Wisdom From Books

The first spiritual law of success!

Posted on: July 18, 2010

We might have read many ideas on ‘How to achieve success’ and related stuff. However, there are a few books which also deal with ‘spiritual’ laws of attaining success. We will take up the first spiritual law of success from Deepak Chopra’s international best seller: ‘The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success’. Author says that the book can also be called : “The Seven Spiritual laws of Life” because those seven laws can be observed in the ‘nature’ around us and those laws are used by the nature to create every thing that is in the material existence. The first spiritual law of success is the law of:

Pure potentiality……

To put simply, this means that deep inside, we all have ‘pure’ consciousness. Every one, each of us has a ‘pure self’ within us.

This leads to an interesting point: Happiness comes from within.

We are happy either due to outside circumstances i.e. we get a car, we get a promotion, we get married, we get rich etc. or we are happy from within. If we have good thoughts, we can have satisfaction from inside regardless of our circumstances. This means that we have two types of happiness:

1. Due to outside ‘objects’ i.e. a person is ‘object-referral’ or

2. Happiness from within (whether we have outside objects or not) i.e. a person is ‘self-referral’

When we need external items to be happy, when we need approval of others, when we need power to be happy, we are not in harmony with the first law of success i.e. happiness is from within our pure self. Do we want to be happy from within? Then we need to follow the first law of pure potentiality i.e. discover our own self.

How to apply the first law in our daily lives? Here is what author has suggested:

“I will put the Law of Pure Potentiality into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:
(1) I will get in touch with the field of pure potentiality by taking time each day to be silent, to just Be. I will also sit alone in silent meditation at least twice a day for approximately thirty minutes in the morning and thirty minutes in the evening.
(2) I will take time each day to commune with nature and to silently witness the intelligence within every living thing. I will sit silently and watch a sunset, or listen to the sound of the ocean or a stream, or simply smell the scent of a flower. In the ecstasy of my own silence, and by communing with nature, I will enjoy the throb of ages, the
field of pure potentiality and unbounded creativity.
(3) 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.”

Your thoughts on the above? Is the above ‘easy stuff’?

The idea of silent meditation and commune with nature is unique yet joyous too. It is said that “There are times when silence has the loudest voice”.

i realy like the seven spirital laws.

The success of indian citizens come from the mindset of being in line with the nature, happy with life even though they don’t have enough money because of lack of jobs and poor city conditions.
