Mystic Law itself refers to all Life-Phenomena in the universe.The fundamental law of life that governs all the workings in the whole universe. It is a FORCE and wisdom inherent in the entire cosmos, which itself the source of all physical and spirtual phenomena.
Nicheren wrote: " Life at each moment ecompasses both body and spirit and both self and environment of all sentient beings in every condition of life as well as non-sentient beings- plants ,sky, and earth, on down to the most minute particles of dust. Life at each moment permeates the universe and is revealed in all Phenomena ". The meaning is that the entire cosmos is enompasses in the mind that subsumes very life-moment , and every life-moment expands throughout the cosmos and become the principle of all elements.It is identical with MYSTIC LAW , which is cosmic life and the force behind the cosmic movements as they appear in the space and time continuum.
All the elements of the universe are contained in eternal cosmic, which is MYSTIC LAW. When the MYSTIC LAW takes concrete action or form, it becomes the Life-time and Life-space of individual lives. Each self in the universe is a part of cosmic life, and it draws the strenght of cosmic life to carry out its function in the physical world.In its depths of the self of each life is identical with the life of the cosmos. Hence the Buddhist phrase, "The cosmos is the self".
All individual selves are fused together in the cosmic self, and the fundamental entity endowing with the energy to become manifest in the ordinary world as individual selves is eternity, which is the MYSTIC LAW. Everything is included in this; everthing proceeds from it; everything returns from it.
The "self" of universal life spreads out infinitely throughout time and space. This is the Workings of the MYSTIC LAW which is the fundamental essence of the universe at this instant or any instant. It is an outspouring of the infinite energy of the Mystic Law . The existence of this present instant is the existence of the form of the cosmos at this present INSTANT, and since this instant contains all of the cosmos, it contains eternity. The self(this may what u call soul) of the cosmic life, which underlies the cosmos as it exist at this moment, is fused with the selves with in all our lives. This what i mean before :
Buddhist concept of "Ku" or the state of non-substantiality which describes as either existence or non-exisrtence, which is one aspect of "the character and essence" of all things. Ku help us understand how the universe could remain "Lifeless' for some billion years after its formation, yet still be called Alive: it's life-force was in the condition of Ku, not manifest, but profoundly shaping the design of the space and time universe as it evolved, down to the very Laws that govern it. As soon as condition allowed it to- and it's a sure thing that conditions would- Life emerged from a Latent state to manifest state, and proceeded to evolve into sentient, intelligent beings who could appreciate their roots in universal life and worship it's ESSENCE(This means fusing our lives to the universal life co'z we both have the funadmental core of life-force which is the the same with the life of the universe. The universe is the manifestation of MYSTIC LAW and as well as all other beings including us,HUMANS, ARE ALL MANIFESTATIONS of MYSTIC LAW. WE ARE OURSELVES THE MYSTIC LAW ITSELF). And that ESSSENCE- that subsumes all other laws, that has been driving and shaping reality since time without beginning and will never cease to do so- is " MYSTIC LAW ", the Life essence of the cosmos which is the ultimate principle or the totality of universal existence, immanent or perfectly inherent in all beings in the whole comos.(This may be related to what i had post below on the " Law of Conservation"
When we do not draw on the infinite energy of the cosmos, we run into difficulty, since we are ignoring our identity with the cosmic self. Eternity is implicit in our lives, but we do not make provision for even the coming year. Potentially, our life-space is infinite, but things are now, it does not even extend throuhout our tiny planet. What we must do is find the way to expand, to live an eternity in a single moment, to increase our life-space and life -time until they fill the universe. We must realize our ONENESS with the MYSTIC LAW.
