In my quest to find to success, my very philosophical friend, Light Skin Vegan, suggested the book: The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra. So I took the easy route out. I downloaded the audiobook. Conveniently, I listen to Chopra’s sultry Indian accent while stuck in Atlanta traffic on the way to work.
Seven Habits of Spiritual Success
The Law of Pure Potentiality – Take time to be silent, to just BE.
The Law of Giving – Keep wealth circulating by giving and receiving care, affection, appreciation and love.
The Law of Karma – Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind.
The Law of Least Effort – Accept people, situations, and events as they occur.
The Law of Intention and Desire – Inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment.
The Law of Detachment – Allow yourself and others the freedom to be who they are.
The Law of Dharma – Seek your higher Self. Discover your unique talents.
If we take the time to implement a few of the spiritual laws in everyday life, I believe it would help build better relationships with others or at least give you the understanding of why some relationships are the way that they are. We release the desire for someone to act in a certain way or be a certain person that they might not necessarily be. Once we really accept someone for who they are at this present moment, we could possibly dodge unnecessary pain . You just have to be willing to accept the truth in front of you.
I use these rainbow sugar cookies as my gift giving cookies in accordance with the law of giving. One batch is more than enough to spread the love. The food coloring turns boring tradition sugar cookies into festive cookies of fun. I always have a positive response when I share these colorful cookies with friends and family. I make a batch every once and a while to send with my mom at work to share with her co workers. Try it and share it!
