This is Very Personal – The Prayers That I Say – Some I’ve Written – Others, I’ve Rewritten

And The Ones That I’ve Written

Years ago, I was asked by a customer at Whole Foods Market what type of meditation do I do, after she shared with me that she meditates. I used to meet a lot of customers who meditate at Whole Foods. That’s because there is an obvious correlation between being healthy and being holy.

I am always challenged when I am asked how I meditate. Most people who ask this, have been professionally trained or studied a particular method on their own, and can quickly provide their type. I can’t.  I guess I could say mindfulness.  I can’t be specific namely, because my method is a hybrid form of meditation that evolved organically for me, beginning over 30 years ago.

Though I meditate, it is very rare that I would meditate, and not pray also. They go hand and hand for me. There is one exception, one which I experience when I receive acupuncture.  I practice meditation when I receive Acupuncture, but I do not pray in this meditation. In this meditation, I don’t recite an affirmation or say anything. I simply visualize until my senses go beyond the needles, moxibustion, and even an itch.  …or an urge to pee.

Otherwise, I pray even when I call it meditation.

Guest Affirmations Blogger – Treasure Curry – ||35||: 20 QUOTES FOR HIGH VIBRATIONS – Fellow Bloggers Let’s Feature Each Other Like I’m Featuring Treasure!

Kevy’s Comment

Yesterday I reviewed the blogs of several of my followers.  I follow them as well.  I found that we are connected in several ways, namely in perspective on life, love, and spirituality, just by reading their posts.  I posted comments to several of the posts that inspired me and asked their permission to feature them on my site.

Treasure Curry was one of those bloggers who I’ve decided to feature today. 

As I mentioned in a post comment, I no longer hold on to old relationships that don’t vibe with who I am today just because of history or tradition.  Many of those relationships were simply held together by kinship, religion, race, or class, but not by spiritual connection.  None of these things have to do with my true spirit, my true essence. 

Therefore, in these crucial times, I have abandoned many relationships, including family ones, that do not elevate my spirit.  Instead, I find adventure in meeting new kindred spirits randomly, such as Treasure Curry’s.

Her post, on keeping our vibration high, caught my eye because in my post on Pure Potentiality, I emphasized elevating to a higher vibration.  Treasure’s post highlights 20 quotes for keeping our vibration high.  I enjoy each of them.  She gave me permission to feature her post, and to feature her.

The Spiritual Law of Pure Potentiality From A Black Man – Everything That U Desire Is Already There In The Field of Potentiality – 4 Ways To Connect With It

The Spiritual Law of Pure Potentiality is Deepak Chopra’s first law.  I prefer this law as the last one, though.  This law instructs us on how to manifest our desires.  Its rules are simple to follow.  There are only 4 steps to access the field of potentiality. 

But I place this law last because it has been easier for me to achieve after I’ve achieved the other Spiritual Laws (Giving, Karma, Least Effort, Intention & Desire, and Dharma).  Your approach may be different.  I still recommend reading the entire book (The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success), each chapter in order.  Later, you will inevitably refer back to it.  Then, you may read any chapter that you require, in your preferred order, as the time requires.

I blog about this book often.  I do so because it changed my life when spirit was summoning me to change with the seasons.  I have referred to it for over 20 years.  I also share it because I believe that, though many will be skeptical, there are some who will be receptive to reading it.  My hope is that their lives will be changed as mine has been.

Devirusize – Take Off Your Shoes! – You Should Hit The Ground After Reading This Post! – It Will Give U Access To Calm, Healing & Love – When U Need It Most – Practice Grounding & Earthing

Grounding

I am back with a new post and this is a really important one.

This represents a new element to the Devirusize protocol.  “Devirusize” is a word I that invented in order categorize my suggestions for making your body optimally healthy.  On my blog, search the word “Devirusize” to find other related posts.

This element of optimal wellness is on Earthing or Grounding.  I am unsure, but I would imagine that Earthing’s distinction is that in addition to grounding, it includes hugging trees, sitting, or standing in water, or on rocks.  Grounding involves intimate contact with the ground, preferably while barefoot.

It has taken me quite some time to pull this post together because, as with all my posts, I include a lot of content.  And I research and dig into each subject, reviewing all of the included videos.  This process is not just a labor of love, because I become well-versed in many areas of living from doing so.

