There are three components to Law of Least Effort.
a. Acceptance. It simply means that you make a commitment: "Today I accept people, situations, circumstances and events as they occur.I will live in moment. I will accept things as they are, not as I would like them to be (my ego). Knowing and understanding this I can be responsible for my emotions and feelings and there for towards my reactions to world. "
b. Responsibility. It means not to blame others and yourself. Take moment and transform it to something better. In this way every tyrant will become your teacher. Reality is an interpretation and you will have many opportunities to evolve. There is a hidden meaning behind all events and this hidden meaning will be serving your evolution.
c. Defenselessness. This means that you do not have to convince or persuade other people of your point of view. If you watch people around you you'll see that they spend 99% of their time defending their point of view.
5. The Law of Intention and Desire
Whenever you put your attention on will, you grow stronger in your life. Whenever you take your attention away from your will it will disintegrate and disappear. Intention on other hand triggers transformation of energy and information. Intent is desire without attachment to outcome.
6.The Law of Detachment
In order to acquire anything in physical universe you have to relinquish your attachment to it. This does not mean you give up intention to create your desire. You don't give up your intention and you don't give up your desire. You give up your attachment to result. This is a very powerful thing to do. The moment you give up your attachment to result, you begin to gain perspective on situation.
7. The Law of Dharma Or Purpose in Life
Everyone has a purpose in Life - a unique gift or special talent to give to others. When we blend this talent with service to others, we experience ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is ultimate goal of all goals.
What would you do if money was no concern and you had all time in world? If you would still do what you are doing now, then you are in Dharma because you have passion for what you do -you are expressing you unique talent. How are you best suited to serve world? Answer that question and put it into practice. By doing this you can generate all wealth you want because your creative expression matches your fellow humans. You will know true joy and true meaning of success.
"Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because characte is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are." -John Wooden, college basketball coach
"Although they only give gold medals in field of athletics, I encourage everyone to look into themselves and find their own personal dream, whatever that may be - sports, medicine, law, business, music, writing, whatever. The same principles apply. Turn your dream into a goal and learn how to attack that goal systematically. Break it into bite-size chunks that seem possible, and then don't give up. Just keep plugging away." - John Naber, swimmer, four-time Olympic Gold Medalist
