seven spiritual laws of success
Based on Deepak Chopra's book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success:
Success could be defined as--'Continual Expansion of Happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals'
1. Law of Karma
Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind...what we sow is what we reap. And when we choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of our karma is happiness and success.
Witness Choices in each moment - best to be fully conscious / aware in the moment
Evaluate Consequences of your choices - will choice bring happiness to those around me
Listen with your Heart -ask your heart for guidance - be guided - look for feeling of comfort / discomfort
2. Law of least effort
Nature's intelligence functions with effortless ease...with carefreeness, harmony, and love. And when we harness the forces of harmony, joy, and love, we create success and good fortune with effortless ease.
Practice Acceptance - accept people as are - know that this moment is as it is supposed to be
Take Responsibility for actions, not blaming others/ thinhgs
Have your awareness in Defenselessness - no need to persuade others - don't be attached rigidly to one point of view
3. Law of Giving and Receiving
The universe operates through dynamic exchange...giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.
Give something to everyone you meet eg. not necessarily money, can be gift, compliment, or silent blessing or prayer.
Be open to receive from others. Gratefully Receive gifts, nature, sunlight, snow etc.
Make commitment to Circulate, caring, appreciating and loving
4. Pure Potentiality
The source of all creation is pure consciousness...pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest. And when we realize that our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in the universe.
Practise Silent Meditation - 15 minutes in morning & night, ideally 30mins dawn & dusk
Commune With Nature - appreciate the beauty
Practise Non-Judgement - say to yourself Today I shall Judge Nothing
5. Law of Intention and desire
Inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment...intention and desire in the field of pure potentiality have infinite organizing power. And when we introduce an intention in the fertile ground of pure potentiality, we put this infinite organizing power to work for us.
Present Moment Awareness - slip into silence
List Desires - keep them to yourself
Release your desires to the Universe - relinquishing attachment and outcome
6. Law of detachment
In detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty...in the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past, from the known, which is the prison of past conditioning. And in our willingness to step into the unknown, the field of all possibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.
Commit self to Detached Involvement - no rigid or forced solutions
Wisdom of Uncertainty leads to freedom -
Open to Infinite Possibilities of choices and outcomes
7. Law of Dharma
Everyone has a purpose in life...a unique or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.
Discover the Higher Self - beyond and above ego - spend time in silence
List Your Unique Talents - that lead to state of bliss
Serve Others - ask yourself how can I help? Rather tham what's in it for me - share more, treat people like your brother's and sister's
