The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams
by Deepak Chopra | New World Library © 1994 · 128 pages

This is easily one of THE most transformative books I've ever read. In the Note, we'll explore all seven spiritual laws with special emphasis on #7 (The Law of Dharma) that inspired me to sell my former business and, eventually, create PhilosophersNotes. (Here's the question Deepak asks that rocked my world: If you had all the time and all the money in the world, what would you do? … So, what would you do? … The Note has cool Ideas on how to answer and rock that one!)

“Success in life could be defined as the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals. Success is the ability to fulfill your desires with effortless ease. And yet success, including the creation of wealth, has always been considered to be a process that requires hard work, and it is often considered to be at the expense of others. We need a more spiritual approach to success and affluence, which is the abundant flow of all good things to you. With the knowledge and practice of spiritual law, we put ourselves in harmony with nature and create with carefreeness, joy, and love.”

~ Deepak Chopra from The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

I’ll just start by saying this is one of those truly life-changing kinda books. Perhaps I should offer a warning.

→ WARNING: Do not read this book unless you are ready to transform your life! :) ←

On my last re-read (I’ve read it several times), I was so inspired by a heightened sense of clarity around my “Dharma”—one of the Seven Spiritual Laws—that I sold the business I was running at the time (Zaadz) within about 60 days of realizing I had a higher purpose to fulfill. Powerful.

Although a small book and a quick read, it may win the award for word-for-word most wise book out there—it’s PACKED with wisdom. (Actually, on further reflection, it DEFINITELY wins the award. If it’s not on your shelf yet, I highly recommend it! :)

It’s literally one big quote.

If you could see my copy, you’d see that more of it is underlined and marked up than not. And, as with all of Deepak’s books, the words flow lyrically as we’re guided into a deeper sense of who we are and how we’re destined to manifest our Highest Selves.
