‘Master’ is an individual who comprehends not only his own  fundamental nature, but also the fine essence of all energies that surround him. He knows his true purpose in life; and can also help others to understand and achieve their potential !

A lot of people live without knowing what life truly is. At times one feels dejected with unfulfilled or under achieved desires. Many even lose hope. Non harmonious relationships break up families all the time.

Most available aids have not helped man in adequate study of his own self. Modern technology is inadequate in curing various diseases.

There are a few elemental questions that everyone needs to ask  oneself. The truth behind where we come from, the mystery of birth, death, human misery and their permanent solution, if any, have to be sought in earnest. Unless a person is bent upon finding the truth about human existence or the facts that govern human subsistence, human relationships or human event formations, he is going to drift through his life aimlessly. He is going to grow without knowing what growing up is. He will go into ‘samsara’ or ‘family life’, without knowing what the value of family life is. He will die without knowing what death is. He will reap failures in personal life without knowing what the causes are. Life is not full of awareness for a normal, average person who does not ask the basic questions. When we pose searching questions to ourselves, we will find all answers.

We owe it to ourselves to be the best we can be. The goal of human life should be constant growth under all circumstances – in the best possible way. This requires sustained effort and willingness to choose the path that leads to an expansion of consciousness. For example if one is a graduate, for further growth, he must aim for
‘Post Graduation’. A ‘Master’ is a person dedicated to the path of self improvement.

We are born on Earth to pursue spirituality and become ‘Masters’. Our purpose is not to suffer or languish as half-baked individuals. The purpose of each and every person born on this Earth is to regale himself/herself with the highest possible Enjoyment, Entertainment
and Enlightenment.

Sri Krishna said in a beautiful shloka :
“Api chedasi, paapebhya sarvebhyaha papakruthamaha – Sarvam jnanaplavenaiva vrujinam santarishyasi.”

It means, “even if you are more sinful than the most
sinful one, yet, all that sin can be washed off, in one raft
of Spiritual Knowledge.”

So, irrespective of profession or position, we can all be happy only if we are Spiritual Masters. Whether we are an engineer, a legislator, a businessman, a teacher, a student, a clerk, a bus-driver, or even a housewife… we can all grow in Spirituality. My purpose is to shake
every person, awaken everyone, into thinking of Mastery, into setting up the personal goal of becoming a Master.

The first step to becoming a Master is to aim for it. It is good to begin early in our lives when flexibility of both body and mind is on our side. Age is of little consequence. Some hear about Mastery in their early childhood itself and achieve it. One such example is
‘Prahlada’. The moment he heard ‘Narada’s’ words, he became a Master. Some people do not have an easy access to education, but they are designed to hear about this and transform overnight. Mummidivaram Bala Yogi was born in a rural area. But when he watched the movie ‘Pothana’, he instantly became a Master.

We can all become Masters by taking to meditation. Our Reality has two aspects. The known- Smaller Reality and the unknown- Greater Reality. The known Smaller Reality is like a pin-head and the unknown Greater Reality is like a big mountain. We delude ourselves as vincible and dwell in ignorance; we think we are incapable of doing things and have small potential. Reality is something else.

This realization dawns with meditation. We have to become Masters of our mind with the ability to still our mind whenever we want. In that stillness of mind, our inner senses get activated and the inner senses begin to throw light on our own invisible ‘Greater Reality’ along with the ‘Cosmic Invisible Reality’. It is then that we understand the grand structure of the Cosmos and our
very own Grand Self. Death of the Puny-Personality- Self follows. This knowledge of our own Grand Self, our Universal and Cosmic Self comes only through meditation, enlightenment and hearing others’ life experiences.

Once we know about our Cosmic Self, we understand that we are everybody and everybody is our self. There is no separation. There is no ‘other’. We exist everywhere as everything, and as everybody. Then begins health, longevity and immortality. Realization of our own Cosmic Self is the target of a would-be Master. For this, out of twenty four hours, we have to earmark an hour for Meditation, an hour for reading the right books, and one hour for spending time with co-meditators, coseekers and masters. This is an on-going process. This process of becoming a Master begins, but never
ends. We should never be ‘devotees’ of anyone or ‘disciples’ of anybody. Our aspiration should be to become Masters ourselves.

