I resonated with this article sometime in 2011 I think. It encapsulated what I was going thru spiritually at the time. It was during this time my spiritual identity began to solidify and I embraced my TRUTH. Everything around me shifted, within and without. Those of you who are reading this, know exactly what I’m talking about. This article was a huge help during that transition. It is my hope that this information will resonate and assist you in your journey as well.
THE 7 SPIRITUAL LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE
1. The Law of 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.
We are pure consciousness. Pure consciousness is pure potentiality. It is the field of all possibilities and infinite creativity. Pure consciousness is our spiritual essence. This is our essential nature. Our essential nature is one of pure potentiality. It is in knowing oneself that 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.
If you want to enjoy the benefits of the field of pure potentiality, and you want to make full use of creativity which is inherent in pure consciousness, then you have to access it. One way to access the field is through the daily practice of silence, meditation, and non-judgment. Spending time in nature will also give you access to the qualities inherent in the field: infinite creativity, freedom, and bliss.
2. The Law of Giving and Receiving
Your body, mind and the universe are in constant motion, always changing. Stopping this circulation of energy is like stopping the flow of blood. It will clot and stagnate. You must always give and receive in order to keep energy circulating. Remember money is energy also. The more you give the more you will receive. The best way to put this into practice is to make a decision that anytime you come into contact with someone you give them something. Now it doesn’t have to be money, or anything material. Gifts of caring, attention, affection, appreciation, love, a compliment, or a prayer, are more precious and more powerful.
3. The Law of Karma
Every Action has an appropriate Reaction! What you sow is what you reap. Everything that is happening now is a result of choices you made in the past. Unfortunately, alot of the choices we make are done unconsciously so we don’t think of them as choices. However, if we were to slow down and step back and witness the choices, you would be able to have control over those choices, because you would be bringing them into your conscious mind. You will make the choice to effect an outcome in the future. –Cause + Effect = Karma —
4. The Law of Least Effort
The principle of harmony and love. It is a state in which you do less to achieve more. This happens when your actions are motivated purely by love. There are 3 components to the Law of Least Effort:
1 – Acceptance – You make a commitment. You will accept people, places & circumstances as they occur.
2 – Responsibility – Do not blame anybody or anything including yourself for your situation, all problems contain opportunities
3 – Defenselessness – Give up the need to convince or persuade people of your point of view
If you do this you will gain enormous amounts of energy previously wasted.
5. Law of Intent & Desire
Intention is a real power behind desire. Intent alone is powerful, because intent is desire without attachment to the outcome. Desire alone is weak, because desire in most people is intention with attachment. Intent is a desire with strict adherence to all the other laws, but particularly the Law of Detachment.
Intention combined with detachment leads to a life centered, present moment awareness, and when action is performed in present moment awareness, it is most effective. Your intent is for the future, but your attention is in the present, then your intent for the future will manifest, because the future is created in the present. You must accept the present and intend in the future. The future is something you can always create through detached intention, but you should never struggle against the present.
6. The Law of Detachment
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 desire. You give up your attachment to the result.
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. This means that in every moment of your life, you will experience the fun of life – the magic, the celebration, the exhilaration, and the exultation of your own spirit.
Uncertainty, on the other hand, is the fertile ground of pure creativity and freedom. Uncertainty means 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 your self left over from yesterday.
Every day you can look for the excitement of what, may occur in the 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 a complete and rigid 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.
The law of detachment does not interfere with the law of intention and desire – with goal setting. You still have the intention of going in a certain direction, you still have a goal. However, between point A and point B there are infinite possibilities. With uncertainty factored in, you might change direction in any moment if you find a higher ideal, or if you find something more exciting. You are also less likely to force solutions on problems, which enables you to stay alert to opportunities.
7. The Law of Dharma “Purpose in Life”
You have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it. There is also unique needs. When these needs are matched with your unique talent it fulfills a need and creates unlimited wealth and abundance. There are 3 components to the Law of Dharma, Our Purpose in Life:
1. We are here to discover our True Self
2. To Express our Unique Talents
3. To Serve Humanity
The Seven Spiritual Laws are powerful principles that will enable you to attain self-mastery. If you put your attention on these laws and practice the steps, you will see that you can manifest anything you want–all the affluence, money and success you desire. You will also see that your life becomes more joyful and abundant in every way, for these laws are the spiritual laws of life that make living worthwhile.
