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”

The 1st Law of Spiritual Success – Pure Potentiality – We’re In An Abundant Vibration – How To Access It! – Part 1

“You are what your deep, driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.” – Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 

Today I am moved to complete the series of posts on Deepak Chopra’s magnificent 82-page book, entitled The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, climaxing with my interpretation of the Law of Pure Potentiality. 

I am both so moved by this principle that I have more content than I can share in one post.  I, therefore, have divided the post on The Spiritual Law of Pure Potentiality into two parts.

The posts will complete my discussion of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.  Just as I have reread Deepak’s book for many years, I have no doubt that I will revisit these laws in future posts.  Outside of being an honor student in ‘the school of hard knocks’, reading this book had the greatest positive impact on my spiritual growth and self-actualization.

I highly recommend that you read or reread this book!


9 Characteristics of Self-Actualized People – By Kendra Cherry – Updated November 27, 2018

In psychology, self-actualization is achieved when you’re able to reach your full potential. Being truly self-actualized is considered the exception rather than the rule since most people are working to meet more pressing needs.

  1. They Have Peak Experiences – They Have feelings of limitless horizons
  2. They Possess Self-Acceptance and a Democratic World View – They fully accept themselves. They also embrace other people for who they are
  3. They Are Realistic
  4. They Tend to Be Problem-Centered – They are motivated by a strong sense of personal ethics and responsibility.
  5. The Self-Actualized Person Is Autonomous – They don’t conform to other people’s ideas of happiness or contentment
  6. They Enjoy Solitude and Privacy – Taking time to themselves is essential for their personal discovery and cultivating their potential.
  7. They Have a Philosophical Sense of Humor – They have a thoughtful sense of humor.
  8. Self-Actualized People Are Spontaneous – They tend to be open, unconventional, and spontaneous.
  9. They Fully Enjoy the Journey, Not Just the Destination

Justin7LawsI have been writing and speaking about the truths described in this book for about 20 years.  I passionately embrace its spiritual philosophy and strive to live closer to embodying perfection in it every day.

Here is a photo of the inside cover of my tattered version of the book.  This copy was meant for my nephew who was in jail at the time, and who had repeatedly made bad decisions.  He was in his 20’s at the time.

I remember explaining the principles to him, but I guess I forgot to give him the book.  I found it one day when packing to relocate, either from San Antonio, Texas to New Orleans, Louisiana or from New Orleans to Denver, Colorado.

Just as sincerely as I intended to present this book to him, I now present it to you with the same message, typed below.

But I will only break down my interpretation of this spiritual law after explaining my process for writing poems, songs, stories, or posts.  Armed with an understanding of my creative process, my words may become more vivid to you.

“If you read this book very carefully, word by word, and read it until you understand it, your life can be changed positively, forever.  Try to be open and receptive to the message.  It will begin the transformation process.  You can do this!  Just choose to turn your life around!” – Luv Kevy

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.