This grounding thing is amazing!  I want everybody to look into!  It doesn’t cost you anything and if you really get into it, even if you spend money on devices, you’ll find that it’s not extremely expensive compared to the benefit that you get from grounding.

First of all, I ground all the time.  I’ll do it today.  I am doing it frequently because I am expecting Colorado’s winter.  Believe it or not, it snowed here about two weeks ago.  Three days later, it was 85°.

This the post includes me recording myself while grounding, just to give you an idea of how I feel when I am grounding.  …To let you see what I am seeing.  In addition to my own video, I include other videos on grounding from experts, with supporting scientific evidence.  In fact, there’s US government research that says grounding helps with inflammation and cancer and all sorts of diseases and dis-ease.  It is unbelievable that enough people don’t know about grounding and practice it regularly!

Spiritual Vs Religious – Oh Yea I’m Going There – Religious Drama – They Should Have Listened To Their Momma – 15+ Reasons Why I Question Religious Drama

If you have reviewed at least a few of my over 200 blog posts (and now podcasts) you would clearly know that I am not a big fan of organized religion.

Like many people, I have adopted the position of being spiritual, but not religious. At times, I despise religion. …Too much drama. I am amazingly comfortable with my position until I am changed in mind (through experience and research) and spirit (through God’s intervention).

In this post, I reveal 15+ reasons why I shy away from Religion and Religious Drama. Some of the most negative experiences that I’ve had were with Religious people. …Ones who judge about what I would call minor sins such as using profanity, eating pork, or being too proud, while they blatantly violate in worst ways.

As I am judged by them, I could think of a plethora of violations that they make, “In the name of Jesus/Allah”. I don’t tell them directly. I tell them in general through my creative, written, and media works. But I admit that it is a bit frustrating.

I try my best to stay clear of these types of people, though they seem to be drawn to me. I simply respect their beliefs (for them) but fully exercise my right to free will and thought. They spit on me with scripture, while I realize that the bible has 900 versions, and the Quran has 30. I consider that there are missing books, slavery’s influence, and man’s interpretation, depriving me of mine. I am not sure that they realize this.

The Law of Giving & Receiving – Notice No “S” – It’s One Law With 2 Parts – We Have 1 Hand For Giving & 1 Hand For Receiving – We Must Use Both Hands To Get The Law Right! – Let Me Explain

This post is on the Spiritual Law of Giving & Receiving, taken from Deepak Chopra’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, that I read over 20 years ago.

The principles presented in this short book are as dear to me as are the bible’s principles. I have distributed copies of this book to others around the world. I live by all seven of its principles.

If you read this book (less than 90 pages), you can get a good idea as to how my spiritual mind works. You will see its principles reflected in my posts and opinions. It is reflected in how I live. It especially influences how I give. It includes a chapter devoted to Giving & Receiving on which I will explain in this post.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

Deepak’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success was very instrumental in my spiritual transformation. It explains spiritual principles in multi-metaphysical dimensions. It presents spirituality scientifically, astrologically, psychologically, emotionally, and practically, while I perceive the bible as not being as multidimensional. The book does not contradict the bible, though, it expands it. Every principle can be associated with biblical principles. I suggest that you read it as I have many times.

I have wanted to write this post for months now, but could not muster up the creative energy to do so. I may appear to have it all together, based on the content that I create, but I have flaws and bad days just like everyone else. I practice and passionately believe wholeheartedly in the perspectives I share, but that does not mean that I do not experience seasons in my life like everyone else.

God’s Purpose For UR Life Is Imprinted On UR Heart – Deepak’s Spiritual Law of Dharma Shows U How To Discover UR True Self – UR True Purpose

In today’s turbulent times it would be prudent to go within to examine yourself.  There is something very beautifully unique about each of us that we must discover and share with the world.

Now is the time to calibrate our spirits, fine-tune our vibrations.  This is something over which we have complete control, unlike our uncertain future, given today’s racial protests and the coronavirus pandemic.

Tuning the spirit is the most that we can do to prepare ourselves for what may come, which is an unknown.  Though what awaits us is a mystery, we would be better prepared to rest on a strong identity of self and a fortified spiritual foundation than not.