Apart from doing meditation, reading right books and seeking right company ‘sajjana sangatya’, we have to do many more things. People who have set their goal to “Be a Master ”, need to take the famous ‘middle path’ of Buddha. It entails fostering of minimum basic needs
and avoidance of unnecessary desires. One needs to cease thinking carelessly or casually. One also needs to stop talking and listening to others indifferently. Only then we would have sufficient time and energy on our hands, to spare for our efforts in becoming Masters.
Many people have become Masters through the efforts of the Pyramid Spiritual Societies Movement.

Becoming a ‘Master’ is certainly a time taking process but it is also a very worthy one. Only you can be your friend. Only you can be your foe. Only you can help yourself. It all happens through practice of meditation; by reading books; and through constant sajjana sangatya. Intensive introspection leads us to realize that others
cannot really help; it is all our own personal effort and responsibility. Jesus Christ said “Seek ye the Kingdom of God. Then, all else will be added unto you”. It is all within. We have to close our eyes and have to observe the breathing that connects life and death, mortality and immortality. One has to do the relevant ‘sadhana’ to become a Master i.e., to open and activate one’s own
“Third Eye,” or the Divya Chakshu. So, we have to open our Divya Chakshu through Meditation, and our Jnana Chakshu through reading right books and being with sajjana sangatya. We become a Master when we become a paragon of both these qualities.

Once we become a Master, life becomes continuous joy and celebration. All ill-health disappears. We become a natural leader of among the people. We are everybody’s friend. We become more efficient in whatever we take up. We achieve whatever we seek.
We should encourage all children to become Masters. We should not dismiss them as ‘kids’. They have taken many births before. An advanced soul could be in a child’s body. We have to treat them as Masters and talk to them of Mastery. We can talk of Mastery even to old people. Nothing is impossible for mankind. Neither childhood nor old age is a barrier; nor the lack of education any hindrance. Every person should be encouraged to become a Master.

Once we become a Master, we end the chain of Births and Deaths. We don’t have to be born again. We may come to earth now and then to teach others, or just to be an example, but our particular course on Earth is over. We get promoted to Higher Worlds. We begin to create our own under-selves. We may even create new worlds,
new planets, newer galaxies depending on our Personal
Energy.

Unless we live like a Master we cannot die like a Master. Unless we die like a Master we cannot break this chain of Reincarnation. So we keep coming back until we become a Master. We have to be born again. We have to die again, any number of times.
Shankaracharya said:
“Punarapi jananam, punarapi maranam punarapi janani
jatareshayanam.”

If one doesn’t pay attention to “Be A Master” that’s his own choice. One would have to bear the consequence and be born again and again. The two routes are crystal clear. One can either postpone spirituality and come back repeatedly, or take up spirituality and make the current lifetime the final one. If we choose to be a
disciple or a devotee, we have to come back yet again. But if we choose to be a Master, this cycle would conclude.

So, be a Master who is a pleasure to see, hear and be with.
Endeavor to be a Master who is one with everybody and
with whom everybody is one !

Six facts of Spiritual Science

Six facts of Spiritual Science

Six facts of Spiritual Science

Sometimes we wonder about what might happen if we have been meditating for a while and are not able to do it any more. Or, whether we would move backwards instead of forwards in our spiritual journey… if we are not able to meditate daily for some reason. Well, we will be relieved to find that there is never any ‘going back ! Everyone is moving ahead in this particular journey no matter at what pace ! There could be a little, so felt, stagnation… but there is no regression what so ever. “So we can be rest assured our growth happens irrespective of what we choose to experience ! But this entire Soul-journey can be better understood and accelerated when we understand the “Six Facts of Spirituality”.

First Fact:
Fact of Consciousness: We are not matter. We are consciousness. We are not just atoms or molecules. We are energy that is pure and ‘aware.’ We are eternal. We are Forever-Being.

Second Fact:
Fact of Incarnation and Reincarnation: As the ‘consciousness’ state ‘involutes’ into matter, we first go through ‘Incarnation’. The primary process of involution (from pure energy and consciousness) is incarnation. Based on our experience and choices, ‘Reincar nation’ follows. T he process of ‘Reincarnation’ is evolution. First we incarnate, and then, more often than not, reincarnate.

Third Fact:
Fact of Law of Karma: “Karma” means “action”. ‘Law of Karma’ is also the ‘Law of Cause and Effect’. Whatever we may choose, act or do in the state of ‘matter’, we have to pay for those deeds in this very state of ‘matter’. Christ has put it well – “As you sow – so shall you reap !”

