I've often thought that what is the supreme law of the land? What does God's law say, and what is it that your personal understanding of God would interpret as “the” supreme law? I had a good friend and long time practitioner of several different religions, who would answer my questions about what is the supreme law of the land with this comment; “I guess you would call it God's law, whatever you want to call it.” Indeed, he did not use the word “supreme” or “divine” but I get the idea. And I asked him why he believed in this law and his answer was basically that all life is sacred and that there is a sort of energy or life force that is at work within all living things.
Now then, I asked him if what is the supreme law of the land was a Christian concept and he said; “I don't know, but it sounds kind of Biblical anyways.” Another Christian who wears religion on their sleeve would say; “I don't really see it as such, although I do believe in a universal spirituality.” Still another might say; “I have always felt that a higher power or force directs all things, including our thoughts and actions.” Still yet another might say; “I suppose I'll have to see it to believe it.” Okay, so let's talk shall we?
Well there are many definitions for what is the supreme law of the land, but for some reason (and I can't pinpoint exactly what it is), it just doesn't ring a bell. So then, I would like to ask everyone; when it comes to what is the supreme law of the land, what do you have to say? What would be your definition? If you were to go into a metaphysical bookstore or a library right now, what could you find? What would be the first definition you would find? Would it be “The Supreme Law of the Land” or “God=Substance”?
What if I told you there was another definition available to you? What if I told you it wasn't even a philosophy or a religious concept but rather it was a philosophical fact based upon observation and experience. What if I told you that your interpretation of what is the supreme law of the land may be incorrect? What if I told you that this particular philosophy could be tested by taking an experience and applying the laws to that experience? What if I told you that this particular philosophy could be tested and proven?
You might be shocked to find out that your particular theory about what is the supreme law of the land could be proven wrong. How would you feel if I told you that your theory about what is the supreme law of the land could be proved false? You'd be even more shocked to find out that it could be proven correct. But why won't someone tell me what is the supreme law of the land?
Why won't someone tell me the truth? It is much too simple to point to religion and say, “that's my theory.” It is much more complex to explain to someone who doesn't believe in religion. If someone wants to know what is the supreme . . . . . . law of the land; tell them without taking into consideration their religious beliefs. This is the only way to accurately teach them what is the supreme law of the land.
