“An integral being knows without going,
sees without looking,
and accomplishes without doing.”
If you observe nature at work, you will see that least effort is expended. Grass doesn’t try to grow, it just grows. The earth doesn’t try to spin on its own axis; it is the nature of the earth to spin with dizzying speed and to hurtle through space. It is the nature of babies to be in bliss. It is the nature of the sun to shine. It is the nature of the stars to glitter and sparkle. And it is human nature to make our dreams manifest into physical form, easily and effortlessly.
In Vedic science, this principle is known as the principle of economy of effort, or “do less and accomplish more.” Nature’s intelligence functions effortlessly, frictionlessly, spontaneously. It is non-linear; it is intuitive, holistic and nourishing. And when you are in harmony with nature, when you are established in the knowledge of your true self, you can make use of the Law of Least Effort.
Least effort is expended when your actions are motivated by love, because nature is held together by the energy of love. When you seek power and control over other people, you waste energy. When you seek money or power for the sake of ego, you spend energy chasing the illusion of happiness instead of enjoying happiness in the moment. When you seek money for personal gain only, you cut off the flow of energy to yourself, and interfere with the expression of nature’s intelligence. But when your actions are motivated by love, your energy multiplies and accumulates - and the surplus energy you gather and enjoy can be channeled to create anything that you want, including unlimited wealth. When your internal reference is your spirit and not your ego, when you are immune to criticism and unfearful of any challenge, you can use energy creatively for the experience of affluence and evolution.
Most of our energy goes into upholding our importance. If we are capable of losing some of that importance, we would free our energy from trying to maintain the illusory idea of our grandeur and would provide ourselves with enough energy to catch a glimpse of the actual grandeur of the Universe.
So make a commitment today to follow a path of no resistance. This is the path through which nature’s intelligence unfolds spontaneously, without friction or effort. When you have the exquisite combination of acceptance and responsibility you will experience life flowing with effortless ease.
You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices. Some of these are made consciously, while others are made unconsciously. But the best way to understand and maximize karmic law is to become consciously aware of the choices we make in every moment.
Whether you like it or not, everything that is happening at this moment is a result of the choices you have made in the past. If I were to insult you, you would most likely make the choice of being offended. If I were to pay you a compliment, you would most likely make the choice of being pleased or flattered. But think about it: it’s still a choice. In other words, most of us - even though we are infinite choice-makers - have become bundles of conditioned reflexes that are constantly being triggered by people and circumstances into predictable outcomes of behaviour. These conditioned reflexes are like Pavlovian conditioning. Pavlov is famous for demonstrating that if you give a dog something to eat every time you ring a bell, soon the dog starts to salivate when you just ring the bell, because it has associated one stimulus with the other. Similarly, most of us have repetitive and predictable responses to the stimuli in our environment. Our reactions seem to be automatically triggered by people and circumstances, and we forget that these are still choices that we are making in every moment of our existence. We are simply making these choices unconsciously.
If you step back for a moment and witness the choices you are making, then in just this act of witnessing, you take the whole process from the unconscious realm into the conscious realm. This procedure is indeed empowering !
When you make any choice - any choice at all - ask yourself two things: First of all, “ What are the consequences of this choice that I’m making?” In your heart you will immediately know what they are. Secondly, “ Will this choice that I’m making now bring happiness to me and to those around me?” There is a very interesting mechanism that the universe has to help you make spontaneously correct choices. The mechanism has to do with sensations in your body. Your body experiences two kinds of sensations: one is sensation of comfort, the other of discomfort. For some this sensation is in the area of solar plexus but for most it’s in the heart. Most people think the heart is mushy and sentimental. But it’s rather intuitive; holistic; contextual and relational. It taps into the cosmic computer- the field of pure potentiality, pure knowledge, and infinite organising power. At times it may not even seem rational, but the heart has a computing ability that is far more accurate and far more precise than anything within the limits of rational thought.
You can use the Law of Karma to create money and affluence, and the flow of all good things to you, any time you want. But first, you must become consciously aware that your future is generated by the choices you are making in every moment of your life. Your soul is a bundle of consciousness that has the seeds of karma, memory and desire. By becoming conscious of these seeds of manifestation, you become a conscious generator of reality. By becoming a conscious choice-maker, you begin to generate actions that are evolutionary for you and for those that are around you. And that’s all you need to do!