Fourth Fact:
Fact of Constant Inevitable Progression: Every entity, discarnate or incarnate, always forges ahead. We incarnate into ‘matter’ to experience different things and all these experiences… both positive and negative, add to our progression. The momentum at which we advance will differ from one to the other. Some may even look stagnant in their respective spiritual journies but that is only what appears to be. It is definitely not the truth. The truth is, we are all progressing constantly in our spiritual growth at the rate of our own choosing !

Fifth Fact:
Fact of Possibility of Hastening Progression:
It is definitely possible for us to become candidates for rapid advancement if one choose to act wisely. Everyone is free to ‘hasten’ their progress in their spiritual journey. This is also called as ‘Yoga Siddhanta’.

For example, people make progress without meditation too, but with meditation, they can choose to develop faster. Besides meditation, reading spiritual books and listening to great spiritual masters will help one speed up one’s advancement on this path.

Sixth Fact:
Fact of Infinities: Once we awaken our inner senses with ‘Third Eye’ perceptions, we see “the infinity” all around ourselves. We realize that the essence of the cosmic infinite consciousness lies in everything and everybody. There are infinite beings; there are infinite worlds, infinite desires, infinite goals, infinite actions and also infinite reactions; We have infinite power, energy and potential. We are encapsulated in a neverending creative process. It is amazing to be surrounded by such magnificence. In fact, we are rendered speechless at the enormity of this situation !

Once we become a Master through “yoga siddhanta” (explained above as the fifth fact) and awaken our third eye, one begins to grasp the final sixth fact. This final grand perception is also very humbling. At long last, we comprehend our true significance in the grand scheme of the infinite consciousness and learn to be grateful for every chance that comes across our way as an experience. We stop our petty judgemental nature. We grasp the importance of letting go of our small ‘ego’ and become the true image of the vast, benevolent universal consciousness.

The fifth fact as revealed to spiritual science places the onus of the pace of our journey squarely on our shoulders. So what is it that we want in our own expedition of life? A crawl, a stillness or a quick progress ? The choice is ours !

Life-Zest

Life-Zest

Life-Zest

We are all Gods in theory. We should become Gods in practice. God-hood needs to be practiced in our thoughts, words and deeds. As spiritual science seeps into our regular routines and we practice meditation with dedicated discipline, we become better at imbibing the God-hood meant for all human beings. Our passion in life itself increases in all meaningful ways. We ascend different levels of consciousness to embrace the ensuing spiritual experiences. The basic goal of spirituality is to increase our love of life in more than ordinary ways and enhance our Life-Zest !

The journey to become more joyous has different stages but they can all merge into one another seamlessly when circumstances are right. For simplicity let us understand them one by one.

The First Stage: Meditation
In an interesting thought Diana Robinson says, “Prayer is when you talk to God; meditation is  when you listen to God.” We believe that meditation is where you can not only listen but also experience God and God-hood in many mystical ways.

Meditation is just a means to control the mind and gain mastery over mind. There are three phases in meditation:

  • Anapanasati
  • Kayanupassana
  • Vipassana

Anapanasati means being with the normal and natural breath.

Kayanupassana is watching, the movements of energy fields experienced in the body as a result of practicing Anapanasati.

Vipassana is paying great attention to the Third-Eye experiences as and when they arise as a result of Anapanasati practice.

Through Aanapanasati meditation, we enter into the Vipassana phase. At this point, the ‘Third eye’ experience follows and we begin to understand that we are not mere physical bodies; we are cosmic consciousness – we are souls. This leads us to the next stage.

The Second Stage: Enlightenment
Osho explains, “ Deep reflections and meditation cultivate the right intellect for us. For enlightenment to become steadfast, the essential twin qualities of Swadhyaya and Satjana Sangatya are a necessity. Swadhyaya is self study. A well tamed mind is a prerequisite for reading well written books by a wide range of spiritual masters and an in depth scrutiny of the spiritual scriptures. Carl Jung has said, “Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”

Satjana Sangatya is keeping enlightened company. It is interacting with the right group of  people who can aid and edge a person forward on his spiritual journey. Enlightenment matures with self study and encouraging intelligent circle of friends. Further, Enlightenment entails not lamenting for anything and not wasting any time.

Fulton Oursler quotes, “Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves – regret for the past  and fear of the future.” We are not born on the earth for lamenting over anything. Whatever be our circumstances, achievement or failures we are here for a profound reason that we all must understand. This lifetime on earth is for rejoicing and celebrating. Every defeat, big or small, is a stepping stone to a new victory, starting with the triumph over our own fears. We may commit mistakes and that is natural but we should not indulge in prolonged regrets. Regrets are blunders and waste of time. Every moment should be utilized creatively and productively.

