Today we continue with the 12 Universal Laws also known as the 12 Laws of Nature.
4. The Law of Correspondence:
This law states that the laws of physics explain the physical world; that is energy, light vibration and motion. Each of these have their corresponding law in the etheric or universe. Everything is connected to everything else, "as above, so below".
So if you start your day with a positive thought on the inside then you reflect this to the outside and to the world around you. It affects your relationships and the corresponding people around you in a positive way. The same can be said about the negative internal rumblings we have, the more we focus on them internally the more we create these blocks or stoppers in our path externally.
This quote helps me remember to observe my negative rumblings and aim to change them to positive ones:
"We can start our day with the happiness of a smile and the aspiration to dedicate ourselves to the path of love and understanding.
Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand-new hours are before me.
I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion."
- Thich Nhat Hanh
5. Law of Cause and Effect (Karma)
This law states that every action (including our thoughts) has a reaction or a consequence. Nothing happens by chance or outside the Universal Laws, everything is a divine symphony of acton and reaction.
We might not always feel like it's a divine symphony when we are experiencing difficult challenges or setbacks but this too is part of the cycle.
" Without genuine mental peace internally, it is unrealistic to hope that we can
achieve genuine world peace externally. This is completely clear. Thus it is appropriate to devote ourselves to achieving inner peace."
- Dalai Lama
To become aware of our thoughts is often our greatest challenge but as we become more conscious of them, we have the power to remain more positive and present in the moment.
One way of catching our thoughts before they become the crazy hamster on the wheel is to observe the thought and ask, what are you afraid of?
Let's take guilt for example, it does not serve us in anyway yet we hold on to it and allow it to grow within us and create suffering.
David Hawkins in his book - The Eye of the I says " To make progress and to change takes more effort than feeling guilty"
The challenge though has greater rewards of contentment.
6. Law of Compensation
This law is an extension of the law of cause and effect. This law starts firstly with you, when you love yourself and give equally to yourself then you are practicing the law of compensation. When you give with your heart and help others then that help come back to you.
“You have no idea how hard I’ve looked for a gift to bring You. Nothing seemed right. What’s the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or water to the Ocean. Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient. It’s no good giving my heart and my soul because You already have these. So, I have brought You a mirror. Look at Yourself and remember me.”
As we look at ourselves and reflect on these 3 laws, don't forget to look out for the next 3 laws in 2 weeks time.
