According to author Dan Millman, the most important section in his best-selling book The Life You Were Born to Live was titled: " Laws that Change Lives" - keys to overcoming specific hurdles on each individual's life path. Different laws played critical roles for different paths.
But Millman felt that these laws deserved a book of their own, and a more universal treatment, since anyone could benefit from applying any of these laws. As he writes: "The universe operates according to spiritual laws as real as the law of gravity. Aligning our lives to these laws can transform our relationships, careers, finances, and health. Simply put, they make life work better."
The Laws of Spirit, Millman's "little book of big wisdom," offers a teaching tale in which he encounters an ageless woman sage while on a mountain hike. There, in the wilderness, she takes Dan, and his readers, through experiences and tests in the natural world that demonstrate the power of key spiritual laws of balance, choice, process, presence, faith, action, cycles, surrender, unity and others.
As the sage relates, "These laws belong to all of us. They rest within our hearts and at the heart of every religion and spiritual tradition." As you make your own journey through the pages of this book, you will find universal solutions to the varied challenges of our lives, leading to perspective and wisdom about the meaning and purpose of our lives here, and our connection with all of creation.
It begins with a single step: Open the first page of a book you will refer to again and again for inspiration and guidance on life’s journey, up the mountain path.
