Guides for Success
In these two guides Deepak Chopra lays a course for creating our abundance and
maintaining long-term fulfillment.
THE SEVEN SPIRITUAL LAWS OF SUCCESS
I. THE LAW OF PURE POTENTIALITY
The source of all creation is pure consciousness...pure potentiality seeking
expression from the un-manifest to the manifest.
II. THE LAW OF GIVING
The universe operates through dynamic exchange...giving and receiving are
different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe.
III. THE LAW OF "KARMA" OR CAUSE AND EFFECT
Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind...what
we sow is what we reap.
IV. THE LAW OF LEAST EFFORT
Nature's intelligence functions with effortless ease...with “carefreeness”,
harmony, and love.
V. THE LAW OF INTENTION AND DESIRE
Inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its
fulfillment...intention and desire in the field of pure potentiality having
infinite organizing power.
VI. THE LAW OF DETACHMENT
In detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty...in the wisdom of uncertainty lies
freedom from our past, from the unknown, which is the prison of past
VII. THE LAW OF "DHARMA" OR PURPOSE IN LIFE
Everyone has a purpose in life...a unique gift or special talent to give to
DIFFERENT GOD RESPONSES,
The key to long-term fulfillment is how you respond to life’s many challenges.
Expand your repertoire of responses and you will discover that by shifting your
God response, you can influence the outcome of any situation or circumstance in
This response enables us to survive in the face of danger. It is linked to a God who wants to protect us, like a parent who looks out for the safety of a small child. We turn to this God when we perceive that our health or well being is in jeopardy.
Beyond mere survival, we instinctively strive to exercise our power in the world: to compete, to achieve and to put our stamp on things. This is the God we invoke to champion the 'I', the 'me', and the 'mine', anticipating Divine assistance in fulfilling our personal needs, wants and desires.
III. RESTFUL AWARENESS
Rest and activity alternate in every part of the brain. This is the God of peace, who enables us to find a calm center in the midst of outward chaos. We turn to this God when we feel the outer word is swallowing us up in its endless turmoil.
The God of the intuitive response supports our inner knowingness. When we respond intuitively we respond from the inside out. This is the God of understanding, acceptance and forgiveness. This response provides us insight into the deeper significance of life events.
The human brain has the remarkable ability to invent new things and discover new facts. This creative ability appears to come from nowhere--the unknown simply gives rise to a new thought. We call this inspiration and its mirror is a Creator who made the whole world from nothingness. We turn to the God of the creative response when we are seeking innovative solutions to life's challenges.
The God of the visionary response is the God of light. The human nervous system is capable of accessing this response, which brings transformation, clarity, wonder, magic and healing. This is the God of miracles who reveals the higher states of consciousness available to human beings.
The human nervous system is born from a single fertilized cell that has no brain functions in it, only a speck of life. Despite the vast complexity of the nervous system that derived from this primordial cell, the brain senses its origins and essence as that speck of pure life energy. To match it, there is a God of pure being, one who doesn't think but just is. When we elicit the sacred God response, we see all of life as the cosmic play of forces, directed by a transcendent Divine intelligence.
