“An integral being knows without going, sees without looking, accomplishes without doing.” – Lao Tzu

One of Deepak Chopra’s spiritual laws of success is the Law of the Least Effort. Embedded in it is the notion of going with the flow without resistance. The daffodil bulbs in my garden automatically rise each spring, and the leaves on my maple trees effortlessly fall in autumn. They don’t strain. So often we try to force something into being instead of letting it happen naturally.

When we go against our instincts and try to be someone else or live the life that someone else wants us to live, we feel drained. Rather than exerting so much energy to conform or chase power or control, relax your effort to discover harmony, joy and a new level of accomplishment.
