Seven Laws of Daily Yoga

I have personally found the wonderful seven laws of daily yoga to be very beneficial in helping me focus and keep me in the virtuous frame of mind, that I strive to live each moment of my life. They sometimes bring me to awareness that I still have much to learn, other times remind me how far I have come, always gently guiding me along. These are wise words from enlightened teachers in our midst. Enjoy.

The Law of Pure Potentiality:
This states that whatever consciousness can imagine, it can accomplish.  And can be achieved through meditation, non-judgment or communing with nature.

The Law of Giving and Receiving:
In the universe everything is circulating. As long as I keep things circulating I will have abundance in my life. Giving and receiving should be in balance. I will give to others, receive the abundance of the universe, and express gratitude.

The Law of Karma:
What you sow, you reap. Make conscious aware choices that are good for you and good for everybody else.

The Law of Least Effort:
Effortless spontaneity, or do less and accomplish more. Or, do nothing and accomplish everything, as it happens in nature. Know what you want to achieve and then let it happen, without trying too hard. Allow.

Law of Intention and Desire:
Everything we do starts with intention and desire. You are what your deepest desire is; as is your desire, so is your intention; as is your intention, so is your will; as is your will, so is your deed. As is your deed, so is your destiny.

Law of Detachment:
By letting go, we are more likely to get something than if you hang on to something too tightly. If you really want something, then you must detach yourself from the outcome. Be process oriented, instead of outcome oriented. Pay attention to the journey, the destination will come.

Law of Dharma or Purpose in Life:
Everyone has a purpose. Find your unique talent by listening to your heart and your body. Play to your talents and reinforce other parts, to create balance and strength and flexibility.
