1.All Are Related: There is a Native American saying, which translates roughly to "All are Related". Everything in universe is part of The Great Spirit, from a rock, to a plant, to a fish, to a human. The spirit flows between and within us all, and is building block of everything. Since we are all part of same whole, we should treat rest of whole as if it is part of us, i.e. with compassion and love. We are all part of Great Spirit, just like all different leaves on a tree are still part of tree.
2.The Energy Flow: The universe is composed of energy. This energy flows between everything, us and within us all. When we have internal blocks, energy fails to flow correctly, causing illness, lethargy and other symptoms. This energy can be directed consciously, we can see it, and feel it. How we feel affects our energy levels; negativity drains energy, positivity creates energy.
3.We Are Beings of Both Spirit and Flesh: We are spirits, but at same time, we are creatures of flesh. We inhabit both worlds simultaneously, even though we are often unaware of it. We should not shun flesh for spirit or vice versa. Both are equally important. We have to walk with one foot in each of these worlds, and pay them both attention. Neglecting either world causes distress in other.
4.No One Entity is Superior to Another: No one being or creature is any better or greater than another. We are all same. We are all on different paths and have different levels of understanding, but that does not make any one of us better than another. Humans are not masters of nature, nor animals and plants. They are our companions, and co-inhabitants of this planet. We are not superior to them, nor do we own them. We should treat them all with respect.
5.Belief Creates: How we perceive universe is shaped by our beliefs. If we believe we are in a hurry, then everyone else appears to be going slow. Through belief and positive thought, we can create virtually anything. We should believe in our abilities and ourselves, and we will succeed. We can combine power of belief with that of visualisation to bring anything into reality.
6.Intuition: Inside of us, a voice speaks and guides us. It is our intuition. We can choose to ignore it or to listen to it. Once we are in tune with our intuition and start to listen to it, we will be guided and will find that we can achieve more than we thought possible. We will begin to realise that Great Spirit works through us - often in mysterious ways, but always to our benefit - in long term.
7.The Higher Purpose: Everything that happens is for a reason and for greater good. We have to learn to look at events in our lives from more than just normal human perspective. We must see them from perspective of Great Spirit and to look at what good will come from these events. This is old maxim of "is glass half full or half empty". We can look at events badly, half empty, and our reaction will be worse. However, should we look at events better, i.e. half full, then we are more positive, which means our energy is higher, and our reaction will be better.
8.There are No Ordinary Moments: The past only exists in our memory. The future only exists as our expectation. The only time that really exists is NOW. It is a precious moment and we should treat every single moment as special and live it to full. By being in present, we have presence. To live in now conscious mind should be quiet and you must focus totally on what you are doing, not what you are going to be doing next week, or what you are going to have for lunch.
9.There are No Limits: The only limits we have are those we place upon ourselves, or others place upon us. To this end, we should avoid being put in a pigeonhole and labelled by others. If someone views a dog as being vicious, then it is more likely to be vicious. We should hold no expectations of others, and let them be themselves, just as we should be ourselves.
10.Action not Reaction: If we are tickled, our reaction is to laugh. We should be at a state where we do not react in a situation, but act. Reaction is unconscious, whereas Action is conscious. We should not let past influences affect our actions, e.g. if we were once bitten by a dog, when we next meet a dog, we should not let past bite affect how we act towards it. There are times to act, as well as times to be still. By living in present and having control of conscious mind, we can better direct our action.
11.Positivity Rules: Negative thoughts attract negative events and drain our energy. Positive thoughts attract positive events and increase our energy. To this end, we should look at our thoughts and events which happen to us in a positive light, realising negative thoughts for what they are and releasing them.
12.Posture, Pose & Breathing: Energy flows through body, as it flows through all things. If posture and pose are bad, energy can not flow cleanly and causes blockages, which manifest as pain or illness. We breathe in energy from world around us. Therefore, our breaths should be deep and full, coming from bottom of belly, and not chest. This enables us to maximise our energy. Deep breathing helps relax us. When we are stressed, angry or afraid our breathing changes and becomes shallow and faster. By consciously controlling our breathing and keeping it deep and even, we can release stress, anger or fear, enabling us to act consciously in situation.
13.Everything in Balance: The universe exists in a state of balance, as should we. We can do anything we wish, but should always do it to moderation, never to excess. Should we do things to excess, then they can become addictive, which drains energy and may become negative. Being balanced allows us to act better in situations. If we are sat on fence, so to speak, we can jump off either way should we desire to.
14.Intent is Action: You can intend to do anything, and your intent is important. However, unless intent is followed with action, then intent is nothing. As an example. I may intend to get fit, but spend all my time sat in front of TV eating pizza and drinking cola. I have my intention, but my actions do not confirm or create intention. Therefore, if you intend something, do it, don't just talk about it. Action turns knowledge into wisdom.
