I came across an article by soulful-writer, Craig Lock, that outlined some basic laws of life. I found it very inspiring and profound, yet refreshing in its simplicity; things that should be common sense that we humans tend to forget or simply refuse to accept as truth. Here’s a taste of what he had to say:
Law of ATTRACTION: When you are well grounded in your life purpose, have clarity for what you desire most, and are focused on your specific needs, the Universe (God/Life Force/Infinite Spirit) will come to your aid. People who spend time each day getting clear on what it is that they want, always will be able to get what they want.
Law of CONNECTION: I believe every ‘body’ on this planet is connected in the spiritual realm. We are all spiritual beings on an earthly existence. Because we humans have the power of intellectualization, rationality and especially in the immense power of choices – to act, to elevate our thinking and so choose our level of consciousness, which will determine our ultimate destinies.
Law of SOWING AND REAPING: In more modern everyday language, this may also be known as the Law of Cause and Effect (as postulated by the Greek philosopher, Socrates). First you must give, and then you will receive. The farmer plants the seed and then reaps the rich harvest.
Law of DUALITY (or CONTRASTS): There is a flip side or opposite of everything. Every negative has a positive and is accentuated by the contrast. For instance, you can only know good if there is evil. Light can only exist with the darkness. Good luck can only exist, if there is such a thing as having experienced bad luck. And to experience success you must know failure. Even severe adversity can have some benefit, if we adopt a positive attitude and grow from the experience.
Law of CYCLES: All events occur in cycles. Professional athletes might refer to the law of cycles as streaks (“hot”). In accepting the law of cycles, we must know how to make the most of the good streaks. And when times are bad, keep your head up and look ahead expectantly to the upcoming reversal of fortune.
Law of EVOLUTION and CHANGE: Everything evolves and changes (as pressures and the sands of life shift over time) – the ebbs and flows of life. So it is up to you to ensure you progress and move ahead; as what were once huge obstacles get, “seemingly miraculously” removed.
Law of CHOICES: The greatest aspect of the human condition, is our freedom: a freedom to make choices in life: regarding where to live, occupation, how we spend our time, our leisure pursuits, who to marry, and so on. Each one of us has absolute control over the multitude of choices we make each day …and our possibilities are unlimited. Stop feeling trapped by your circumstances, as you are not a victim of life. If you are feeling “negatively stuck in the deep brown stuff”, make the decision to change your life and choose a brand new future. Consequently YOU have the power and freedom to control your destiny.
Law of RESPONSIBILITY: You must accept the full outcomes for the various decisions (choices) you make daily.
Law of INERTIA: In physics the law of inertia states that: “An object at rest tends to stay at rest.” This law is true of life as well. Action gets momentum going! The longer you procrastinate on completing that project, the longer you go without acting, the harder it will be to get started.
Law of MOMENTUM: “An object in motion tends to stay in motion.” This second law of physics is again a reality of life. Once you get started, it is easier to keep going and make progress. After the decision has been made, one tiny first step gets the momentum going.
Law of SYNCHRONICITY (otherwise known as “CO-INCIDENCES”): This principle is closely aligned with the Law of Attraction. You are part of the universe, not a separate entity. We humans are all connected to a common humanity. Your actions affect those around you and determine how your life is shaped. It is important to recognize that you are inseparable from the events and situations in your life. When you see your connection to the world around you, you understand the control you have over your destiny.
Law of MANIFESTATION: Life is like a mirror – what you put out, you’ll get back even more. Put out positive energy (vibrations) and you’ll attract positive results. You become what you think about the most. Our thoughts shape our reality; so we need to learn how to SHAPE our thoughts, as the potter moulds the clay. Consequently, as the old saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for – you’ll probably get it!”
Law of EXPECTATION (POSITIVE): Always expect a favorable outcome – the best from your actions. Be an optimist as seeing the glass as “half full” in all your endeavors!
Law of INTENTION (good): Do things in the right “heart and spirit” with a genuine desire (intent) of sharing ideas to help others or to make some small difference in the world …and you can’t go wrong.
Law of PROCESS AND ACTION: Spend more time in planning and setting goals. Then spend quiet times in reflection and contemplation to review and monitor your progress. Manifesting what we want out of life still requires action and planning. Ask, trust, and allow the Universe’s Infinite Wisdom to send you the answers on what to do to attain our deepest desires. BALANCE thought with decision, which leads to ACTION.
Law of BELIEF: BELIEVE in the tremendous power of BELIEF (i.e. certainty): in the form of your thoughts and imagination. Use these incredible mental tools to your advantage through your amazing human mind. Sow positive energy and you’ll reap positive results. If you think your life will be exciting and fulfilling, you will make it a reality.
