This week’s post is the seventh of a monthly series of open-discussion posts focusing on books I’ve written. Our theme for the present is Mystery Teachings from the Living Earth, and this week we’re discussing “The Sixth Law: The Law of the Planes” (pp. 63-72). I’d like to ask readers to keep their questions and comments focused on that chapter and the ideas it contains; there’ll be other opportunities for general questions in due time.
Here’s the Sixth Law, as it appears in the book:
Everything in existence exists and functions on one of several planes of being or is composed of things from more than one plane acting together as a whole system. These planes are discrete, not continuous, and the passage of influences from one plane to another can take place only under conditions defined by the relationship of the planes involved.
The rest of this section of the book expands on the concept this definition sketches out. This is another challenging idea for a great many people these days, partly because the idea of multiple planes of being is foreign to our modern habits of thought, but partly also because one relationship between planes—the relationship between mind and matter—has been made far harder to understand than it should be by the pervasive influence of the superstitious modern belief in materialism. Questions? Comments? Discussions? Have at it—subject, of course, to the usual rules.
