Law of Least Effort

The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly shaken the very core of human life and revealed certain aspects human fragility and incompetence to cope with such situations. It includes that the science and powerful leaders of the nations do not have all the answers that we expected them to have. 

When we look back to the forgone years, what do we feel? Was it a period of learning? We are unable to accept the realities through which many of us have gone through. Can we count the blessings of the year in spite of the harsh moments that it provided? Or should we look only in to the problems?

The Book “The Seven Spiritual Law of Success” is one of the best sellers of Deepak Chopra. In this book he explains about Seven Laws of Success.  I was impressed with the point “Law of Least effort.” He says that if we observe our nature at work, we will see that least effort is given for its functioning. Grass doesn’t try to grow, it just grows. Fish doesn’t try to swim, it just swims. Flowers don’t try to bloom, they bloom. Birds don’t try to fly, they fly. The earth doesn’t try to spin on its own axis, it is the nature of the earth to spin with distilling speed and to hurtling through space. It is the nature of babies to be in bliss. It is the nature of the sun to shine. It is the nature of the stars glitter and sparkle. And it is human nature to make a dream manifest into physical form easily and effortlessly. This is their inherent nature.  Nature’s intelligence functions effortless, frictionless, and spontaneous!

Nature is held together by the energy of love. Least effort is given when actions are motivated by love. When our actions are motivated by love there is no waste of energy, but our energy multiplies and accumulates and the surplus energy can be channeled to create any thing that we want.

There are two components to do less and accomplish more. First component is acceptance. It means we accept people, situation and experience. Accept things as they are at this moment, not as we wish they are. Secondly take responsibility for all those situations that we found as problems. Taking responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for my situation. Every problem is an opportunity in disguise. So, let us take each experience as learning. Let us count the blessings of the past years. As nature’s intelligence functions effortless, frictionless and spontaneous, let us move with the nature.
