The 7 Spiritual Laws of Success: #3 The Law of Karma or Cause and Effect

The 7 Spiritual Laws of Success

By: Deepak Chopra

Deepak Chopra says Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind . . . what we sow is what we reap. And when we choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of our karma is happiness and success.

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

1. Today I will witness the choices I make in each moment. And in the mere witnessing of these choices, I will bring them to my conscious awareness. I will know that the best way to prepare for any moment in the future is to be fully conscious in the present.

2. Whenever I make a choice, I will ask myself two questions: “What are the consequences of this choice that I’m making?” and “Will this choice bring fulfillment and happiness to me and also to those who are affected by this choice?”

3. I will then ask my heart for guidance and be guided by its message of comfort or discomfort. If the choice feels comfortable, I will plunge ahead with abandon. If the choice feels uncomfortable, I will pause and see the consequences of my action with my inner vision. This guidance will enable me to make spontaneously correct choices for myself and for all those around me.

48 Laws of Power: Law #8 Make Other People Come to You – Use Bait If Necessary

Law 8: Make other people come to you – use bait if necessary

  •      When you force others to act, you’re in control.
  •      Make opponents come to you.
  •      Lure with gains, then attack.

Bring people into your reality. Do not bend and stretch to accommodate the lesser – attract them, genuinely or not, and wait. This is the fine line that separates the puppet from the master. This is pulling others into your frame.

This has been epitomized countless times in The Manosphere:

  • Don’t go on a date with a girl if her friends are present
  • In an LTR, you both operate in one reality – yours or hers
  • Maintain frame (often over-used and under-explained)

Real Power is the degree to which a person has control over their own circumstances. Real Power is the degree to which we control the directions of our lives. – Rollo Tomassi

Real power is putting your entire reality above everything and everyone else. It is a my way or the highway mentality. It is you being the master, the boss, the King.

Luring: In the chapter, Greene talks about using bait to lure your enemies into your reality, giving you ultimate control. When luring others, you must appeal to their self-interest. Find their motivations and weaknesses. Put yourself in their position – see through their eyes, and give them what they want need. Make them an offer they can’t refuse…

Pull them into your reality; into your frame. Act. Do not react.

48 Laws of Power: Law #5 So Much Depends on Reputation – Guard it with Your Life

Law 5: So much depends on reputation – guard it with your life

  •      Reputation is the cornerstone of power.
  •      Reputation alone will make you win.
  •      Destroy enemies by attacking their reputation.

Be aware of your current reputation and live up to it!

A few summers back, my usual group of friends would hang around in a water park. Once, the son of the richest guy in our town decided to join us. We were all in awe…for about 15 minutes.

When he came, we immediately moved aside to offer him a seat and whenever he spoke, we’d quickly shut up and turn to listen to him. He instead, really let himself go. He started telling us he was late bcs his mother didn’t approve of his boxers. Oookay??! As we didn’t laugh frantically, he followed with more examples of how ‘lame’ his mom was.

awkward silence

In about 14 minutes the dude proceeded to destroy the reputation that he held as “the son of one of the richest and most respected men in town” to an “awkward, lame dude”.

To be honest he was an alright kid, but because he failed to live up to our expectations based on his families reputation, we thought even less of him.

It took less than 15 minutes to destroy a families reputation that took decades to build.

48 Laws of Power: Law #3 Conceal your Intentions

Law 3: Conceal your intentions

  •      Keep people off-balance. They cannot prepare if they don’t know. Guide them down the wrong path.

An old banking saying:

“Push the background to the foreground and the facts underground.”

Deceive by being open with information that does not matter while hiding those things that really are important. Information overload.

Sometimes a “shit test” can be deflected by going on a long story surrounding the topic but never exposing anything. By giving abundant useless information you appear to be addressing her feelings while never actually giving anything away. She at least feels she got an explanation and since it was her emotion that mattered to her she feels satisfied.

“Giving the runaround.”
