You Create Your Future (Part 3)

 “You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration”

-James Allen

 The Laws of Creation (Part 3)
We have finally come to the last part in this series. In part 2, I explained that no matter how confused you may be about what you want to create, a time will come when it’ll all seem clear to you (Law of Illumination). You also got to know how critical it is to select the kind of people you interact with (Law of Environment) and how you must know when and when not to do certain things (Law of Times and Season) on the road to creating your future. To understand this last part, you should read the previous laws of creation if you haven’t.

In this post, you’ll get to know the final laws that led to the creation of the earth and how you can apply them in your life.

7. The Law of Order.
“And God said; Let Us make man in our image…” (Gen 1:26). You can see that man was the last thing God created but yet was the ultimate creation. You would expect Man to have been created first being that he had such value.

God created everything that man would need, before creating man himself. God had created the competition, the resources (the trees of life and good and evil), the man power and fuel (the beasts of the earth) before creating the final product and this gave him a personal brand. This brand had so much quality that man’s greatest competitor (the devil) had to be a part of it. You too can be of so much value that even your greatest enemies would move closer to you just to have a share.

Create your competition with the people you interact with, gather your resources in the planning stage and make your mind work for you. The final you would be a brand that no one can easily toy with.

8. The Law of Integrity.
“And God said, and there was light” (Gen 1:3). Whenever God says something, it is always so. His word never returns to him void. Your word can too. Integrity was one of the most important ingredients in creation of the earth that God started with it since the beginning. Let your yes be yes and your no be no.

9. The Law of Perfection 
Whenever God creates, he does it to perfection, according to His standards. After every creation, He acknowledges the fact that it was good. There is no partial quality, your product either has quality or it doesn’t. Never leave anything half done, complete the task no matter how long or hard it may seem. At the end, you’ll get to look back and say, “It was good.”

There you have it, all nine laws of creation explained in the way I know how to.

Is there any law or principle you think should be included here or would you like to add a missing piece to the puzzle? Prove to me that you read this post and leave a comment. I’d love to read it.

The Laws of Creation (Part Two)

In my last post, I explained the importance of the ‘how?’ question and how it’s related to forming the future you desire. I also introduced the laws of creation and explained the first three laws: The Law of The Source, The Law of Confusion and The Law of Meditation. If you missed out on that post, you can read part one of the series here.

I explained that you need to know where your vision is coming from (The Source), you need to think about the vision (Confusion) and you need to speak positively into your future (Meditation). Now, I’ll be explaining the Laws of Illumination, Environment and Season.

You Create Your Future

“You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration”

-James Allen

The Laws of Creation

In my last post, ‘Empower Your Vision with Skill‘, I talked about the importance of vision and applying what you know (skill) to what you have seen (vision) so you can get what you want (purpose) in a more refined way. But one important question is ‘how?’

Whatever knowledge you have most times determines what you do when faced with challenges. It then depends on how you apply it, your skill that determines if you come out ‘alive’.

Like the ‘why’ question, ‘how’ is also one question that requires principled answers. It’s just like a kid asking you how to fish. Telling this kid the way to hold the hook and swing it won’t answer the question. But giving him answers like the kind of bait to use, the time of the day to fish and the part of the river to fish from would make things a lot easier. The same thing goes when you’re faced with the question of how to achieve your vision. You need to know the principles, the laws governing the whole process so you know what to do when you ought to do it.

This post is simply a product of a seminar I attended recently and in the next few sentences, I’ll be sharing with you what’s called the Laws of Creation.
You would agree with me that this world we live in didn’t just emerge out of thin air. It was ‘created’ through vision, for a purpose by someone who knew He had the power to create it, just like we have the power to create our own world. Let’s see a few laws on which this world was created.

1. The Law of the Source
The question here is who are you and where is your vision coming from? Is your vision as a result of your mind playing games on you or is it from a much higher power, a realm beyond your control? You really need to know the source of your vision so that you can decide if it’s worth the investment. God had a vision of the earth He wanted to create and it was definitely from no other higher source other than Him.

2. The Law of Confusion

Sounds strange right? “And the earth was without form and void” (Gen 1:2). According to the Oxford Dictionary, void means ‘completely lacking something’. Without form simply means not having any particular shape or arrangement. Whenever I feel that something is missing in anything I find myself doing, I can go haywire trying to find out the problem. What does this mean? You’re bound to be confused when that vision first arrives. The question, ‘where do I start?’ fills your mind and you start wondering whether you’re on the right track. Regardless of how confused the beginning appeared to be, God made something out of it. You’ll do the same.

3. The Law of Meditation.
“And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” (Gen 1:2). This is just like strolling a few blocks to ‘get some air’ or to ‘do some thinking’. I do this sometimes and it does help clear out all that confusion. What this really means is Think. Arrange all those broken pieces of thought and make a decision.
After thought comes action. “And God said…” (Gen 1:3)
Talk positively to the future you’re about to create. This is called ‘positive affirmation’. The world was created first with words, so start with that.

I’ll be dividing these laws into parts (series) so you don’t get overwhelmed all at once. In the next post, you’ll get to know the next three laws (i.e. The Laws of Illumination, Environment and Season).

Creation may be based on laws but is everything in life based on established laws or principles? I’d love to hear what you think.
