Spiritual Law: Spiritual Law is also known as Karma and ‘the Tao’. Spirit Law is a series of observations of how things work in the Universe. The word spiritual stands for the life force that penetrates everything and is mental, spiritual, physical and emotional. The Chinese call it the law of the Tao; the way of things; a cosmic process within which everything is a continuous flow of contraction and expansion. This flow is called change. The Chinese observed that when situations develop to the extreme they naturally turn round and become the opposite (i.e. if you walk far enough north you will eventually be walking south). This is seen as an interplay between two opposites; however, a pair of opposites is also seen as a unity; the conscious and unconscious are a pair of opposites that are at one with each other. The movement of Tao, or the way, is not a force that is put on something but occurs naturally and spontaneously. Spiritual Laws are not written down and can only be seen to work by personal observation of situations; by looking at why things happen inside and outside yourself; and looking into physical life and beyond it to get a wider perspective of how and why things work according to their own natural patterns.