The Third Stage: Awareness
Dalai Lama quotes, “Through awareness, you get a certain attitude. That’s the way, you see, to achieve more peace, more compassion, more friendship.” Awareness follows Enlightenment. Awareness means, to come back to the moment which is ‘here’ and ‘now’. It is conscious living in the present unmindful of both the past and future. A Master is a paragon of awareness and hence can show the path with an expertise that only he can. Seeking of intense companionship with the masters is crucial in this quest for awareness. Awareness has two essential aspects;

Living in the Moment and Living in the Eternity. Awareness means dedicating oneself at a given moment totally, to the work on hand. It means being completely alive in the present. Awareness also means living in the concept of Eternity. Time is understood as Past, Present and Future.

However, these are not distinct and separate blocks but one continuous existence for a conscious human being. Wise-living demands that we take into consideration the immediate past and future for fathoming the most appropriate action or reaction for the present situation.

But wise-living also demands that we take into consideration the Eternity of Past and the Eternity of Future to comprehend the most appropriate action or reaction at present. Our lifetimes are insignificant compared to the infinity that truly exits. We must be aware of our limitless  dimension and not be confined by our thoughts to the boundaries of our physical bodies.

Osho says, “Awareness is the greatest alchemy there is. Just go on becoming more and more  aware, and you will find your life changing for the better in every possible dimension. It will bring great fulfillment.”


The Final Stage: Life–Zest
Meditation concludes in Enlightenment. Outcome of Enlightenment is Awareness. And  Awareness culminates in Life–Zest !

Every given moment should be enjoyed. Every situation should be savored. As each thought acquires power, life becomes more dynamic and miraculous. When we have life-zest full of awareness, undistorted manifestation of thoughts follow as soon as they are created in our minds.

Life becomes a continuous celebration. Giving and Receiving are the two important parts of ‘Life–Zest ’. Compassion and kindness towards all that surround us should grow inside us till they become part of our natural being. More Life Zest also means that we become more accepting of everything and everyone. Denis De Rougemont says, “Happiness… can exist only in acceptance.” With acceptance comes graceful giving and a graceful taking under all  circumstances. A dynamic and vibrant life follows, with ample opportunities of giving and receiving that is full of love and refinement.

Giving

Giving

Giving

Spending a few hours of your week for others is immensely enriching. Besides helping progress a social cause – voluntary service, educating someone or conducting social events – it gives you a different perspective to life. You will see and learn things that you otherwise wouldn’t have known. It also infuses a sense of gratitude and thankfulness into you and the person or group receiving your services. It helps go inward – beyond the mind and ego. Selflessness is a quality of the soul.

You can volunteer to organize meditation sessions or spiritual science classes. You can join others in promoting or coordinating such sessions. You can reach out to other like-minded communities, groups, schools and corporates and spread the science and practice of meditation.

If you are interested in volunteering to help organize meditation sessions or spiritual science workshops in London, please send email to info@beamaster.org.uk with subject as VOLUNTEER.

Giving your wisdom to others – Sharing

One way you could help spend your time with others is to share your experiences on meditation. You could share your meditation journey and learnings from that. You can share the initial constraints you overcame to become a regular meditator. You can share the experiences you underwent in some of these sessions. You can share the spiritual insights you received during meditation. These will excite and inspire other people who have been wanting to begin or continue meditation.

You can do this in any form. You can write a blog post, record an audio or video or speak about this. You can share your knowledge from relevant books or your experiences from meditation regularly at meditation and spiritual events. Once you feel confident, you can even start teaching this simple Breath Meditation to everyone.

Giving your abundance to society – Donating

Wisdom highlights the importance of sharing and gratefulness for getting more of the same. Abundance grows with giving. Your monetary support to spiritual and social causes is important to drive large impact-making programs. A common form of sharing is to contribute a specific amount or percentage of income to charitable causes – every month.

Conscious Creation in 11 Easy Steps

Conscious Creation in 11 Easy Steps

Conscious Creation in 11 Easy Steps

Conscious creating or cosmic ordering is an exact science, which works for everyone who follows these 11 steps diligently and in complete faith.

 Know what you want

 Our dreams are all about what we want and desire; hence it helps to be very clear about what we want.This is the planting of a seed. Our want must be so strong that it becomes the first thought when we wake up and last thought when we fall asleep. That is a good quality seed.

