The Law of Pure Potentiality Part 4

Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

As you gain more and more access to your nature, you will also spontaneously receive creative thoughts because the field of pure potentiality is also the field of infinite creativity and pure knowledge. Franz Kafka, the Austrian philosopher and poet, once said,

"You need not leave your room. Remain sitting on your table and listen. You need not even listen, simply wait. You need not even wait, just learn to become quiet, and still, and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no choice; it will roll ecstasy at your feet."

The affluence of the universe- the lavish display and abundance of the universe- is an expression of the creative mind of nature. The more tuned in you are to the mind of nature, the more you have access to its infinite, unbounded creativity. But first, you have to go beyond the turbulence of your internal dialogue to connect with that abundant, affluent, infinitive, creative mind. And then you create the possibility of dynamic, bounded, individual mind is the perfect balance of stillness and movement simultaneously that can create whatever you want. This coexistence of opposites- stillness and dynamism at the same time- makes you independent of situations, circumstances, people and things.

When you quietly acknowledge this exquisite coexistence of opposites, you align yourself with the world of energy- the quantum soup, the non material non stuff that is the source of the material world. This world of energy is fluid, dynamic, resilient, changing, forever in motion. And yet it is also non- changing, still, quiet, eternal, and silent.

Stillness alone is the potentiality for creativity; movement alone is creativity restricted to a certain aspect of its expression. But the combination of movement and stillness enables you to unleash your creativity in all directions- wherever the power of your attention takes you.

Wherever you go in the midst of movement and activity, carry your stillness within you. Then the chaotic movement around you will never overshadow your access to the reservoir of creativity, the field of pure potentiality.


I will put the Law of Pure Potentiality into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps.

  1. "I will get in touch with the field of pure potentiality by taking time each day to be silent, to just Be. I will also sit alone in silent meditation at least twice a day for approximately thirty minutes in the morning and thirty minutes in the evening.

  2. I will take time each day to commune with nature and to silently witness the intelligence within every living thing. I will sit silently and watch a sunset, or listen to the sound of the ocean or a stream, or simply smell the scent of a flower. In the ecstasy of my own silence, and by communing with nature, I will enjoy the lire throb of ages, the field of pure potentiality and unbounded creativity.

  3. I will practice non- judgement. I will begin my day with the statement, "Today I shall judge nothing that occurs," and throughout the day I will remind myself not to judge.
