The law of least effort.

I take back my words. In my previous post, I wrote that I found nothing new in the blog post titled, "7 spiritual laws".

I am sorry I did not spot this Law of least effort earlier. Though the content under this headline is familiar to me, the title is very new and attractive to me. It is suggestive of it's content.

I read long back that too much effort will spoil the intention. I have fully realized it and started practicing the acceptance of the current situation or circumstance which may appear not conducive but the universe thought it differently. What seems to be good for you may not be so from the point of universe. There is a reason for every situation you are forced to face even though you don't like.

Here is an application written by the author of 7 spiritual laws.

  • ‘I will practice acceptance. Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. I will know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. I will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete. I accept things as they are this moment, not as I wish they were.’
  • ‘Today my awareness will remain established in Defenselessness. I will relinquish the need to defend my point of view. I will feel no need to convince or persuade others to accept my point of view. I will remain open to all points of view and not be rigidly attached to any one of them.’
Does this all make sense to you? Does it appeal to your reason?

Hi Malathy,

I just happened to come across this post of yours. Someone asked me this question a few months ago and I posted a reply at

Regarding what you mean about 'effort' spoiling the intention, my interpretation of that is when someone 'tries' or puts 'effort' into something it is not FROM a place of what they want, vibrationally, hence needing to 'be' something by 'trying' etc, my experience is the easiest way is by just 'being' and thinking/feeling FROM it.

Another way I'd define 'Law of Least Effort', at least my understanding of it anyway, is 'Path of Least Resistance' which I touch on in the post mentioned above.

I'd also like to say what a wonderful blog you have here, I'm enjoying resonating with it :)

Have a lovely day,

Dear Hemal,
Ah yes, the law of least effort-there was an argument, no, rather a discussion about it in my house after I posted the article.

Nobody really believed in it; they thought I am crazy.

Oh, let them have their fun of me.
