 Pure Potentiality

  • I will meditate twice a day for thirty minutes if possible. Preferably when I wake up and before sleeping.
  • Being in silence everyday
  • Communing with nature everyday
  • Everyday wake up and say “Today I will be non-judgmental.” Continually to review to see if I am being judgmental.

The law of giving and receiving

  • I will give everyone I come into contact with a gift, whether it be physical or non-physical. Could be a compliment, a prayer, a blessing or a gift.
  • I will gratefully receive the gifts of nature and gifts from others such as compliments or physical gifts.
  • I will keep wealth circulating by giving and receiving. Each time I meet someone I will silently wish them happiness, joy and laughter.

The law of karma

  • I will witness the choices that I make in each moment and bring them into my consciousness.
  • What are the consequences of the choice for me and others? Will it bring fulfillment to me and those affected?
  • I will ask my heart and notice whether I feel comfortable or uncomfortable.

The law of least effort

  • Today I will accept people and events as they occur. This moment is perfect. Things are as they should be. Today I will not struggle. I will accept things as they are, not as I wish them to be.
  • I will not blame anyone (including me) or anything else for that happens. Every problem is an opportunity in disguise.
  • I relinquish the need to defend my point of view. Defending my point ofview wastes a lot of energy. I am open to other points of view.

The law of intention and desire

  • I will make a list of all my desires. I will carry it with me wherever I go. I will look at it before I meditate.
  • I release my list to the universe and avoiding thinking about how they will manifest.
  • I accept the present as it is.

The law of detachment

  • I commit to detachment. I will allow myself and those around me to be as they are. I will not force solutions to problems. I will participate in everything with detached involvement.
  • I realize that uncertainty is an essential ingredient in my life. Solutions spontaneously emerge when I accept uncertainty.
  • I step in the field of possibilities and anticipate the excitement that occurs when I am open to possibilities.

The law of dharma or purpose in life

  • I lovingly nurture the Divine within me.
  • I make a list of my unique talents and what I love to do while expressing my talents. When I express my talents and use them to serve humanity, I lose track of time and create abundance in my life and the lives of others.
  • I ask myself “How can I serve?” and “How can I help?”

  1. What a great summary. I have actually read this book and forget the messages. This summary was a really good reminder in a brief way. It has helped me remember to do all the little daily rituals, which have such a big impact. Thank you for sharing!
