Deepak Chopra Presents A POWERFUL Spiritual Guide To The Fulfillment Of Your DREAMS (Full Audiobook) success in life could be defined as the
continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals
success is the ability to fulfill your desires with effortless ease and yet
success including the creation of wealth has always been considered to be a
process that requires hard work and it is often considered to be at the expense
of others we need a more spiritual approach to success and to affluence
which is the abundant flow of all good things to you there are many parts to
success material wealth is only one component
moreover success is a journey not a destination
material abundance in all its expressions happens to be one of those
things that makes the journey more enjoyable but success includes good
health it includes energy and enthusiasm for life fulfilling relationships
creative freedom emotional and psychological stability a sense of
well-being and peace of mind but even with the experience of all these things
we will remain unfulfilled unless we nurture the seeds of divinity inside us
in reality we are divinity in disguise and the gods and goddesses in embryo
that are contained within us seek to be fully materialized true success is
therefore the experience of the miraculous it is the unfolding of the
divinity within us and when we begin to experience our life as a miracle not
occasionally but all the time then we will know the true meaning of success before we define the seven laws we have
to understand the concept of what law is law is the process by which the
unmanifest becomes the manifest it’s the process by which the observer
becomes the observed it’s the process by which the seer becomes the scenery it’s
the process through which the dreamer manifests the dream all of creation
everything that exists in the physical world is the result of the unmanifest
transforming itself into the manifest everything that we behold comes from the
unknown our physical body the physical universe anything and everything that we
can perceive through our senses is the expression of the unmanifest becoming
manifest the physical universe is nothing other than the self curving back
within itself to experience itself a spirit mind and physical matter in other
words all processes of creation are processes through which the self or
divinity expresses itself consciousness in motion expresses itself as the
objects of the universe in the eternal dance of life the source of all creation
is divinity or the spirit the process of creation is divinity in motion or the
mind and the object of creation is the physical universe which includes the
physical body and these three components of reality spirit mind and body or
observer the process of observing and the observed are essentially the same
thing they all come from the same place the field of pure potentiality which is
purely unmanifest the physical laws of the universe are actually this whole
process of divinity in motion or consciousness in motion when we
understand these laws and apply them in our lives anything we want can be
created because the same laws that nature uses to create a forest or a
galaxy or a human body can also bring about the full
Philmont of all our other desires now let’s go over the seven spiritual laws
of success and see how we can apply them in our lives the first spiritual law of success is
the law of pure potentiality this law is based on the fact that we are in our
essential state pure consciousness pure consciousness is pure potentiality it is
the feel of all possibilities and infinite creativity other attributes of
consciousness are pure knowledge and boundedness perfect balance infinite
silence invincibility simplicity and bliss this is our essential nature our
essential nature is one of pure potentiality when you discover your
essential nature and know who you really are
in that knowing itself is the ability to fulfill any dream you have because you
are the eternal possibility the immeasurable potential of all that was
is and will be the field of pure potentiality is your own self and the
more you come from the experience of the self the closer you are to the field of
pure potentiality the experience of the self or self referral means that our
internal reference point is our own spirit and not the objects of our
experience the opposite of self referral is object refer in object referral we
are always influenced by objects outside the self which includes situations
circumstances people and things in object referral we constantly seek the
approval of others our thinking and our behavior is always in anticipation of a
response it is therefore fear-based in object
referral we also feel an intense need to control things we feel an intense
for power but if you really look at it the need to control things the need for
approval the need for power our needs that are based on fear this kind of
power is not the power of pure potentiality or the power of the self
which is real power but rather power as it is usually used to control other
people if you didn’t have fear you wouldn’t need to control and you
wouldn’t need to struggle to have this kind of power over others in object
referral your internal reference point is your ego but the ego is not who you
really are the ego is your self-image it is your social mask and it is your
social mask that wants approval it wants to control it wants to have power
because it lives in fear your true self which is your spirit your soul is
completely free of those things it is immune to criticism it is unfair full of
any challenge and it feels beneath no one and yet even though it feels beneath
no one it is humble because it recognizes that everyone else is the
same self the same spirit and different disguises
it feels respect for other people while at the same time feeling beneath no one
that’s the difference between object referral and self refer in self referral
you experience your true being which is unfair full of any challenge and feels
beneath no one this is true power power that comes from object referral through
an object of reference is ego based power and is not true power because it
lasts only as long as the object is there if you have a certain title if
you’re the president of the country or the chairman of a corporation if you
have a lot of money that kind of power goes with the job it goes with the money
it goes with the title and as long as you have all that you have ego based
power but as soon as the title the job the money goes
away so does the power self power on the other hand is permanent and there are
certain characteristics of that self power it draws people to you and it also
draws things that you want to you it develops in such a way that people
situations and circumstances are drawn to you to support what you want this is
also called the support of natural law or support from the laws of nature it is
the support of divinity it is the support that comes from being in the
state of grace and in this case your power is such that you enjoy a bond with
people and people enjoy a bond with you your power is that of bonding a bonding
that comes from true love how do we access the law of pure potentiality the
feel of all possibilities if you want to enjoy the benefits of the field of pure
potentiality if you want to make full use of the creativity which is inherent
in pure consciousness then you have to have access to it and one way to access
the field is through meditation and the practice of silence practicing silence
means making a commitment to take a certain amount of time and you can do it
periodically to simply be experiencing silence means not only not speaking and
not engaging in conversation it also means not looking at television not
listening to the radio not reading a book because when you read a book you’re
engaged in a conversation with the author and in this case when you’re