I am basking in the joy of having elevated my spirit years ago.  During today’s Racial Revolution and COVID19 pandemic, I have not been fearful.  In fact, my creativity and energy have been elevated, as well.  For me, it is an exciting time.  In contrast, I see a correlation between those not in touch with their inner spirit and being fearful, worried, and physically unhealthy.

This post is based on the principles in the book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, by Deepak Chopra.  Today we focus on the Spiritual Law of Dharma.  Dharma is your purpose in life.  This law requires that we find life’s purpose for the spiritual embryo within ourselves and pursue it with vigor.

When I first reintroduced the Seven Spiritual Laws series, I adapted it for the crisis of the day, which was only the coronavirus pandemic.  I only covered one of the spiritual laws so far, The Law of Detachment.  I took the liberty of rearranging the order of Deepak Chopra’s laws because they work in order, individually and in mixed order when you practice them regularly.

Deepak Don’t Throw Shade – I Just Gave UR 7 Spiritual Laws Swag! – Kevy’s 1st Law Of Detachment – The Corona Remix – Law On Not Letting Corona Freak U Out

“Action without attachment is the secret to a life without stress” – Deepak Chopra

I hope that Deepak doesn’t hate me for bastardizing the order and interpretation of the original Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.  Today I begin with the first of seven posts, one for each law. 

This post is on ‘my first’ law, The Law of Detachment.

I say ‘my first law’ because, this is not Deepak’s first law.  I chose the Law of Detachment first because it highlights a key virtue for enduring through the Coronavirus pandemic.  It is expressed in the quote above, being detached from outcomes, is the key to living a stress-free life.  With regard to the pandemic, we should simply trust God and be unattached to fear and worry about what will happen.  That is the Lord’s job, not ours.  The other six laws are equally important, but not as the first law, in my opinion.

I don’t believe that Deepak will be upset with me bedazzling the principles.  Hating is not his nature.  Besides, in this small life-transforming book Deepak asks readers to share the seven principles with others.  I am doing so now with you.


The Seven Spiritual Laws of SuccessDeepak Chopra’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, resonated with me so well that I took heed to each of the laws as I started implementing them in my life over 20 years ago. I was so astonished by these simple laws of living, that I shared the “good news” with everyone who I felt would be receptive.

I’ve given copies of the book in Costa Rica, South Africa, Europe, and other countries, including here in the States. I’ve given the book to friends, family, and complete strangers, in person, and through the blog and on social media.

Needless to say, I am all but evangelically about the message in this less than a 100-page book. Continue reading “Deepak Don’t Throw Shade – I Just Gave UR 7 Spiritual Laws Swag! – Kevy’s 1st Law Of Detachment – The Corona Remix – Law On Not Letting Corona Freak U Out”

“Love Is Starving For Itself” – It Needs Love Today! – Send URs Right Away – Hate’s Going ‘Round – So Don’t Delay

I believe that God inspired my thought to post about Love today.  I am not being as self-important as this may sound. 

Most people do believe that God created the universe.  We may differ on exactly who God is, or if the name is really God, but most of us agree that man did not create the universe.  That is outstanding that most of us can surrender our egos to a higher power.

Most believe that some entity, character, energy, spirit, or vibration created the universe, and therefore created us.

So, if “God” created us, and if we believe in “God”, then we must believe that “God” guides us, inspires us, sends us messages and visions.

God sent me a vision to create this post.  It occurred, as it usually does when I was jogging the other day.  I listened to Stevie Wonder’s album Songs In The Key Of Life.  I was mesmerized by the song Love’s In Need of Love Today.  I was in awe over all of the songs on this album, but especially this song.


 “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” – Lao Tzu


The lyrics and artistry deliver a compelling-needed message, in a most bone-chilling way.  I am sure that God gives Stevie Wonder such visions too.  Stevie said himself, on one of the video performances below the “Love is starving for itself”.  I liked it so much, I used in the title.

