I came across this stuff quite recently. I found it very inspirational and have experienced it quite recently and on goingly. It coincides with Tylers' video from Miami - Freedom of Outcome + Intent only in different words. Again, this isn't mine. I find it quite inspirational and bang on.

Law of Least Effort

by Deepak Chopra
The fourth spiritual law of success is the Law of Least Effort. This law is based on the fact that nature's intelligence functions with effortless ease and abandoned carefreeness. This is the principle of least action, of no resistance. This is, therefore, the principle of harmony and love. When we learn this lesson from nature, we easily fulfill our desires.

If you observe nature at work, you will see that least effort is expended. Grass doesn't try to grow, it just grows. Fish don't try to swim, they just swim. Flowers don't try to bloom, they bloom. Birds don't try to fly, they fly. This is their intrinsic nature. The earth doesn't try to spin on its own axis; it is the nature of the earth to spin with dizzying speed and to hurtle through space. It is the nature of babies to be in bliss. It is the nature of the sun to shine. It is the nature of the stars to glitter and sparkle. And it is human nature to make our dreams manifest into physical form, easily and effortlessly.

In Vedic Science, the age-old philosophy of India, this principle is known as the principle of economy of effort, or "do less and accomplish more." Ultimately you come to the state where you do nothing and accomplish everything. This means that there is just a faint idea, and then the manifestation of the idea comes about effortlessly. What is commonly called a "miracle" is actually an expression of the Law of Least Effort.

Nature's intelligence functions effortlessly, frictionlessly, spontaneously. It is non-linear; it is intuitive, holistic, and nourishing. And when you are in harmony with nature, when you are established in the knowledge of your true Self, you can make use of the Law of Least Effort.

Least effort is expended when your actions are motivated by love, because nature is held together by the energy of love. When you seek power and control over other people, you waste energy. When you seek money or power for the sake of the ego, you spend energy chasing the illusion of happiness instead of enjoying happiness in the moment. When you seek money for personal gain only, you cut off the flow of energy to yourself, and interfere with the expression of nature's intelligence. But when your actions are motivated by love, there is no waste of energy. When your actions are motivated by love, your energy multiplies and accumulates -- and the surplus energy you gather and enjoy can be channeled to create anything that you want, including unlimited wealth.

You can think of your physical body as a device for controlling energy: it can generate, store, and expend energy. If you know how to generate, store, and expend energy in an efficient way, then you can create any amount of wealth. Attention to the ego consumes the greatest amount of energy. When your internal reference point is the ego, when you seek power and control over other people or seek approval from others, you spend energy in a wasteful way.

When that energy is freed up, it can be rechanneled and used to create anything that you want. When your internal reference point is your spirit, when you are immune to criticism and unfearful of any challenge, you can harness the power of love, and use energy creatively for the experience of affluence and evolution.

In The Art of Dreaming, Don Juan tells Carlos Castaneda, ". . . most of our energy goes into upholding our importance.... If we were capable of losing some of that importance, two extraordinary things would happen to us. One, we would free our energy from trying to maintain the illusory idea of our grandeur; and two, we would provide ourselves with enough energy to ... catch a glimpse of the actual grandeur of the universe."

There are three components to the Law of Least Effort -- three things you can do to put this principle of "do less and accomplish more" into action. The first component is acceptance. Acceptance simply means that you make a commitment: "Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur." This means I will know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. This moment -- the one you're experiencing right now -- is the culmination of all the moments you have experienced in the past. This moment is as it is because the entire universe is as it is.

When you struggle against this moment, you're actually struggling against the entire universe. Instead, you can make the decision that today you will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. This means that your acceptance of this moment is total and complete. You accept things as they are, not as you wish they were in this moment. This is important to understand. You can wish for things in the future to be different, but in this moment you have to accept things as they are.

When you feel frustrated or upset by a person or a situation, remember that you are not reacting to the person or the situation, but to your feelings about the person or the situation. These are your feelings, and your feelings are not someone else's fault. When you recognize and understand this completely, you are ready to take responsibility for how you feel and to change it. And if you can accept things as they are, you are ready to take responsibility for your situation and for all the events you see as problems.

