It is always nice to find someone out there that thinks the same way you do, however express it much better. In "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success", by Deepak Chopra, he describes the fundamental principles of the universe and how we as part of the universe can be successful. Throughout the book he has to slow sown and explain how he is using many of the words as we usually give them different meaning. Then there are a few times that he has to turn to Indian words instead of making up new ones. Many say he is based in Ancient Vedic concepts yet if you did not know of them you would relies these are concepts of the now. He hits the deck running with this book so if you have not been exposed to these concepts before you may need to re-read the book several times. And this book was not meant to jus be read you need to practice the concepts to understand them. This book is based on "Creating Affluence" and does not have the size to contain a lot of background reasoning for drawing conclusions. Your practice off the laws will do that for you. The concepts are too simple to give the titles any meaning however here they are. 1. The Law of Pure The source of all creation is pure consciousness... 2. The Law of Giving The universe operates through dynamic exchange... 3. The Law of "Karma" or Cause and Effect Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind... 4. The Law of Least Effort Nature's intelligence functions with effortless ease... 5. The Law of Intention and Desire Inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment... 6. The law of Detachment In detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty... 7. The law of "Dharma" or Purpose in life Everyone has a purpose in life... On a personal note it is so eerie that many of the things he talks about especially in the seventh law was the way me ad my siblings were raised. However I was 20 years old before cutting throw my first Veda Be sure to also listen to the audio to here how he emphasizes.
