“If one man craves freedom—liberty—he must remember that all other men long for the same freedom. Groups of such liberty-loving mortals cannot live together in peace without becoming subservient to such laws, rules, and regulations as will grant each person the same degree of freedom while at the same time safeguarding an equal degree of freedom for all his fellow mortals.” [UB 134:6:1]
Thought Adjuster: “Emotionally speaking, human creatures are very impulsive due to the electrochemical nature of their highly-complex organism. In the animal kingdom, instincts are the equivalent of impulses. From day one of their life, animal species ‘naturally’ operate according to their specific innate programming. They are, indeed, ‘ruled’ by their species-specific urges.
The word ‘ruled’ is the keyword. Rules are explicit or intrinsic regulations or principles governing conduct within a particular activity or sphere—or species. The observation of animal behaviors has established that animals have their own rules of conduct within their distinct groupings, which ensure their sustainability.
For instance, wolves’ packs abide by a specific pecking order wherein the alpha male is the boss. He eats first, has his pick of mates, leads the pack during hunts, and deals with threats to survival. The alpha female’s status is defined by her association with the alpha male. Some packs, particularly large ones, have a second-in-command —the beta wolf.
The laws of nature and the more mysterious framework that maintain the check and balance of the entire cosmic organism have been set in place by the Creator Himself for the logical purpose of preventing His Works from self-destroying due to a state of unbridled anarchy leading to chaos. Evoution--not revolution--is His Rule of Thumb. The Divine Objective is one total harmonization, auspicious to the peaceful cohabitation of His various orders of lovingly-conceived creatures.
On your planet, the out-of-control tantrums of low-grade emotions cannot but generate a state of life-threatening anarchy that disrespectfully tramples all over many individual liberties in total disregard of their God-given ‘rights.’ Beware of their dangerous domino effect! “If one man is to be absolutely free, then another must become an absolute slave.” [UB 134:6:1]
Rain forests are greedily pillaged, thus amputating the planetary lungs. Entire species are threatened of mass extinction by arrogant and selfish trophy hunters. No other animal hunts for trophies—only for subsistence. And the list of offenses goes on and on.
The Father Himself is often referred to as ‘the Ruler.’ All the rules and principles by which He and His Universes operate are ‘user-friendly’—altruistic. He governs with a heart of gold—not an iron fist.”
