What happens if I decide to lead a consciously spiritual life?

If you decide to lead a consciously spiritual life, a change occurs. The principles of the operating system, which means the rules of creation, become personal. Let's take a look at how we can line up the universal with the personal:

  1. The universe is a mirror of consciousness.
  2. Awareness is collective. We all draw it from a common source.
  3. Awareness expands within itself.
  4. Consciousness creates by design.
  5. Physical laws operate efficiently, with least effort.
  6. Simple forms grow into more complex forms.
  7. Knowledge takes in more and more of the world.
  8. Evolution develops survival traits that perfectly match the environment.
  9. Chaos serves evolution.
  10. Many invisible levels are enveloped in the physical world.

  1. The events in your life reflect who you are.
  2. The people in your life reflect aspects of yourself.
  3. Whatever you pay attention to will grow.
  4. Nothing is random - your life is full of signs and symbols.
  5. At any given moment, the universe is giving you the best results possible.
  6. Your inner awareness is always evolving.
  7. The direction of life is from duality to unity.
  8. If you open yourself to the force of evolution, it will carry you where you want to go.
  9. The fragmented mind cannot get you to unity, but you have to use it along the way.
  10. You are living in many dimensions at once; the appearance of being trapped in time and space is an illusion.

These ten principles arguably represent ways to conceive of the operating system that keeps one reality going. In truth, the whole thing is inconceivable, and our brains aren't set up to operate on inconceivable lines. They can adapt, however, to living unconsciously. Every creature on earth is subject to the laws of nature; only humans think, "What does all this matter to me?" If you opt out and decide to live as if duality is real, you won't see that these ten principles have any bearing on you. The cosmic jokeis that the same laws will continue to uphold your life even though you don't recognize them.
