Intensifying the Law

Yesterday's gospel and reflection were on Matthew 5:21-37, with the reflection pointing out that Christ did not abrogate any of the laws of Moses, but actually intensified them. 

If we look at the fact that all matter is physically a specific vibrational signature of energy, Christ is pointing out that the energy of thought is equivalent to the energy of matter, and we must, therefore, guard our thoughts as much as we guard our actions against sin.  It's a much harder path to follow than any previous religious law. 

But, it is pointed out that if we follow the two commandments that Christ gave us - to love God with all our heart, soul and spirit; and to love our neighbors as ourselves - and let those thoughts consume both our minds and our actions, it's not such a tough path after all.
