The Tenth Commandment

Moses, through God's guidance, gave to the world the Ten Commandments, the last of which reads, "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's." As the correct knowledge of God and man is gained, we begin to understand that man is the reflection of God. Because he reflects God's allness, man reflects completeness. He has and does only that which is good. When the light of Truth breaks through the beliefs held by mortal mind, it will not be a case of "Thou shalt not," but, Thou canst not.

Every day we hear of individuals, groups, and nations desiring those things which belong to others. At times the arguments presented are so subtle that even careful thinkers may lose sight of the real motive back of such desire. The individual may endeavor to influence others erroneously in order to gain his ends. Might may then displace right and force take the place of reason. It is only as we gain a knowledge of the true value of all things that we are able to see these incidents for what they really are.
