“Nature does not ask your permission, she has nothing to do with your wishes, and whether you like her laws or dislike them, you are bound to accept her as she is, and consequently all her conclusions.”
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Are things happening to you that leave you puzzled? Are bad things happening taking place in your life and you have no idea how to change or control them? Are you enjoying good things and you want to know how to keep it that way? If so, you may want to pay close attention to natural laws. If you pay close attention, you will no longer say, “I don’t know why these things happen to me.”
We are born into nature and as a result, not following it’s laws is truly suicidal. Natural laws should be taught in our schools especially in lower grades so as to save us from the pain of colliding with them. You see, Mother nature is what she is, you take her as she is, she will never play according to your wishes, this you must clearly understand, it’s you who must always play according to her rules, call it unfair if you like but hey, it is what it is!
These laws can bring stability, assurance, and confidence to your life if you make the choice of understanding and applying them. Let’s look at only three of them:
- The Law of Relativity:
This law states that nothing is what it is until you relate it to something. Point of view is determined by what the observer is relating to. The nature, value, or quality of something can only be measured in relation to another object. Nothing is good or bad until you relate it to something. In my case, I compared my story of tragically losing my parents at a young age to Les Brown’s story of not even knowing his parents. This made me realized how lucky I was to have at least known my parents and some special moments I shared with them. I felt that my situation wasn’t the worst and this gave me hope for the future looking at what he went to achieve in life in spite of his background.
- The Law of Cause and Effect:
This law states that for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. Every cause has an effect, and every effect has a cause. All thought is creative, so be careful of what you wish for…you’ll get it. This means whatever you put out there, you’ll get it back tenfold. If we have bad thoughts about other people or ourselves, it’s going to come back again to us. Have you ever thought of someone and all of a sudden or soon enough they call you or you bump into them? This proves that our thoughts have magnetic power, what we think about, we bring about!
Say good things to people; treat people with total respect, and it will come back to you. Never worry about what you are going to get. Just concentrate on what you want to give unconditionally. What goes around, comes around.
- The Law of Gestation:
This law states that everything, especially of great value, takes time. All things have a beginning and grow into form as more energy is added to it. Thoughts are like seeds planted in our fertile minds that bloom into our physical experience if we’ve nourished them. This is something super important to understand. Practice your craft or an idea and do so over and over and over with the appreciation and understanding that in time, it will manifest. Stay focused and know that your goals will become a reality when the time is right.
It’s time you stop running away from the highest that is in you. You were born with seeds of greatness, nurture them and protect them with everything you’ve got.