Love is starving for attention.  Fear, panic, and uncertainty is causing hate to go ‘round, breaking many hearts.  And, we must stop this, before it’s gone too far!    Continue reading ““Love Is Starving For Itself” – It Needs Love Today! – Send URs Right Away – Hate’s Going ‘Round – So Don’t Delay”

Law of Pure Potentiality – Kevy’s Experience In The Field of Pure Potentiality – Fighting The Gravity Of Life – Part 2

“The experience the Self or “self-referral”, means that our internal reference point is our own spirit, and not the objects of our experience. – Deepak Chopra – Washington Post

7 Laws of Spiritual SuccessThe spiritual Law of Pure Potentiality requires that we reach our essential state of pure consciousness.  The field of pure potentiality is an abundant spiritual influence, and in our essential state, we become our spiritual selves and are therefore granted access to God’s horn of plenty.

The law of Pure Potentiality recognizes that there is one divine spirit that connects us all, including nature, in spite of our seemingly infinite diversity. The only thing that separates us from the field is not knowing or experiencing our true nature, not embracing God in us all.

Discovering our soul should be our greatest desire for in this discovery, we are granted access to healing, wisdom, virtue, and many blessings, in the field of pure potentiality.

Experiencing and knowing our true self is critical to the law.  Our reference point must be on our own spirit, not anything external to us.  This is important because it requires relinquishing control from our egos, and seeking God within us.  This lens connects us to the God of the universe.

This means that our life experiences should never be influenced by objects outside the Self, such situations, circumstances, people, and things, seeking approval of others, or response to our every action.  Living this way fear-based.  Living in fear never has beneficial consequences.  Living in fear is like living without trusting God.

In self-referral, we become unfearful of any challenge, have respect for all people, but feel beneath no one. Self-power is therefore true power.  Power based on object-referral (external things), however, is false power.

Self-power is eternal because it is based on the knowledge of the Self.  It will draw people to you, as well as the things that you desire. It magnetizes people, situations, and circumstances to support your desires.

“This is also called support from the laws of nature. It is the support of divinity; it is the support that comes from being in the state of grace. Your power is such that you enjoy a bond with people, and people enjoy a bond with you. Your power is that of bonding – a bonding that comes from true love.” – Deepak Chopra

Deepak Chopra’s Seven Laws of Spiritual Success

I held off for some time before completing the series on The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, a life-changing book by Deepak Chopra that I first read about 20 years ago.  This book is my favorite spiritual guidance go-to!  I have read it several times and have distributed copies to people around the world.  I can say that I strive to live by each of the seven principles in this book.

That Thing U Do Is Like No Other – Karma Must Have Led U To UR Dharma

The Spiritual Law of Dharma

dharma I am finding greater happiness each day now that I am pursuing my passion for writing. 

I know that writing, creative communications, as well as, seeking and propagating what I see as truth are my passions.  I know because I can’t stop thinking about them.  Ideas pop into my head throughout the day, and in the middle of the night.  I spend hours each day at the computer posting and researching, often not getting much sleep, and letting eating totally skip my mind.

One of the biggest indicators that I am pursuing my purpose, is when I lose all senses of space and time.  This happens when I’m are deep into an effort, and look at my watch and surprisingly notice that 6 hours have passed, when it seemed like only an hour.

Another indicator is not being able to pull away from a project of passion.  Like everyone, I have hundreds of items to get to on my task list.  But I always gravitate to that same ole task, diligently working it, ignoring the others.  No matter how far behind I may get on other ‘to do’s’, I repeatedly go back to the one task that gives me the most joy.

These repeated escapes from reality into manifesting my vision is an indicator that I may have discovered or am discovering my Dharma. 

Dharma is our purpose in life, with the belief that we were all created with a unique talent or ability to offer to the world. 

But it’s not a passion that is pursued blindly.  It is pursuit while adhering to other spiritual laws, and doing so with a sincere intention to help others, with this special talent or ability.

The reason that finding your purpose in life is so important, is that finding your purpose is synonymous with finding happiness.  We’re all meant to be happy, and finding our Dharma is the only path to lasting happiness.

So, follow your Dharma no matter what it is, no matter how much you may get discouraged.

Remember, living your Dharma is the only way to optimal and permanent happiness.

The Spiritual Law Of Detachment – Is Not Detachment From Life – You’re Just Detached from Outcomes

“In detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty . . . in the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past, from the known, which is the prison of past conditioning.

And in our willingness to step into the unknown, the field of all possibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.” – Deepak Chopra

7 Laws of Spiritual Success

Please keep in mind, as you read my posts, that I only share those things that I sincerely believe in, and/or practice. Some posts on life virtues, spirituality, and health are topics on which I believe and plan to practice or am getting better at practicing.