This leads us to the second component of the Law of Least Effort: responsibility. What does responsibility mean? Responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for your situation, including yourself. Having accepted this circumstance, this event, this problem, responsibility then means the ability to have a creative response to the situation as it is now. All problems contain the seeds of opportunity, and this awareness allows you to take the moment and transform it to a better situation or thing.

Once you do this, every so-called upsetting situation will become an opportunity for the creation of something new and beautiful, and every so-called tormentor or tyrant will become your teacher. Reality is an interpretation. And if you choose to interpret reality in this way, you will have many teachers around you, and many opportunities to evolve.

Whenever confronted by a tyrant, tormentor, teacher, friend, or foe (they all mean the same thing) remind yourself, "This moment is as it should be." Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.

The third component of the Law of Least Effort is defenselessness, which means that your awareness is established in defenselessness, and you have relinquished the need to convince or persuade others of your point of view. If you observe people around you, you'll see that they spend ninety-nine percent of their time defending their points of view. If you just relinquish the need to defend your point of view, you will in that relinquishment, gain access to enormous amounts of energy that have been previously wasted.

When you become defensive, blame others, and do not accept and surrender to the moment, your life meets resistance. Any time you encounter resistance, recognize that if you force the situation, the resistance will only increase. You don't want to stand rigid like a tall oak that cracks and collapses in the storm. Instead, you want to be flexible, like a reed that bends with the storm and survives.

Completely desist from defending your point of view. When you have no point to defend, you do not allow the birth of an argument. If you do this consistently -- if you stop fighting and resisting -- you will fully experience the present, which is a gift. Someone once told me, "The past is history, the future is a mystery, and this moment is a gift. That is why this moment is called 'the present'."

If you embrace the present and become one with it, and merge with it, you will experience a fire, a glow, a sparkle of ecstasy throbbing in every living sentient being. As you begin to experience this exultation of spirit in everything that is alive, as you become intimate with it, joy will be born within you, and you will drop the terrible burdens and encumbrances of defensiveness, resentment, and hurtfulness. Only then will you become lighthearted, carefree, joyous, and free.

In this joyful, simple freedom, you will know without any doubt in your heart that what you want is available to you whenever you want it, because your want will be from the level of happiness, not from the level of anxiety or fear. You do not need to justify; simply declare your intent to yourself, and you will experience fulfillment, delight, joy, freedom, and autonomy in every moment of your life.

Make a commitment to follow the path of no resistance. This is the path through which nature's intelligence unfolds spontaneously, without friction or effort. When you have the exquisite combination of acceptance, responsibility, and defenselessness, you will experience life flowing with effortless ease.

When you remain open to all points of view -- not rigidly attached to only one -- your dreams and desires will flow with nature's desires. Then you can release your intentions, without attachment, and just wait for the appropriate season for your desires to blossom into reality. You can be sure that when the season is right, your desires will manifest. This is the Law of Least Effort.

This took place a couple years ago before finding the community.

I am out in the downtown core both shopping, meeting with professors, adminstrators, dinning, etc. I get tons of approach invitations. The plan is that, anytime I go out, I dress my best. Sweats will not do unless, I am headed to the gym in which, I wont go dressed like a bum. A track suit will do. So, I head out decked out and I am getting tons of approach invitations. I get 6numbers in the first 20minutes out. All of them are approach invitations. I chat up randoms in the college. I get a few more numbers. In a span of two hours, everything changes completely. I go 12 numbers between meeting with adminstrators and college and university professors. I do some shopping and I grab some food. After that two hour mark, IT ALL WENT TO SHIT.

The approach invitations are gone. The nimbus isn't glowing. Its all the same but, something is suddenly different. I can't quite put my finger on it.

Realization: I started out free from outcome. I was projecting myself in a manner of "WHAT I WANT IN THIS GIVEN MOMENT." After so much "success" from the get go, I began expecting it. I went from attractive with little effort to unattractive by being needy and expecting it. When it disappeared, i enter into crisis mode. Nothing good came from here.


