Cosmic Principles are universal tenets that apply to most of our situations in life. They are a set of guidelines in the way we plan our lives, the way we relate to others, our attitudes and values towards rapidly changing circumstances, how we decide on critical options that will make or break us and others around us.
THE SEVEN COSMIC PRINCIPLES 1 THE INNER BALANCE (EQUILIBRIUM) PRINCIPLE inner balance is freedom from fame and glory and ego from insecurities and fears freedom to be humiliated and come out on top inner balance is courage during crisis loving when everyone is hating whispering when everyone is screaming being able to withstand violent storms and come out stronger inner balance between yielding and insisting between prayer and action heat cancels out cold and vice versa love cancels out hate and vice versa yin or darkness cancels out yang or light they either clash or blend or achieve harmony or conflict 2 THE EGO-SUPER-EGO PRINCIPLE we are made up of two spiritual parts the ego and the super-ego the ego seeks its own gain the super-ego seeks the gain of others the ego and the super-ego are constantly at war one seeks to love, the other to be loved the ego breeds wars the super-ego breeds harmony the Lord nurtures our super-ego and dispels our ego 3 THE LOVE PRINCIPLE you can discover yourself only by discovering another for the other is a mirror of yourself and you are opaque to yourself look inward and get lost look outward and discover give and you are satisfied get and you want some more look inward and you see total darkness look outward and you see blinding light 4 THE PEACE PRINCIPLE war begins with grabbing peace begins with giving compromise breeds harmony non-compromise breeds conflict war begins when people no longer talk to each other peace begins when people are open and listen shout so you will be ignored whisper so they will listen listen to know the other’s view before you give your view 5 THE WISDOM PRINCIPLE taking the backstage breeds wisdom taking the limelight breeds ignorance meditation begins with no thoughts confusion with many thoughts too much effort, you miss the shot no effort, you make the shot too much planning, you miss your goal no planning is sometimes the best plan what the heart sees so plainly the mind is often blind to what the Lord hides from the wise He reveals to little children 6 THE PERSPECTIVE PRINCIPLE perspective is power when you see on a clear day the verdant valley from a mountain top you see who you are if your heart is kind you can see forever you see better in darkness darkness gives understanding of the light forget about your eyes see with your heart forget about your ears listen with your soul 7 THE ENERGY PRINCIPLE do not resist flow with the wind do not grasp touch lightly learn the way of the wild flowers they grow without working or spinning we use only about a tenth of our brain energy if we tap the rest our mind power can lift spoons and discern harmony when all is chaos and gain insight when all are confused
