Ther First Commandment


William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council has talked often about the value of the Ten Commandments as a source of positive guidance in our lives. The following gives their thoughts on the first commandment.

The Council:  All of Creation is based on those Ten Commandments or ten principles of the Divine.  They have been reduced so that they can be applied by individuals to individual situations, but all that is necessary to begin to comprehend the magnitude is to allow those principles to expand a little bit more with each time that you meditate on them.  And if you are a proficient meditator, it will not take too long for you to begin to realize the immensity of those ten simple statements, the magnitude that lies within their meaning.  Take, for instance, what is the first Commandment?

(pause)  Well, please do not overpower us with your knowledge. Questioner:  "I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have strange gods before me."

The Council:  What does that say?

Questioner:  There is only one God.

The Council:  That is about what it says in the other forms.  Someone repeat the first Commandment, so that all can hear.

Questioner:  "I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have strange gods before me."

The Council:  Very well.  What is the first segment of the Commandment? Repeat it, please. 

Questioner:  "I am the Lord thy God."

The Council:  Very well.  Now, think, all of you, think.  "I am the Lord thy God."  Is that stating that an outside source is making that statement?  Or is it stating that an inside source is making that statement?  It is stating both.  Once you recognize that there is an outside source of Creation, and once you accept that as a truth, then you will begin to realize that there is also an inside source. So the first principle, Divine principle, is that you must recognize that outer Divine Source, but you must also, to complete that, recognize that inner divine source.  Now, would you please continue with the rest.

Questioner:  "Thou shall not have strange gods before me."

The Council:  Ah.  "Thou shalt not have strange gods before me."  The outer source is saying to the inner source, "Do not have those things before you, those gods before you, that are not the same as you." If you do not worship an outside source that is alien to THE Creative Source, then there will be no alien source or alien god in you.  Does that make sense?  In actuality, what it is saying is that this Divine Source, this Divine Creator, is instructing you in the awareness that you are also divine, but in order to maintain that divinity you must not worship any other god.  Because once you worship another god, then you are no longer a reflection of that Creative God, because that Creative God IS the source of all that is, and once you turn your back on that, then you become less.  We could go on and on and on to explain it, but that is just a small, little hint of what it is saying beyond the words.  Thank you for your assistance.

The Living Essence of all of Creation

God is the living essence of all that is created spiritual and material, and as this essence you simply feed off of it, you are suspended in this ocean of love, in this universe of love, you are similar to a beautiful goldfish in a bowl, but a bowl that is so tremendous that it encompasses all that is ever and ever will be created, and each of you are capable of having your own universe to work in.  You cannot live or exist in any place without touching the life-giving love of the Infinite Father.

 As a beautiful piece of needlepoint or tapestry is developed, it is first constructed from a backing, the stitches are placed very precisely in certain places in this backing, and as time progresses then a beautiful picture is formed and the backing is completely covered.  You are the beautiful stitches; the backing that holds those stitches together is the Divine: that is the basis of the tapestry, the stitches are of no value without the backing, but the backing has a value for anyone else who wishes to apply their stitches to it.  The foundation is always the necessity.