When a gardener plants a seed, he is very clear about the kind of tree it will eventually grow into. He knows its optimum size, and the shape and color of its leaves. He knows the fragrance of its flowers and the taste of its fruit. While planting a seed, he can clearly visualize the end result.

 Why do you want it?

 Once we know what we want, it also helps to know why we want it. We must have solid reasons to want what we want; otherwise our motivation levels may falter.

The gardener is always clear why he is sowing a particular seed. He doesn’t just sow it randomly. He knows exactly what he is planting and why.

Don’t worry about how

 We don’t have to know how to get what we want; we only have to know what we want, and why we want it. In fact, it helps to say, “I don’t know how it will happen, but it will happen.” Such a statement shows our trust in the process.

The gardener doesn’t know much about botany; he only knows that he wants a particular fruit and goes ahead to plant its seed. How the seed will sprout and grow is not for him to worry about. He leaves this job to the seed itself. He knows that there is life within the seed and the life principle will take care of its growth.

Commitment

 Manifesting our desires is not about hoping and praying, it is about being dedicated to our dream’s fruition. Without a solid commitment, tomorrows will come, years will pass but nothing will change.

The gardener makes it a point to take good care of the patch where he has planted the seed.

 Expectation

Expectation is an impelling force in our life. It creates intent and energy, which lead to attention and focus and eventual manifestation of a desire.

The gardener excitedly expects the seed to sprout, grow into a tree and bear the best fruit.

Laser sharp focus

 The secret of co-creation is that we don’t get what we want; we get what we pay attention to.If you are not focused upon your desire, it means you don’t really desire it that badly.

The gardener is always mindful of the seed that he has planted and pays due attention to all its needs.

 Written commitment

 Writing a dream on a piece of paper removes it from the realm of wishful thinking and makes it more concrete and crystallized. Writing also increases the chances of success by keeping us focused on our desires. Writing creates an image on the screen of our mind and tunes our brain to the frequency of our thought. This process changes our vibration and the vibration changes our action. Thus the simple act of writing propels us towards an inspired action.Finally the action helps us receive what we desire.It all works under the universal Law of Manifestation.

The gardener too has a general timeframe in which he expects to harvest his crop.

 New Life Story

After penning down a written commitment, fill it up with great details to create your ‘New Life Story’. This story must incorporate all areas of your life; professional and personal, including health, finance, relationships, and life style. Make it a narrative, in first person. Write it in present tense, as though you are writing a letter to someone telling the details of your life. The only difference is that these details will be of your dream life, as if you are living this life in the present. Put all your emotions and excitement into this story. Include as many minor details as you possibly can. Run this storythrough your mind at least once a day as each run builds up the momentum. Fine-tune it as and when required, until it completely resonates with you.

The gardener always keeps the important milestones of the growing tree in his mind. He has a clear mental picture of the end product. He dreams about sitting in the shade of the tree and eating its fruit. He feels the cool breeze on his skin and tastes the fruit on his tongue. He talks about the time when the tree will be mature and plans the space around it accordingly.

 Trust and Faith

When you visualize your dream life, the picture must be backed by a strong and unshakable faith that your dream is already a reality. As you mentally live in the visuals, enjoy them completely, believing that you have received them completely. Repeating mere words doesn’t really help, but holding your vision with unshakable faith and trust does.

A gardener does not dig out the seeds to check if they are germinating. He trusts that the growth process is under way, even if he can’t see it. He doesn’t let anyone step on the flowerbeds either because he knows that seedlings can’t grow if people step on them. As the plant grows he protects it from harsh elements, vandals and stray cattle.

 Gratitude

 When we are grateful for things, which we own only in our imagination, we are completely in trust. That is the kind of trust, which makes us achieve our dreams.

The gardener is always grateful for the sun, the rain and the fruit of his labor.

Let go

The final step in the manifestation process is the most important one. It is about letting go of the dream in the care of the universe, and releasing all attachment to it. There is a great power in letting go.

Go with the flow and don’t let the results control your thinking. Get out of the way of the working of your subconscious mind. Remember that grasping tight stops the flow of abundance.

The gardener knows this fact only too well; he does his job and lets go of the rest.

This article is an extract from the book, “Achieve Your Highest Potential: Be the Best You Can Be”, by Chitra Jha, published by Penguin Random House.

