The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success Book Summary/Notes

Law of pure potentiality

In our essential state we are pure consciousness, a field of all possibilities and infinite creativity.

Also called the law of unity because life is the unity of one all pervasive spirit.

The experience of the self referral means that our internal reference point is our own spirit, not the objects of our experience.

Object referral means being influenced by objects outside of the self including situations, circumstances, people and things where we are constantly seeking the approval of others. Our thinking and behaviors are always in anticipation of a response. It is therefore fear-based.

It is ran by your ego, always seeking approval and to control life.

The self is free of these things, immune to criticism, unfearful of any challenge and feels beneath no one, humble, superior to no one, because everyone is the same self and spirit in disguises.

To access the law of potentiality you must take breaks to be silent. To meditate, to simply be, to not be on digital media.

Stillness is the first requirement for manifesting your desires, as it lies your connection to the field of pure potentiality that can orchestrate an infinity of details for you.

Only in stillness can you throw a stone (your intention) into the sea of the mind and watch It ripple across the underlying ground of universal consciousness, which connects everything with everything else.

If your mind is turbulent It wouldn’t matter your intentions, they won’t be made aware or manifested.

Another way to access pure potentiality is through practice of non judgement. When you judge you constantly evaluate as right wrong good or bad, label, analyze, etc creating internal turbulence.

This turbulence constricts the flow of energy between you and the field of pure potentiality, squeezing the gap between thoughts and your connection to infinite creativity.

The gap is your connection to the field of pure potentiality, it is a state of pure awareness, that silent space between thoughts, that inner stillness that connects you to true power.

“Today I shall judge nothing that occurs.”

By spending time in nature you gain the sense of unity with all of life. connecting with nature’s intelligence gives you access to pure potentiality.

Law of giving

Everything in life is dynamic and in a constant exchange of giving and receiving, this is how the universes energy flows as well as through us.

When we give unconditionally, the energy behind It increases many times over.

What you want you can receive if you practice doing it for others. If you want joy, love, appreciation, then give It to others and you’ll receive It back.

Give that which you seek!

Always give to people that you encounter, It doesn’t have to be material. It can be a compliment, a silent prayer, showing care, affection, love. Or It can be a flower or a note. As you give, the more confidence you’ll gain in the miraculous effects of the law, leading to receiving more and ability to give more.

Law of karma

Action and the consequence of the action, cause and effect. What you sow is what you reap.

Maximize karmic law by becoming consciously aware of the choices we make in every moment.

We make many choices unconsciously based on our conditioning. We’ve created automatic and predictable reflexes (behaviors) that are triggered by people and circumstances.

We can learn to control these, they are still choices!

Ask yourself “what are the consequences of this choice that I making?”

And “will this choice that I’m making now bring happiness to me and to those around me?”

Spontaneous right action – taking the appropriate action at the right moment that nourishes you and everyone else influenced by the action.

Our hearts can help guide us in our decision making. When you put your focus towards it, It always gives you the right response.

“At times it may not even seem rational but the heart has a computing ability that is far more accurate and far more precise than anything within the limits of rational thought.”

Law of least effort

Based on the fact that nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease and abandoned carefreeness. No resistance.

When motivated by love, least effort is expended and your energy multiples.

Focusing on your ego, seeking power and control over others or seeking approval from others wastes your energy.

Focusing on your spirit where you’re immune to criticism and unfearful of any challenge, you can harness the power of love and use energy creatively.

Three components to law of least effort

Acceptance – understanding and accepting the present moment and anything that happens in It as is, not as I wish they were.

Responsibility – ability to have a creative response to present situations as they are. To take the moment and transform It to a better situation or thing. Every problem is an opportunity in disguise. Not blaming anyone or anything for my situation (including myself).

Defenselessness – relinquishing the need to convince or persuade others of your point of view. Remaining open to all points of view and not being rigidly attached to any one of them. Gaining access to tons of energy as a result.

Law of intention and desire

Everything is energy and information.

Humans are capable of being consciously aware of this through the nervous system. We can change the energy and information of our own body, and influence our environment to cause things to manifest in it.

Two qualities inherent in consciousness are attention and intention.

Attention energizes, intention transforms.

Whatever you put your attention on will grow stronger in your life. Intention triggers transformation of energy and information, organizing its own fulfillment.

With enough intent, you can command and fulfill your dreams and desires.

Intent is desire without attachment to the outcome.

Desire alone is weak because in most people it’s attention with attachment.

Relinquish your attachment to the outcome/a specific result and live in the wisdom of uncertainty. Enjoy every moment in the journey of life, even if you don’t know the outcome.

Law of detachment

In order to acquire anything in the physical universe you have to relinquish your attachment to It (not your intention or desire to create It).

It’s the unquestioning belief in the power of your true self.

Attachment is based on fear and insecurity.

The source of wealth, of abundance or of anything in the physical world is the self; it is the consciousness that knows how to fill every need.

Everything else (cars, houses, etc) are symbols, which always come and go. Chasing symbols is like settling for the map instead of the territory, it creates anxiety and makes you feel empty inside because you exchange your self for the symbols of your self.

Detachment provides the freedom to create.

Without It we are prisoners to mediocre existence and poverty consciousness (helpless, mundane needs, trivial concerns, seriousness).

In order to have what you want, to have the freedom to create, you must be grounded in the wisdom of uncertainty. This is true wealth consciousness.

Chasing security is a waste of time, it’s an illusion when it’s tied to money.

The search for security and certainty is an attachment to the known, which is our past conditioning.

Uncertainty is the fertile ground of pure creativity and freedom, stepping into the unknown which is the field of all possibilities, always open to the creation of new manifestations.

Without uncertainty and the unknown life is just a stale repetition of outworn memories. You become the victim of the past and your tormentor today is your self left over from yesterday.

Every single problem that you have in your life is the seed of an opportunity for some greater benefit.

Having a goal is good, but allowing uncertainty to play its role enables you access to all possibilities and infinite choices.

Law of dharma (purpose in life)

Deepak told his children from age 4 to never worry about making a living or focusing on doing well in school. He told them to focus on asking themselves how they can serve humanity and what their unique talents are, because they have a unique talent that no one else has and they have a special way of expressing that talent that no one else can.

Three components

1 – Each of us is here to discover our true self, that we are spiritual beings that have taken manifestation in physical form. There is a god in embryo inside of us waiting to be born to express our divinity.

We are not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences, we are spiritual beings that have occasional human experiences.

2 – express our unique talents. We all have unique talents, or a unique expression of those talents. Something that when you do It you lose track of time, go into timeless awareness.

3 – service to humanity. Ask yourself how can I help all those that I came into contact with? How can I serve?

If money was no concern and I had all the time and money in the world what would I do?

How am I best suited to serve humanity?
