The universe is an elegantly orchestrated symphony. When our body-mind is in concert with the universe. Everything becomes spontaneous and effortless and the exuberance of the universe flows through us in joyful ecstasy. This is the essence of the law of least effort. Trusting that everything in the universe is as it should be in perfect harmony. Knowing this we dance to the rhythm of the cosmos, living life in comfort knees, shedding the belief that abundance is the result of struggle.
The law of least effort tells us that we can do less and accomplish more. But first, we must practice acceptance. The more readily you accept the circumstances of your life as they are in this moment, the easier your life becomes. When you struggle against this moment, you're actually struggling against the entire universe, and while you may have the intention for your life to change in some way. Accepting it as it is right now, places you in the best position to attain your goals. We have likely all heard the maxim no pain no gain that we have to work diligently to achieve what we want in life. However, the law of least effort teaches us that when we act in harmony with nature, established in the knowledge of our true self, and motivated by love, we can create the success and good fortune we desire with effortless ease.
Today put the least effort into practice. Accept all people and circumstances in your life, exactly as they are. Take responsibility for your life without blaming yourself, knowing that everything is as it should be. Practice defenselessness and relinquish the need to convince or persuade others of your point of view. As we prepare to meditate together. Let's return our attention to today's centering thought: I expect and accept abundance to flow easily to me. I expect and accept abundance to flow easily to me.
Now let's begin. Please find a comfortable position, placing your hands lightly in your lap and closing your eyes. In this moment, go within to that place of inner quiet where we experience our connection to the higher self. Let go of all thoughts and begin to observe the inflow and outflow of your breath. With each inhalation and exhalation, allow yourself to become more relaxed, more comfortable, more at peace. Now, gently introduce today's Sanskrit mantra for the law of least effort. Repeating it mentally and allowing it to flow with effortless ease. Om Daksham Namah. Om Daksham Namah. My actions achieve maximal benefit with minimal effort.
Whenever you find yourself distracted by thoughts, sensations in your body, or noises in the environment, simply return your attention to mentally repeating the mantra. Om Daksham Namah
Please continue with your meditation. I'll mind the time and at the end, you'll hear me ring a soft bell to indicate it's time to release the mantra. Om Daksham Namah. Om Daksham Namah. (Bell ring) Begin..
(Bell ring) It's time to release the mantra. Please bring your awareness back into your body. Take a moment to rest, inhaling and exhaling slowly and deeply. When you feel ready, gently open your eyes. As you continue with your day, carry the sense of effortless ease with you reminding yourself of today's centering thought: I expect and accept abundance to flow easily to me. I expect and accept abundance to flow easily to me.
I expect and accept abundance to flow easily to me. Namaste.
