Absolute Principle

Principle is the absolute, universal, unchangeable, undeviating immutable foundation upon which all universes are based and established. The Emanations of Light are ultimate principles, the absolute principles of being.

As the framework of the universe, absolute principle contains all that is at the Source, and it governs, regulates and controls the universe through its being and action. An Emanation is a direct outpouring of the abolute principles of Wisdom, Love and the Logos, as One, from the Godhead.

Absolute principles are ultimate truths, unalterable and permanent facts, the universal realities of the Godhead. Many principles are absolute: Omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence, for example.

Wisdom manifests as omniscient Mind, law, thinking, planning, knowing and intelligence. Love manifests as omnipresent Substance, faith and every nourishing and sustaining expression. The Logos manifests as omnipotent energy, selflessness, joy, equilibrium and every unifying expression.

While we describe absolute principle as being pure, whole, perfect and complete, in the moment that principle deviates from that absolute perfection, it becomes relative, and thus imperfect, impure, partial and incomplete.

Every absolute principle becomes many abstract and relative laws of being and laws of doing. Being is all that God is as potential Wisdom, Love and Energy. In dealing with "being" as it applies to spiritual laws, we are concerned with states of consciousness, which are states of being. Doing implies action and is kinetic thinking, sustaining and activity, derived from being.

Quote

If God held all truth shut in his right hand, and in his left nothing but the ever-restless search after truth, although with the condition of for ever and ever erring, and should say to me, "Choose!" I should bow humbly to his left hand and say, "Father, give! pure truth is for Thee alone!" – Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
