Success can mean many things but I'm sure we can all agree it includes good health, energy, enthusiasm, fulfilling relationships, freedom, and overall sense of wellbeing and peace of mind.
Deepak Chopra offers seven spiritual principles that can easily be applied to create success in all areas of your life. He offers a very powerful perspective of how to attract abundance into one's life by understanding the natural laws.
1. The Law of Pure Potentiality:
This law states that pure consciousness is the key to creation. When we align to true self we naturally attract what we need and want into our life. The way to access a true state of being is through meditation, silence and non-judgment. By adding meditation to your daily routine you can begin manifesting and creating what you want.
2. The Law of Giving:
The Universe operates under a dynamic exchange of giving and receiving. Therefore, if we give what we seek abundance will find its way into your life. The easiest way to get what you want is to help others get what they want. Think about giving someone in your life a gift and make sure you gratefully receive all gifts.
3. The Law of Karma:
Every action returns a like force of energy back to us. Therefore what we sow we reap. When we bring happiness and success to others then that is what we receive in return. When making a choice decide whether it will bring joy to you and others or the opposite. Obviously chose the joyful path.
4. The Law of Least Effort:
Nature's intelligence functions with effortless ease and harmony. When we harness that type of harmony we create success and good fortune with ease. Less is more is a profound statement. Do less and accomplish more is nature's intelligence. It is a non-linear, intuitive and holistic way to approach life and as a result there is no waste of energy. In order to follow the principles of this law we must learn acceptance. Accept what is right now and move on. We must also be responsible for what is by having a creative response to the situation at hand. We must also relinquish the need to defend or justify our position and by doing this we receive an abundant amount of energy that otherwise would be wasted.
5. The Law of Intention & Desire:
Any time we have an intention or desire there is an inherent dynamic for fulfillment. The Universe in its natural state is to move energy and information. When we give our attention and intention to something we energize and transform it. When we use our intention to benefit mankind we are naturally in alignment with the spiritual laws of success. The key is to set the intention and then let go so you remain in the present. Accept the present and intend for the future. This is the way to manifesting anything you desire. Let the Universe handle all the details and relinquish your attachment to the outcome.
6. The Law of Detachment:
In order to manifest anything in the physical world we must let go of our attachment to it. Don't misunderstand this law. It doesn't mean we give up our intention or desire it simply means we give up being attached to the outcome or result. Attachment is fear based. It is an insecurity because we want to know the outcome. When we come from this perspective we are not in alignment of true self. When we detach from the situation there is freedom to create. Uncertainty breeds creativity and freedom and opens up the door to infinite possibilities.
7. The Law of Dharma or Life Purpose:
We all have a purpose in life, a unique gift to share with others. When we blend this unique gift to help others we experience a state of bliss. The Law of Dharma is all about taking what we have manifested into physical form to fulfill a purpose. What are your unique talents and how can you use them to serve others. This is the key behind everything.
The first step to figure this out is to discover true self, and realize that our true Self is spiritual. Next, we must express our talents and then serve humanity with them. Forget about what's in it for you but rather how your talents can help others.
When we commit to discovering our spiritual essence and let go of the ego-self our purpose in life will be revealed to us. Enjoy the process as this means awareness is present.
