This review is from: The Ten Commandments: The Master Key to Life (Paperback)
Emmet Fox has done an amazing job of going beyond the obvious meaning of the ten commandments and bringing insight into different levels of meaning from physical to spiritual, emphasizing that the commandments were intended to bring to light metaphysical truths. From this higher level of understanding, "thou shalt not's" are in effect impossibilities.

Because ultimately "there is only One", from spiritual perspective whatever we do unto others, we do unto ourselves. The commandments are in this way not intended to limit one's freedom and enjoyment of life, but to increase it through one's awareness of the universal principles, so that we don't hurt ourselves out of ignorance.

All the commandments arise out of one, basic, essential truth - that there is only One Power, Love and Intelligence, that this One (God) is the Source of all our blessings and that by maintaining this awareness of oneness we can have everything we desire directly from the Source, without looking elsewhere. All the pain and suffering (sin or error, if you like) arise from ignoring this one spiritual fact.

Emmet Fox has beautifully explained why we can't use God's name in vain. "God" is for each individual that to which each individual attributes power, that which each individual attributes as a source of his blessings. And since our thoughts, emotions, beliefs manifest in our daily experience, each one will experience in his life whatever the idea of God represents to him. Thus an individual who wholeheartedly believes God to be loving and good, will program positive expectations in his subconscious and will manifest such experiences in his life, and the individual who believes God to be vengeful and just waiting to dish out punishments, will experience hardship. For an individual who says he doesn't believe in God, he is still "worshipping" that to which he attributes power and if "that" is limited, so will he limit his own life because he will program limitations into his subconscious mind and will have to experience them in his life. After all, one's outer experience of life is merely a reflection of one's own thoughts, emotions and beliefs.

Emmet Fox also explains the symbolism used in the Bible - and Egypt and Exodus (where this commandments are placed in the Bible) are very rich in symbolism. In essence "getting out of Egypt" stands for getting out of trouble and limitation, shifting one's awareness from physical to spiritual, going from effect back to cause, learning to contact the Infinite Love, Power and Wisdom within and learning to express them in one's daily life.

I was delighted that Emmet has pointed out the meaning of "sexual polarity" and merging or feminine and masculine principle from the perspective of prayer (while I believe that every metaphysician is fully aware of this, most people are not): masculine principle stands for the "idea" (thought, intellect, conscious mind), whereas feminine principle stands for "emotion" (energy, power, subconscious mind). Just as it takes a man and a woman to create a baby, so it takes an idea merged with emotion to manifest it into physical reality. An idea gives shape to that which we desire to manifest, whereas the intensity of emotion charges it with energy, gives it power to manifest. Both arise out of One source - God - Superconscious.