listening to this audio right now you’re engaged in a conversation with me I’m
speaking you’re listening and evaluating you’re defining you’re judging this is
all very well at times of course because this is part of life part of activity
but if activity is never given an opportunity for silence then this
creates an inner turbulence set aside a little time every once in a while to
experience silence not speaking is one component of
experiencing silence for a certain period of the day you could do it for
two hours or if that seems a lot do it for a one hour period and every once in
a while experience silence for an extended period of time like a day or
two days or even a whole week what happens when you go into this experience
of silence initially your internal dialogue becomes even more turbulent you
have all this need you’ve got to say these things I have known people who go
absolutely crazy the first day or two when they do it for an extended period
of time a sense of urgency and anxiety suddenly comes over them but as they
stay with it the internal dialogue begins to quiet down and as they stay
with it for some time that silence really becomes profound because after a
while the mind gives up it says there’s no point in going around and around if
you’re not going to speak period and as the internal dialogue quietens you begin
to experience the stillness of the field of pure potentiality practicing silence
periodically as it is convenient you is one way to experience the law of pure
potentiality practicing non-judgement is another because to judge is to
constantly evaluate and classify things as right and wrong good and bad when you
are constantly evaluating classifying labeling analyzing this creates a lot of
turbulence in your internal dialogue and when you create turbulence in your
internal dialogue you restrict the flow of energy between you and the field of
pure potentiality you literally squeeze the gap between thoughts the gap is your
connection to the field of pure potentiality it is that silent space
between thoughts it is that inner stillness that connects you to true
power and when you squeeze the gap you squeeze your connection
the field of pure potentiality and infinite creativity there’s a prayer in
the course of miracles that says today I shall judge nothing that occurs non
judgment creates silence in your mind so it is a good idea to begin your day with
that prayer with that statement and throughout today remind yourself of that
statement each time you catch yourself judging and if practicing this procedure
for the whole day it seems too difficult then you may simply say to yourself for
the next two hours I won’t judge anything or for the next hour I make
this promise to myself to experience non judgment and then you can extend that
gradually and don’t forget to spend time each day in meditation as well ideally
speaking meditate at least 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the
evening through silence through meditation and through non judgment you
will access the first law the law of pure potentiality and once you start
doing that you can add a fourth component to this procedure and that is
regularly spending time in communing with nature direct connection with
nature whether it be a stream or a forest or a mountain or a lake or the
seashore that connection with nature’s intelligence will also help you access
the field of pure potentiality and as you gain more and more access to the
field of pure potentiality you will spontaneously receive creative thoughts
because it is also the field of infinite creativity and pure knowledge Franz
Kafka once said you need not leave your room remain sitting at your table and
listen you need not even listen simply wait you need not even wait just learn
to become quiet and still and solitary the world will freely offer itself to
you to be unmasked it has no choice it will roll in ecstasy at your feet
the affluence of the universe the lavish display an abundance of the universe is
an expression of the creative mind of nature the more tuned in you are to the
creative mind of nature the more you have access to the infinite unbounded
creativity of nature’s mind but first you have to go beyond the turbulence of
your internal dialogue to connect with that abundant affluent infinite creative
mind and then you create the possibility of dynamic activity while at the same
time carrying the stillness of the eternal unbounded creative mind this
exquisite combination of silent unbounded infinite mind along with
dynamic bounded individual mind is the perfect balance of stillness and
movement simultaneously that can create whatever you want the coexistence of
opposites the stillness and dynamism at the same time makes you independent of
situations circumstances people and things stillness alone is the
potentiality for creativity movement alone is creativity restricted to a
certain aspect of its expression but the combination of movement and stillness is
creativity Unleashed in all directions wherever the power of intention takes
you wherever you go in the midst of movement and activity carry your
stillness within you and the chaotic movement around you will never
overshadow your access to the reservoir of creativity the field of pure
potentiality access to the field of pure potentiality will also give you insight
into the mirror of relationship our relationship is a mirror of your
relationship with yourself if you have guilt fear and insecurity over money or
anything else then these are a reflection of guilt fear and insecurity
has basic aspects of your personality money will not solve these basic
problems of existence only intimacy with the self
will bring about true healing you must learn to get in touch with the innermost
essence of your being this true essence is beyond the ego it is fearless it is
free it is immune to criticism it does not fear any challenge it is beneath no
one and yet it is humble and when you are grounded in the knowledge of your
true self when you really understand your true nature you will never feel
guilty fearful or insecure about money or affluence or fulfilling your desires
because you will realize that the essence of wealth is life energy it is
pure potentiality and pure potentiality is your intrinsic nature applying the
law of pure potentiality I will put the law of pure potentiality into effect by
making a commitment to take the following steps one I will get in touch
with the field of pure potentiality by taking the time each day to be silent to
just be I will sit alone in silent meditation at least twice a day for
approximately 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening to in the
ecstasy of my own silence and also by communing with nature I will enjoy the
life throb of Ages the field of pure potentiality and unbounded creativity 3
today I will practice non judgment I will begin my day with the statement
today I shall judge nothing that occurs and throughout the day I will remind
myself not to judge the second spiritual law of success is
the law of giving this law could also be called the law of giving and receiving
because the universe operates through dynamic exchange nothing is static your
body is a dynamic and constant exchange with the body of the universe your mind
is dynamically interacting with the mind of the cosmos your energy is an
expression of cosmic energy this harmonious interaction of elements and
forces in your life operates as the law of giving and receiving and because your
body and your mind and the universe are in constant and dynamic exchange if you
stop the circulation of energy it’s like stopping the flow of blood as soon as
you stop the flow of blood it begins to plot to coagulate to strangle that is
why you must give and receive in order to keep wealth and affluence and
abundance or anything you want in life circulating in your life money is really
a symbol of the life energy we exchange and the life energy we use as a result
