In part two of this series of posts, we will explore the Universal Principles of Grace, Mirrors and Free will.
The Principle of Grace
Grace is a sub-principle directly connected to the principle of Cause and Effect (Karma); Grace is directly ruled by intention and the ability to show mercy and compassion. As we are aware, thoughts and feelings are energy – intention is a clear energy combination of thought and emotion – intention can be either a positive or negative force.
When your actions activate the principle of Cause and Effect (Karma), Grace is activated by your intent – if your intention is pure, grace can lessen the impact of the situation.
Example: – You are involved in an accident; you have hit someone with your vehicle [cause]. Rather than driving away, you immediately stop and assist in the situation [Grace]; you are treated with more lenience as the Driver [Effect-lessened].
Grace as a principle, is concerned more with the ‘spirit’ of a law, rather that the ‘letter’ of a law.
The Principle of Mirrors (Reflection)
Your life, everyone and everything that makes up your existence, is a direct reflection of you – your thoughts, beliefs and feelings – the conscious and unconscious. Every person and situation you experience is a mirror of some aspect of yourself.
The principles of energy are always neutral – how you perceive the principle playing out is the positive or negative charge, an example of this is… think of someone you truly admire, the qualities you perceive them to have, these qualities are mirrored to you by this person, qualities that are too present in your ‘make-up. Likewise those you dislike are mirrors of other aspects of you. The same can be observed in situations you face, daily, in your life – any situation you have a reaction to (whether perceived as negative or positive), reflects some aspect of your thoughts, feelings, beliefs or social programming. That which you dislike in yourself, you will dislike in others, a projection of yourself onto an external thing or person.
Example: – You have a colleague that is very outgoing and confident – you admire these traits. This is a reflection of yourself that is astute, confident and outgoing. At times you may not display these traits (if at all), but they are yours. Likewise, a friend that you find to be judgemental, critical and angry, he or she is a mirror of the aspects of yourself that are judgemental, critical and angry. You avoid (or confront) a certain group of people who you feel display qualities you dislike or find unacceptable – this is often a projection of aspects within yourself that you fear.
The purpose of mirrors, reflection and projection is to show you areas within yourself that need acknowledgement, change or growth – when you follow through and face feared aspects where necessary, you are rising above fear and experiencing unconditional love. Take some time to truly experience and understand these universal principles and then put them to use in your life… opportunities to grow expand and sometimes release that which no longer serve you.
