Two Universal Principles Which Can Change Your Life

Updated on November 2, 2018

Sean is a teacher who is writing about his spiritual adventures to help other people find balance and self-respect.


There is a Universal Principle, the Energy Conservation Principle: When I act with love, Love acts for me.

— Sean Dragon

The First Principle

One of the most fundamental principles of science and mainly the cornerstone of Physics is the Energy Conservation Principle. This principle says that the energy that exists in the Universe can change forms, but it cannot be destroyed, neither lost nor created in its totality. Since the Creation of the Universe and forever the energy will be the same amount, but its forms can change. You can, for example, convert solar energy to electric power, the chemical energy of the fuels or food to heat (calories) but the total amount will be the same.

Like every fundamental principle of the material world, this one too is based on a similar internal and spiritual principle: The kind of my action returns to me, and it will return until I decide to change it into another form.

So we cannot act with selfishness, hatred, indifference and malice, expecting that the actions of the Universe towards us will be beautiful and beneficial to us. The universe never breaks its principles. If I act negatively, even a little, sooner or later the results of these actions will return to me, in the same negative way. Then there will be no one else to blame but myself.


But if I radiate all around me goodness and positive energy, if I choose Love instead malice, smile instead gloom and offer them to the world, then only positive energy and bliss will be the response of the Universe to me. There will always be a favourable wind in my sails to travel to my dreams.

I empower my actions with Love until the Universe is filled with it.

— Sean Dragon

It is strange, but that is how it works: When you offer and serve without waiting for any return, it is sure that your life will be blessed. When you offer or help while you are expecting even for a simple "thank you", you will probably feel deprived.

— Sean Dragon

The Second Principle

A common cause of frustration, for us humans, is what we call "ingratitude". In so many cases, we have thought with bitterness in our heart: "I did so much for him (or her) and what is the return?"

It is a situation that profoundly hurts human relationships and creates misery and misunderstanding where there should naturally be happiness. Because to offer and serve, means to express Love. Is Love in practice. And Love brings only joy, to the one accepts it, but also to the one offers it. This is a Universal Law. So why does it seem not to work in such a situation?

The answer is simple: Because it is not Love when you offer and expecting for a return. It's trading. And trade may have a profit, but sometimes it also has the loss.

Unfortunately, we have degenerated, into our mind, the concept of Love, to that level. We have made Love a process of "product" exchange. In fact, we say:

"I offer you, but you have to remember it so that you offer back to me. It would be nice for you if you return to me more than I gave you since I first made a generous move. Otherwise, you are ungrateful!"

But Love is not like this! Love means I offer because I care, because I want to see the other be happy. This is my only reward, my loved one's happiness. I do not expect anything in return. So I release myself from all negative thoughts and distress, but I also free the other from the oppressive bonds of obligation and ingratitude. This is what Love is, is freedom, not commitment. Because, what is the meaning of the offer when automatically this would create commitments to the one who accepts this? Then we should enter into a negotiation about Love. Like: "Do you allow me to offer you my Love and do you pledge to return to me yours?"

No! Love is freedom! I can offer my love to anyone I want without waiting for approval because I just don't expect any return.


Let us re-establish in our minds the concept of Love. Let's offer without waiting for anything, let's give unconditional Love, and then we will experience incredible fullness and serenity. The more we offer, the more we will fill with blessings. Because this is the miraculous way that Universe works!

The magic of love: You give Love generously, and what is left to you is more abundant than before.

      Great message on love, Sean, and one I believe in. As I mature, I understand it better: "Love is, is freedom, not commitment." Praying for the grace and wisdom to act on it.

      My dear sister, Dana, that's why I am looking forward to your comments! Thank you so much for your wise contribution to my Hub!

      "If we want to grow into perfect love then we must keep our eyes on the Source."

      Amazing! Your Heart glows!

      My dear sister, Chitrangada Sharan, thank you so much! Your comments are always so kind and full of encouragement, and I know your Heart is noble! Science and Spirituality were my two "legs" when I started my journey to Knowledge, and now I know that are manifestations of the same Source. I am glad you liked it. I believe that you have studied the greater Science of all, the Science of Love...