of the service we provide to the universe and in order to keep that
energy coming to us we have to keep the energy circulating if you stop the
circulation of money if your only intention is to hold on to the money
since it is life energy you will stop the circulation like a river money must
keep flowing otherwise it begins to stagnate to strangulate
and it can no longer support life circulation is what keeps it alive and
vital the word as fluent in fact comes from the root word as flue air which
means to flow to the word affluence means to flow in abundance in reality
receiving is the same thing as giving because giving and receiving are
different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe the more you give the
more it will return to you because you keep the abundance of the universe
circulating in your life what goes up must come down what goes out must come
back and the return is directly proportional to the giving which is
unconditional and from the heart the best way to put the law of giving into
operation to start the process of circulation is to make a decision that
anytime you come into contact with anyone you will give them something it
doesn’t have to be in the form of material things it could be a flower a
compliment or a prayer in fact the most powerful forms of giving are non
material the gifts of caring attention affection appreciation and love are some
of the most precious gifts you can give and they don’t cost you anything when
you meet someone you can silently send them a blessing wishing them happiness
joy and laughter this kind of silent giving can be very powerful one of the
things that I was taught as a child and which I taught my children also is never
to go to anyone’s house without taking something never visit anyone without
bringing them a gift you may say how can I give to others when at the moment I
don’t have enough myself you could bring a flower one flower you can bring a note
or a card which say something about your feelings for the person you’re visiting
you can bring a compliment you can bring a prayer but make a decision to give
wherever you go to whomever you see and as long as you’re giving you will be
receiving again it doesn’t have to be anything material but by-and-bye
include material things also they don’t have to be expensive the most important
thing is to start the process of circulation the more you give the more
confidence you will gain in that it brings things to you and the more you
receive the more you will also be able to give applying the law of giving I will put
the law of giving into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps
one wherever I go and whoever I encounter I shall bear a gift for them
the gift may be a compliment a flower or a prayer today I shall give something to
everyone I come into contact with and so I will begin the process of circulating
wealth and affluence in my life and in the life of others – today I will
gratefully receive all the gifts that life has to offer me I will receive the
gifts of nature sunlight and the sound of birds singing or spring showers or
the first snow winter I will also be open to receiving from
others whether it be in the form of a material gift money a compliment or a
prayer 3 I will make a commitment to keep wealth circulating in my life by
giving and receiving life’s most precious gifts the gifts of caring
affection appreciation and love each time I meet someone I will silently wish
them happiness joy and laughter the third spiritual law of success is
the law of karma karma is both action and the consequence of that action it is
cause and effect simultaneously because every action generates the force of
energy that returns to us in like-kind there is nothing unfamiliar about the
law of karma everyone has heard the expression what you saw is what you reap
obviously if we want to create happiness in our lives we must learn to solve the
seeds of happiness therefore karma implies the action of conscious choice
making you and I are essentially infinite choice makers in every moment
of our existence we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access
to an infinity of choices and the best way to understand and maximize the use
of karmic law is to become consciously aware of the choices we make in every
moment whether you like it or not the factors that everything that is
happening this moment is a result of the choices you’ve made in the past
unfortunately a lot of us make choices unconsciously and therefore we don’t
think their choices and yet they are if I were to insult you you would most
likely make the choice of being offended if I were to pay you a compliment
you would most likely make the choice of being pleased or flattered but think
about it it’s still a choice I could offend you and I could insult you and
you could make the choice of not being offended I could pay you a compliment
and you could make the choice of not letting that flatter you either in other
words most of us even though we are infinite choice makers have become
bundles of conditioned reflexes that are constantly being triggered by people and
circumstance into predictable outcomes of behavior these conditioned reflexes
are a lot like Pavlovian conditioning Pavlov is famous for demonstrating that
if you give a dog some thing to it every time you ring a bell
after a while the dog starts to salivate when you just ring the bell because it
has associated one stimulus with the other most of us as a result of
conditioning have repetitious and predictable responses to the stimuli in
our environment our reaction seem to be automatically triggered by people and
circumstance and we forget that these are still choices that we are making in
every moment of our existence we are simply making these choices
unconsciously but if you step back for a moment and witness the choices you’re
making as you make those choices when in fact in just this act of witnessing you
take the whole process from the unconscious realm into the conscious
realm and you will immediately find this to be very empowering when you make any
choice any choice at all you can ask yourself two things first of all what
are the consequences of this choice that are making and in your heart you will
immediately know what these are secondly will this choice that I’m
making now bring happiness to me and to those around me if the answer is yes
then go ahead with that choice if the answer is no if that choice brings
distress to either you or to those around you then don’t make that choice
it’s as simple as that there is only one choice out of the
infinity of choices available in every second one choice that will create
happiness for you as well as for those around you and when you make that one
choice it will result in a form of behavior that is called spontaneous
right action spontaneous right action means the right action at the right
moment if the right response to every situation as it happens it’s the action
that nourishes you and everyone else that is influenced by that action there
is a very interesting mechanism that the universe has to help you make Spontini
nicely correct choices the mechanism has to do with sensations in your body your
body experiences two kinds of sensations one is a sensation of comfort the other
is a sensation of discomfort at the moment when you are consciously making a
choice pay attention to your body and ask your body if I make this choice what
happens if your body sends a message of comfort that’s the right choice if your
body sends a message of discomfort then it’s not the appropriate choice for some
people the message of comfort and discomfort is in the area of the solar
plexus but for most people it’s in the area of the heart consciously put your
attention in the heart and ask your heart what to do then wait for the
response a physical response in the form of a sensation it may be this faintest
