THE INTUITIVE SELF
- Eight Universal Principles For Creating a Kinder World
The Buddha is reputed to have said, "We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we create the world."
Well I've learnt, from experience, that there's nothing truer. With the right mindset, anyone can do just about anything in this world - and that includes creating peace.
Over the years, I've run workshops around this concept and successful attendees can attest to this fact as well.
So over the next few weeks, I'd like to share eight Universal Principles that anyone can incorporate into their daily lives to create a kinder world for themselves, and by extension, for others.
Universal Principles #1: Nothing is scarce, and everyone is infinite
Universal Principles #2: The universe is designed to fulfill all our needs.
Universal Principles #3: Ask and you will receive.
Whatever our beliefs, this rule applies to all. Ask God, Allah, Tian, Vishnu, Eloah, Nsi, Wakan Tanka, Great Spirit, the Universe.
Universal Principles #4: Trust yourself, trust your universe.
Distrust creates such a cloud of uncertainty in and around us, that the mind becomes restless. Opportunities can be lost, and important messages scrambled. Learn to trust and doors will open.
Universal Principles #5: What you focus on becomes your reality
Feel the power in that sentence. Hold that power. It's yours, your birthright. Choose what experiences you wish to subject your mind and your body to. Everyday. Deliberately.
Universal Principles #6: All life reflects back to you what you need to know
Allow answers to come from any source: a book you're reading, a dream, the soft whisper of your inner voice. Listen to the words of the wind in the trees; listen to the message in the bark of a dog.
Universal Principle #7: Thought is the force of creation
That means we are all creators. Consciously or unconsciously, we create our physical appearances, the form our lives take, and the experiences we have. Therefore, Direct thoughts carefully and precisely. As we think, so we create.
Universal Principle # 8: Energy transmutes into like energy
I'm smiling, you automatically smile; I'm hateful, and suddenly you feel drained. In order to stay balanced and in control, we must master the flow of energy between us and the world by consciously maintaining the energy field of our choice around ourselves.
Follow the Eight Universal Principles laid out above and you will carry peace in the core of your being wherever you go, fellow seekers!
If there is light in the soul,
There will be beauty in the person.
If there is beauty in the person,
There will be harmony in the house.
If there is harmony in the house,
There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world.
- Chinese Proverb
