“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.” Albert Einstein
Einstein is famous for discovering his theory of relativity (both of them). The law of relativity listed in the book, The Light Shall Set You Free, comes from a spiritual source, but nonetheless the law seems to be interpreted pretty much the same in both cases.
The general premise of the law of relativity is that your view point or perception of any event determines the reality you experience. This can apply to how you physically see or experience an event or it can apply to how you emotionally perceive an event.
I won’t get into the physical interpretation as that is not really the focus of this post. What is the focus is that we can use this law and our minds to control our own happiness.
Whatever event we experience we have the power to control how we will react and therefore have control over our own happiness.
Let’s say you got a speeding ticket on the way to work. You have two choices. You can get mad and upset with yourself or the officer that you got the ticket and that it ruined your day, or you could accept the fact that you choose to speed and got caught. By accepting it and choosing not to get upset you taking control of your own happiness. You are choosing to be happy. Relativity is us choosing to how we will see any event. How you experience the speeding ticket is “relative” to your point of view. One way is angry and mad, the other way is understanding and accepting.
The law of relativity is just one of the universal laws which are set of law listed in my book, Awaken Your Power, on how we can successfully manage our own energy to attract whatever life we want to live and to find happiness wherever we go. For more examples on how to use the law of relativity check out my previous post on the law of relativity.