level of feeling the faintest level of feeling but it’s there in your body only
the heart knows the correct answer most people think for the heart is mushy and
sentimental but it’s not the heart is intuitive it is holistic it’s contextual
it’s relational it doesn’t have a win-lose orientation it taps into the
cosmic computer and takes everything into account at times it may not even
seem rational but the heart has a computing ability that is far more
accurate and far more precise than anything within the limits of rational
thought whether we know it or not life is a continuum of choices some are made
consciously others are made unconsciously you can use the law of
karma to create money and affluence and the flow of all good things to you
anytime you want but first you must become consciously aware that your
future is generated by the choices you’re making in every moment of your
life if you do this on a regular basis then you’re making full use of the law
of karma and the more you bring your choices into the level of your conscious
awareness the more you will make those choices
which are spontaneously correct both for you and those around you and then it
will become easier for you to write the script of your life since karma means
action then anytime you perform an action that’s a karmic episode if you
have a cup of coffee for example that’s karma that action generates memory and
memory has the ability or it becomes the potentiality to generate desire and
desire generates action again the operational software of your soul then
is karma memory and desire that’s what you’re made up of your soul is nothing
other than a bundle of consciousness that is full of the software and all the
actions in your past have created memories and desires in the operational
software that exists in the gap what about past Karma
and how its influencing us now there are three things you can do about past Karma
one is to pay your karmic debts most people do that they go about paying
their karmic debts and sometimes there’s a lot of suffering involved in the
payment of those debts that may be a choice you make also a lot of people
choose to do this unconsciously of course the law of karma
says no debt in the universe ever goes unpaid there’s a perfect accounting
system in this universe and everything is a constant – and flow of energy the
second thing you can do is to transmute or transform your karma this is a very
interesting process in which you ask yourself as you’re paying your karmic
debt how can I make this experience useful to my fellow human beings how can
I learn something from it what’s here for me to learn from this experience why
is this happening and what is the message that the universe is giving to
me by doing this you look for the seed of opportunity and tie that seed of
opportunity with your Dharma but a purpose in life which we’ll talk about
in the seventh spiritual law of success and then you transmute the Karma
to a new expression you haven’t really gotten rid of your karma but you’re able
to take a karmic episode and create a new Karma
out of it the third way to deal with karma is to transcend it transcend means
to wash it off to become completely independent of it and the way to
transcend the karma is to keep going into the gap it’s like washing a dirty
piece of cloth in a stream of water every time you wash it you take away a
few stains you keep washing it and washing it you wash or transcend the
seeds of your karma by going into the gap and coming out again and this of
course is done through the practice of meditation you can become a conscious
choice maker and learn to generate actions that are evolutionary for you
and for those that are around you and that’s all you need to do and as long as
karma is evolutionary for both the self and everyone affected by the self and
the fruit of karma will be happiness and success applying the law of karma or
cause-and-effect I will put the law of karma into effect by making a commitment
to take the following steps one today i will witness the choices I make in each
moment and in the mere witnessing of these choices I will bring them to my
conscious awareness I will know that the best way to prepare for any moment in
the future is to be fully conscious in the present – whenever I make a choice I
will ask myself two questions what are the consequences of this choice that are
making and will this choice bring fulfillment and happiness to me and also
to those that are affected by this choice three I will then ask my heart
for guidance and be guided by its message of comfort or discomfort if the
choice feels comfortable I will plunge ahead with abandon if the
choice feels uncomfortable I will pause and see the consequences of my action
with my inner vision this guidance will enable me to make spontaneously correct
choices for myself and for all those around me the fourth spiritual law of success is
the law of least effort this law is based on the fact that nature’s
intelligence functions with effortless ease and abandoned carefreeness this is
the principle of least action of no resistance this is therefore the
principle of harmony and Lux and we can learn this lesson from nature and easily
fulfill our desires if we observe nature at work we see that least effort is
expended grass doesn’t try to grow it just grows fish don’t try to swim they
just swim flowers don’t try to bloom they bloom birds don’t try to fly they
fly this is their intrinsic nature the earth doesn’t try to spin on its own
axis it is the nature of the earth to hurtle through space it is the nature of
babies to be in bliss they bubble witless it is the nature of the Sun to
shine it is the nature of the Stars to glitter and sparkle and it is human
nature to make our dreams manifest into physical form easily and effortlessly in
Vedic science the age-old philosophy of India this principle is known as the
principle of economy of effort or do less and accomplish more ultimately you
come to the state where you do nothing and accomplish everything this means
that there is just a faint idea and then the manifestation of the idea comes
about effortlessly what is commonly called a miracle is actually an
expression of the law of least effort nature’s intelligence functions
effortlessly frictionlessly spontaneously it is nonlinear it is
intuitive holistic and nourishing and when you are in harmony with nature when
you are established in the know true-self you can make use of the law of
least effort least effort is expended when your actions are motivated by love
because nature is held together by this energy of love when you seek power and
control over other people you waste energy when you seek money or power for
the sake of the ego you spend energy chasing the illusion of happiness
instead of enjoying happiness in the moment when you seek money for personal
gain only you cut off the flow of energy to you and interfere with the expression
of nature’s intelligence but when your actions are motivated by love
there is no wastage of energy when your actions are motivated by love your
energy multiplies and accumulates and the surplus energy you gather and enjoy
can be channeled to create anything that you want including unlimited wealth you
can think of your physical body as a device for controlling energy it can
generate the store and expend energy if you know how to generate store and
expend energy in an efficient way then you can create any amount of wealth
attention to the ego consumes the greatest amount of energy when your
internal reference point is vehicle when you seek power and control over other
people or seek approval from others you spend energy in a wasteful way when that
energy is freed up it can be reach annulled and used to create anything
that you want when your internal reference point is your spirit when you
are immune to criticism and unfair full of any challenge you can harness the
power of love and use energy creatively for the experience of affluence and
