Newton's three laws of motion
- Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.
- The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors. In this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector.
- For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
I know. You didn't come here expecting a physics lesson. Neither did I. The way beliefs work in the human world are remarkably similar to the way Newton's three laws of motion work in the physical world.
The core beliefs of the physical world are the laws of physics. Gravity, Newton's laws of motion, E=mc2. All of these laws function at all places in the universe. Usually we don't think of beliefs in terms of physical laws, but if you create your own reality, then this must be a core belief in the world also, a law on the psychological plane. Reality creation has analogs to Newton's laws of motion.
The Three Laws of Beliefs
- If you retain the same beliefs, you will continue to find yourself in similar circumstances. If you don't change, your world won't change.
- When you do change a belief, the new belief will interact with current beliefs to create a set of circumstances congruent with the new set of beliefs. Beliefs don't exist in a vacuum.
- Every belief creates a corresponding reaction in your world. This is a restatement of the law of attraction.
