In The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Deepak Chopra combines physics, philosophy, spirituality, Eastern wisdom, and western science to provide a clear, complete, and universal guidebook to discovering your true potential.

The small book provides chapters on the following seven laws:

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

Each chapter discusses a law in a lucid discussion, followed by three practical steps to help live in harmony with the law. Deepak Chopra suggests that you contemplate and practice a spiritual law for each day of the week. To give you an example, here is an excerpt from 'The Law of "Dharma" or Purpose in Life'.

Discover your divinity, find your unique talent, serve humanity with it, and you can generate all the wealth that you want. When your creative expressions match the needs of your fellow humans, then wealth will spontaneously flow from the unmanifest into the manifest, from the realm of spirit to the world of form. You will begin to experience your life as a miraculous expression of divinity -- not just occasionally, but all the time. And you will know the true meaning of success -- the ecstasy and exultation of your own spirit.

Applying The Law of "Dharma"
or Purpose in Life

I will put the law of Dharma into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:

  1. Today I will lovingly nurture the god or goddess in embryo that lies deep within my soul. I will pay attention to the spirit within me that animates both my body and my mind. I will awaken myself to this deep stillness within my heart. I will carry this consciousness of timeless, eternal Being in the midst of time-bound experience.

  2. I will make a list of my unique talents. Then I will list all of the things I love to do while expressing my unique talents. When I express my unique talents and use them in the service of humanity, I lose track of time and create abundance in my life as well as in the lives of others.

  3. I will ask myself daily, "How can I serve?" and "How can I help?" The answers to these questions will allow me to help and serve my fellow human beings with love.