evolution in the art of dreaming Carlos Castaneda writes most of our energy goes
into upholding our importance if we were capable of losing some of that
importance to extraordinary things would happen to us one we would free our
energy from trying to maintain the usually idea of our grandeur and – we
would provide ourselves with enough energy to catch a glimpse of the actual
grandeur of the universe there are three components to the law of
least effort three things you can do to put this principle of do less and
accomplish more interaction the first component is acceptance acceptance
simply means that you make a commitment today I will accept people situations
circumstances and events as they occur this means I will know that this moment
is as it should be because the whole universe is as it should be
this moment the one you’re experiencing right now
is the culmination of all the moments you have experienced in the past and
this moment is as it is because the entire universe is as it is when you
struggle against this moment you’re actually struggling against the entire
universe instead you can make the decision that today you will not
struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment this
means that your acceptance of this moment is total and complete you accept
things as they are not as you wish they were in this moment having accepted
things as they are you then take responsibility for your situation and
for all the events you see as problems this is the second component of the law
of least effort responsibility what does responsibility mean responsibility means
not blaming anyone or anything for your situation having accepted this
circumstance this event this problem responsibility then means the ability to
have a creative response to the situation as it is now
all problems contain the seeds of opportunity and this awareness allows
you to take the moment and transform it to a better situation or thing the third
component of the law of least effort is defenselessness which means that your
awareness is established in defenselessness and
you relinquish the need to convince or persuade others of your point of view if
you observe people around you you’ll see that they spend 99.9 percent of their
time defending their point of view if you just relinquish the need to defend
your point of view in that relinquishment you will have access to
enormous amounts of energy that has been previously wasted when you become
defensive blame others and do not accept and surrender to the moment then your
life meets resistance any time you encounter resistance recognize that if
you force the situation the resistance will only increase you don’t want to
stand rigid like a tall oak that cracks and collapses in the storm instead you
want to be flexible you want to be like a reed that bends with the storm and
survives when you have the exquisite combination of acceptance responsibility
and defenselessness you will experience life flowing with effortless ease commit
to follow the path of no resistance which is the paths through which
nature’s intelligence unfolds spontaneously without friction or effort
remain open to all points of view not rigidly attached to only one if you do
this your dreams and desires will flow with nature’s desires then you can
release your intentions without attachment and just wait for the
appropriate season for your desires to blossom into reality you can be sure
that when the season is right your desires will manifest this then is the
principle of least effort applying the law of least effort I will
put the law of least effort into effect by making a commitment to take the
following steps 1 I will practice acceptance today I will accept people
situations circumstances and events as they occur I will know that this moment
is as it should be because the whole universe is as it should be I will not
struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment my
acceptance is total and complete I accept things as they are this moment
not as I wish they were to having accepted things as they are I will take
responsibility for my situation and for all those events I see as problems I
know that taking responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for my
situation and this includes myself I also know that every problem is an
opportunity in disguise and this alertness to opportunities allows me to
take this moment and transform it into a greater benefit 3 today my awareness
will remain established in defenselessness I will relinquish the
need to defend my point of view I will feel no need to convince or persuade
others to accept my point of view I will remain open to all points of view and
not be rigidly attached to any one of them the fifth spiritual law of success is
the law of intention and desire this law is based on the fact that energy and
information exist everywhere in nature in fact there is nothing other than
energy and information at the level of the quantum field and the quantum field
is just another label for the field of pure consciousness or pure potentiality
and this quantum field is influenced by intention by desire let’s examine this
process in detail a flower a rainbow a tree a blade of grass the human body
when broken down to their essential components are energy and information
the whole universe in its essential nature is the movement of energy and
information the only difference between you and a tree is the difference between
the energy and informational content in that energy at the level of the quantum
field on the material level both you and the tree are made up of the same
recycled elements mostly carbon hydrogen oxygen nitrogen and the other elements
in minut amounts you could buy these in a hardware store for a couple of dollars
the difference therefore between you and the tree is not the carbon or the
hydrogen or the oxygen in fact you and the tree are constantly exchanging your
carbon and oxygen with each other the real difference between the two of you
is in the energy and in the information in the scheme of nature you and I are a
privileged species we have a nervous system that is capable of becoming aware
of the energy and information content of that localized field that gives rise to
our physical body we experience this quantum field we experience it
subjectively as our own thoughts feelings emotions
desires memories instincts drives beliefs the same quantum field that we
experience thoughts and feelings and emotions and
desires subjectively we experience it objectively
has the physical body and through the physical body we experienced the same
quantum field as the world but it’s all really the same stuff and that is why
the ancient seers exclaimed I am that you are that all this is that that’s all
there is your body is not separate from the body of the universe because of
quantum mechanical levels there are no well-defined edges
you’re like a wiggle a wave a fluctuation a convolution are tide a
whirlpool a localized disturbance and the larger quantum field the larger
quantum field the universe is your extended body not only is the human
nervous system capable of becoming aware of the information and energy of its own
quantum field but because human consciousness is infinitely flexible
through this wonderful nervous system that we have you are able to consciously
change the informational content that gives rise to your body and by
consciously changing the energy and informational content of your own
quantum mechanical body you can influence the energy and informational
content of your extended body your environment your world and therefore
cause things to manifest in it this conscious change is brought about by the
two qualities inherent in consciousness attention and intention attention
energizes and intention transforms whatever you put your attention on will
grow stronger in your life whatever you take your attention away from will
