Deepak Chopra’s second law in his The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, tells us that the Universe is in a constant dynamic exchange, a process of giving and receiving. And because we’re part of the Universe, we’re always giving and receiving too. Our thoughts, words and behavior all offer an energy we share with each other, planet Earth, and the cosmos.
That’s good news!
It reminds us that we have the power to determine our future as individuals and as a species. We do have a say in what happens to us. We can choose our vibration and decide what we create and how we contribute or respond to events, relationships or environments. With practice and awareness, we see that we’re not victims of circumstance or someone or something outside our individual little-ego worlds. We see our connectedness to each other across the street or across the globe.
This practice and awareness takes place in our marketplaces and voting booths, in our school curriculum and internet blogs, in our websites and 24/7 news cycle. We can offer a vibration that lifts the tone of discourse in conflicts and eliminates judgments and labeling. We can take a breath and a moment before we choose what we give, so what is received can be moderated as well. If we remember nothing happens “to” us and instead it happens “with” us, our choices can direct that “dynamic exchange” in the direction of peace and unity.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said “Life is a perpetual instruction in cause and effect.” With the right approach, this is good news indeed.
