The Law of Emergence

There’s been a lot of chatter in our community about how to become healthy, attractive and abundant. Some say that if you haven’t yet gotten what you want in life, you need to learn skills and methods for self-improvement.

Not so, according to the Law of Emergence. This law, coined by supercoach Derek Rydall, maintains that feeling the need to improve anything only delays true fulfillment.

What’s more, Derek maintains that beliefs in ‘self improvement’ conceal our original perfection and may even lead to a feeling that we’re more ‘broken’ than we really are.

‘Self-improvement’ is revealed as an oxymoron, an illusion, a clever misconception because the Self, when truly comprehended, is whole and complete. Your circumstances, abilities and skills may improve, but who you are is already perfect.

Does the idea of ‘perfection’ stick in your craw and make you want to expectorate? If it’s hard to swallow, chew on this:

The Law of Emergence is completely natural. It maintains that just as an acorn contains an oak within it, the Self has everything it needs to fulfill its own higher purpose. When the conditions are right, that purpose will emerge organically… bigger, better, and more abundantly than you had ever imagined.

On the other hand, striving to ‘improve’ yourself is a costly diversion that often leads to feelings of inadequacy requiring, yes, more self-improvement. It can become a vicious cycle, like trying to dig yourself out of a hole.

If the acorn could improve itself, would it try be a more perfect and forgiving acorn in order to feel good enough to become an oak tree?

If a caterpillar could study the Law of Attraction, would it seek to become a stronger and more beautiful caterpillar, hoping to attract a butterfly?

It’s time to own the fact that, like the caterpillar and the acorn, you already have what it takes to be the ideal you, warts and all. And here’s the payoff: this knowledge, this quality of being, is what actually determines the quality of your life.

Unfortunately, most of us were taught to believe ourselves victims of circumstance, and to an extent, that external conditions will determine how high we’ll grow and how far we’ll go.

Whether it’s the economy, our health, the spouse, a parent, the government or the weather – there’s always an excuse for why we can’t do or be what we want. This leads to a belief system that needs things ‘out there’ to change before we can be happy.

The Law of Emergence reveals that every ‘condition’ is experienced internally, and we have 100% control over that regardless of what happens in the world around us.

This means that if circumstances require a specific action, you’ll be moved to take it. When it requires others to take action, they’ll do so. If outer changes are needed – a new car, new job, more money, or healing – these will naturally take place in the process.

So it isn’t about getting something from the world; it’s about making things welcome internally and allowing them to come out from within. It’s skill set that establishes deep satisfaction and real abundance, and you owe it to yourself to use it.

If you want to learn more about this fantastic personal asset, look up the Law of Emergence. With a little guidance and practice, it will all come naturally to you.

To your emergence –
