Many authors have written about natural laws that govern perception, reality and the power of mind and thoughts. Over the next several days, we will explore the various ways these writers have named and described these laws. This examination is merely a quick look at each of these laws, however. It is recommended that you study the books mentioned for yourself to gain a deeper understand of The Laws and how to apply them in your life.
Raymond Holliwell, in his book “Working With The Law,” proposed that there was one ultimate law, the Law of Mind, and that it was in reality synonymous with God. He then broke that one Law down into 11 component laws. One of these laws was Attraction, but instead of being the entirety of the law, it worked in conjunction with the other ten. Today we will continue our look at how Dr. Holliwell viewed The Laws by examining the sixth of the 11 components of this Law of Mind.
Law of Compensation
The Law of Compensation can be summed up by saying “We reap what we sow.” We get back what we put out. If you sow complaint, anger, resentment, and discouragement then those are the conditions you encourage to continue around you. When you give out happiness, encouragement, praise, and thanks, those positive conditions will return to you.
Success and abundance do not need to be made or found. they already exist. what must happen is that we must correct ourselves to bring us into alignment with them. We do this by changing our mental state, by keeping our minds on the positive and away from the negative. We also do it by doing each job, each piece of work, each task in front of us to the best of our ability. Even if we aren’t in the job or position we want right now, we must still perform our work in a positive attitude and as good as we can.
Just was water eventually “finds its level,” people settle into the place that they fit. When you more than fill the place you hold now, then you will move upward to a better place to fill. This doesn’t mean there is a “natural order” and that somehow some people are destined to fill a place by some accident of birth. If you want to rise higher, pay attention to where you are and what you can do better.
Also, do not feel the need for competition in life. Healthy competition in sports for example is good. Even friendly competition in business is positive, such as when two auto dealerships in town decide to have a contest to see who will sell the most vehicles in a given period of time. The problem comes in when the competition is your entire focus. When your attention is more on driving your competitor out of business than it is building up your own business. Focus on doing your job to the best of your ability. Focus on serving your customers as fully as you can, on making your business the best it can be. Don’t give any thought to out doing anyone else.
We reap what we sow. If what you are reaping isn’t what you want, change what you are sowing!
