The law of relativity was first developed by Albert Einstein in the years of 1907-1915. Thankfully, you don’t have to know the full theory behind this law to successfully apply it in your life. All we’re going to talk about are the spiritual or metaphysical implications of this universal law.
The law of relativity tells us that everything in our physical world is only made real by its relationship or comparison to something. Light only exist because we compare it to dark. Good can only exist because we compare it to bad. Hot can only exist because we compare it to cold.
Think about it for a moment— can you tell me where hot begins and ends? No, you can’t. Something is only hot because we are comparing it to cold.
Let me illustrate more. Recently, I was running outside in 13 degree Fahrenheit weather. I must say, it was cold out there! My hands were numb, I couldn’t feel my face, and I didn’t even know if my feet were still attached!
Once I finished my run, I left the bitter cold atmosphere and went inside my house. For some reason, my heat wasn’t working that day. We had a thermometer inside the house and it was reading 55 degrees. My roommate was sitting on the couch and I could see how freezing cold he was. Well, as I was standing in my doorway taking off my shoes, I was sweating so bad I couldn’t take how hot it was in there. I asked my roommate to turn the heat down (not knowing the furnace was already broken) and he said, “Are you kidding me! I’m freezing! It’s only 55 degrees in here!”
When I came inside, it felt so hot to me because I was outside in the cold for an hour running. Even though it was freezing in my house, the temperature was relatively warm compared to the outside cold .
In fact, everything in our life just is until we compare it to something.Nothing in life has any meaning, except for the meaning that we give it.
The law of relativity becomes useful for our everyday life by observing how our comparisons may be self-defeating. Let’s say you’re earning $50,000 as an annual income. However, you constantly feel that you don’t have enough money or $50,000 is not a lot. You may even have an income goal and your current earnings just don’t show you being close to your goal. Thinking in that manner is putting you in a negative vibration, which is repelling all the prosperity and goodness from you. The reason you feel that $50,000 is not enough, is because you’re comparing that amount of money to someone or something that has a higher earning.
Did you know that the average income for an individual in India per year is only $500! Take your earnings of $50,000 over to India and you are a very rich person. Why don’t you try and compare your income to the average income in India for awhile? I guarantee you’ll feel how blessed and prosperous you really are. Latching on to those prosperous feelings puts you in a positive and abundant vibration. Then, by law, you’ll have no choice but to attract more wealth.
How you use the law of relativity can either pull you up to greater heights, or hold you down swallowed in failure. Use this law by finding all the good that exist in your life. Be thankful that you’re blessed with prosperity and abundance. Instead of comparing your reality with one that is a huge goal of yours, feel gratitude for what you already have.
