What is the Law of Compensation?
In basic terms, the Law of Compensation is one of the 12 Universal Laws and it says that you will always be rewarded (or compensated) for all your actions and doings. So, whatever you do in your life will have a tremendous influence in whatever it is your reward or compensation is. Remember the saying “You reap what you sow” or “You get what you give”? So, it doesn’t matter the effort you put out, for you will always receive accordingly.
The thing with the Law of Compensation is that it is not directed on or used for any particular thing or issue only. Meaning, the reward is not just about financial gains or getting the person we want or getting that amazing car or house we always dreamed of having. The Law of Compensation goes way beyond that – it encompasses absolutely everything in your life! Everything.
How Does the Law of Compensation Work?
As we saw above, the Law of Compensation says that whatever you give out, you get back in a similar manner. But in order for the action to take place, you must first THINK it and FEEL it. Meaning, you have to watch your thoughts in a more careful and proactive way to get the outcome you desire.
For example, if you have the means to help someone but you choose not to, for whatever reason, you can’t expect for something good (reward, compensation) to come to you. But, even if you’re not in a good position in life but make a choice of helping someone out (it doesn’t matter how), you bet that something good is coming your way! It may not be in the same or similar fashion as the way that you helped the other person out, it may not have anything to do with that person, but you will definitely find yourself in the receiving end of something positive.
If you think this Law of Compensation sounds extremely similar to what karma is, then you should read the article on karma I wrote. When you read it, you will have a better idea and understanding of what karma is and what similarities and differences are there between it and the Law of Compensation.
How To Use the Law of Compensation on a daily basis
We as a society are more used to think, feel and act in less than positive ways. We do it every single day and most of the time we don’t even realize we’re doing it. If you think about it, how often do you complain or say negative things about the traffic or other drivers when you’re driving or using public transport? How often do you complain about the weather? What about a service that was provided to you that you didn’t like?
We are constantly saying negative things about all sort of things and people and we don’t think how that is actually affecting our own lives. The “trick” here is to start looking at situations and other people in a more positive way, not because you have to, but because you want to, because doing so will not only benefit yourself, but also will benefit the other(s), somehow.
Start with your thoughts. Rather than just jump in and think and say something that will definitely come out as not nice, pause for a bit and opt for something a little bit more positive, no matter what the situation is.
This applies even when you think about yourself! What you think of eventually comes true, if you think of it repeatedly and consistently.
Why is it that almost every time you think and say “I hope I won’t be late!” or “I can’t screw up this time” or even “I hope it doesn’t rain today” the exact opposite usually tends to happen?
It’s because you’re focusing on what you don’t want rather than what you want. The more you focus on what it is that you don’t want, the more you’ll get it. So, here’s my question: doesn’t it make sense to instead focus on what you really want in your life, so that you have a better one?
The Law of Compensation never fails nor it is wrong or right. The law… just is. It will always give you a reward no matter what you think and do, whether you like it or understand it or not. Also, you won’t be forever compensated or rewarded because of just one single thought or action; the LoC will only work for as long as you have those thoughts and do those actions.
So, do you want to have more happiness, more abundance, more love and many other things in your life? Then you have to change the way you think and the way you act about yourself and other people. No good things ever happen from thinking negative, but all good things happen when you think about an empowering outcome.