I went away for the weekend to party with some girls my mate and I pulled on Spring break. They came out to visit me and I finally came around to visit them. Its a give, I got something in the bank. I am going to pull again. The goal is to get at other girls.

The weekend consisted several pulls, few hook ups, a few dozen make outs, and several realizations.

I pulled this girl during a game in front of her parents. I wont go through the trouble of posting the FR. Again, I do not believe in it nor do I look for the credit or props from the interaction. My emphasis is on the actual relationship to the principle and Tylers' formula.

We won the game. The crowd was noisey. My intentions was to be "that guy" at the game. Instead, this girl and her mom stole the show. The father was very passive. I wont be surprised if the mother had a few drinks. I chatted up both the mom & the daughter. The father a little though, he was further away from me and he was extremely passive. The entire experience, I wasn't thinking "claw." I wasn't thinking "game" or tactics. It came down to:



Social awkwardness of parents, surroundings, life situations have no place in the matter. They are obstacles and are irrelevant. Unlike Arnold Schwarzenegger, they are not the sort of obstacles you just go through, kicking in doors, blowing up things, taking out walls. You can use charm, charisma, humor, confidence, and project that to the targeted audience. In doing so, you aren't that "DANCING MONKEY" however, the mom & dad are happy you are with their daughter and they are willing to give isolation.

Realization: Without actually listing the actual interaction and what was said (irrelevant), it couldn't have gone better. Despite the multiple interactions, this seemed like a real victory. It was success like the other pulls bringing back a girl to the hotel who had been with her parents only 20minutes ago. Even more spectacular, rolling with my Mates with 10GAME, and letting them see me get my flex on was quite awesome but, I GOT WHAT I WANT. The other pulls were different. Its always the same but, again, different in some intagible manner. I assure you, I don't always spit 10GAME. The reality is that, you don't have to do so to succeed. It is irrelevant what you say. Timing is essential. Women will conform. Mirroring is a powerful. When you make people feel good about themselves, when you bring that energy, a loving approach, not that "I'M THE MAN... " sort of rubbish, you are naturally congruent.

Experience: I'm out at one of the hottest venues in the city. The club is bumping, for whatever reason, I am not on top form tonight. I just don't feel like being there but, "I fake it." I continue as if its fun. I go as if I am having a good time. I am partying with my Mates. Then BAMMMMM. Out of nowhere, I see this SMOKE SHOW eye FUCKING THE SHIT OUT OF ME. She moves closer and then, dances near some chode. THE CHODE throws himself at the girl for a split sec. She complies but, I KNOW SHE WANTS ME. And she starts pulling away from this guy. Before you know it, she is BULL RUSHING me with her ass up against the wall. Make out ensues, I am FINGER BLASTING like a champ on the dance floor, and partaking in a back seat car pull in a matter of 20minutes. WTF?

Realization: HAVE FUN. It isn't a big deal. Not every night comes off as spectacular. The goal is to have fun with your mates. Without a doubt, you are going to chat up some birds. You are there to pull. Being on TOP FORM, SPITTING 10 GAME is irrelevant, and unnecessary. Project yourself, your intent with minimal effort. Don't be try hard. It all works itself out in the end.


Know in that specific moment, "WHAT DO I WANT RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW?" Go get it. Be spontaenous. Make it effortless.

I just watched the butterfly effect. I was reading up about "Chaos theory." Its pretty intense how the possibilities are endless. With one contact, a single "approach," you can instantly take your life down a totally different road. You could be singe, in a relationship, married, with kids, anything. The onus is on you. It always has been. Its really simple. Keep it that way.

 Yep, good shit.

I am reading the Don Juan stuff at the moment, recommended. Here's the link... 
 "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle
"That which is done out of love is always beyond good and evil" - Nietzsche
"It is better to do one's own duty, however defective it may be, than to follow the duty of another, however well one may perform it. He who does his duty as his own nature reveals it, never sins." - Lao Tzu
"Experience without theory is blind, but theory without experience is mere intellectual play." - Kant

Quoting Philosophisistis in my signature makes me look clever, yay!

