Shadows of Unimagined Greatness
Even those who admit the existence of a lost continent in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, often claim that there could not have been any cultured inhabitants so very long ago. Yet the colonial empires of the Motherland strongly suggest that the peoples who built them could not have been greater than those who erected the Mukulian Empire on the Continent of Mu itself. Mukulia, or Lemuria, reached an unprecedented level of development, socially, culturally and spiritually. No nation, from the day of its submergence to the present, has ever eclipsed its magnificence. But what is most important, crucial to the development of its society, was the philosophy of its people and their voluntary adherence to the Laws of God enabling them to live in greater harmony with nature and each other.
People ask why there is so little of record, why so few clues remain. Within recorded history, the world has witnessed nothing even approximating the devastation caused when a continent-sized land mass subsides, as did Mu roughly 26,000 years ago, or the later equally violent destruction of Atlantis around 8,000 BC. When these calamities struck, those who survived were thrown into chaos, and the ensuing turmoil left no continent or people unscathed. Organization fell apart. Knowledge was nearly forgotten in the more immediate need to find food, shelter, and clothing. Ensuing calamities further degraded the general knowledge.
Why were they able to accomplish so much? Because they learned and lived lives based on the Laws of God and Nature. They understood the principle of cause and effect. In our present age, science accepts this law as affecting everything in the Universe, from stars and planets to chemical reactions. Isaac Newton defined this principle more than three hundred years ago, but science still limits this principle to things exterior to the human being, as though humans, alone, live outside the Universe of which we are a part. Christ defined the same principle for humans two thousand years ago in the Golden Rule, clearly indicating that cause and effect is a crucial guide in human events as well. Until this and other laws are understood, and closely adhered to, humankind is prone to mistakes. The larger the errors, the larger the effects that stem from the causes being set in motion. Until we learn these laws, we are destined to experience their effects, and the most painful will always seem random and unexplained. Hope for the future lies in our ever-increasing knowledge of, and adherence to, the universal Laws of God.
