The third law of Newton says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. And this is immediate and instant. This means that for every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size but opposite in direction. And all this is again objective and material.
Let us look into this law spiritually. When you do good, you may feel good. And when you do bad, you may feel bad. And this too can be immediate and instant. But this is individual and subjective. And this is spiritual. I can not force my good and my bad on the other. You may feel bad when you abuse your son or daughter for no reason at all. You may later on feel guilty for this behavior. You may repent for this action. You may rethink on all this. And this experience can have a transforming effect. This is subjective and individual. And all this depends on an individual’s empathy neurons.
One of the best presidents of America, Abraham Lincoln, says, “When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion”. This may be a religion to him. But the same may not be true for others. This is individual and subjective. We can not force this on the humanity. This has to be spiritual.
We can only force on the humanity the laws of the land. And a law is not love. When there is no love, the law is needed. And when there is love, there is no need of any law. And love is a higher law. Love is a supreme law. The love of the divine is supreme. Buddha called this Dhamma. And this is spiritual.
The above law is like the law of Karma. Karma means doing. Doing means an action. Even non-action means doing and is an action. And every action has a consequence. And every individual is responsible for the consequences of his action. The consequences can be either immediate or some time later. Nobody knows when. And nobody can predict. It is uncertain. And the consequences can be either good or bad. And good and bad are relative things. What is good to me need not be good to you. And what is bad to me need not be bad to you. This is again individual and subjective.
Let us again look into the second law of Newton spiritually. Let us presume that every individual who is a unit of mass becomes spiritual like that of Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Mahavira, Osho, etc. Now just imagine the spiritual force and spiritual power on the earth!! Can you just imagine what will happen if this spiritual power becomes a social power?
Can we reckon this spiritual power as a social power? The whole planet earth would be a heaven then. Otherwise, the third world war is not very far. The survival of the toughest and fittest is an old adage. The survival of the wisest has to be a new adage. We have to move from the Dark Age to an Enlightened Age. And all this can be only by our choice. And all this can only be by design and not by default.
