Russell Simmons : Karma Economics

"The science is simple: When you give the world love and respect, the world will give you love and respect back." ~ Russell Simmons from Do You!

It's Law Number Eight (in Russell's 12 Laws of Success to Do You!): "The Science of Success: Plant the Good Seeds."

We've all heard this one before.

The Bhagavad Gita teaches us: "When we do wrong, we come to suffering. When we do good in the world, we come to happiness."

The Bible teaches: "You reap what you sow."

Eric Butterworth in Spiritual Economics: "The law is exact: If you give, really work in a giving consciousness, you must receive."

Ralph Waldo Emerson in his essay, Compensation: "Cause and effect, means and ends, seed and fruit, cannot be severed; for the effect already blooms in the cause, the end preexists in the means, the fruit in the seed."

Esther & Jerry Hicks describe the Law of Attraction in Ask and It Is Given: "Every thought vibrates, every thought radiates a signal, and every thought attracts a matching signal back. We call that process the Law of Attraction." The Law of Attraction says: That which is like unto itself is drawn. And so, you might see the powerful Law of Attraction as a sort of Universal Manager that sees to it that all thoughts that match one another line up."

And countless others.

So, what seeds are you planting? Are you looking forward to their harvest? If not, what's one thing you need to STOP doing right now that's no longer serving you? If you're giddy about the seeds you're planting coming to fruition, right on! What else can you do?

And, in any case, what's the #1 thing you KNOW you should be doing that you're not currently doing? Make it a habit. Plant the seeds. Now.

"When you do good by the world, the world will do good by you." ~ Russell Simmons from Do You!