In every case, what I post, relates to my life as Kevy Michaels. I have practiced the Law of Detachment for over 20 years and passionately believe in it.

Deepak Chopra’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, resonated with me so well that I took heed to each of the laws as I started implementing them in my life over 20 years ago. I was so astonished by these simple laws of living, that I shared the “good news” with everyone who I felt would be receptive.

I’ve given a copy of the book in Costa Rica, South Africa, Europe, and many other countries, including here in the states. I’ve given the book to friends, family, and complete strangers.

Needless to say, I am all but evangelically about the messages contained in this short 100-page or so book.

I share it with you now because I care, and I am of a loving and generous nature. I will share these principles until the day that I leave this earth, with the hope that some or all of the laws will resonate with you, and perhaps lead you towards your spiritual transformation.

Please note that The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success is not the kind of book you read once, and ‘get it’. It will take reading it multiple times, over many years to come. I have read it umpteen times. I just read the chapter on Detachment twice, in preparation for this post.


The Law of Detachment is very powerful! It simply states that with good intentions and desires, we should pursue our dreams, but must be detached from the outcome.

This law requires the ultimate in trust. ….Trusting God to deliver the rest.

I know that this law works, as I have experienced many examples in my life.

Karma Is Not An Eye-For-An-Eye Girl, She’s Considerate, and Much Deeper Than That

The Spiritual Law of Karma

I believe in Karma. 

“I see the law of Karma the way I look at banking.  I make as many deposits as possible, and few withdrawals from the Karmic Bank.  Eventually, my balance increases, and I’m paid with dividends and interest.” – Kevy Michaels

I choose to believe in it because this belief steers my life’s journey in a divine direction. 

It reminds me that there is an effect to every cause, consequences to every action. 

Without this God-driven gauge, in some variation, I would always do whatever my egos tell me to, without regard.  Navigating towards divine wisdom is not a good job for my ego. 

I explained how I found a better job for my ego, in the post Unemployment’s Low! – Even My Ego Has A Job Now!  

The law of Karma is a better navigator for my life because Karma is driven by my soul, which naturally gravitates toward divine spirit.  The links and videos will explain this statement below.

For now, try to embrace the concept of Karma is being a divinely guided mechanism that corrects our lives.


Many people believe in Karma, but most don’t fully understand the concept, like me, until I did an analysis of this spiritual law, using various sources for guidance. 

I will attempt to present nuanced differences in how most people generally regard Karma, and what I found, and believe to be true today, after having done my analysis on the topic.  I’ve provided a good bit of links for you to dig deeper.

Just 5 Steps Will Guide You to Your Intentions & Desires 

Identify What You Want, Why, then Release It

The Law of Intention and Desire is one of Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws that resonated with me, more than I had realized, until I read and researched it, in preparation for this post.

For those of you who have read the book, you may realize that I have not been following the order in which the seven laws are presented. This is intentional.

Though I agree with the order of the laws as presented, especially with the first one being The Law of Pure Potentiality¸ I post in accordance with where my reflections, prayer, and meditations lead me, on that day. This may cause a bit of confusion, when one law builds on another, on which I have not covered. I intentionally try to buffer this from happening, by breaking the laws down into, hopefully, easy to understand elements. When appropriate, I also relate to applying or not applying the law to my real-life experiences.

Most people who have read the Seven Spiritual Laws likely read it the first time in order, and many subsequent times, out of order based on what moved them. I read this book for the first time over 20 years ago and have read it, and passed it out, around the world, many times.

Though I will cover all of the laws, in my chosen order, here is the order in which they are presented in Deepak’s book:

  1. Pure Potentiality
  2. Giving
  3. Karma or Cause and Effect
  4. Least Effort
  5. Intention & Desire
  6. Detachment
  7. Dharma or Purpose in Life

This post focuses on the Law of Intention and Desire.

The Law of Least Effort Is Da Bomb! – Can I Really Do Nothing & Receive Everything?

One of Kevy’s Favorite Spiritual Laws – From The 7 Laws of Spiritual Success – The Law of Least Effort

The Law of Least Effort is one of Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws that resonates with me as much as The Law of Giving and Receiving.

