For many, the concept of Success it is linked to money, to material power. We have been educated because we believe that in order to be successful we must work tirelessly, with unyielding persistence and intense ambition, and our success seems to have value only in the approval of others.
To prove that we are successful you must wear designer clothes, have a pretty girl, successful profession, A good place, a good car, etc … to build a path of suffering, far from a real feeling of personal development, of emotional well-being and of returning to our own desires.
What are the laws that govern free spirits?
Imagine an executive driven by an attempt to succeed and be successful in their profession, who are so eager to achieve it, when he succeeds he realizes that he has lost everything including his own wife and children. As a result, the only respect he receives comes from his subordinates, the very ones who don’t want to lose their jobs. He has money, power, and is in one of the highest places in his business, but the loneliness and emotional fatigue makes him wonder if it was worth going this far.
How? ‘Or’ What Deepak chopra observed, so much disproportionate effort is unnecessary and even counterproductive to succeed. We must not forget that success is a subjective experience and has to do with well-being in different areas of our life. In his book “The 7 Spiritual Laws of Success”, the author reviews the rules and principles necessary for success.
After all, the most important thing is not to be successful at a certain thing that you do, but to achieve a sense of overall success. Success is what leads us to have a fulfilling and meaningful life, a busy life..
1. Law of pure potentiality
This law is based on the fact that we are all essentially pure consciousness. In other words, being conscious is pure potentiality; a state of infinite creativity and potentiality. When you discover your natural essence and connect with who you really are, that same knowledge is the ability to achieve true success, because you are in eternal success and time is running out in your favor, not against you.
This law was also known as law of unityBecause despite the complexity of life, especially today in the globalized world in which we live, “being fully aware” is necessary to preserve the spirit.
This is why, at the present time, the practice of mindfulness or mindfulness has been so successful for this state of consciousness and calm helps to self-regulate behaviors and to get to know each other better, In addition to creating an environment conducive to personal well-being. Mindfulness is a conscious and intentional way to tune in to what is happening in and around us, and allows us to unmask automatisms and promote holistic development.
2. Law of giving and receiving
The state of flux in life it is nothing more than the harmonious interaction of all the elements that structure our existence. Giving and receiving maintains the richness and influx of interpersonal relationships. Although many believe that constant giving is a symptom of weakness, giving and receiving has significant psychological effects: it reduces stress, improves self-esteem, etc.
Helping others without expecting anything in return brings more gains than you might think: a study by the UK Mental Health Foundation has shown that being altruistic is good for our health. But if we have also received, it provides us with a balance that keeps us alive. Happiness is closely linked to healthy interpersonal relationships, and this applies to all areas of our life, even with co-workers.
3. Law of karma (or cause and effect)
the Karma is the action and the consequence of the action. The Law of Karma is important, because it warns us that if we do something bad (or that is seen as bad), it will have negative consequences for us. Maybe we’ll get through this one day, but we’ll probably get something similar at some point in our lives.
Karma positions us, warns us, and allows us to choose. This tells us that what happens to us is a consequence of our actions and allows us to reflect to avoid making the same mistakes in the future.. Therefore, karma is not a punishment, it is an opportunity to grow.
4. Law of least effort
You’ve probably heard that “less is more”, and you’ve heard of law of least effort. This law comes to represent exactly that. This is the principle of minimal action and non-resistance. It is therefore the principle of love and harmony.
This law does not mean that we have to be still and passive about life, but that when actions are motivated by love (towards others and towards oneself), they do not require so much effort. For example, when we do things reluctantly, it will be very difficult for us to move. But when we do things with passion, that is, with love for what we love, we enter into a state of flow or “flow”.
This law has three fundamental principles:
- acceptance: When we treat facts and life with acceptance of ourselves and others, we feel relieved. This moment is as it should be, as the entire universe is as it should be. For example, when we feel frustrated with someone or something, we don’t feel frustrated or upset with a person or situation, but rather with the feelings we have about that person or situation.
- responsibility: All problems are opportunities for growth and development. When our state of readiness meets the opportunity, the solution will appear spontaneously, effortlessly.
- powerlessness: If we embrace ‘the here and now’, that is, the present, we become part of it and connect emotionally, as we release the terrible burdens of defensiveness, resentment, and lust. hypersensitivity, favoring the flow state. When we possess the delicate combination of acceptance, responsibility and helplessness, we will experience this Flow for a lifetime, with effortless predisposition.

5. Law of intention and desire
This law states that, by being aware and having the ability to adapt, we can influence the environment, we can create our own future. Desiring and having an intention is the engine that keeps us moving. But desire and intention are not the only condition for success, but Chopra explains that in addition to these, we must comply with the “law of pure consciousness” and the “law of disaffection” (which will be explained below in the next point).
Further, he states that “how the future is created based on this intention, it is essential to start from the concept that time is the movement of thought. In other words, the backward thinking is an interpretation of abstract forces, I remember, of memory, while the future is a projection of abstract forces. ”So, the intention and the desire must be in the here and now, Because “only the present, which is consciousness, is real and eternal. (…) The past and the future are born in the imagination”.
6. Law of disaffection
the ReleaseAlthough it may sound like a synonym for coldness, it is a very fashionable concept in personal development because it allows you to live with serenity and emotional stability. It’s a very important concept today, because most people are too discouraged even about material things. It is not easy to look inwards when culture prompts us to constantly look outwards, to compare ourselves, to be more efficient, more consumers, etc. In the midst of so much information, we cling to old certainties to feel safe, impossible to describe reality as it is.

Disaffection does not mean that emotions cannot be felt, it’s about accepting them and observing them from another point of view that is much more adaptive. It is about putting them in perspective, that is to say to move away from things a little to try to be more objective and realistic.
As psychologist Jonathan García-Allen explains in the article “Personal development: 5 reasons for self-reflection”, published in Psychology and the mind: the environment and with ourselves and meditate on our reality. In the individual dimension, our beliefs, habits and actions are always motivated by our emotions, so it is essential to understand and accept them. In the short, medium and long term is totally uncertain, but whatever happens, we can modulate (at worst) our experience with the emotion of expectation, control, cynicism, superficiality … but we are also able to improve ourselves – this is if it comes from the emotion of respecting self, gratitude, trust, sincerity and tranquility “
7. Law of Dharma, or purpose in life
According to this law, we all have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it. There is something in each of us that we can do better than the others, because for every unique talent and for every unique expression of that talent there are also unique needs. Expressing our talents to meet needs creates unlimited wealth and abundance.
the law of dharma it has three elements:
- Each of us is there to discover our yourself higher or your spiritual self, And we have to find out for ourselves.
- The human being has one unique talent. Each of us has such a unique talent in its expression that no other individual has it or expresses it that way. When we express this unique talent, we are in Flow State.
- Each of us must put this talent at the service of humanity to help each other. When we combine the ability to express our unique talent with service to humanity, we make full use of the law of Dharma.