wither disintegrate and disappear intention on the other hand triggers
transformation of energy and information intention is the real power behind
desire it is actually desire without attached
and to the outcome the quality of intention on the object of attention
will orchestrate an infinity of space-time events to bring about the
outcome intended provided one follows the other spiritual laws of success this
is because intention on the fertile ground of attention has infinite
organizing power infinite organizing power means the power to organize an
infinity of space-time events all at the same time we see the expression of this
infinite organizing power in every blade of grass in every apple blossom in every
cell of our body in everything that is alive what is remarkable about the
nervous system of the human species is that it can command this infinite
organizing power through conscious intent intent in the human species is
not fixed or locked into a rigid network of energy and information it has
infinite flexibility in other words as long as you do not violate the other
laws of nature through your intent you can literally command the laws of
nature to fulfill your dreams and desires you can literally put the cosmic
computer with its infinite organizing power to work for you the only caution
is that you use your intent for the benefit of mankind and that happens
spontaneously when you are in alignment with the seven spiritual laws of success
intention lays the groundwork for the effortless spontaneous frictionless flow
of pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest
intention combined with detachment leads to life centered present moment
awareness this is how intention makes action powerful when action is performed
in present moment awareness it is most effective the past present and future
are all properties of consciousness the past is recollection
remembering memory the future is anticipation the present is awareness
therefore time is the movement of thought both past and future are born in
the imagination only the present which is awareness is real and eternal it is
it is the potentiality of space time matter and energy it is an eternal field
of possibilities experiencing itself as abstract forces
whether they be light heat electricity magnetism or gravity these forces are
neither in the past nor in the future they just are our interpretation of
these abstract forces gives us the experience of concrete phenomena and
form remembered interpretations of abstract forces create the experience of
the past anticipatory interpretations of the same abstract forces create the
future there are the qualities of attention in consciousness and when the
quality of attention and consciousness is freed from the burden of the past
then action in the present becomes the fertile ground for the creation of the
future intention grounded in this detached freedom of the present then
serves as the catalyst for the right mix of matter energy and space-time events
to create whatever it is that we desire one pointed intention is that quality of
attention that is unbending in its fixity of purpose one pointed intention
means to hold your attention to the outcome that’s intended with such
unbending purpose that you absolutely refuse to put your attention on
obstacles there is a total and complete exclusion of all obstacles and if you
have life centered present moment awareness then the imaginary obstacles
which are more than 90% of perceived obstacles disintegrate and
appear the remaining five to ten percent of perceived obstacles can be transmuted
into opportunities through intention when you learn to harness the power of
intention you can create anything you desire intention generates its own power
when you follow the following five steps for fulfilling your desires number one
slip into the gap this means to center yourself in that silent space between
thoughts to go into the silence that level of beings which is your essential
state number two established in that state of being release your intentions
and desires number three remain in the state of self offer this means remain
established in the awareness of your true self your spirit your connection to
the field of pure potentiality this means not looking at yourself through
the eyes of the world therefore not being influenced by the opinions and
criticism of others a very helpful way to maintain that state of self referral
is also to keep your desires to yourself to keep them your own private secret not
share them with anyone else unless they share the exact same desires that you
have and are closely bonded with you number four relinquish your attachment
to the outcome and number five let the universe handle
the details intention when released in the gap has infinite organizing power
trust that infinite organizing power of intention to orchestrate all the details
for you remember that your true nature is that of pure spirit carry the
consciousness of your spirit wherever you go gently release your desires and
the universe will handle the details for you applying the law of intention and desire
I will put the law of intention and desire into effect by making a
commitment to take the following steps 1 I will make a list of all my desires I
will carry this list with me wherever I go I shall look at this list before I go
into my silence and meditation I will look at it before I go to sleep at night
I will look at it when I wake up in the morning
2 I will release this list of my desires and surrender it to the womb of creation
trusting that when things don’t seem to go my way there is a reason and that the
cosmic plan has designs for me much grander than even those that I have
conceived 3 today I will remain established in self-referral I will not
be influenced by the opinions and criticisms of the world I will not look
at myself through the eyes of others the sixth spiritual law of success is
the law of detachment the law of detachment says that in order to acquire
anything in the physical universe you have to relinquish your attachment to it
this doesn’t mean you give up the intention to create your desire you
don’t give up the intention and you don’t give up the desire you give up
your attachment to the result this is a very powerful thing to do you still have
the intention one-pointed intention one-pointed desire but you relinquish
your attachment to the result and the moment you relinquish your attachment to
the result combining one-pointed intention with detachment at the same
time you will have that which you desire the source of wealth of abundance of
anything in the world is the self it is the consciousness that knows how to
fulfill a need everything else is a symbol cars and houses and banknotes and
clothes and airplanes these are symbols symbols are transitory they come and go
chasing symbols is like settling for the map instead of the territory it creates
anxiety its ends up making you feel Hollow and empty inside because you
exchange yourself for the symbols of yourself anything that exists in the
physical universe can be acquired by relinquishing your attachment to it
attachment comes from poverty consciousness because attachment is
always two symbols detachment is synonymous with wealth consciousness
because with detachment there is freedom to create then the symbols of wealth are
created spontaneously and effortlessly only from detached involvement can one
have joy and laughter without detachment we are prisoners of helplessness
hopelessness mundane needs trivial concerns quiet death
operation and seriousness the distinctive features of everyday
mediocre existence and poverty consciousness people are constantly
seeking security even attachment to money is the sign of insecurity and you
will find that the seeking of security is actually a very ephemeral thing you
might say when I have X million dollars then I’ll be secure then I’ll be
