Understanding The Universal Law of Compensation

''The wings of Time are black and white, Pied with morning and with night. Mountain tall and ocean deep Trembling balance duly keep.'' — Ralph Waldo Emerson This stanza from 'Compensation' conveys the idea that time is a blend of contrasting experiences, marked by both light and darkness. The phrase "wings of Time" symbolizes the passage of time, which encompasses both positive (morning) and negative (night) aspects. The mention of "Mountain tall and ocean deep" suggests the vast and varied dimensions of existence. The imagery of "Trembling balance duly keep" underscores the delicate equilibrium that is maintained despite these opposing forces. Overall, the stanza highlights the duality and balance inherent in the passage of time and the world's diverse experiences. _____ ''The Universe always seeks to balance itself, in fact, it demands it.''  — Michael Corthell None of us can avoid the consequen

The Nature of the Universe: Science Meets Religion: 12 Universal Laws

Everything that exists, seen and unseen, is connected to each other, and inseparable from each other in a field of divine oneness. (see: Quantum Theory )  by Michael Corthell [NOTE: The concept of Oneness, implying unity and interconnectedness, suggests that everything in the universe is fundamentally linked.] However, the Unified Field Theory (UFT), also referred to as the Law of Fields, proposes the idea that electromagnetism and gravity can be explained as different facets of a single fundamental field. The goal of this theory is to integrate these two primary forces into a unified framework. It's crucial to understand that the Unified Field Theory hasn't been proven or definitively confirmed. Scientists and researchers are actively engaged in comprehending and constructing a unified theory that effectively merges electromagnetism and gravity. To sum up, while the notion of unity or oneness is a philosophical concept, the scientific pursuit of a unified field theo

The Law of Attraction is a Secret You Should Know

''If you can see it clearly in your mind, you can hold it in your hands.''  by Michael Corthell What is one of the secrets of getting what you want out of life? The 'secret' in attracting what you want or the person you want to become? The Law of Attraction is the belief that by focusing on either positive or negative thoughts a person chooses to bring positive or negative experiences into their life. We all are subject to the governing laws of the Universe. One of those governing laws is the Law of Attraction. It is also known as Karma. Emerson talked about it in his famous essay, Compensation . ''It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no person can sincerely try to help another without helping him or herself. Serve and you shall be served. If you love and serve people, you cannot, by any hiding or stratagem, escape the remuneration.'' — Ralph Waldo Emerson The Law of Attraction is the a

The Universe in Balance: Compensation and Karma

 by Michael Corthell Like a spinning top or a twisting gyroscope the universe always seeks to  balance itself.  The Law of Compensation states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction — cause and effect. If the pendulum swings one way, it will always swing back the other way. There is a rhythmic balance to all life, and in all things. ''The whole of what we know is a system of compensation. Every defect in one manner is made up in another. Every suffering is rewarded; every sacrifice is made up; every debt is paid.'' —Ralph Waldo Emerson Emerson's essay Compensation inspires human beings to do good. When it is studied and taken to heart, even great things. I encourage you to read this summary of Compensation's key points. The universe is a living, breathing organism. All things have morality. This morality within us is a viewpoint. The morality outside us is the Law of God. Justice is not postponed.

[Act] ...and you shall receive(so act good!)

The way a person (or even a country) treats you is their karma but how you react is yours. Karma comes for everyone eventually. No one can't get away with screwing people over their whole life, I don't care who you are or who you think you are. What goes around does come around. That's how the Universe works. Sooner or later the universe will serve you just the right amount of payback that you deserve. 

Finding Positive Life Satisfaction

by Michael Corthell Are you happy in your life, or about your life? That is a distinction that must be clearly defined. A regular state of happiness can be defined as an immediate, in-the-moment experience, on the other hand, positive life satisfaction is happiness that exists when we think about our lives as a whole, in its totality by looking at the big picture. Through absorbing the thoughts of people like Thoreau and Emerson, and developing a minimalist mindset, many are finding that a simpler lifestyle provides greater life satisfaction than a relentless pursuit of materialism. We can be happy 'going nowhere', but when we are happy with where we've been, and where we're going, that is thriving and flourishing. Then we can have peace and contentment in our lives. We then can call this state positive life satisfaction . Here are the key factors that contribute to positive life satisfaction: Having positive self-esteem. Having a pos

[Universal Laws] I've Got a Secret

“The mind has a powerful way of attracting things that are in harmony with it, good and bad.” ― Idowu Koyenikan The Universe's power can seldom deny the demands(positive or negative) of a believing spirit. The truth is, the Universe has been responding to your thoughts your entire life. “An educated man is not, necessarily, one who has an abundance of general or specialized knowledge. An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others.” ― Napolean Hill, Think and Grow Rich

Love in the Balance

A man of quality is never threatened by a woman of equality. ― Jill Briscoe Do you like chess? I like chess, although I have never played chess. I like it for this reason― sort of a reminder: when the game is over, the King and the pawn go back in the same box. “The Pledge of Allegiance says 'liberty and justice for all'. Which part of 'all' don't you understand?” ― Pat Schroeder

The Having Continuum

  Life has a way of balancing( compensating for ) things. For example, those who have things in abundance will tend to worry endlessly about petty things like what to wear, how big a house to buy or what kind of car to drive.
