“An integral being knows without going,
sees without looking,
and accomplishes without doing.”
If you observe nature at work, you will see that least effort is expended. Grass doesn’t try to grow, it just grows. The earth doesn’t try to spin on its own axis; it is the nature of the earth to spin with dizzying speed and to hurtle through space. It is the nature of babies to be in bliss. It is the nature of the sun to shine. It is the nature of the stars to glitter and sparkle. And it is human nature to make our dreams manifest into physical form, easily and effortlessly.
In Vedic science, this principle is known as the principle of economy of effort, or “do less and accomplish more.” Nature’s intelligence functions effortlessly, frictionlessly, spontaneously. It is non-linear; it is intuitive, holistic and nourishing. And when you are in harmony with nature, when you are established in the knowledge of your true self, you can make use of the Law of Least Effort.
Least effort is expended when your actions are motivated by love, because nature is held together by the energy of love. When you seek power and control over other people, you waste energy. When you seek money or power for the sake of ego, you spend energy chasing the illusion of happiness instead of enjoying happiness in the moment. When you seek money for personal gain only, you cut off the flow of energy to yourself, and interfere with the expression of nature’s intelligence. But when your actions are motivated by love, your energy multiplies and accumulates - and the surplus energy you gather and enjoy can be channeled to create anything that you want, including unlimited wealth. When your internal reference is your spirit and not your ego, when you are immune to criticism and unfearful of any challenge, you can use energy creatively for the experience of affluence and evolution.
Most of our energy goes into upholding our importance. If we are capable of losing some of that importance, we would free our energy from trying to maintain the illusory idea of our grandeur and would provide ourselves with enough energy to catch a glimpse of the actual grandeur of the Universe.
So make a commitment today to follow a path of no resistance. This is the path through which nature’s intelligence unfolds spontaneously, without friction or effort. When you have the exquisite combination of acceptance and responsibility you will experience life flowing with effortless ease.
