6 Universal Laws You Must Know

When I first started practicing Buddhism, my Monk said to me, “Don’t just believe what I tell you, try these things and see for yourself.” He was referring to the Universal Laws that are always in motion. Some of these laws, like the Law of Gravity, we learn in school, but most of them are more mysterious.

These laws can cause us to experience things like “miracles” and extraordinary events. But when you dig deeper, these are actually the Universal Laws at work. These include:

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation, which means that energy moves in and out of form. This is how all things are made—including you and me. It also includes our thoughts and actions. The phrase, “what you think about, you bring about,” ties strongly into this law.

The Law of Vibration (also known as the Law of Attraction) says that things that are alike will vibrate at a similar level. This is how we attract people, events, and circumstances in alignment with us. This law determines what you draw into your life.

The Law of Rhythm is about cycles in life. Like the tide going in and out, everyone experiences positive and negatives events. Life is not meant to be 100% rosy all the time. By understanding this law, we can learn to “go with the flow” and keep suffering to a minimum.

The Law of Reciprocity (also known as the Law of Karma) says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction—or consequence. In other words, this is why thinking positively elicits more positive things, and vice versa. The same goes for practicing kindness and treating others the way we want to be treated.

The Law of Relativity states that everything is perceived as to how it relates to something else. For example, you cannot know you’re inside if there wasn’t also an outside. Our perceptions are tied to this law—such as labeling things as difficult or simple.

The Law of Gender says there is a masculine and feminine energy in everything. These energies need a balance. This law also ties into a gestation period for all things to grow. This includes all of our thoughts, beliefs, and desires.
