The Universal Law of Relativity

The Universal Law of Relativity

The law of relativity is the 9th of the 12 laws of the universe. Many people go through a lifetime of suffering because they are conditioned to view their circumstances in a certain way. When you change the way you look at things, your life changes.

What is the law of relativity?

In short, the law of relativity teaches people to broaden their worldview and understand that one truth can have many facets. 

In this article, we will:

  1. Define the law of relativity.
  2. Discuss old faith systems and how they shaped the law of relativity.
  3. Explain the concept of duality and how it shapes our experiences
  4. Discuss the law of relativity and the level of consciousness.   
  5. Explore famous people who have used the law of relativity to define their life paths.
  6. Explore how to use the law of relativity to redefine, learn, and grow from our experiences.

Defining the Universal Law of Relativity. 

The law of relativity stipulates that ‘Everything is relative.’ 

This means that everything materializes in the physical world when we compare it to something else. For example, you cannot define darkness unless you use light or the absence of light as a point of reference. 

Similarly, you cannot qualify something as wrong unless you have standards, thoughts, and ideas of right and how right looks. 

The entire premise of the law of relativity is that suffering starts when we attach labels to people, things, or experiences. When you change the way you look at things, those labels fade, and you can see the truth.

Suppose we can learn to detach from the need to label things successfully. In that case, we will access all the realms of reality a situation presents.

 When we embrace the multiple realms of reality that a single experience carries, we speed up the process of soul evolution. 

In summary, there are multiple levels of reality:

  • What is happening outside of you
  • How others describe what is happening outside of you
  • How you view what is happening outside of you
  • How you perceive people’s opinions of things happening outside of you
  • How the inside of you is reacting to what is happening outside of you
  • How you perceive whatever is happening inside you

Sadly, many live their lives paying too much attention to things happening outside of them and what others say about those events. 

This article will discover how to mute this undue pressure from the outside. We will learn to listen to the still voice that guides us from within, which will help us process and change from the inside, and, thus, change our reality.

The Origins of the Universal Law of Relativity

Universal Law

The law of relativity is as old as the universe. In the beginning, there was no right and wrong, no darkness or light, heaven or earth—most of the myths that discuss creation state that all these states comingled and co-existed in Oneness.

Perhaps many may argue that when the creator, God, proclaimed that there should be light and separated the heavens from the earth, this Oneness ceased to exist. 

However, another way to view these events could be to realize apparent physical separation. It is a reality that cannot exist unless you compare it to the Oneness that preceded it. When you change the way you look at things, everything starts to look different than before.

This means that even the act of creation and its result are part of the law of relativity.

Albert Einsteins Scientific Take on the Law of Relativity

The science genius, Albert Einstein, formulated the law of relativity in 1905. It has developed into one of the most popular laws in astronomy, physics, mathematics, and other aspects of science. 

The law of relativity explains everything from the formation of black holes to how the planet Mars behaves in its orbit. 

The law states that the laws of physics are the same everywhere for the stationary observer. 

For instance, if you measure the mass of an object, you do it relative to something else. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds on earth, you will weigh a mere 33 pounds on the moon. This means that weight is relative to the gravitational pull exerted by your surroundings.

The connection between this law and the spiritual concept is straightforward and direct. It is the fact that nothing has a constant meaning or quality. We qualify and quantify things relative to others.

The Impact of Old Spiritualties on the Law of Relativity

Throughout history, many spiritual and religious schools of thought have tried to guide humans on the right path, guided by the concept of duality. 

Below is how various spiritual schools of thought have addressed the law of relativity.

Vedic Spirituality

Vedic Spirituality

In chapter 18 of the Bhagavad Gita, one of the oldest texts on spirituality, Krishna says this:

“The three gates leading to this hell are lust, anger, and greed. Every sane man should give these up, for they lead to the degradation of the soul.”

The Gita is one of the most resourceful sources of teachings on living a happy life. Still, this stipulation already suggests a society that had been socialized to view things as either right or wrong.

This is perhaps because the entire premise of Vedic spirituality is karma, the concept that if you cause, you have to experience the effects of what you caused. 

The relationship Between Duality and The Law of Relativity

Everything in this cosmos exists in duality. Duality teaches us that for something to be a functional whole, it must embody two opposite competing forces. 

Spiritual awareness involves becoming aware of the fact that duality is about complementary forces and not competing forces. This means that the forces do not mute or cancel each other out; they balance each other to create a perfect whole.

Humans and Duality. It’s time to Change the Way You Look at Things

When you change the way you look at things, you’ll see things much more deeply and wisely.

