A client of mine recently reminded me of this tiny book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, published in 1994. I loved it at that time, but it eventually found its way onto one of my bookshelves. I dusted it off (yes, my bookshelves get dusty) and decided to use this book and these laws for one month, to see what might occur in my life, how my perspective and/or life might be different. And is this another tool to offer my clients.....
The practice is something like this: Every day during the week I read one of the Seven Laws in the morning. It takes approximately 10 minutes. I then try and remember it during my day -- which is an accomplishment in itself -- and also apply it. Mondays I read the First Law, Tuesday, the second and so forth.
Today's Law, a Friday, is the Fifth Law: The Law of Intention and Desire.
Deepak says: "....when we introduce an intention in the fertile ground of pure potentiality [aka Quantum Universe], we put this infinite organizing power [aka Quantum Universe] to work for us." I am fascinated by the Quantum Universe, which will probably show up here in my blog over time. And his short essay on Intention and Desire is a lovely blend of the scientific and the spiritual. If you are interested in attention, intention, desire, attachment, present moment awareness, and the like -- this chapter, a mere 14 small pages long, is packed with information and insight.
I have put my intentions out into that Field today. That in itself feels so good. At the same time, I will (try) and release my attachment to the outcome and let the Universe handle the details. I will speak more on this topic in the future. But feel this is enough for my first experiment with blogging. Namaste!
