Call it the First Covenant, the Rainbow Covenant, the Noahide or Universal Covenant, natural law, or natural religion...

Whatever you call the eternal covenant or compact between God and all the human race- between the Creator of all things and mankind - it's one of the master keys to wisdom: to Biblical religion's universal truths, to higher consciousness, and grace.

This is the Path: the age-old Covenant (of Chapter 9 of the Bible's Book of Genesis, the Noahide Law, the Seven Commandments of the Children of Noah (the sheva mitzvot b'nei No'ach). These amazing principles, of law and religion and philosophy all flow directly from the Golden Rule (Leviticus 19:18 and 19:34). But they aren't necessarily self-evident.

Called the "Path of the Noahite," or "righteous Gentile," in Masonic thinking, in Koranic thinking it's called "Primordial Islam." It's "the laws of Nature and of Nature's God" in America's Declaration of Independence, "the Way of the Scholar" in Confucian thinking, or even, simply and roughly, "Judaism for Non-Jews."

Years ago - starting from non-religious, skeptical, frequently even atheistic thinking - we stumbled upon this wealth of wisdom. As ancient as it is, it wasn't widely known, and, in fact, it still isn't today. But it casts much light on the theory of human history, and even on the underlying nature of the Universe... The First Covenant and the Seven Noahide Laws opened our eyes, eventually, to worlds of insight, decency, and power. It made us more conscious servants of HaShem.

The Word is very close to you, in your mouth, and in your heart, that you might do it.
Deuteronomy 30:11-14

This is the path we were all made for.

Psalm 119:97