financially independent and I will retire then I will do all the things I
really want to do but it never happens never happens the need for security is
based on not knowing the true self those who seek security chase it for a
lifetime without ever finding it it remains elusive and ephemeral because
security can never come from money alone attachment to money will always create
insecurity no matter how much one you have in the bank in fact some of the
people who have the most money are the most insecure true wealth consciousness
is the ability to have anything you want anytime you want
and with least effort to be grounded in this experience you have to be grounded
in the wisdom of uncertainty in this uncertainty you will find freedom to
create anything you want security and certainty are a result of rigid
attachment to the known however the known is nothing other than the prison
of past conditioning uncertainty on the other hand is the fertile ground of pure
creativity and freedom uncertainty is the same thing as stepping into the
unknown in every moment of our existence the unknown is the field of all
possibilities ever fresh ever new always open to the creation of new
manifestations without uncertainty and the unknown life is just the stale
repetition of outworn memories you become the
victim of the past and your tormentor today is yourself left over from
yesterday the search for security is an illusion in Vedic wisdom the answer to
this whole search is what we call the wisdom of insecurity or the wisdom of
uncertainty which means that the search for security is actually an attachment
to the known and what’s the known the known is our past it’s just the prison
of past conditioning there’s no evolution in that absolutely no
evolution at all and when there is no evolution there is stagnation entropy
disorder and decay relinquish your attachment to the known step into the
unknown and you will step into the field of all possibilities in your willingness
to step into the unknown you will have the wisdom of uncertainty factored in
and this means that in every moment of your life you will have excitement
adventure mystery you will experience the fun of life and have an exuberance
and zest for living every day you can look for the excitement of what may
occur in that field of all possibilities when you experience uncertainty you are
on the right path so don’t give it up you don’t need to have any idea of what
you’ll be doing next week or next year because if you have a very clear idea of
what’s going to happen and you get rigidly attached to it then you shut out
a whole range of possibilities one characteristic of the field of all
possibilities is infinite correlation the field can orchestrate an infinity of
space-time events to bring about the outcome that is intended but when you
are attached your intention gets locked into a rigid mindset and you lose the
fluidity the creativity and the spontaneity inherent in the field when
you get attached you freeze your desire from that infinite fluidity and
flexibility in to a rigid framework which interferes
with the whole process of creation now this doesn’t take away from the law of
intention from goal-setting it’s simply saying that you want to go in that
direction you have this goal but between point A and point B there’s an infinity
of possibilities with uncertainty factor then you might change direction in any
moment if you find a higher ideal or if you find something more exciting and
you’re also less likely to force solutions on problems which enables you
to stay alert to opportunities that’s the whole process of evolution you don’t
force solutions when you force Solutions and problems you only create new
problems but when you put your attention on the uncertainty and you witness the
uncertainty while you expectantly wait for the solution to emerge out of the
chaos and the confusion that what emerges is something very fabulous
something very exciting this state of alertness your preparedness in the
present in the field of uncertainty meets with your goal and your intention
and allows you to seize the opportunity what’s the opportunity it’s contained
within every problem that you have in your life every single problem that you
have in your life is the seed of an opportunity for some greater benefit in
your life and when you have that perception you open up to a whole range
of possibilities and this keeps the mystery the Wonder the excitement the
adventure alive you can look upon every problem that you have in your life as an
opportunity for some greater benefit you stay alert to opportunities by being
grounded in the wisdom of uncertainty and when your preparedness meets
opportunity the solution will spontaneously appear what comes out of
that is called good luck good luck is nothing but prepare
an opportunity coming together when the two are mixed together with an alert
witnessing of the chaos a solution emerges that will be of evolutionary
benefit to you and to all those that you come into contact with this then is the
perfect recipe for success and it is based on the law of detachment applying
the law of detachment I will put the law of detachment into effect by making a
commitment to take the following steps one today I will commit myself to
detachment I will allow myself and those around me
the freedom to be as they are I will not rigidly impose my idea of how things
should be I will not force solutions on problems
thereby creating new problems I will participate in everything with detached
involvement – today I will factor an uncertainty as an essential ingredient
of my experience in my willingness to accept uncertainty solutions will
spontaneously emerge out of the problem out of the confusion disorder and chaos
the more uncertain things seem to be the more secure I will feel because
uncertainty is my path to freedom through the wisdom of insecurity I will
find my security 3 I will step into the field of all possibilities and
anticipate the excitement that can occur when I remain open to an infinity of
choices when I step into the field of all possibilities I will experience all
the fun adventure and mystery of life and the seventh spiritual law of success
is the law of Dharma spelt D H AR ma Mahama is a Sanskrit word that means
purpose in life the law of the Hamas says that we have taken manifestation in
physical form to fulfill a purpose the field of pure potentiality is divinity
in its essence and the divine takes human form to fulfill a purpose
according to this law you have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it
there is something that you can do better than anyone else in the whole
world and for every unique talent and unique expression of that talent there
are also unique needs when these needs are matched with the creative expression
of your talent that is the spark that creates affluence expressing your
talents to fulfill needs creates unlimited wealth and abundance if you
could start children right from the beginning with this thought you’d see
the effect it has on their lives in fact I did this with my own children again
and again I told them there was a reason why they were here and they had to find
out what that reason was for themselves from the age of four years they heard
this when they were about the same age I also taught them to meditate and I told
them I never ever want you to worry about making a living in fact I can tell
you that if you’re unable to make a living when you grow up I’ll provide for
you so don’t worry about that I don’t want you to focus on doing well in
school I don’t want you to focus on getting the best grades or going to the
best colleges what I really want you to focus on is to ask yourself how you can
serve humanity and to ask yourself what are your unique talents because you have
a unique talent that no one else has and you have a special way of expressing
that talent and no one else has it they ended up of course going to the