Cheers lads.

I came across this stuff and I thought I would share as I feel it could help some guys especially the new fellas who isn't use to getting girls or has had a ton of bad experiences with rejection from women and of course, the guy getting girls. Depak is brilliant. I love his intellectual side and something new aside from ego or consciousness Ecky regurgitated all over the forum. I do believe Ecky is bang on but, I feel it is redundant especially on the forum. Its been beat to

I thought the forum could use something new.

I found it all compelling to see this and of course, be able to relate to the experiences. The community and the forums are a waste of time if your on here posting shit or doing fuck all. You can read all the shit in the world but, if your not out experiencing life, how can you relate or truly "know." Wisdom comes through life experiences. 

On my little get away, I noticed my mate with 10 GAME hitting on every hottie. In a situation where a girl doesn't reciprocate positively or not at all, he responds like water off a ducks back. he PLOWs and keeps talking. Sometimes, he pulls when he had nothing on from the get go. Other times, it goes nowhere but, i watch how he further illustrates this law. I marvel at how innate some of these laws are for some and yet, so ignorant to others. My one mate is by nature a complete chode. Its a shame. One of us (10GAMER or myself) will pull some girls over, random street interaction pull or in que, WHATEVER. The girls are DTF and yet, my chode mate just barely talks or bores them to death. It is a shame. I wish I could help him out.

Not familar with Don Juan. I should look at that. Not really reading anything for PU purposes. I am looking at a more all round life pull at the moment. I want to be pulling SMOKE SHOWS as is the case now however, I want to pull MONEY, DREAM JOB, EDUCATION, KNOWLEDGE, THE BEST OF EVERYTHING, etc

I am not so much as getting out 7days a week any more. My goals have diversified. I have set some concrete goals for myself that have nothing to do with pick up but, all to do with the game of life which coincides with "game." Building that elaborate larger the life persona will aid in the career leap I am looking to make, the self education through reading, living, traveling, etc. I got this 5year plan. In this time, I am looking to do big things. Looking to settle down in the next decade.

Pick up is secondary to these goals. Nothing, no SMOKE SHOW will get in the way of this 5 year plan. At the same time, I will still PULL, I am STILL GETTING AT SMOKE SHOWS, I AM STILL "THAT GUY!"

I am just past that go hard mentality of 7days a week. It contradicts that law of least effort. I don't need to spend all that time to get SMOKE SHOWS.

If you are in your teens, by all means, go buck wild. Go spend the time and do this. Its fine. If you are in your 20s or early 20s like myself, you may want to consider diversifying your goals. Don't get me wrong. Pulling is sweet. Since getting out 7days a week since Spring break, I've had a hell of an adventure. I've pulled a bunch of girls. I've had so many numbers. It has been fun but, the reality is that, its been expensive getting out. It isn't building my financial portfolio. Also, few to none of these girls are gems. Most of these were girls you do with as you like and then you BROOM them. I am not looking for a wifey but, I am not exactly content with women bitching about men, refering to themselves as "princess" or talking about rubbish. A woman fuck buddy is cool but, if her head space is god awful, I could be making money. She isn't worth the time. I will call her or she can call me so, we can get to the business. Nothing else.

With these big goals I am looking to attain, I want to encapsulate these sort of high value human beings around me. Both men, mates with big dreams, naturals, go getter sort of lads and women with a dream, in a career - nurses, mrt, physio therapists, reporter etc I've pulled a few of these as well as students in this life circle. Its cool and calming to be around people with the motivational drive and direction to somewhere. No lost causes or empty souls.

I am building myself. I hope this stuff helped you guys out. I hope it hells more guys out. Depak is great guys. Do check him out.

Sounds just like the book Reality Transurfing that I have been reading. It says the same thing as the Law of Least effort but gives much more of a context to how it works. Gonna put it into action and see how it works
