While reading spiritual and ancient books such as Hindu Vedas and Buddhist sutras, you will come across a common thread of laws of the universe. In Sanskrit, it is referred to as ‘Prakriti niyam’ which is translated as – Law of nature. These laws are mentioned in the ancient Egypt and Greek teachings as well. There are many books published focusing on different laws from the various period. Once you understand these Universal laws, you will attain a deeper understanding of your existence and its nature. When I read these laws, they remind me to be centered and to bring back focus of my energy into the positive zone. Your aim is to master each of the seven Universal Laws:
The Law of Vibration
Everything particle in this universe vibrates, and nothing rests and this fact is scientifically proven. Vibrations of the same frequency resonate with each other therefore like attracts like energy. When I say energy, it includes everything even your thoughts. There is a saying in Buddhism, ‘what you think you become’. And the idea behind this saying is, that our thoughts attract its vibration match. Remember this quote by beloved Rumi, ‘What you seek is seeking you’. Life is a vibration, focus on what you want so you can attract all the possible resources which can assist you in your journey. This is also called a thought power; so utilize it in thinking positive. If you want to read more about this law, you can read a written book in a simple language ‘The Secret’
The Law of Cause and Effect
Let me put this law in a few simple words; every cause has an effect, and every effect has a cause. According to the law of Cause and Effect, every effect you see in the physical world has a very specific cause which has its origin in the mental world. To become a master of your destiny, you need to become a master of your mind. There is a phrase in the Guru Granth Sahib – Sikhism holy book, “Mann Jeete Jagg Jeet” can be translated as “You can conquer the world if you can conquer your mind.” Buddhist teachings emphasize on regulating mind and thoughts to manifest the benefits of the law of cause and effect. All thoughts are creative, therefore consistently think and act on what you desire to be effective at getting it.
On a side note, now you can understand that how important it is to know what you want to do, to focus your energy.
The Law of Relativity
To understand something, we need it to relate it to something. Therefore, the point of view is determined by what observer is relating it to nothing is what it is until you relate it to something. The nature, value, or quality of something can only be measured in relation to another object. We see what we want to see in others. Others are a mere reflection of our thoughts. As there is a famous English saying, ‘Beauty is in the eye of a be-holder.’
The Law of Polarity
Everything exists in a dual and has an opposite, for example – light and dark, love and hate, up and down, south and north, etc. The law of polarity means that the things that seem opposites of each other are in fact two extremes of the same thing. Heat and cold may appear to be opposites but simply are varying degrees of the same thing. According to the art of polarization, you can transform your thoughts from hate to love, from fear to courage by consciously raising your vibrations. Remember, there are two sides of coin metaphor. If your desired outcome does not come, keep flipping the coin.
The Law of Rhythm
Everything has a natural cycle; it is like a pendulum swing. The tides go in and back out, night follows day, and life regenerates itself. The only constant thing is change. We all have good times and bad times, but nothing stays the same. Just like waves of the ocean, there are high and low points in our lives as well. So if you are going through some tough times, remember this African proverb ‘every night has its dawn.’
The Law of Gestation
The Law of Gestation is about understanding time and growth. It takes time to create things. It takes time for living organisms to mature and grow. We can give them great growing conditions to accelerate their growth, but we can’t grow a tree in a day, and a baby can’t develop properly in just a couple of months. All things have a beginning, and they grow as more energy is added to it. Similarly, thoughts are like seeds planted in our fertile minds that grow into the physical experience if we continue to nourish them.
The Law of Transmutation
Everything is a creative energy. The law of transmutation is based on the idea of ‘The Universal Mind”. A simple way of explaining this law is that everything we see and experience in our physical world has its origin in the mental realm. Your reality is a manifestation of your mind. You can use creative power to move that energy into results in your life.
These 7 Natural Laws of the Universe are working with you and for you. Take charge of your life by focusing on what you want, align your energy in the right direction and you will get what you want. Love and Sunshine. I hope you are Feeling Buddhaful today!
