Mother Teresa was asked, “Why do you do what you do?’ Mother Teresa’s response might surprise you. She stated, “It’s both by the love of my lord, Jesus, that in every person I meet I see his face and also my fear of the little Hitler that resides in the corners of my own heart.”
You might think that of all people, Mother Teresa, would not have a single negative or judgmental thought. However, this is one of the misconceptions of spirituality and the ego mind. This is the Law of Polarity at work. Everything is on a continuum and has an opposite. You can suppress and transform undesirable thoughts by concentrating on the opposite pole. It is the law of mental vibrations.
Everyone has a minor part that holds some prejudice. At the same time, there is a great love. This is the duality that gives rise to struggle and sometimes confusion. The great love within can lift you up and lead you to the spiritual solution that not only propels you to greater spiritual heights, but, also, smoothes the path in the linear world.
This great love within the duality is the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy in play. You have the power within you to change the conditions in your life. Higher vibrations consume and transform lower ones; thus, you can change the energies in your life by understanding the Universal Laws and applying the principles in such a way as to effect change.
In addition to the twelve Universal Laws there are twenty-one sub-laws. These sub-laws are your human characteristics. These characteristics are: Aspiration to A Higher Power, Charity, Compassion, Courage, Dedication, Faith, Forgiveness, Generosity, Grace, Honesty, Hope, Joy, Kindness, Leadership, Noninterference, Patience, Praise, Responsibility, Self-Love, Thankfulness, and Unconditional Love.
Mother Teresa referred to these twenty-one sub-laws in her statement. Mother Teresa understood one does not need to aspire to be perfect or without flaws. One needs to remember to accept oneself as a human and spiritual being in transformation. We are both simultaneously.
