Following up on the first post on the LAW OF LEAST EFFORT, we continue diving into allowing our actions to be and feel effortless, without resistance. To achieve all our dreams effortlessly, with great joy. How?
I will put the Law of Least Effort into effect by making a commitment to take the following 3 steps:
1. “I will practice Acceptance. Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. I will know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. I will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete. I accept things as they are this moment, not as I wish they were.”*
2. “Having accepted things as they are, I will take Responsibility for my situation and for all those events I see as problems. I know that taking responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for my situation (and this includes myself). I also know that every problem is an opportunity in disguise, and this alertness to opportunities allows me to take this moment and transform it into a greater benefit.”*
3. “Today my awareness will remain established in Defenselessness. I will relinquish the need to defend my point of view, and I will feel no need to persuade others to accept my point of view. I will remain open to all points of view and not be rigidly attached to any one of them.”*
Being in the present - a benefit of the Law of Least Effort
So much of our day can be spent being defensive, blaming others, and not accepting the moment – creating more resistance, and spending more energy. Anytime we encounter resistance, we can recognize that if we force the situation, the resistance will only increase.
Opening up, not feeling the need to persuade others of our point of view, allows our focus to be in the present, and therefore being more “present” – and be overcome with joy, lightheartedness, and feeling carefree.
The intention to repeat for the Law o Least Effort is: “My actions achieve maximal benefit with least effort.”
Practice Acceptance. Take Responsibility. Be open to all points of view.
The Season of Success series
From end of August to beginning of October Tasty6 will focus on the seven spiritual laws (based on “Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” by Deepak Chopra), a set of seven powerful principles we can use to fulfill our deepest desires with grace and ease. Each day of the week is dedicated to one of the seven spiritual laws, and they are not difficult or mysterious, but easy to understand and apply.
The Season of Success is a 7-week series of blogs on the seven spiritual laws from Deepak Chopra, focusing on one law per week. Join us on this journey of remembering our deepest truth.
Why do we at Tasty6 feel this is important now? We believe in bringing balance to body, mind and spirit through our products, and the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success help all of us do that and much, much more in these challenging times.
With love, your Tasty6 team!
“You are what your deep, driving desire is.
As your desire is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.”
