What Is the “Rule of Law?” by John Cali and Spirit

Every law is an infraction of liberty. ~ Jeremy Bentham (1748 — 1832)

The 10 Commandments

We’re living in a time when we hear much — perhaps too much — about the “rule of law.” And how it is seemingly so often violated all over our planet.


Much of your modern society bases itself on what it calls the rule of law. Just what is this rule of law?

Although your many and varied jurisdictions have their own laws and interpretations of those laws, they are all based upon a most “unspiritual” perspective. They are based on fear and distrust.

Fear and distrust of your fellow humans and, perhaps more telling, fear and distrust of yourselves.

We realize many, if not most, humans would disagree with us on this. But if we could work our will on your society, there would be no laws. Everyone would be free to do as they please.

Of course, we cannot work our will in this way. Nor would we want to. However, many of you would call letting everyone do as they please an absolutely insane thing to do.

Laws are created because you humans feel the need to control others. That is where the fear and distrust come in. You do not believe in the inherent goodness and integrity you all possess.

So you seek ways to control or eliminate the “evil,” the lack of integrity you perceive as the root of human existence.

While we know this will likely not be achieved in your lifetimes, if you could eliminate all laws, the human race would once again feel free and unfettered. Everyone would do only what feels good to them. You would remember who you are and where you came from. You would remember the foundation of who each of you is.

That foundation is love. Pure love does not require laws to regulate human behavior. Only fear and distrust require laws.

Integrity has nothing to do with adhering to your legal systems. Integrity has everything to do with being true to yourselves. Then you will need no laws, nor any other legal restrictions. For then you will be acting from the highest integrity, from the law of love.

The “bottom line” here is love triumphs law. Love ensures  you will all be justly rewarded by the universal law of attraction, by the universe which recognizes no law excepts its own.

    It’s a really good post! I love “love trumps law”……….indeed
    Love trumps everything.

    When I was reading the post Crowley came to mind…..I have his auto biography but the book keeps disappearing. I only can find it when I’m not looking for it..strange but true.

    I don’t believe in evil, I do know there is a great deal of misconceptions and distrust of not only ourselves but of everyone else.

    If we all did what was in our hearts we would never hurt another. If we opened ourselves to the beauty that is within there would be no need to judge anyone including ourselves.

    Conshana I wouldn’t mind reading your essay’s also.

    John, thank you for posting this.

    love and hugs

      Thanks very much, Jeannie. Glad you liked it.

      I agree with you: If we all did what was in our hearts we would never hurt another.

      Love & hugs,

    John, Greetings and Salutations~! And my deepest appreciation to Spirit for guiding this post.
    I’ve been working for some time on an essay, that will damn and condemn me to the hidebound religionists, as they will not, in this lifetime, understand the basic premises behind the title: “The purpose of The Law is to grow and achieve beyond it”. And another essay, with the same premise, as regards “religion”.

    How so very timely and necessary in this day and age. But one thing must be always remembered: “The Greater the Freedom, the Greater the Responsibility therefor!”

    Paul said it very well: King James Bible, 1 Corinthians 10:23

    “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.”

    We have a lot maturing to do, to reach that standard. BUT~!! We CAN do it.

    Blessings, My Friend
    I AM Conshana

      Hi Conshana — I’m delighted you liked the post. We actually wrote it years ago, and I only recently “stumbled” on it, realizing it had never been published. I think it’s still timely today.

      I love the sounds of your essays! Would you mind sending them to me, privately, when you have them finished?

      I agree — we have a lot of maturing to do, but we’re getting there.

      Warm blessings to you, dear brother,
