First and the foremost thing that I wanna do is to apologize for not being very active for a long period of time or rather I would say a whole year. Extreme apologize for being such a lazy ass. So, the last year have taught me a lot of great things. I have been introduced to something very magnificeint and beautiful. And I am extremely thankful to life for that.
So I was reading a very beautiful text called The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra. The book touched my heart and soul, and I would like to share certain excerpt from the text. We can always discuss things and his philosophy. The book is available online and I, also own my copy of case anyone willing to read can always borrow. I am always open for chats and discussion.
It is very important to take care of our spirit. In the run for materialistic possession, we tend to neglect our spiritual well-being. The purpose of this article is entire focused on helping and healing our spiritual health. In a world where so many things require our attention, the larger purpose of our lives can be forgotten. This article captures the essence of Chopra’s wisdom, and shares a wealth of information in very precise terms.
Success in life can be defined as the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals. There are many aspects to success, material wealth is only one of them. Moreover, success is a journey not a destination. Materialistic pleasures, are endured in lifee to make this journey more enjoyable, but true success includes good health, energy and enthusiasm for life, fulfilling relationships, creative freed, and a sense of well-being.
With the knowledge of these laws, we align with nature’s intelligence, and our dreams ad desires are easily fulfilled. When we understand these law and apply them, anything can be created.
1. The Law of Pure Potential
Pure potentiality is pure conciousness; it is the field of all possibilities and infinite creativity.
Take time each day to be silent, to connect with your spirit, to just Be. Practice non judgement. Begin each day with the statement “Today, I shall judge nothing that occurs,” and throught out the day remind yourself of that statement each time you catch yourself judging. Commune with nature. Silently observe the intelligence within everything. Watch a sunset, listen to the sound of the ocean, or simply smell the scent of a flower.
2. The Law of Giving and Receiving
Give a gift to everyone you encounter, be it a compliment, a flower, or a prayer. This will begin the process of circulating joy and affluence in your life and in the lives of others. Gratefully receive every gift that life offers you. Be open to receiving, whether it be a material gift from others, a compliment, or prayer. Silently wish everyone you encounter happiness, joy, and laughter. By giving and receiving the gifts of caring, affection, appreciation, and love, you will keep wealth circulating in your life.
3. The Law of Karma Or Cause and Effect
Witness the choices you make in every moment. The best way to prepare for any moment in the future is to be fully conscious in the present. Whenever you make a choice, ask yourself two questions : “What are the consequences of this choice ?” and “Will this choice bring happiness to me and to those who are affected by this choice?” Ask your heart for guidance, and be guided by its message of comfort or discomfort. If the choice feels comfortable, go ahead with that choice. If the choice feels uncomfortable, then don’t make that choice.
4. The Law of Least Effort
Accept people, circumstances, and events as they are this moment. When confronted with any challenge, remind yourself, “This moment is as it should be,” because the entire universe is as it should be. Take responsibility for your situation without blaming anything or anyone, including yourself. Every problem is an opportunity to take this moment and transform it into a greater benefit. Relinquish the need to defend your point of view. In defenselessness, you remain open to all points of view, not rigidly attached to one of them.
5. The Law of Intention and Desire
Our intention and desires, when released in the field of pure potentiality, have infinite organizing power. Just by introducing an intention in the fertile ground of pure potentiality, we activate this field, and put its infinite organizing power to work for us. This isn’t mystical notion. Energy and information exist everywhere in nature, at the level of pure consciousness, there is nothing other than energy and information. We can consciously change the energy ad information of our own body, and influence the energy and information of our extended body – our environment – and cause things to manifest in it.
This change is brought about by two qualities inherent in consciousness : attention and intention. Attention energizes, and intention transforms. Whatever we put our attention on grows stronger in our life; whatever we take our attention away from withers and disappears. Intention triggers the transformation of energy and information, and organizes its own fulfillment. The quality of intention on object of attention orchestrates an infinity of details to bring about the intended outcome. Intention is the real power behind desire because it is desire without attachment to make outcome.
Present – moment awareness is powerful, because the future is created by our actions in present. We cannot take action in the past or in the future. Past and future are born in imagination. Only the present, which is awareness, is real and eternal.
Remain established in the awareness of your true Self.
6. The Law of Detachment
Practice detached involvement. Stay alert to the opportunity within every problem by letting go of your idea of how things should be. Accept uncertainty as an essential part of your experience. In your willingness to accept uncertainty, solutions will spontaneously appear. Remain open to all possibilities and enjoy every moment in the journey of your life – all the fun, mystery, and magic in the field of pure potentiality.
7. The Law of Dharma
It implies our unique destiny, our place in the cosmic plan. The seventh spiritual law of success brings the preceding six laws to fruitation, for when we master the Law of Dhrama, the whole universe in on our side. Every law and power of nature comes to our aid and supports us spontaneously. Self – exploration isn’t a task we accomplish and then abandon. Every person is a never – ending project of the universe.
Nurture the divinity within you, the spirit animating your body and mind, by carrying the consciousness of timeless Being in the midst if time – bound experience. Make a list of your unique talents. Then list all the things that you love to do while expressing these talents. Ask yourself daily, “How can I help?” and “How can I serve?” The answers to these questions will help you to serve your fellow human beings with love.
When we put our attention on these laws and practice the steps outlined the above mentioned book, we can manifest anything we want – all the affluence and success that we desire. Life becomes more joyful and abundant in every way, for these laws are also the spiritual laws of life that make living worthwhile.
Everything in life is an expression of the miraculous unfolding of spirit. In every moment, spirit just unfolds spontaneously, and the universe evolves into higher levels of creativity, awareness, and divinity.
