While reading spiritual and ancient books such as Hindu Vedas and Buddhist sutras, we 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 ancient Egypt and Greek teachings as well. There are many books published focusing on different laws from various periods. Once we understand these Universal laws, we will attain a deeper understanding of our existence and its nature. When I read these laws, they remind me to be centered and to bring back the focus of my energy into the positive zone.
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 power, 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 we want so we can attract all the possible resources which can assist our journey. This is also called a thought power, so utilize it in thinking positively.
The Law of Cause and Effect
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 our destiny, we need to become a master of our mind. There is a phrase in the Guru Granth Sahib, “Mann Jeete Jagg Jeet” can be translated as “You can conquer the world if you can conquer your mind.” All thoughts are creative, therefore consistently think and act on what we desire to be effective at getting it.
The Law of Relativity
To understand something, we need it to relate it to something. Therefore, the point of view is determined by what the observer is relating it to nothing is what it is until we connect 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 two extremes of the same thing. Heat and cold may appear to be opposites but only are varying degrees of the same thing. According to the art of polarization, we can transform our thoughts from hate to love, from fear to courage by consciously raising our vibrations. Remember, there are two sides to the coin metaphor. If our desired outcome is not there, let’s 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. If someone is going through a tough time, remind them 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 high 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 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. Our reality is a manifestation of our minds. We can use creative power to move that energy into results in our lives.
These 7 Natural Laws of the Universe are working with us and for us. By taking charge of our lives and focusing on what we want, let’s align our energy in the right direction, and we will get what we want. Love and Sunshine.
