Master Key Week 24: The Mystery
“True success … is the unfolding of the divinity within us. … When we begin to experience our life as the miraculous expression of divinity – not occasionally, but all the time – then we will know the true meaning of success.” Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
Back in November I received a package from Amazon. Opening it, I was shocked to find a book I hadn’t ordered … The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. I already had a copy, (currently sitting in my daughter’s house), that I purchased almost twenty years ago. I was baffled. What mystical scenario occurred that put this book in my hands at this particular time? Who sent it and why? …. Did the universe just drop it at my door step? If so, for what reason?
I believe everything happens for a reason, so I should have opened the book when I got it in the mail. … But, I did nothing with it until the Sunday webinar a few weeks ago when Mark J and Trish commented on Deepak Chopra and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. What they said motivated me to open the book.
What I found … almost 20 years after reading it the first time … was amazing! The book includes five chapters that deal with things we’ve been studying with the Master Key System … The Laws of Giving, “Karma” or Cause and Effect, Least Effort, Intention and Desire, and “Dharma” or Purpose in Life, plus more.
As I read, three chapters stood out: The Law of Least Effort, The Law of Pure Potentiality, and The Law of Detachment.
The Law of Least Effort
This law uses the principle of least action, no resistance. Deepak tells us to observe nature to see how things are done. “Grass doesn’t try to grow, it just grows. … It is the nature of the sun to shine. … And it is human nature to make our dreams manifest into physical form, easily and effortlessly. … Least effort is expended when your actions are motivated by love, because nature is held together by the energy of love.“ … To apply this law, requires three parts, Acceptance, Responsibility and Defenselessness. … These are just what Mark J had us write on our index cards several weeks ago.
The Law of Pure Potentiality
This law deals with the field of all possibilities and infinite creativity. Deepak says, “the source of all creation is pure consciousness … And when we realize our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in the universe.” … To access this field requires “silence, meditation and non-judgment.” … So, we do what we’ve been doing each day with the sit and “no opinions” … This chapter adds to what Mark J has been teaching us, especially the IMPORTANCE of SILENCE to get in touch with our “essential nature,” … who we really are … and connect with the Universal Mind.
Deepak also writes about the GAP, our “connection to the field of pure potentiality. It is that state of pure awareness, that silent space between thoughts, that inner stillness that connects you to true power.” … I learned about the GAP twenty years ago. Although I understood its importance, I found meditation difficult and sitting in silence uncomfortable. Reading this chapter now … with new eyes and a new mindset … added another level of importance to silence and to being nonjudgmental.
The Law of Detachment
This law says “to acquire anything in the physical universe you have to relinquish your attachment to it.” We don’t give up our desire or the intention to create the desire but we give up our “attachment to the result” which is based on “the unquestioning belief in the power of your true Self.” If we have an “attachment,” that attachment is based on fear and insecurity. … “Relinquish your attachment to the known, step into the unknown and you will step into the field of all possibilities.”
Isn’t this part of what the Hero’s Journey is about?
As I was writing this, I realized I got the answer to one question about this book’s unexpected and unexplained arrival … the “why”. I believe I was meant to read it and read it now, with its wealth of knowledge and wisdom that expands on Master Key concepts and processes. I feel grateful for its arrival, which is still a mystery, but a welcomed one.
Maybe one day I’ll find the answer to my other question: “Who sent this book?” … In the mean time, I think I’m just going to entertain the notion that maybe the universe just dropped it at my door step.
