The 10 Commitments (that lead to freedom)

The 10 Commitments (that lead to freedom)

I recognize and honor the indwelling spirit of the divine presence within myself and all creation.
You shall have no other gods before me.

I will remain vigilant over anything that subverts my free will, be it mental or physical, and continually seek wholeness.
You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
I will take excellent care of myself as befitting the divine presence that lives within me.
You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
I will keep my promises. I will honor the 7th day as an agreement that I made with the Universe as a whole to go into the stillpoint of God and reaffirm the spirit of creation.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
I will balance and harmonize the divine masculine and feminine principles in all aspects of my life.
Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
I will cherish, guard and protect my life and all life.
You shall not murder.
I will be faithful and trustworthy in all my relations.
You shall not commit adultery.

I will embrace prosperity consciousness so that I may give generously.
You shall not steal.
I will tell the truth to myself and others and enable others to do the same.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
I will be joyful and grateful for the success of others, for when I intend good things for others, two or more are gathered and I bring  the vibration of abundance to us all.
You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.
