“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 star, or a human body can also bring about the fulfillment of our deepest desires.”
Based on Chopra’s book Creating Affluence, he describes the seven fundamental principles of the universe that we can use to bring success into our lives. The first thing you might notice is the book’s seemingly small size. Can such a small book cover in sufficient amount of detail seven principles that provide the “fulfillment of your dreams”? This week we’ll find out.
Chopra’s combining of “spirituality” with success, may not seem a complimentary pair, however this is exactly the premise of the book. We need to realize that becoming successful need not be a struggle of monumental effort but instead, when we surrender ourselves to the laws of the universe, it is a natural outpouring of being in alignment with the Creator…the state of true spirituality.
This reminds me of the passage in the Bible, “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” (Matthew 6:26) All of nature works by effortless power. We are unique in that, of all of God’s creations, we are self-aware. Unfortunately, this self-awareness is what can remove us from this effortless power and inevitably our success.
The seven laws are as follows:
- The Law of Pure Potentiality
- The Law of Giving
- The Law of “Karma” or Cause and Effect
- The Law of Least Effort
- The Law of Intention and Desire
- The Law of Detachment
- The Law of “Dharma” or Purpose in Life
For the next three days (Tuesday through Thursday), I’ll be uncovering these seven laws in detail, and then on Friday I’ll give you my opinions or recommendations.