It doesn’t resonate with me because I live it exquisitely. I am still trying to perfect practicing it. Some parts are very challenging, given my circumstance. What excites me about this spiritual law is that, after reading Deepak Chopra’s 7 Spiritual Laws of Success multiple times, I finally understand it. I ‘git it’ now!

This law states that you will attain those things that you desire when you put the least effort into attaining them. This sounds nonsensical, I know. But, the law makes a lot of sense when you dig deeper.

It does not mean that you can be lazy and sit on your seat cushions, and that blessing will knock on the door and say, “It is I. I am here to bless you”. You certainly need to work hard to overcome your challenges and to reach your goals, but what is more powerful than work alone, is harnessing the powers of God and the universe.

In harnessing this energy, we will expel less foolishly. When striving to reach a goal, simply put, get closer to God, and further away from directly challenging the obstacle before you.

This law requires: Acceptance, Taking Responsibility, and Defenselessness.

The Spiritual Law of Giving and Receiving

7 Laws of Spiritual Success

The Law of Giving and Receiving is one of Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws that resonates with me most. It resonated with me so deeply some 20 years ago when I read his book because I thought of all spiritual practices, I surely had this one correct. I freely gave for most of my life. I remember giving gifts to my teacher in the third grade, and to a girl in the neighborhood, Cheryl Neal, just because giving felt good, and the smile that I received in return was priceless.

There could be no possible way that I had this law wrong because I was the type of person who would give the shirt off of my back. In the late 1990s to the early 2000’s, during the Y2K scam, I came into vast amounts of money, working as a traveling systems consultant, a road warrior. Since I had little social time, I ‘did it up’ on the weekends.

All of the friends around me seemed to wait for my return anxiously, for they knew that I was a free giver, and I had money. During this period, though I made a few million dollars. I would use my debit card, and had over $ 50 K in only one of my checking accounts! In spite, I didn’t have much to show for it. I paid for others’ international trips, cars, extravagant gifts, concerts, loans, you name it.

I did not really give with expectation. Well, at least I thought I didn’t. I just gave to be nice. I really didn’t need all that money.  But in reality, I had this entire law all wrong.

I gave mainly because I wanted others to like me. I wanted my family to love me. So, I kept priming the pump. It got me into trouble, though.

In an effort to prove, ‘that I didn’t forget where I came from’, I supplied and funded what friends desired so that my weekends were not empty. That would ultimately lead to me being the one to buy the drugs, weed, coke, and alcohol.  I was giving, with the intent of gaining acceptance.  It destroyed a season in my life until I got wise to the Law of Giving and Receiving. That was over 15 years ago.

Ironically, the same people, including family, who betrayed me or turned their backs on me in the end, when I was either sick or experiencing trials, were the same ones to whom I gave to so generously. That really hurt, and it caused me to go to the other extreme of becoming reclusive, and less trusting for a period.  I am still pretty cautious in that regard.

Though I thought I gave without expectation, I was expecting something… acceptance and love. Sometimes, I expected praise or an expression of gratitude for being so generous but didn’t even receive a thank you.

The exception was with my mother, and with God. I gave to her and God, expecting nothing in return. In both cases, I felt as though I had already received their blessings and that I was actually repaying them. I guess that’s why in these scenarios, I received so much more in return, mainly wisdom and knowledge, and this minor thing call transformation.

The biggest part of my thinking about the Law of Giving and Receiving that I had incorrect, was believing that Giving and Receiving are separate acts. They are not separate, and the law only works if you do both. I gave freely, but, I thought it was kind to not receive, gracious even. But I was breaking this law, and stunting my flow. I didn’t realize this like most people probably don’t.

In one of the articles below, it refers to Giving and Receiving as depending on each other. They are both seasons, within the same flow of spiritual energy. I find this to be true.  So, I knew that I had to humble myself to receive, while still generously giving.

The post went further to state that there is no receiving, only giving, for when one gives to another, the receiver gives a proper place or use for the gift given. Both parties are actually giving.  That’s an interesting way to look at it.

When I gave service to my mother as her sole caregiver, I did it right. By that time I was quite familiar with the law. I gave everything to her or up for her, without expectation: money, investments, business, credit, reputation, health, and peace of mind (battling my siblings), and I did not worry about the consequences. And, I received royally, gaining discernment on every virtue that I believe God admires.

