7 spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra

Remember our last post Dreams of a Better Future was about Trauma Bonds? Imagine this is a continuation of that post!

I was having this brilliant conversation with a friend about romantic entanglements. You are suddenly a part of a triangle and you don’t know which corner of the triangle you are. Not even sure if you are the corner that hits the floor every time the triangle falls. Once you recognize the messy entanglement you’re in, you are suddenly certain that you’re getting out of it.

Aware it will take time and energy, you brace yourself for the months ahead.

Take a minute to imagine you have an ex who won’t let go? You have been on and off for ages and you know it isn’t going anywhere. Have you ever thought that you can just relax into it, and let nature take its cause? Communicate clearly what you want – of course – and then allow time to help you get out of unhealthy entanglements?

Well, here goes the 7 spiritual Laws of Success
  1. The Law of Pure Potentiality
  2. The Law of Giving
  3. The Law of Karma
  4. The Law of Least Effort
  5. The Law of Intention and Desire
  6. The Law of Detachment
  7. The Law of Dharma
1. The Law of Pure Potentiality is pure consciousness

Mindfulness. Being in the now. Seeking expression from the un-manifest to the manifest. In our true Self, we align with the power that manifests everything in nature.

2. The Law of Giving

Give first before you receive & whatever energy you give will come back to you. Even a genuine smile is a gift. Keep wealth circulating by giving and receiving care, affection, appreciation and love. Learn to gratefully receive the same.

3. The Law of Karma

Karma simply means “action”. Karma is equivalent to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. In essence, everything we do creates a corresponding energy that comes back to us in some form or another.

4. The Law of Least Effort

Learn to harness the natural forces of harmony, joy, & love. Accept people, situations, and events as they occur. Take responsibility for your situation and for all events seen as problems. Relinquish the need to defend your point of view.

5. The Law of Intention and Desire

Every intention & desire has the mechanics for its own fulfillment. Refer to the law of attraction. Make a list of intentions & desires & let nature & time fulfill them. Trust that when things don’t seem to go your way, there is a reason.

6. The Law of Detachment

The Law of Attachment says that 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 give up your attachment to the result. Allow yourself and others the freedom to be who they are. Do not force solutions. Allow solutions to spontaneously emerge. Uncertainty is essential, & uncertainty is your path to freedom.

The Law of Detachment has its opposite in Attachment. Apparently, attachment comes from a poverty consciousness, because we always attach to symbols. It’s based on fear and insecurity. The need for security is based on not knowing the true Self.

7. The Law of Dharma or Purpose in Life

Everyone has a purpose in life. A unique gift or special talent to give to others. When we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal.

In conclusion, relinquish your attachment to the known. Step into the unknown and you will step into the field of all possibilities. By stepping into the unknown, you unleash the wisdom of uncertainty that lies dormant within you. This means that in every moment of yr life, you’ll have excitement, adventure, mystery etc

Dreams of a Better Future

Have you ever bonded with someone too quick? Almost too quick? And discovered a few weeks or months later that it was not the best idea to bond with this person at all? That there was too much pain there? Or anger?

Whatever it was, it made you regret bonding too quick with that person?

I did that not so long ago. It was the intellectual conversation that caught my attention first. The easy banter. A needy presence and we love being needed.

Then there was the grief just under the surface.

I connect easily with people who are grieving, or have lost someone close and not properly dealt with the loss yet. Perhaps I understand grief well because I grieved for my father and it was the heaviest grief I have ever felt.

I connect easily with people who have been abandoned as children. Whether it was physical abandonment or emotional abandonment. I don’t quite know why I connect with abandonment so well. It could be an abandonment I haven’t identified as abandonment yet.

Something I lacked in childhood that I want to heal in myself?

The challenge with Trauma bonds is that you eventually want to break them. It may take weeks, months or years, but eventually, you cannot sustain them emotionally. They are too intense. Too damaging. They are all consuming leaving no energy for other relationships – not even the relationship with yourself.

Trauma bonds are also hard to to break. You get too immersed in them, almost drowning. Ever felt pity for someone you know you cannot live with? Guilt that you needed something more? Or you felt anger and desperation and started acting out of character? Just to make them leave you so you didn’t have to leave first?

As for me and my trauma bond not so long ago – it didn’t last too long. One morning, I woke up and stopped communicating with the person. I had warned them that it wasn’t a bond I wanted to keep in my life.

That didn’t make it easier to break.

To have the life we are dreaming about, we have to be brave enough to do what we have to do to keep ourselves safe, healthy, and growing.

Sometimes, we have to be brutal. Other times, we have to be kind. Often, we have to be decisive and discerning.

2020 seems like the year to make these difficult decisions. As nature cleanses itself, we get a chance to cleanse ourselves and our surroundings.
