Series 2 - Lesson 4 - Annotation 20
What is meant by the statement, "I will put my law in their inward parts, and in their heart will I write it" (Jer. 31:33)?
20. Every atom of our being has within it God's law of life. Even doctors are astonished at the marvelous way in which the various parts of the body function and are renewed; God's law is indeed in our "inward parts." Because the involuntary functions of the body are carried on by the subconscious, that phase of mind has to have the intelligence to handle bodily functions. God has "written" or inscribed His intelligent laws of life upon our heart or subconscious so that it may carry out its work. If the thinking or conscious phase does not give true patterns to the subconscious (heart), then by the law of mind action the subconscious will manifest the untrue patterns — until such time as the conscious phase of soul turns to the Superconscious for right directions to pass on to the subconscious. Then we are "transformed by the renewing of [our] mind" (Rom. 12:2), for we have become obedient to the inspirations of the Superconsclous and have impressed spiritual ideals upon the subconscious. The heart will then faithfully carry out the true law inscribed upon it.
