Some religious followers believe that if one does not follow the constraints and rules of a religion, they must be atheists, heathens or pagans. All words used in a manner to degrade a person for not conforming. If one does minute research you will find that the cost for not conforming to any one major religion would be your life. Now that religious murders have reduced drastically and now that we have reached the age of information, one would think that a person would steer their beliefs into something more measurable. However, the psychological hold that religion has on an individual does not allow this, but if it was at all possible, one would find that simply following the laws of nature would be a more spiritual form of positive energy.
The following information regarding the Laws of Nature are derived from C.F. Volney’s book The Ruins of Empires, published in 1890.
Followers of the Laws of Nature are not atheist. Laws of nature defined in one single precept, self preservation. The law of nature is the constant and regular order of events, by which God governs the universe; an order which his wisdom presents to the senses and reason of men, as an equal and common rule for their actions, to guide them, without distinction of country or sect, towards perfection and happiness.
The Ten characters of the Laws of Nature Are:
1. Primitive – to be inherent to the existence of things and consequently primitive and anterior to every other law, so that all that which man has received are only imitations of it.
2. Immediate – to be derived immediately from God. All other laws are presented by men, who may be either deceived or deceivers.
3. Universal – to be common to all times and all countries. To be one and universal.
4. Invariable – Uniformed and invariable (never changing)
5. Evident – To be evident and palpable, because it consists entirely of facts incessantly present to the sense.
6. Reasonable – because it precepts and entire doctrine are conformable to reason, and to the human understanding.
7. Just – (morally right and fair) because in that law, the penalties are proportionate to the infractions.
8. Pacific – (peaceful) because in the law of nature, all men being brothers and equal in rights, it recommends to them only peace and toleration, even for errors.
9. Beneficent – (generous) in teaching them the true means of becoming better and happier.
10. Alone sufficient – because it comprises all that is good and useful in other laws, either civil or religious. It constitutes essentially the moral part of them.
There is no rule of worship or systematic occurrences that one must succumb to in order to practice/respect the laws of nature. You must only be attentive and aware of the laws and use your existence to practice them. If we all learn to respect ourselves, each other and nature, the universe will respect us back.
