2016 - Isaac Newton’s Third Law as a Life Mantra
I’ve been thinking about Isaac Newton’s Third Law of
“To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
It’s a scientific law in the universe
and that law includes every part of your life… from business to people. You are responsible for your own life. You
create your own life. Every thought and word and action that you have also has an equal reaction.
If you’re a kind
person, interested in giving to others, helping not hurting, then your actions will have a good effect or good re-action on
others and also on you. If you’re actions are corrupt and disrespectful to others, then you’ll absolutely
hurt people and hurt yourself as well.
Think about who you know that’s kind and who you know who’s mean. What is their life
• If you like to fight with people then you attract anger and hostility.
• If you’re thoughtful and generous then good things come back
• If you focus on lack – not having certain things, complaining about
money, not having work, trying to fool and beat out other people – what do you think you’re attracting?
• If other people treat you badly, say they lie to you, your reaction is not to trust them
and to stay away. They’re not friends.
• If you live a kind life, focus on
living an abundant life, then you’ll have it because whatever you put your attention to will increase and come into
Think about what you’re putting
out to the world and what you’re attracting back. And – how do your actions affect your body, mind, and
heart? We create our own world. That is the reason you have the reality or the life you are living right now.
The important news
– you can change your life and change your way of seeing the world at any moment. You can make new choices, different
choices, better choices at any time to improve your life in many positive and good ways.
You have the power. You’re in control.
It reminds me of William
Ernest Henley’s closing words from his famous poem ‘Invictus’:
“I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.”
You are the agent for your life. You are
in charge of booking your present and your future journey. You go where you want to. It’s not haphazard – not
hit or miss. It’s your choice. Your destiny is in your own hands.
We all want to lead
the best lives we can – to live with truth and beauty and love. After all – they’re the three
greatest values in life.