best schools and getting the best grades and even in college they’re unique in
that they’re making a lot of money right now because they are focused on what
they are here to give this then is the law of Dharma there are three components
to the law of thermo the first component says that each of us is here to discover
our true self to find out on our own that our true self is spiritual that
essentially we are spiritual beings that have taken manifestation in physical
form we are not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences it’s
the other way around with spiritual beings that have occasional human
experiences that’s the first fulfillment of the law of Dharma and each of us is
here to discover our higher self or our spiritual self we must find out for our
own self that inside us is a god or goddess an embryo that wants to be born
so that we can express our divinity the second component of the law of Dharma is
to express your unique talents the law of Dharma says that every human being
that is alive has a unique talent you have a talent that is unique in its
expression so unique that there’s no one else alive on this planet that has that
talent or that expression of that talent which means that there’s one thing you
can do and one way of doing it that is better than anyone else on this entire
planet and when you’re doing that one thing you lose track of time when you’re
expressing that one unique talent that you possess or maybe more than one
unique talent in many cases the expression of that talent takes you into
timeless awareness and you lose track of time the third component of the law of
Dharma is service to humanity to serve your fellow human beings and to ask
yourself the questions how can I help how can I help all those that
come into contact with when you combine the ability to express your unique
talent with service to humanity then you make full use of the law of Dharma
and coupled with the experience of your own spirituality the field of pure
potentiality there is no way you will not have access to unlimited abundance
because that is the real way abundance is achieved this is not a temporary
abundance it’s permanent because of your unique talent your way of expressing it
and your service and dedication to your fellow human beings through asking the
question how can I help instead of asking the question what’s in it for me
the question what’s in it for me is the internal dialogue of the ego asking how
can I help is the internal dialogue of the Spirit why because the Spirit is
that domain of your awareness where you experience your universality and so in
just shifting your internal dialogue from what’s in it for me to how can I
help you automatically go beyond the ego into the domain of your spirit while
meditation is the most useful way of entering the domain of the Spirit
shifting your internal dialogue to how can I help will also access the spirit
that domain of your awareness where you experience your universality if you want
to make maximum use of the law of Dharma then you have to make several
commitments the first commitment is this I’m going to seek my higher self which
is beyond my ego and I’m going to do that through spiritual practice secondly
I’m going to discover my unique talents and finding my unique talents I’m going
to enjoy myself because the process of enjoyment occurs when I go into timeless
awareness that’s when I’m in a state of bliss and the third commitment is I’m
going to ask myself how I am best suited to serve humanity I’m going to answer
that question and then put it into practice I’m going to use my you
Niq talents to serve the needs of my fellow human beings I will match them to
my desire to help and serve others and you literally sit down and make a list
of the answers to these two questions ask yourself if money was of no concern
and you had all the time and money in the world what would you do if you would
still do what you currently do then you are in Dharma because you have passion
for what you do you’re expressing your unique talents then ask yourself how am
i best suited to serve humanity answer that question and put it into practice
discover your divinity find your unique talents serve humanity with it and you
can generate all the wealth that you want when your creative expressions
match the needs of a fellow humans then wealth spontaneously flows from the
unmanifest into the manifest from the realm of the Spirit to the world of form applying the law of Dharma or purpose in
life I will put the law of Dharma into effect by making a commitment to take
the following steps one I will spend time in silence every day to get in
touch with my her spiritual self by experiencing my higher self I will
experience the law of pure potentiality I will set aside 30 minutes in the
morning and 30 minutes in the evening I need not do anything I will just listen
and the world will freely offer itself to me – I will make a list of my unique
talents then I will list three things that I love to do while expressing my
talents when i expressed my unique talents and used them in the service of
humanity I lose track of time and create abundance in my life as well as the
lives of others 3 I will ask myself daily how can I serve and how can I help
the answers to these questions will allow me to help and
my fellow human beings with love the seven spiritual laws of success are
powerful principles that will enable you to attain self mastery if you put your
attention on these laws and practice the steps outlined above you will see that
you can manifest anything you want all the affluence money and success that you
want you will also see that your life becomes more joyful and abundant in
everywhere for these laws are also the spiritual laws of life that make living
worthwhile there is a natural sequence for the
application of these laws in your daily life that may help you to remember them
the law of pure potentiality is experienced through silence through
meditation through non judgment through communion with nature but it is
activated by the law of giving and the principle here is to learn to give that
which you see that’s how you activate the law of pure potentiality
if you seek affluence give it if you seek money give money if you seek love
appreciation and affection then learn to give love appreciation and affection
through your actions in the law of giving you activate your Karma you
create good karma and good karma makes everything easy you notice that you
don’t have to expend a lot of effort to fulfill your desires which automatically
leads to an understanding of the law of least effort and when everything is easy
and effortless and your desires keep getting fulfilled you spontaneously
begin to understand the law of intention and desire this then makes it easy for
you to practice the law of detachment finally as you begin to understand all
the above laws you begin to focus on your true purpose in life which leads to
the law of thermo and through the use of this law by expressing your unique
talents and fulfilling the needs of your fellow humans you will create unlimited
wealth abundance and joy in your life we are travelers on a cosmic journey
Stardust swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity life
is eternal but the expressions of life are ephemeral momentary transit Gotham
abuta the founder of Buddhism once said this
existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds to watch the births and
deaths of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance a lifetime is like
a flash of lightning in the sky rushing by like a torrent down a steep mountain
we have stopped for a moment to encounter each other to meet to love to
share this is a precious moment but it is transient it is a little parenthesis
in eternity if we share with caring lightheartedness and love we will create
abundance and joy for each other and then this moment will have been
