Week 23 – The Big Breakthrough!
A few years ago I started reading Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. This book has a permanent place on my nightstand.
Those of you who have been following my Journey may recall what I shared in week 19 – that I have been in recovery for over two decades and the cornerstone of this incredible journey has been The Serenity Prayer.
May I share once more these powerful words along with Law of Least Effort?
Follow along and enjoy the ride with me.
God, grant me the serenity to
1. Acceptance accept the things I cannot change
2. Responsibility the courage to change the things I can and
3. Defenselessness the wisdom to know the difference.”
How elegantly Dr. Chopra expands on this Spiritual Law in his writings!
There are many moments in life that appear random. But as I have learned there is nothing random about the order of the Universe. There is the constant, infinite dance around the nucleus of each atom, the moon around our Mother Earth, the planets around our Sun, our solar system around its black hole and so on.
“Everything happens for a reason” sounds cliché. But cliché’s are simply truisms that have been overused to the point of being trite. My personal journey has brought me to this point of understanding. When I live the Law of Least Effort my life is effortless!
The more I use this simple truth in my daily living the more my interactions become effortless. I cannot recall the last time I had a disagreement let alone an argument with anyone, including me. For what sane person would want to argue with themselves?
Who am I to think I can tell the Universe it is wrong? I have learned to accept today.
If today is not as I would like, I have two choices;
I can change what I am doing or change what I am expecting.
But, I cannot change what it is and in that same instant… was.
Why defend that which cannot be changed?
