The Law of Giving & Receiving

A Note on the Law of Giving and Receiving

Deepak Chopra

by Deepak Chopra

The universe operates through dynamic exchange. Nothing is static.

Your body is in dynamic and constant exchange with the body of the universe; your mind is dynamically interacting with the mind of the cosmos; your energy is an expression of cosmic energy.

The flow of life is nothing other than the harmonious interaction of all the elements and forces that structure the field of existence, which operates in your life as the Law of Giving. The word affluence comes from the root word ‘affluere’ which means ‘to flow to’. The word affluence means ‘to flow in abundance.’ Money is really a symbol of the life energy we exchange and the life energy we use as a result of the service we provide to the universe. Another word is ‘currency’ which comes from the Latin word ‘currere’ which means ‘to run.’

Therefore if we stop the circulation of money – since it is life energy – we will stop its circulation back into our lives as well.

Every relationship we have is one of give and take. The more you give in life, the more you will receive, because you will keep the abundance of the universe circulating in your life. It is the intention behind your giving and receiving that is the most important thing.

The intention should always be to create happiness for the giver and the receiver. The frame of mind behind the giving has to be joyful – then the energy behind the giving increases many times over.

The universe operates through dynamic exchange . . . giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.

I will put the Law of Giving and Receiving into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:

1. Wherever I go, and whomever I encounter, I will bring them a gift. The gift may be a compliment, a flower, or a prayer. Today, I will give something to everyone I come into contact with, and so I will begin the process of circulating joy, wealth and affluence in my life and in the lives of others.

2. Today I will gratefully receive all the gifts that life has to offer me. I will receive the gifts of nature: sunlight and the sound of birds singing, or spring showers or the first snow of winter. I will also be open to receiving from others, whether it be in the form of a material gift, money, a compliment or a prayer.

3. I will make a commitment to keep wealth circulating in my life by giving and receiving life’s most precious gifts: the gifts of caring, affection, appreciation and love. Each time I meet someone, I will silently wish them happiness, joy and laughter.

Why Do Some Have Unprecedented Success?

Understand this Principle

Or the even better question: how can YOU achieve greater success in your enterprise?

A: Look for and attract those people who believe what you believe.

If you start out with clearly defined reasons for doing what you do, you will attract a core group of people who are in alignment with you. That means the spread of your product, network, mission or service will happen smoothly, effectively and quickly and be an inspiration to others because there is an allignment of your beliefs, mission, reason for your business.

As A Man Thinketh

Everything Begins With Thought

James Allen (November 28,1864 – 1912) was a British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry. His best known work, As a Man Thinketh, was mass produced since its publication in 1902, has inspired millions around the world and is partly responsible for launching an entire self-improvement industry. It has provided a key source of ideas to countless bestselling motivational and self-help authors of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. As with many of Allen’s works, the book’s launch was quiet and its full impact was not felt until after his passing.

In As a Man Thinketh, James Allen shows how our thoughts and ideals determine the sort of person we become. Og Mandino counted As a Man Thinketh among the top ten success books of all time. Now in the public domain, As a Man Thinketh is a classic in the truest sense: few books have been so widely read, have stood the test of time so well, have had such an impact on generations of readers, and have carried such a simple, profound message: You are what you think.

The Back Bone of Sensible Supplementation

Your bones are the structural support for your body, so it makes sense to give them the nutrition they need. Often our body warns us that we are lacking some of the essential minerals with back pain, leg cramps, headaches – in fact the symptoms are too numerous to mention here.While few of these pain are quite noticeable in their primary stage, problems such as nerve damage can take quite some time to show problems to which then reading and the quickly taking medication is the only way one can feel better.

Look After Your Back!

Arthritis is one of the most painful conditions and one in six people suffer from it and the numbers are increasing. Osteoarthritis, which appears when wear and tear on joint structures exceeds the repair the body can do can lead to degeneration of joints, and the damaged surrounding tissues become inflamed and painful.

Almost every 8 minutes, someone is admitted to a hospital somewhere in Australia with a fracture due to osteoporosis. Over 1.9 million, which is 1 in 10 Australians have the condition. Osteoporotic fracture occurs in more than 65,000 people each year.

Just losing 10% of the bone mass in your spine can double the risk of spinal fracture and a 10% loss of bone mass in your hip can increase your risk of a broken hip, two and a half times. By 2020, one third of all hospital beds in Australia are likely to be occupied by hip fracture patients and 20% of people with hip fracture will die within 6 months. Read More
