A king must harness the invisible powers of nature if he is to advance his kingdom.
Every boy starts out curious about how the world works. He wants to tinker with things, learn the names of things, build things.
Some men retain this curiosity into adulthood and enjoy activities like working on cars, assembling guns, woodwork, etc.
These activities can, perhaps, lead to a source of income for the man (which he can use to fill his warchest), or they may simply be therapeutic… giving him time and space to get perspective on life as he works with his hands.
But ultimately, if the man is to rule, he must advance to master the invisible forces of life.
For it is the invisible forces that give a king his power and, to the undiscerning masses, are indistinguishable from magic or destiny.
And so every aspiring king must become a wizard before he can claim his throne.
It is the wizard who can dispel the forces of darkness and stand up to tyrants.
It is the wizard who can heal the broken and bring hope to the hopeless.
There are many ways to classify the invisible forces of nature. But perhaps the most succinct summary is what’s known as “The 12 Universal Laws.” A wizard should understand and know how to utilize these laws to his advantage:
1. The Law of Connection – everything is connected to everything else. Words, actions, prayers, beliefs and perhaps even thoughts have a ripple effect that affects those around you
2. The Law of Energy – everything and everyone in the universe moves according to different energy patterns. Understanding the “vibe” of a person or place is critical to understanding and influencing the situation to your advantage.
3. The Law of Action – Nothing can be manifested without action. Your actions must align with your inner thoughts and dreams. Otherwise, your inner thoughts will change to align with your actions.
4. The Law of Correspondence – the patterns of heaven reveal themselves in earthly form. We catch glimpses of heaven on earth. And we intuitively sense when the earthly forms are out of alignment with the heavenly forms. We instinctively desire “on earth, as it is in heaven.”
5. The Law of Cause and Effect – Every action has a reaction or consequence. You “reap what you sow.” Or, in more blunt terms, “everything is your fault” …for better or worse.
6. The Law of Compensation – We are rewarded in accordance with our contributions. Wealth, friendships, and blessings are a direct result of value that we’ve delivered to others. Therefore, if you want greater blessings, make more and/or greater contributions.
7. The Law of Attraction – like attracts like. Negative energy attracts more negative energy. Positive energy attracts more positive energy. Positive thoughts attract a positive life. Negative thoughts attract a negative life. Positive people create a positive culture. Negative people create a negative culture. You become what you think about and who you surround yourself with.
8. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy – All people possess the power to change the conditions of their lives. You can drive out negative energy by creating positive energy.
9. The Law of Relativity – each person receives a series of problems in their life. These problems are uniquely suited to them and designed to strengthen their spirit. You can also recognize that, no matter how bad your problem seems to be, there is always someone else in a worse position. Everything is relative.
10. The Law of Polarity – everything exists on a continuum and has an opposite end of the pole. If you have undesirable thoughts that are pulling you towards one end of the spectrum, you can suppress and transform those thoughts by concentrating on the opposite end of the pole. “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right… think about such things.”
11. The Law of Rhythm – everything has a cycle and a rhythm. The earth has seasons. Women have hormonal cycles. Even history moves in cycles. These rhythms reflect the regularity of God’s universe. A master wizard knows how to recognize which part of the cycle he’s in. He does not despair in the down times because he understands the cycle and its purpose. And he knows how to align himself with the cycle to get the best results.
12. The Law of Gender – all energy is masculine or feminine, the penetrating and the yielding. Masculine energy initiates, feminine energy responds. Feminine women are the response to masculine men. Masculine energy is directed through direct commands. Feminine energy is directed through imagination and subconscious. There are many implications to this law.
These laws may seem simple on the surface, but each of them has profound nuances for every interaction you have with others.
A wizard must reflect upon these laws and apply them to achieve his goals.
