The power of universal principles
The seven principles function as a powerful growth compass. You can use them to diagnose any problem or challenge you face, and they'll always point you in the direction of positive growth and change. Because the principles are universal, it doesn't matter if you're dealing with a health problem, financial problem, relationship problem, spiritual problem, or just general laziness or confusion about what to do with your life. These principles will help you gain a level of clarity you've probably never experienced before.
The great thing about universal principles is that once you understand how they work, you can apply them to solve an endless variety of specific, real-world problems.
Consider that as we discover the fundamental laws of mathematics and physics, we became empowered to solve a wide variety of practical problems. If we didn't discover those principles first, it would have been impossible for us to create rich structures such as the Internet.
While physical laws empower us within the physical universe, the laws of conscious growth empower us within the conscious universe.
If you're dealing with a major problem in your life right now, I guarantee that your specific problem can be redefined as a problem of alignment with one or more of these universal principles. When you understand which principles you've been violating, you'll also understand how to correct the mistake and get back on track.
As you continue to increase your alignment with these principles, you'll find that your life keeps getting better and better. You'll solve problems more easily, enjoy a flow of abundance, and have the strength and energy to tackle meaningful goals.
