For a person to know the law that makes him free, he must be elevated from a material to a spiritual life.
I have many things to say and to judge on you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him. They understand not that he spake to them of the Father. Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
— JOHN 8:26-28
"I and God are the same," said the teacher. If you think that my spiritual being is God, you are mistaken. But my real self is close to God, and to other people.

— After Henry David Thoreau
Submission to the law created by men makes one a slave; obedience to the law created by God makes one free
