The Seven Laws
Law 1: 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 field of pure potentiality is accessed through meditation, silence, nature, and the practice of non-judgment. Practicing this law develops the competencies of creativity, learning in the moment, and dealing with ambiguity.
Law 2: 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. This flow of energy is accessed through giving and receiving with an open heart, and allowing free and easy circulation of energy through you. Practicing this law develops the competencies of listening, compassion, and informing.
Law 3: The Law of "Karma" or Cause & Effect
Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind... what we sow is what we reap. When we choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of our karma is happiness and success. Understanding this law empowers the making of conscious choices. This ability is developed through witnessing one's choices, evaluating its consequences, and listening to one's heart. This law creates the competencies of integrity and trust, ethics and values, and action orientation.
Law 4: The Law of Least Effort
Nature's intelligence functions with effortless ease ... with carefreeness, harmony and love. And when we harness the forces of harmony, joy, and love, we create success and good fortune with effortless ease. We access this ability by developing the qualities of acceptance, responsibility, and defenselessness. In the workplace, these manifest as the competencies of perspective, patience, and self-development.
Law 5: 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. We learn to manifest our intentions by determining and listing them, releasing them to the universe, and practicing present moment awareness. Practicing this law develops the competencies of managing vision and purpose, planning and perseverance.
Law 6: 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. Through this law, we access possibilities in our lives by participating in everything with detached involvement, accepting uncertainty, and stepping into the field of all possibilities. These practices develop the competencies of composure, dealing with paradox, and decision quality.
Law 7: 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. The path to discovering one's unique talent and purpose lies through connecting with the higher self, discovering one's talents, and serving others. This practice develops the workplace competencies of self-knowledge, career ambition as a spiritual path, and work/life balance.