      Om Shanti!

      I know someone who does a lot of good things for others but as she grew older she became bitter because she felt she was such a wonderful person and life was not repaying her with kindness.

      I shared with her something I had learned which is, people could be fooled by outer appearances or flattered by words and acts of kindness but the true source of wisdom judges the heart.

      What most people do not realize- especially those who are not spiritually mature- is we rarely do anything without a selfish motive.

      Even if the motive is to have everyone think we are such a wonderful person. The spirit shared something with me.

      It's easier to develop the fruits inside of you and be the person you're trying so hard to manipulate others into seeing you as. We are capable of being- kind, generous, loving, etc. We just need to spend more time into developing the fruits and less time trying to fool others.

      More people would be blessed if we understood blessings come from the motive behind the acts and not the acts themselves. I also would like to say that we do ourselves a disservice when we try to be the standard of perfection for others or look for it ourselves in others. If we want to grow into perfect love then we must keep our eyes on the Source.

      Wise words and a very insightful article by you! You beautifully combine Science and Spirituality.

      I agree with you that the two principles mentioned above, are of universal importance.

      The example of energy, is so well thought of. I have heard it so many times from my husband, that energy can’t be destroyed- - - -. Rules of Physics and rules of life. Except me, everyone in my family has studied Science stream(Engineers).

      Thanks for sharing this excellent article! I enjoyed reading it.

      That is why I consider you as one of my teachers, my dear Brother, Manatita! You, indeed, illustrated my text with your comment. You gave feedback to a very "tricky" topic as the financial incomes are. I was sure about you, your life is so rich in many levels! Thank you from my Heart, for everything!

      Hail to Love everybreathly (this is my own word, lol!!)!

      Beautifully written! Sometimes it dawns on me that I am never broke and I'm amazed! I have spent the last 36 years giving … giving and now I'm talking about the financial side. Sure, I had credit cards till 60. I had to pay debts, but somehow along the road, money always came.

      Today I'm retired. I draw an NHS Pension, a government pension and I work! This means that I have even more money, although I'm still travelling and serving more.

      I just spent 3 months in Kenya. I had a fair sense of how much I needed and how much should be in my account. Still, the Sri Chinmoy Centre chipped in and helped me so much, that I spent little of my own.

      Just trying to illustrate the beauty and meaningfulness of your hub, as applied to me on one level. Giving brings its own reward when there are no expectations. We give for giving sake.

      You have effectively explained the law of karma in a simple and lucid way. God bless you my brother. Hail to Love!

      Yes, my brother Roderic, having kids is the best way to practice unconditional Love, my four sons have helped me a lot to learn.

      My brother, I can see that you are on the right path and I am sure that you will get there. I think you are close enough!

      Proud to know you!

      Yes, my dear brother John, if we only practise Jesus' teaching in our lives...

      Thank you for your kind and honouring words! I am so glad that I have found brothers in Love from all over the world! I am proud to know you from Australia, Tim, Eric, Bill, Chris and now Roderic from the USA, my teacher Manatita from England and so many others brothers and sisters! This community has made me a better person because I am trying to be as good as all you are!

      This is an important message. It is also a method of life that is very possible. As long as we accept where we are in the continuum of love then we can move in the directions God wants us to.

      I aspire to the unconditional love. I am not there yet. I want love in return; so I hope I get it when I give it out. When I don't get love in return it hurts. I notice as my children grow older and I experience life with them it is easier to love without expecting love. Family is the best place to learn unconditional love. Also, this love is a gift from God. If we don't ask for it, we will not have it. We ask for it directly and by the way we live our lives. I will get there.

      Brother Sean, such wisdom is contained in your words. If everyone lived by these two principles the world would be a so much better place. This is what Jesus tried to teach.....give without expecting return. You reap what you sow is a universal law. The energy Conservation Principle was a wonderful example. Unfortunately, many people are takers and not givers, or will only give if they think they will profit by doing it.

      You, my friend, are a good person. Keep spreading the love.
