Book Summary Of The 7 Spiritual Laws Of Success By Deepak Chopra

This is a very powerful book By Deepak Chopra: The Seven spiritual laws of Success; 1. The law of pure potentiality. 2. The Law of Giving. 3. The law of “karma” or cause and effect. 4. The law of least effort. 5. The law of Intention and Desire. 6. The law of Detachment. 7. The law of “dharma” or purpose in life.

The source of all creation is pure consciousness, pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest.

And when we realize that our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in the universe. In the beginning, there was neither existence nor non-existence, All this world was unmanifest energy. The One breathed, without breath, by Its own power Nothing else was there.  Hymn of Creation, The Rig Veda

The first spiritual law of success is the Law of Pure Potentiality.

This law is based on the fact that we are, in our essential state, pure consciousness. Pure consciousness is pure potentiality; it is the field of all possibilities and infinite creativity. Pure consciousness is our spiritual essence. Being infinite and unbounded is also pure joy. Other attributes of consciousness are pure knowledge, infinite silence, perfect balance, invincibility, simplicity, and bliss. This is our essential nature. Our essential nature is one of pure potentiality. When you discover your essential nature and know who you really are, in that knowing itself is the ability to fulfill any dream you have, because you are the eternal possibility, the immeasurable potential of all that was is, and will be.

The Law of Pure Potentiality could also be called the Law of Unity because underlying the infinite diversity of life is the unity of one all-pervasive spirit.

There is no separation between you and this field of energy. The field of pure potentiality is your own Self. And the more you experience your true nature, the closer you are to the field of pure potentiality. The experience of the Self, or “self-referral,” means that our internal reference point is our own spirit, and not the objects of our experience. The opposite of self-referral is object-referral. In object-referral we are always influenced by objects outside the Self, which include situations, circumstances, people, and things. In object-referral we are constantly seeking the approval of others.

Our thinking and our behavior are always in anticipation of a response.

It is therefore fear-based. In object-referral we also feel an intense need to control things. We feel an intense need for external power. The need for approval, the need to control things, and the need for external power are needs that are based on fear. This kind of power is not the power of pure potentiality, or the power of the Self, or real power. When we experience the power of the Self, fear is absent, there is no compulsion to control, and no struggle for approval or external power.

In object-referral, your internal reference point is your ego.

The ego, however, is not who you really are. The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants to control, and it is sustained by power because it lives in fear. Your true Self, which is your spirit, your soul, is completely free of those things. It is immune to criticism, it is unfearful of any challenge, and it feels beneath no one. And yet, it is also humble and feels superior to no one, because it recognizes that everyone else is the same Self, the same spirit in different disguises.

That’s the essential difference between object-referral and self-referral. In self-referral, you experience your true being, which is unfearful of any challenge, has to respect for all people, and feels beneath no one.

Self-power is therefore true power.

Power based on object-referral, however, is false power. Being ego-based power, it lasts only as long as the object of reference is there. If you have a certain title if you’re the president of the country or the chairman of a corporation or if you have a lot of money, the power you enjoy goes with the title, with the job, with the money. Ego-based power will only last as long as those things last. As soon as the title, the job, the money go away, so does the power.

Self-power, on the other hand, is permanent, because it is based on the knowledge of the Self.

And there are certain characteristics of self-power. It draws people to you, and it also draws things that you want to you. It magnetizes people, situations, and circumstances to support their desires.

This is also called support from the laws of nature. It is the support of divinity; it is the support that comes from being in the state of grace.

Your power is such that you enjoy a bond with people, and people enjoy a bond with you. Your power is that of bonding a bonding that comes from true love.
How can we apply the Law of Pure Potentiality, the field of all possibilities, to our lives? If you want to enjoy the benefits of the field of pure potentiality, if you want to make full use of the creativity which is inherent in pure consciousness, then you have to have access to it.

One way to access the field is through the daily practice of silence, meditation, and non-judgment.

Spending time in nature will also give you access to the qualities inherent in the field: infinite creativity, freedom, and bliss. Practicing silence means committing to take a certain amount of time to simply Be. Experiencing silence means periodically withdrawing from the activity of speech. It also means periodically withdrawing from such activities as watching television, listening to the radio, or reading a book. If you never allow yourself to experience silence, this creates turbulence in your internal dialogue.

Set aside a little time every once in a while to experience silence.

Or simply commit to maintaining silence for a certain period each day. You could do it for two hours, or if that seems a lot, do it for a one-hour period. And every once in a while experience silence for an extended period of time, such as a full day, or two days, or even a whole week.

What happens when you go into this experience of silence?

Initially, your internal dialogue becomes even more turbulent. You feel an intense need to say things. I’’ve known people who go absolutely crazy the first day or two when they commit themselves to an extended period of silence.

A sense of urgency and anxiety suddenly comes over them.

But as they stay with the experience, their internal dialogue begins to quieten. And soon the silence becomes profound. This is because after a while the mind gives up; it realizes there is no point in going around and around if you — the Self, the spirit, the choice-maker — are not going to speak, period. Then, as the internal dialogue quietens, you begin to experience the stillness of the field of pure potentiality.

Practicing silence periodically as it is convenient for you is one way to experience the Law of Pure Potentiality.

Spending time each day in meditation is another. Ideally, you should meditate for at least thirty minutes in the morning, and thirty minutes in the evening. Through meditation, you will learn to experience the field of pure silence and pure awareness. In that field of pure silence is the field of infinite correlation, the field of infinite organizing power, the ultimate ground of creation where everything is inseparably connected with everything else.

A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams by Deepak Chopra

The Law of Pure Potentiality

The source of all creation is pure consciousness … pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest. And when we realize that our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in the universe.

The Law of Giving

The universe operates through dynamic exchange …giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the Universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.

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. And when we choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of our karma is happiness and success.

The Law of Least Effort

Nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease… with carefulness, harmony, and love. And when we harness the forces of harmony, joy, and love, we create success and good fortune with effortless ease.

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 have infinite organizing power. And when we introduce an intention in the fertile ground of pure potentiality, we put this infinite organizing power to work for us.

The Law of Detachment

In detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty … in the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past, from the known, which is the prison of past conditioning. And in our willingness to step into the unknown, the field of all possibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.

The law of “Dharma” or Purpose In Life

Everyone has a purpose in life a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.
