The Universal Law of Scale

It’s true and it’s easy to forget. When you’re in the valley of challenge and difficulty, life can seem like a frustratingly slow, redundant process that shows little progress.

Keep this in mind. There’s a key and often overlooked concept on which the universe seems to operate.

I like to call it the Law of Scale. This law is captured in well-known aphorisms like, “It’s always darkest before the dawn.”

A thing is often directly proceeded by its opposite and at the same energy level. Small waves beget small waves. Massive fluctuation in one direction is often followed by a massive fluctuation in the other. It’s the universe’s way of establishing and maintaining balance.

When you are experiencing your hardest challenge, know it’s preparing you for your highest triumph.

Even though every bit of sensory information and logic doubts it, count on it!

I’d love to hear your comments below, if you’ve experienced this phenomenon.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.



Evening Motivation – Roadblocks Are Shortcuts to Something Better

Hey, my friends!

I hope you’ve had a fantastic day! Here’s a little evening motivation for any of you who have ever hit a roadblock or a detour in your plans. Sometimes it’s the best possible thing that can happen. Here’s an affirmation you can use to remind yourself of that profound fact.

Enjoy your evening and sleep well!


Roadblocks Are Shortcuts – The Affirmation Spot for Friday September 28, 2007

Today’s affirmation is:

“Roadblocks are simply shortcuts to something better than I had planned.”

Today’s affirmation is a testament to our ability, indeed, our necessity to turn life’s obstacles into opportunities. There is an old saying that life is what happens to us on the way to our dreams. We think we are so smart and we have it all figured out and yet life, inevitably, throws us for a loop.

We have a choice. We can sit and pout because things didn’t turn out as we’d scripted them. Or, we can push forward with renewed determination.

 Sometimes – as much as we hate to admit it – the universe’s wisdom is sounder than our own. The very thing that messed up our perfected plans can be the key that unlocks whole new possibilities.

However, we cannot find the key as long as we view the detour as a curse rather than as the blessing that it truly is.

May your day be filled with roadblocks ready to transform into shortcuts to your success and happiness.
