wealthy, healthy, happy and whole is your own agreement with universal law.

“Universal Law applies everywhere; the man-made law may apply only to a particular jurisdiction or it may vary from one area to another. A Universal Law applies to everyone; a man-made law only to those in a particular area” (McArthur).

Eula McClaney proved Universal Law

Eula McClaney proved Universal Law

How do we know this is true? Because we have people like Eula McClaney who, in the 1930s with only a 6th grade education, began to amass a fortune in real estate. Born in 1914, by the time she made her transition in 1986 (at 72 years old), Ms. McClaney was worth over $300 million dollars.

She wrote a book detailing how she worked with God to create her fortune called God, I Listened.

But They Always Let a Few Through…

As a teacher of mystical wisdom, I would like nothing more than to eradicate the belief that “they always let a few through” from the minds of all people.

Either God works or It doesn’t.

Either you agree that God is unchanging, undeviating, unbreakable or God is not. You cannot have it both ways. If you insist on believing that “they always let a few through,” then at least follow up by saying, “My God is partly mighty.”

Almighty Power operates through you. If you believe that something external to you can check the power of God that flows through you, then no power on heaven or earth can reverse the kinds of expressions you draw to yourself.

Because our experience proves what we believe, your life will reflect back to you this belief and the statements I’ve written will sound like the mad writings of a spiritual teacher trying to sell you a bill of goods.

So, Why Did My Soul Need to Experience Racism?

We exist for the purpose of learning lessons through Universal Laws. As we learn to cooperate with God’s Law, we become transformed. “Do not be conformed to the this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God — what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:2).

Every time we cooperate with God’s Law, our minds transform in some way and we come up a little higher. We are like the caterpillar becoming the butterfly. Eventually, we throw off the limitations of the cocoon and can take advantage of the higher laws.

Although different forms of the same insect, the caterpillar cannot do what the butterfly can do. As a butterfly, it can take advantage of the law of aerodynamics. It can soar on winds and rise to amazing heights. It can travel across continents.

For example, the monarch butterfly travels as far as 3,000 miles during its lifetime. No caterpillar can hope to accomplish such a feat until it becomes the butterfly.

Dare to throw off the limitations of the cocoon of racism. Your divine assignment wants to find expression through you. As long as you maintain a belief in an external power, you hold at bay all that God wants to do through you. As you begin to recognize that nothing external to you has power over you, you develop wings and you find that you can fly high above limited thinking.

Here’s What I Want You To Do

Figure out what you truly want. Really take some time to define it. Get as much clarity around your desire as you can. Then ask the Father to reveal to you the seed needed to produce the expression you want to bring forth.

You are on the prosperous path. You wouldn’t be reading this blog if you were not. Your next step is to gather the right seeds and plant them, detaching from how and when it will come about. Remember, every seed has its own gestation period.

No one can tell you how long it will take for the seeds you’ve planted to germinate. “About that day no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the son, but only the Father” (Matthew 24:36). Just make sure you take enough love (oil) to remain patient and to keep watch for your harvest. Do not deviate from the belief that what you want can be yours.

And when your seeds germinate and sprout, you will know that no one — not a racist, not a sexist, not a homophobe, no. one. — shall be able to take away that which the LORD, Universal Law, has given you.


A Testimony for The Money Poems

“I experienced how The Money Poems work one day while cooking dinner. I’d just started reciting my poems two days prior, when our internet went out at the house.

My mother had gotten out of the hospital a few weeks prior. Since my parents are retired, the hospital stay altered their monthly income. Basically, things were tight and my father needed an extra week to pay the full amount.

He called to get an extension and reconnection of services. The customer service representative told him there was nothing that could be done until the full amount was paid.

When my dad told me what was said, I encouraged him to call back. I also suggested my mother be with him on the phone for the second call.

As my parents sat in the home office waiting to speak to a representative for the second time, I completed dinner and picked up my copy of The Money Poems. I began reciting, softly, the poem of the day, which was Wednesday. I would recite the poem and go back to reading the book.

Once I heard them on the phone with the new representative and his supervisor, I continuously recited the Wednesday poem. I was relaxed and smiling every time I recited the poem. Once I felt completely at ease, I stopped and continued to read the book.

When my parents completed their phone call, they informed me that the supervisor saw they’d never been disconnected before and agreed to turn on the internet service within the hour. I smiled to myself and announced dinner was ready.”