Some Basic Laws of Spiritual Science

Some Basic Laws of Spiritual Science

Some Basic Laws of Spiritual Science

Over the last couple of centuries, humanity has reached a great understanding about the laws that govern the physical world, but the mathematically precise laws that govern the universe, are not so well understood. Great sages and saints of all time have applied and taught these laws for millennia, but earth’s scientific community had ignored them until recently.21st century is going to change all that for better. Now scientists are verifying the laws that enable us to live harmoniously with ourselves, with others, and with the natural world.

We cannot achieve our highest potential, without understanding and using the universal laws.

Law of Attraction

 An important universal law, the Law of Attraction recently became popular, through the movie, ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne. The Secret introduced the concept of manifesting to the masses, by explaining how we attract experiences that match our beliefs.

Law of attraction states, that our good remains invisible to us as long as we remain in lower vibrations. When we vibrate higher all the good things of higher vibration show themselves in our life. These things are there in existence but we can’t see them until we match our vibrations with theirs. This change in our vibrations works like a two way street. We attract what is in vibrational alignment with us, and we release what is not in alignment with us; that includes people, circumstances, thoughts, feelings, habits, hobbies, practices and beliefs.

In other words, energy always attracts like energy. In order to have something we haveto be in resonance with it.The universe doesn’t give us what we ask for; it gives us what we resonate with. It does not hear our words – it hears our vibrational frequency.

Nothing ever happens by accident, chance or luck.

Law of Oneness

 Law of Oneness tells us that we are all ‘one being’ expressing itself in different unique forms. Everyone else is just an aspect of us. We are the one who creates the intention and the one who fulfills it.

This effectively means that our smallest, least significant thought, word, or action has real consequence throughout the Universe. It is said that if a butterfly flaps its wings in the Sahara desert, the effect is seen in the melting of Arctic glaciers. This thought puts great responsibility on our shoulders. It virtually tells us that each one of us carries a power to affect the entire world.We are responsible for everything that happens in this Universe. What I do affects you and what you do affects me; even though we may live miles or even continents apart.

This also means that we have the ability to influence everything in our life; right from our health to our finances! There are no limits to the extent to which we can alter our reality. Anything is possible here.

We are powerful beings, who can actually change the condition of the world, because our personal energy field influences the collective energy field, which in turn influences the universal energy field!

Once we truly internalize that everything we say, think and do affects every person, place and thing in creation; when we really ‘get’ it, it is the most amazing experience of humility and joy.

Law of Abundance

 The universal law of abundance tells us that when we offer abundance to others, the universe fills us up with more abundance.When we give from our heart, we become a channel for the flow of universal abundance.What we give out comes back full circle as giving circulates wealth and abundance. Givers always gain because the ones who give the most receive the most.

When universe manifests our dreams, it does not take away anything from anyone else; it just dips into its own abundance. Similarly, we don’t lose out on our dreams if someone else gets there first. Law of abundance tells us to make most of ourselves; for us and for others.It expects us to grow and affect everyone in a positive manner.

Law of Perpetual Increase

This law is very visible in nature around us, where a single seed produces hundreds of seeds, and everything always becomes more.Nature drives us to know more, do more, be more and have more, in order to give more.

Everyone and everything in nature aspires for more abundant life and advancement. It is an inherent instinct. Similarly, all human actions are directed by a desire for more. We want more food, more clothes, more goods, more beauty, more fun, more love, more knowledge, more wisdom, more peace and more life.

But we have to understand the difference between wanting more from a platform of joyful expansion, and wanting more from a feeling of lack and poverty consciousness. There is a difference between the two, and it is important to understand this difference.

When we act according to the law of perpetual increase, we receive progressively more for ourselves while giving progressively more to everyone who comes in our contact. We become a central node from which abundance flows to all.

Those of us who live in scarcity see the cup as half empty, positive thinkers see the cup as half full, but those who understand the law of perpetual increase,always seethe cup as overflowing; and abundance overflows in their lives.

 We activate the law of perpetual increase when we open our heart and wish more growth to all.

Law of Reciprocity

 According to the universal law of reciprocity, if we want more love in our life, we have to give more love to others. If we want respect, we have to respect others. If we want to be successful, we have to help someone else succeed. If we want happiness, we have to make others happy. And if we want to be wealthy, we have to help others create wealth. In other words, whatever we want for ourselves, we have to give more of that to others.

If we can’t give material things, we can at least intend that others experience growth. For example, if I want a house, I don’t have to give a house to someone, but I can definitely send a thought that everyone ought to have a house. That is a thought of increase. It keeps us in tune with the law of reciprocity and leads us to ourheart-felt desires.
