The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
Following the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success has made me the person that I am today. The laws that we have followed have been the Law of Pure Potentiality, the Law of Giving, the Law of Karma or Cause and Effect, the Law of Least Effort, the Law of Intention and Desire, the Law of Detachment, and the Law of Dharma or Purpose in Life. These laws have taught me that success is not a destination it is a journey. They have taught me that true success is the unfolding of the divinity within us. And following these steps has helped me to find success with in myself.
Applying the first step in the Law of Pure Potentiality was very difficult for me because I live on campus. It was very difficult for me to meditate once a day, let alone twice a day. The only time I was able to, was in the morning when the rest of my roommates were sleeping. I wake up 15 minutes early, wash my face so that I do not fall back to sleep and then I go back into my room and sit on my bed to try and meditate. This works like 4 times a week because I am usually too tired and fall back to sleep. The days that I can stay awake and meditate I feel much happier with my self. It usually clears my head and makes it seem like I have no worries. Everyday I follow the second step of the Law of Pure Potentiality. I commune with nature. Most days I just sit in the green and watch the leaves blow around, I usually pick out one particular leaf and watch where it goes. I follow the leaf on its journey, it is really amazing. Once a week I try to go to Verona Park and stand on the bridge over the pond and watch the water flow and the geese and ducks swim. My time in the park and in the green really mellows me out because I see how free the animals and the plants and the water live and realize all my worries in the long run are not really important. It makes me see how simple life really is. The third step in the Law of Pure Potentiality was the most difficult to obey, it still is extremely difficult for me. All my life for some reason I have been judgmental, I always made comments on others clothes or their demeanor. Not always in a negative way, usually I am just stating things that I have noticed. It is like second nature to me especially because my family and friends are the same way. After learning about this law and discussing it I noticed how much I actually do it. Everyday I catch myself going to make comments. I usually I stop myself before I speak, I do not always though. It is very difficult for me, it upsets me a lot when I am judgmental. I have gotten much better than I was. I notice how I am not judging where in the past I normally would.
The Law of Giving steps are not as difficult for me to follow as the Law of Pure Potentiality. The first step is the hardest for me. I do not always remember to bring a gift wherever I go, and sometimes I feel like it is inappropriate, that others will think that I am weird. ...
