What happens when we accept our circumstances? Well, first of all, we relax. Next we change our vibration, our energy pattern, and the rate of our heartbeat. Once again we’re able to tap into the boundless positive energy of the Universe. Acceptance also illuminates reality so that we’re better able to see the next step.

But the most beautiful things in life are not things. They’re people, and places, memories, and pictures. They’re feelings and moments and smiles and laughter.

12 Laws of Karma to Abide

Great Law

“As you sow, so shall you reap, Law of Cause and Effect.”

To receive happiness, peace, love, and friendship, one ought to exude happiness, peacefulness, loving, and a true friendship.

Whatever one puts out into the Universe will come back to them.

Law of Creation

Life requires our participation to happen, it does not happen by itself.

We are one with the Universe, both inside and out.

Whatever surrounds us portrays a window to our inner state.

Surround yourself with what you want to have in your life and be yourself.

Law of Humility

One must accept something in order to change it.

If all one sees is an enemy or a negative character trait, then they are not and cannot be focused on a higher level of existence.

Law of Growth

“Wherever you go, there you are.”

It is we who must change and not the people, places or things around us if we want to grow spiritually.

When we change who and what we are within our hearts, our lives mold and change too.

Law of Responsibility

If there is something wrong in one’s life, there is something wrong in them. We mirror what surrounds us, and what surrounds us mirrors us; this is a Universal Truth.

One must take responsibility for what is in one’s life.

Law of Connection

The smallest or seemingly least important of things must be done with great concern because everything in the Universe is connected.

Each step leads to the next step, and so forth and so on. Someone must do the initial work to get a job done.

Law of Focus

If our focus is on Spiritual Values, it is not possible for us to have lower thoughts like greed or anger.

Law of Giving and Hospitality

If one believes something to be true, then sometime in their life they will be called upon to demonstrate that truth.

Law of Here and Now

One cannot be in the here and now if they are looking backward to examine what was or forward to worry about the future.

Old thoughts, old patterns of behavior, and old dreams prevent us from having new ones. Let go.

Law of Change

History repeats itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path.

Law of Patience and Reward

All Rewards require initial toil. Rewards of lasting value require patient and perseverance.

True joy comes from doing what one is supposed to be doing, and knowing that the reward will come in its own time.

Law of Significance and Inspiration

One gets back from something whatever they put into it. The true value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it.

Every personal contribution is also a contribution to the Whole. Loving contributions bring life to and inspire the Whole.