In return, I was spiritually transformed, bestowed with priceless gifts.

Today, I keep Giving and Receiving united, practicing the law as I believe God desires. But I still recognize those who are like I once was or worse off.  Most people are Givers or Takers, but not both. Either can be disappointing.

So, what I now do, is take personalities out of the picture. Whoever I give to, I regard it as giving to God, giving to the universe, or as making a Karmic Deposit.

I see our deeds as either deposits or withdrawals from a Karmic or Spiritual bank.  I try to make deposits into this figurative bank account every day.  I rarely make withdrawals, but I am paid dividends and interests unexpectedly, usually when I need it most.  God is the comptroller of the Karmic Bank and decides when I Receive blessings.

I don’t give with expectation of any specific gift in return anymore.  I know that in doing so, I am in tune with all of the universe. I am part of the same exchange that nature participates in, as with the different cycles of weather, seasons, day and night, and all things that God has created.

Therefore, outside of the individuals or personalities involved in this exchange, I focus on what I Give and Receive from God and the universe, and know that according to law, it will be returned to me, ‘blessed and multiplied’.

The nature of Giving and Receiving – Metaphysics-for-Life.com

Like the symbol for infinity, giving and receiving are actually one thing with polarized or dualistic aspects. When you look at the symbol for infinity, and imagine energy flowing through it from one side to the other and back again, which side can you say is the giver? Which side is the receiver?

The answer is – they both are!

Giving cannot occur without a receiver. Receiving, therefore, is actually an act of giving. Receiving gives the act of giving someplace to go.

In truth, only giving exists. In the physical Universe, where we experience the illusion of separation, it appears that one person can give an object, such as money, and receive something in exchange, such as clothing or food.

If you examine this “exchange” closely, you will notice that the only action that occurs is giving. One gives money, and the other gives the money someplace to go. The other gives food or clothing, and the other gives the food and clothes someplace to go.

The need for exchange is created by the mind which believes the illusion of separation.

Giving & Receiving Verses from Virtually Every Faith – World Scripture – GIVING AND RECEIVING – Unification.Net

Passages in this section express the general spiritual principle of giving and receiving. When we give to one another, freely and without conditions, sharing our blessings with others and bearing each other’s burdens, the giving multiplies and we receive far more than what was given. Even when there is no immediate prospect of return, Heaven keeps accounts of giving, and in the end blessing will return to the giver, multiplied manyfold. We must give first; to expect to receive without having given is to violate the universal law. On the other hand, giving in order to receive–with strings attached, with the intention of currying favor, or in order to make a name for oneself–is condemned. See also The Golden Rule, pp. 172-74.

“Those who act kindly in this world will have kindness.” – Islam. Qur’an 39.10

“One must pour cold water on the ground before he can tread on soft soil.” – African Traditional Religions. Yoruba Proverb (Nigeria)

“Giving simply because it is right to give, without thought of return, at a proper time, in proper circumstances, and to a worthy person, is enlightened giving. Giving with regrets or in the expectation of receiving some favor or of getting something in return, is selfish giving.” – Hinduism. Bhagavad Gita 17.20-21

“I first began to understand the Law of Giving and receiving, after reading Deepak Chopra’s book, The Seven Laws of Spiritual Success. I have read this less than 100 page book and continually work to abide by these spiritual laws of the universe, or of God. I have passed copies of this book, as it requests, to many people in many countries.” In my opinion, this law is one of the most important of the seven laws. I will discuss the remaining six laws on future posts.” – Kevy

Poem

Give You

By Kevy Michaels

I could give you a new car

But eventually it will break down

I could adorn you like royalty

But the stones may fall from your crown

I could give you a cute puppy

But he may have to be put to sleep

What about a flat-screen TV?

Nowadays I can get ‘em cheap

I’d rather give the most valuable gift

That I could ever give to you

You will never have to fix it

It’ll always shine and remain like new

It will forever be with you

…Even after I’m gone

Anybody can give those other things

What I’m offer you, though, I offer alone

Even if I gave you a bunch of money

You and the money will surely part

So I’ll give a gift that will never leave you

The energy of Love

That’s coming straight from

My Heart
