Make 2018 the Year of Giving – Deepak Chopra’s 7 Spiritual Laws

We loved partnering with Deepak Chopra on this post and now for our #31DaysofGiving. Join our giving movement today and help us make the world a better place.

There’s nothing like the month of January to encourage us to reflect on what matters in life and the changes we want to make this year.  For those of us in the North, we are in the heart of winter and anxiously awaiting the first sign of spring. This is the time for us to hunker down, set some goals and plot out the next 11 months.

A tangible and relatable resource our team turns to when needing inspiration and reflection is The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success written by Deepak Chopra. The seven laws are based on natural laws that govern all of creation. Deepak’s perspective is that once we understand our true nature and learn to live in harmony with natural law, a sense of well-being, good health, fulfilling relationships, energy and enthusiasm for life, and material abundance will spring forth easily and effortlessly.

We would be hard pressed to find anything better than his sentiments. If you haven’t read this book, order it, read it, reflect, and then read it again. This is a book you can turn to time and time again when you find yourself drifting off your path and need to get back on track.

To recap Deepak’s inspiring words, here are the seven laws.

The Law of Pure Potentiality

The Law of Giving

The Law of Karma

The Law of Least Effort

The Law of Intention and Desire

The Law of Detachment

The Law of Dharma or Purpose in Life

The Law of Giving

As you can guess, we have a strong admiration for Law #2: The Law of Giving.

We often speak about the benefits of giving, there are so many!

Deepak puts it best:

“Because your body and your mind and the universe are in constant and dynamic exchange, stopping the circulation of energy is like stopping the flow of blood. Whenever blood stops flowing, it begins to clot, to coagulate, to stagnate. That is why you must give and receive in order to keep wealth and affluence – or anything you want in life – circulating in your life.”

In fact, the word currency comes from the latin word ‘currere’ which means ‘to run’ or flow. If we as a society stop the circulation of money, we stop the circulation back into our lives as well. Money is a form of life energy and therefore we must circulate (or give) to receive. In other words, to get you must give. It’s that simple.  

The Law of Giving can impact any area of your life and will help you achieve your goals:

  • If you want joy, give joy to others
  • If you want love, learn to give love
  • If you want attention and appreciation, learn to give attention and appreciation
  • If you want material affluence, help others become materially affluent

Here’s a great resource from the Chopra Center to put the law of giving into practice.
