These days you can hardly go through any articles, books, DVDs, movies, films, documentaries with regard to self-improvement or self-help without coming across at least one mentioning of some ‘Universal Law’. Suddenly, there appears to be a Universal Law for anything. Like we haven’t got enough Laws to deal with already!
Listen, there’s some truth to these ‘Universal Laws’, but in most cases, a little nuance is in place. So I ask you, please read along, as I’ll clear it all up in the remainder of this article.
There are Universal Laws that guide our lives behind the scenes. These are actually rather ‘universal principles of life’. That would be a more appropriate qualification. But these days, people are always looking for ‘Universal Laws’. As a consequence, other people who think they know what they’re talking about come up with new ‘Universal Laws’ all the time, in an attempt to set themselves apart from the already giant mass of people talking about ‘Universal Laws’. So in the self-improvement or self-help world, every now and then a new ‘Universal Law’ makes its entrance, in addition to the most widely and most predominantly mentioned Universal Law, which is the Law of Attraction.
The word ‘Law’ appears to be a magic word… Almost a magic wand that casts a spell on anyone who reads it that puts them in a hypnotized state thinking that what it says must be true. After all, it’s a ‘Law’ isn’t it? A ‘Law’ is always right, no more thinking required.
Today, subjects like the ‘Law of Attraction’ are at an all-time high of popularity. We’ve got the movie ‘The Secret’ and a whole big bunch of people trying to leverage on it by proclaiming themselves as ‘experts in the field of the Law of Attraction’. Yes, there’s that magic word (wand) again.
Despite so many people having seen the movie ‘The Secret’ and knowing about the Law of Attraction, there is only a very, very small number of people who are actually living the life of their dreams, or ‘attracting their desires’, or ‘manifesting their dreams’. Yes those are some other ‘magic words’ from today’s common terminology of the self-improvement and self-help industry.
How come? How come, with all that knowledge, with all those ‘Universal Laws’ already written and told about, and with all those new ‘Universal Laws’, ‘Spiritual Laws of the Universe’, ‘Subsidiary Laws’ and so on coming about each and every day on the Internet and elsewhere… How come that all the people buying those books, DVDs, movies, films, documentaries, and so on, are still not ‘attracting their desires’ or ‘manifesting their dreams’?
I’ll tell you why. Most people have heard something about it, but have no real knowledge about the matter. They are aware of the fact that there are ‘Universal Laws, or rather ‘universal principles of life’ that work behind the scenes and guide the courses of their lives. However, they’ve lost track, because so many people who think they know what they’re talking about (while they don’t) come up with new ‘Universal Laws’ all the time, that may have some truth to them, but do nothing more than making things way too difficult and complex to apply.
And besides that, there’s often one big problem when you start reading about the ‘Law of Attraction’ and the ‘Laws of the Universe’. People who speak or write about them tend to so overly symbolic, that few well-thinking people can make any practical sense of it. What they find is nothing but ‘enigmas wrapped in riddles’.
There’s a strong desire for clarity on this subject. Listen, I can come up with hundreds of ‘Universal Laws’ if I want. Here’s a couple of them…
Introducing the Universal Law of Ping Pong
It says you have to use ping pong balls if you want to play table tennis.
Introducing the Universal Law of Rain
It says that when it rains, things get wet.
Disappointing, huh? But they did sound interesting at first, right?! Do you see what’s happening here? The mere qualification of ‘Universal Law’ makes it sound interesting already, while the true deeper meaning of the ‘Universal Law’ is nothing more than a standard blindingly obvious platitude.
So let me give you another Universal Law right now, to satisfy your probably insatiable need (or so you think) for knowledge of all Universal Laws to improve your life, ‘attract your desires’, and ‘manifest your dreams’ once and for all:
Introducing the Universal Law of Bollocks
It says that it’s all bollocks.
That’s right, it’s all bollocks. Bollocks, bollocks, bollocks. There are universal principles guiding your life. If you want, you can call them ‘Universal Laws’. I’ve done so in my books and articles, because that’s what people are looking for these days. If I would apply other terminology, people would never find out about this extremely useful and straightforward knowledge, and would probably never ‘attract their desires’ or ‘manifest their dreams’.
It’s all bollocks, because before this whole game we call ‘human life’ started, we didn’t get an instruction manual on how life was supposed to be lived. The purpose of the whole thing was to find out the universal principles and realize that through applying these principles, YOU can have full control over whatever it is you want to create.
Yes, that’s right, you ‘create’, which is much more than ‘attracting’. But that’s something you’ll discover as you get more experienced in the conscious living of your life and engineering your own success by applying the universal principles of life. Yes, that’s what you can do with the knowledge of these universal principles, or ‘Universal Laws’ if you will.
I talk about Universal Laws in my books, that’s true. But again, people are looking for ‘Universal Laws’ these days, not for universal principles. Because you were looking for ‘Universal Laws’, you were able to find this article. I describe the universal principles of life along 6 main Universal Laws. The names given to these ‘Universal Laws’ are nice, and are probably what you want to hear. However, the bollocks is often in the names. It’s the content discussing the universal principles that makes this knowledge so unique.
Yes, you can do with only 6 main Universal Laws, but that’s more than enough to cover all the ‘subsidiary universal laws’ or ‘spiritual laws of the universe’ or whatever you want to call them that all those people on the Internet seem to come up with these days. These 6 main ‘Universal Laws’ just cover the universal principles of life, without falling for the trap of too many detail and complexity of too many ‘Universal Laws’. All those additional ‘Universal Laws’ or ‘subsidiary laws’ all fall under the Universal Law of Bollocks.
Too keep things simple, you don’t want to lose yourself in the detail. You want just enough straightforward knowledge for simple application of the principles, while still having a total view on the big picture that is comprehensive enough to not forget about any universal principle, or ‘Universal Law’ if you will.
If you want to make life simple for yourself, to start pulling the right strings to create the life and destiny of your dreams, then don’t waste another second on trying to find out every small, detailed, insignificant ‘Universal Law’ someone came up with today. You’ll be like a cat chasing its own tail: a never-ending story that leaves you exhausted and depressed. Just keep it simple, focus on the 6 main Universal Laws that cover all universal principles, and you’ll be off living more than your dreams before you can even consciously realize you created such an incredible experience!
Sounds good? I thought so.
Keep it straightforward and easy-to-apply. The game of life wasn’t intended to be complex and difficult. The game was supposed to be simple and easy, and most of all FUN!
And so it can be, if you don’t make it too hard on yourself.
