Laws of nature function within certain ranges, depending on their nature. For example, classical physics functions on larger scales, whereas quantum mechanics functions on atomic scales.
These laws of nature can be experienced as principles functioning in the world around us or as beings (devas) that embody those principles. The first makes studying them easier, the second allows communication and negotiation. The first is perception through the intellect, the second through the heart. These can be called masculine and feminine modes.
Devas are the actual doers of nature. They express from the process of experience in consciousness, creating the world. They embody specific principles and function more vertically through the layers (koshas) of creation.
Everything that happens is being done and managed by these beings. We’re not the doers, we’re the experiencers.
Qualities of Divinity are embodied by consciousness itself and the Skaktis that power the process. Those lead to more expressed values further along in the process.
More universal devas embody fundamental laws of nature like creation, maintenance, and destruction.
Laws of nature expressing as types of prana or life force function primarily from the celestial to the emotional body. The pranas are derived from the Shaktis.
Other laws of nature function only on specific levels, like the devata whose relationships structure the subtle geometry of form.
And some are very specific, like the laws who take care of oak trees, the wind, robins, or roses.
Laws of nature that function in the upper layers of creation are aware of their nature as expressions of the Divine. They know their part in the whole.
More surface laws of nature are less aware of their source and often develop an attitude about humans because we so often ignore them and trample their work. From their perspective, we lack grace and gratitude.
The world around us is incredibly complex, but it’s not random. It’s all intentional. The world is created and destroyed in each moment, but much of that process takes place at subtle levels.
More obvious is the maintenance process that ensures the appearance continues for us to live and evolve in. It’s in a constant state of re-balancing to adjust to change and clear what’s not moving. Some of what we experience is that adjusting and purification.
Many struggle with what is arising and resist nature.
When we settle into our deeper nature and let go of trying to control and resist, we step into harmony with nature. We gain nature’s support. Life goes more smoothly. Desires are more appropriate and more easily fulfilled.
As our physiology refines, we begin producing soma. This is the “nectar of the gods.” It upgrades the abilities of the devas we work with and attracts others to help.
Also, this support develops a kavach or shield, essentially protection from negative influences. This further enhances our day-to-day quality of life.
Of course, there is always karma in play, arising to rebalance and resolve our past. But life gets progressively smoother and more enjoyable the further we go.
