How the Law of Compensation works.
(Using gossip and other examples to illustrate how this works.)

My dear friend, it’s so good to see you again, up and eager to receive some more information. I would like to pick up where we left off the previous time.
As I said: duality is a simple concept which isn’t really understood by many and that it will exist as long as one hasn’t reached the spheres of the soul. Knowing this gives us an advantage. For example: when someone decides to do something unloving it will have two (= dual) consequences: 1) the energy sent out will not contain the energy of love because the individual decided to block his soul from contributing its energy 2) the soul itself will not be able to fill itself with the natural love it needs to feel “normal” because a (partial) blockage has been created. So you see, when one decides to do something unloving towards someone else it also has an immediate impact on oneself (because a blockage works both ways). This way people will see the expression - to treat another as oneself - gets a deeper and more explanatory meaning.
Evidently you will also start to understand why we have repeated several times: to give and be loving even if you feel like you are wandering through the lowest of Hells. Because when you give love it will also have two (= dual) consequences: 1) it will (partially) unblock the flow of natural love towards your soul; and at the same time 2) allow the soul to contribute its love to the action, thought or creation.
But because many do not know or understand this duality they often do the total opposite. Since they feel bad they only worsen their situation by acting more unloving (instead of more loving) and they block their souls more and more until they are in total darkness.
Thus one of the things one needs to do to get out of hell or to feel better when one feels bad is to do loving things. “Saying sorry” is for example one of the loving things that will help unblock the flow of love. Because doing loving things will let natural love flow through our souls by eliminating the blockages we created through the decision of our free wills. But because it is so hard to do, most people will not engage in walking this path. They’d rather live with a soul lacking the love it needs than giving others the love they need because they feel/think the others don’t deserve to receive that love.
However knowing what you now know, you can see the repercussions of this. By not giving others the love they need, you are not giving yourself the love you need: the reason being the principle of duality; you are blocking the flow of love from but also - at the same time - to your own soul.
This here my friend is the mechanism behind the Law of Compensation: when you do an unloving thing, you block your soul from contributing its love and in the meanwhile you block the love from entering your soul. And the size of the blockage will depend upon the severity of your actions and thoughts which in turn will also influence the time you will pay for the compensation.
For instance: taking a human being’s life is such a severe action it will almost block/encapsulate your whole soul. Of course circumstances will influence the quantity (of blockage). As for instance; when it was done out of self-defense it will not block/encapsulate the soul as much as when it is done in cold blood, but it will not be much less either. So you can readily see how difficult it will be and how long the process will take before the blockage will fade away (by letting love flow through your soul) especially because you cannot bring back to life the one you’ve killed. That is the reason why we can still unblock our souls even if we cannot make right what we did wrong but it is also the reason why it will be much harder.
Although we will unblock our souls much faster by undoing the unloving thing itself, to the people we did it to, we still have a chance of unblocking our souls by doing loving things to people we did not do the unloving things to. This might not seem fair to the people who have suffered by the wrongdoing of others but it shows the fact Father loves us unconditionally and does not want us to suffer infinitely, although people would.
If you let love flow through your soul, it will have a positive effect upon the blockages you’ve created. And if you persevere, you will succeed in bringing your soul back into the harmony it needs. But then again there is also the Divine Love which is far more powerful than the natural love. If I would have to put a number on how much stronger, just so you can understand what I’m trying to say, I would say 10 or maybe even 100 times. Of course this is purely hypothetical because natural love is only a derivative of Divine Love so it is almost impossible to compare them this way. Anyhow you are already starting to see where this is leading to. If you ask for the Divine Love to enter your soul it will be 10 or 100 times more efficient, 10 or 100 times stronger than if you would let the natural love flow through your soul. So it will help to break down “the wall” you’ve created around your soul 10 or 100 times faster than the natural love would do.
And all of this will only depend on how you use your free will; the creator of “separation from” but also the creator of “unity with” God. Thus having two (= dual) functions in one concept. If you truly start to understand this concept of duality you will see how easy it will be to use its information to your own advantage: duality = 2 choices = to do (something) or not to do.
Thus to help you to become more at one with Father, it isn’t that hard to find out yourself which way you should use this duality. Being soul or being love or being one means only acting out of love. So what do you think we need to do to become one (besides asking for the Divine Love)?
[To act within the scope of love.]
Exactly. And what shouldn’t we be doing if we would like to become one?
[To act outside the scope of love.]
And although this seems so simple it is very hard to do for most people because they do not understand the true implications of this duality. But let me explain it further.
As a human being we mix up these choices and that is where the disharmony begins. Most of us only think that what we do is important; whether we do something loving or whether we do something unloving. But there is nothing more untrue. What we don’t do is just as important! If we encounter a situation where we feel we should do something loving but we restrain from doing it, it will have the same impact on our souls as if we do something unloving. If you look at this statement closely you will see the logic and the truth of it.
Just as your mind blocks your soul from adding love to an unloving action, so does your mind block your soul from adding your love to a specific situation. And as I explained in the beginning: a blockage works both ways. So if you block yourself from adding love to a specific situation, you also block yourself to receive love at the same time. Thus you see how important it is to understand the concept of duality (created by free will) and how it can be used to our advantage once we see it’s true nature: being love = being one = to act inside the scope of love = not to act outside the scope of love - and - not being love = not being one = act outside the scope of love = not act inside the scope of love. Evidently it is not only about what we do, it is also about what we don’t do; and both have an equal impact on our soul conditions!
Let me ask you a couple of questions to clarify this further. There are some teenagers assaulting a defenseless man 50 meters in front of you. You see them but you turn back or go around them without interfering or calling the police out of fear of getting assaulted yourself. Do you think, although you haven’t done anything yourself, it was a loving or an unloving inaction and do you think it will have an impact on your soul?
[Well, according to what you have been trying to explain, I would say it was an unloving lack of action with a free will decision not to add your own love to the situation. When you block your soul of adding love, you also block it from receiving love. So, yes, it would have had a “negative” impact on the soul.]
Indeed. Although one does not do a thing here (no specific action) there will be a reaction: a (partial) blockage of the soul. So you see that “not doing something” is also an action that will generate a reaction and this is something a lot of people do not understand. Blocking your soul from contributing its love is the true action that lies underneath the physical inaction. And it is this action that creates the reaction.
Next question. Your friends are gossiping about an acquaintance of yours. They want you to participate and say negative things about her behind her back. Although you do not completely like this acquaintance, you refrain from contributing because you don’t have the exact details and understand there are two sides to every story. What do you think this time?
[That it was a loving inaction with a free will decision not to add unloving energy to the situation. So no blockage was created and it had a “positive’ impact on the soul.]
Exactly. But it will not only have a positive impact because no blockage was created. It will also have a positive impact because love was able to flow through you while in that situation. And although nothing physical was done, not blocking your soul or letting natural love flow is the underlying action which will have a reaction namely; breaking down (a tiny bit of) “the wall” you’ve build around your soul. So you are actually doing loving things by not doing unloving things and are being compensated for it.
Although I would like to continue and have a lot more to say I can see you are starting to get tired so I’m going to stop here.
Thank you for giving us these opportunities and God bless. Your brother and friend forever, John.
