If you decide to lead a consciously spiritual life, a change occurs. The principles of the operating system, which means the rules of creation, become personal.
Let’s take a look at how we can line up the universal with the personal:
Universal: The universe is a mirror of consciousness.
Personal: The events of your life reflect who you are.
Universal: Awareness is collective. We all draw it from a common source.
Personal: The people in your life reflect aspects of yourself.
Universal: Awareness expands within itself.
Personal: Whatever you pay attention to will grow.
Universal: Consciousness creates by design.
Personal: Nothing is random—your life is full of signs and symbols.
Universal: Physical laws operate efficiently, with least effort.
Personal: At any given moment, the universe is giving you the best results possible.
Universal: Simple forms grow into more complex forms.
Personal: Your inner awareness is always evolving.
Universal: Knowledge takes in more and more of the world.
Personal: The direction of life is from duality to unity.
Universal: Evolution develops survival traits that perfectly match the environment.
Personal: If you open yourself to the force of evolution, it will carry you where you want to go.
Universal: Chaos serves evolution.
Personal: The fragmented mind cannot get you to unity, but you have to use it along the way.
Universal: Many invisible levels are enveloped in the physical world.
Personal: You are living in many dimensions at once; the appearance of being trapped in time and space is an illusion.
