The Three Covenants: Moral Shields to Save our World

In the spiritual tradition of the West there are covenantal-sacred-contracts -  or agreements - created between God/Divine Consciousness and us. These agreements actually constitute a road to spiritual freedom.  Together, these agreements are laws of life and life giving laws.

The 10 Commandments: More Than a Playbook

By: Dr. Jerry Epstein

The 10 cosmic laws (aka the 10 commandments) show us the path to personal freedom.  The “don’t murder, don’t steal, and don’t covet” (i.e. don’t claim and possess what is not yours) are easy to understand.  By acting considerately towards others we create a peaceful world that perpetuates life.  Less easy for us to understand, particularly in a secular society, is the purpose of the first three laws dealing with our relationship to the Divine. 

The Practice of Peacefulness: Act According to the 10 Laws

Understanding the 10 Cosmic Laws: Bringing Order into Our Lives (Laws 6- 10)

The overarching theme of existence, exemplified now in particular, and human history in general, is murder.  Murder is the active taking of life with intent to gain power and control over others.  It provides an outlet for the human game of domination-subjugation/master-slave that are subsumed under the dark current of the Will to Power. In the Western spiritual tradition, we contract with God to perpetuate life for ourselves and for each other. We are never meant to actively pursue the extinction of our own life or of any else’s.
