What Does It Mean to Be Under No Laws But God’s?
I posted over on RSD Nation how I gave up all the “rules” of dating quite some time ago. Now I follow my intuition purely, all the time. I thought of this passage again tonight from ACIM and wanted to share it, in the hopes it will inspire others to liberate themselves from all the silly “rules” of decorum and politeness to which we have bound ourselves. There is NOTHING more attractive in all the world than the aliveness that comes from being 100 percent authentic.
I didn’t realize how true this was until I used a lot of Emotional Freedom Technique. Suddenly rules that seemed to apply to me were being lifted away as if they never existed. That’s when I realized: none of it is real. We made it all up. It’s just like the movie The Matrix. And that means we can change it with our minds. We can change everything. Because we, collectively, are God. :-)
What does this mean practically speaking for aspiring PUAs? Well, if you’re like my friend on RSD Nation, it means you can tell a girl that you’d like to have a foursome with a woman, her daughter, and her mother — and the woman in question will become even more attracted to you. Why? Not because she actually wants to do it, I mean, it’s kind of gross. She gets more attracted because by being willing to say outrageous things like that, you are liberating her from the shackles of the status quo. Fuck the status quo. We are so tired of being nice, dead people. We are so tired of people censoring themselves and deadening their imaginations. We want to be alive! We want to be free!
Lesson 76 from A Course in Miracles: I am under no laws but God’s.
We have observed before how many senseless things have seemed to you to be salvation. Each has imprisoned you with laws as senseless as itself. You are not bound by them. Yet to understand that this is so, you must first realize salvation lies not there. While you would seek for it in things that have no meaning, you bind yourself to laws that make no sense. Thus do you seek to prove salvation is where it is not….
Think of the freedom in the recognition that you are not bound by all the strange and twisted laws you have set up to save you. You really think that you would starve unless you have stacks of green paper strips and piles of metal discs. You really think a small round pellet or some fluid pushed into your veins through a sharpened needle will ward off disease and death. You really think you are alone unless another body is with you.
It is insanity that thinks these things. You call them laws, and put them under different names in a long catalogue of rituals that have no use and serve no purpose. You think you must obey the “laws” of medicine, of economics and of health. Protect the body, and you will be saved.
These are not laws, but madness. The body is endangered by the mind that hurts itself. The body suffers just in order that the mind will fail to see it is the victim of itself. The body’s suffering is a mask the mind holds up to hide what really suffers. It would not understand it is its own enemy; that it attacks itself and wants to die. It is from this your “laws” would save the body. It is for this you think you are a body.
There are no laws except the laws of God. This needs repeating, over and over, until you realize it applies to everything that you have made in opposition to God’s Will. Your magic has no meaning. What it is meant to save does not exist. Only what it is meant to hide will save you…. Magic imprisons, but the laws of God make free. The light has come because there are no laws but His.
We will begin the longer practice periods today with a short review of the different kinds of “laws” we have believed we must obey. These would include, for example, the “laws” of nutrition, of immunization, of medication, and of the body’s protection in innumerable ways. Think further; you believe in the “laws” of friendship, of “good” relationships and reciprocity. Perhaps you even think that there are laws which set forth what is God’s and what is yours. Many “religions” have been based on this. They would not save but damn in Heaven’s name. Yet they are no more strange than other “laws” you hold must be obeyed to make you safe.
There are no laws but God’s. Dismiss all foolish magical beliefs today, and hold your mind in silent readiness to hear the Voice that speaks the truth to you. You will be listening to One Who says there is no loss under the laws of God. Payment is neither given nor received. Exchange cannot be made; there are no substitutes; and nothing is replaced by something else. God’s laws forever give and never take….
I am under no laws but God’s.
