Man must tend the garden of his soul and care for plants and bushes in it, weeding, pruning and looking after this garden, else, things will fall into the garden, choke it, and produce undesirable results. The natural law of the world is that it puts forth, that is, natural objects (plants) grow, put forth blossom and seed, flourish for a season or so, and then pass away. So also, there is a mental law (for man’s mind puts forth) and a moral law (all human action shows the values and choices of the individual doer). From the Natural Law, Allen arrives at these mental and moral laws which govern the circumstances of a man’s life.
