Bible Quotes, Primary Values and Innate Needs

By: Jeff Liautaud on November 3, 2023 | Filed in: Outreach

Summary: A desire for Spirit-centered community is infused in us at the core of our being. Loquate a 501c3 corporation seeks an interdependence based on Spirit-centered community by changing ourselves and no one else. By Spirit we mean a caring presence that exists outside of ourselves.

Everyone’s hobby is happiness. The innate needs of human kind may be the greatest discovery in Natural Law in this century.  Happiness is understood.  Primary values satisfy innate needs. Smart® habits overcome the scurvy of the human spirit which is diminished motivation and well-being, like sailors eating limes to prevent scurvy. Interfaith Smart® group members build community in every group of which they are a part, and individually tend toward peace, happiness, and joy.

Smart® is a registered trademark of Loquate in International Class 045. In this article, the founder of Loquate with over 50 years’ experience building safe sharing environments, integrates scientific Natural Law discovery about Spirit-centered community in unity for all mankind as Biblically or Scripturally possible, nothing more.

That Natural Law which comes from God is consistent with teachings of Jesus below. This means that a path to God, is consistent with Arthur C. Brooks in the four pillars of happiness: family, friends, work, and faith, is consistent with the science of Deci and Ryan on Innate Needs, and is consistent with Loquate’s scientific discovery of primary values that satisfy innate needs. In short, happiness is found in scripture and in Natural Law. Happiness is a path, not a destination. God is the ultimate destination.  Read and enjoy the text below. Join Work Meets Faith Ministry.

Unity for all

Ephesians 4:13

“And so we shall all come together to that oneness in our faith and in our knowledge of the Son of God; we shall become mature people, reaching to the very height of Christ’s full stature.”


Read below what Christ stood for and you will see unity for all mankind. The integration with Natural Law is this.  If I within my religious domain satisfy my innate needs I must permit others within their religious domains to satisfy their innate needs. This universal law is unpacked below in the author’s analysis of Natural Law. The one does not deny the other. Catholics, Christians, and all people take comfort in Christianity and in Natural Law as you shall see below.

They both inevitably lead to the same place “unity for all,” or we deny our very selves. For if what we must have for happiness thru Natural Law is thwarted, then we cannot be happy.  Therefore we must offer the same opportunity for happiness to all mankind. We can be joyful. In joy we do not get all that we want, but we get enough.

 Love One Another:

John 13:34-35

“And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. If you have love for one another, then everyone will know that you are my disciples.”


A primary value, doing that which is truly in the best interests of others, satisfies the innate need for relatedness. Everyone has innate needs to satisfy. In unity with all mankind, satisfying innate needs is how we are all alike.

Pray for your Enemies:

Matthew 5:44-45

“But now I tell you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may become the children of your  Father in heaven.”


Primary value attaining a goal satisfies innate need of competence.  If you live this primary value in all cases in unity with all mankind, you satisfy your innate need for competence. But to do this, prayer to the caring presence outside of yourself is essential. Being in communion with the transcendent deepens your faith path.


Matthew 4:17

From that time Jesus began to preach his message: “Turn away from your sins, because the Kingdom of heaven is near!”


Change yourself from ways that hurt and harm others, to more loving ways. Makes yourself small that God might be big. Still flourish as a human being by operating in your area of meaningful expansion for yourself. Each has work to do from all eternity that only that person can do. Satisfies innate need for autonomy. Do this in community betterment with all mankind.

Believe that Jesus is in the Father:

John 14:11

“Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. If not, believe because of the things I do.”


Understand a caring presence exists outside of ourselves. Share miracles first hand. Only the power of the Spirit provides miracles. Build Spirit-centered community. Join Loquate.


Take up your Cross and Follow Me:

Matthew 16:24-25

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you want to come with me, you must forget yourself, carry your cross, and follow me. For if you want to save your own life, you will lose it; but if you lose your life for my sake, you will find it.”


We have our cross when one wrongfully over us, thwarts our innate needs. Even when our innate needs are thwarted we can speak the truth always and stay with the one over us being kind to them, long enough until they are kind back to us. Empower them to satisfy their innate needs and the innate needs of others by increasing awareness of the suffering they are causing us. But the goal is to change our self and no one else. Satisfying innate needs yourself by surrendering to God while empowering all to satisfy their innate needs, brings peace.


Go and Make Disciples:

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus drew near and said to them, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”


Free will is given to everyone. Have faith in every person to do the next right thing. Spread the presence of God within you by sharing your miracles first hand. Only the power of the Spirit brings miracles. Make your testimony. This evolves into faith in God, Who alone can accomplish all things.

Pray Always:

Luke 21:36

“Be on watch and pray always that you will have the strength to go safely through all those things that will happen and to stand before the Son of Man.”


Prayer calms everything down and makes plain God’s will for us to satisfy our innate needs and to empower all around us to satisfy their innate needs. By our example changing only our self we inevitably change behaviorally every sociological system of which we are a part empowering others to do the same. As you change, sociological systems of which you are a part change. New options for being come forth from your example. Every person has innate needs thwarted, but Smart® habits cannot be thwarted. Joy comes even when we do not get all that we want, but we get enough. That is why we focus only on changing our self and no one else. Spirit-centered community brings freedom to live our deepest beliefs in harmony with all.

Teaching about Retaliation.

Matthew 5:38-42

“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’ But now I tell you: do not take revenge on someone who wrongs you. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, let him slap your left cheek too.

And if someone takes you to court to sue you for your shirt, let him have your coat as well. And if one of the occupation troops forces you to carry his pack one mile, carry it two miles. When someone asks you for something, give it to him; when someone wants to borrow something, lend it to him.


Empower others to satisfy their innate needs, even when they may thwart our innate needs. This will satisfy your innate need for relatedness by the primary value of doing that which is truly in the best interests of others. Once the Smart® process is learned as Smart® habits you no longer think about it. Smart® habits can’t be thwarted. This explains why suffering brings joy in “unity for all.”