One of the best reference points when understanding the law of relativity is understanding duality as human nature. 

Spiritual systems and even modern psychology have discussed this concept in detail. For instance:

  • The old Chinese practice of Daoism acknowledged that every human had two forces within them. They called them yin and yang. Yin is the darker and sometimes feminine aspect of human nature. On the other hand, the yang is bright and considered masculine. Both of these forces exist inside every human, regardless of their biological sex. They also exist in the environment.
  • Philosophers like Renee Descartes stipulated that the human body and mind operate in dualism. The mind cannot exist outside the body, but the body cannot think independently. 
  • Psychologists have acknowledged that the human brain operates at two-level. There is the conscious brain, also known as the rational mind. Then, there is the subconscious, which is the emotional brain.

If we combine all these ideas, you will realize that many old spiritual systems taught humans to mute the yin, the shadow self, or evil. In psychology, conditioning quiets the subconscious mind and invalidates it. 

Unfortunately, you upset the balance when you start ignoring the other half, which makes everything in the cosmos fully balanced. This imbalance festers until to a point where the neglected part of reality starts acting up.

For instance, if you teach a man that crying looks bad on a man, their subconscious mind takes in this perspective and locks it in at a subconscious level. This conditioning shapes your world in two ways:

  1. You will always shy away from expressing raw emotions because you relate them to weakness
  2. You will shame others, including your children, when expressing human emotions, passing on this negative conditioning to them.

And that’s the thing about duality – the more you suppress your shadow self, the more it acts out. 

How can you resolve a negative attitude toward duality

You would think that the solution to all problems caused by duality is rejecting the concept altogether. But in reality, embracing duality as your nature is the first step in changing your worldview.

Remember that when you change the way you look at things, you become wiser. You have to be truthful with yourself and accept that you have dark qualities too. Accept that you snap at people when angry and are impatient or a little less cheerful about other people’s success. 

When you embrace your darkness, you realize that other people are the same.

In the 12 laws of karma, the law of humility states that you can only change that which you have accepted. When you acknowledge and embrace your darkness, it becomes easy to work on the root cause of these behavior patterns and regulate them.

The Law of Relativity and Level of Consciousness

Scale of Consciousness-The Universal Law of Relativity

The aim of everyone who decides to take a spiritual journey into the self should be to expand their consciousness. Consciousness is a spectrum that starts at the most contracted state, known as alpha. It actualizes at the most expanded point, known as omega.

If you study the diagram above carefully, you will realize an intricate connection between the contracted level of consciousness and viewing the world from a prescriptive viewpoint. 

As your consciousness expands, you start integrating darkness as part of the light; evil is part of good, and suffering ends. 

In the end, you realize that nothing has any meaning. The rules prescribed by religion, culture, norms, and other social conditioning models determine how you interpret whatever you observe.

Famous People Who Understand the Law of Relativity

Gautama Buddha:

Buddha is one of the greatest spiritual teachers. Some even revere him as an ascended master. Buddha is quoted several times chiding Migsala, a monk who had the habit of pronouncing judgment on sinners:

“How do you know the complexity of human character?” He said, “whoever judges others digs a pit for themselves.”

Buddha, which translates to ‘the awakened one,’ tells his student that there is no right or wrong in nature and that we attach these labels to behaviors. He also reminded the monk that every time you label people and experiences, you must look for the unresolved struggles within and resolve them.

Matt Kahn:

Matt Kahn is an upcoming and one of today’s most influential spiritual teachers. Matt is an author and a spiritual coach. Some of his favorite quotes on  the law of relativity include:

“True peace is having no plans other than facing what is.”

In this quote, Matt introduces the concept of letting go of all ideas you have on what should be and embracing what is as it is. 

Depending on your comparison, this can only happen when you understand that experience becomes good or bad. 

“You attract what you judge until you no longer judge what you attract.”

This great quote by Matt Kahn refers back to the law of relativity. It shows us that the universe will send you a lesson repeatedly until you learn to dissolve that condition against which you judge and disqualify the person or experience. 

Don Miguel Ruiz:

Don was born and raised in rural Mexico. He studied neurosurgery but became a spiritual coach after a near-death experience. One of his best quotes on the law of relativity is:

“Don’t Take Anything Personally: Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their reality, their dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.”  

This shows how others view you or anything related to their issues, not your reality.


One of the most awakened spirituality coaches from Germany, Dolano, says this about relativity:

With an empty mind and open heart, out of not knowing, you know. You are Truth itself. It is your very, very nature.”

This quote means that the yardsticks we use to compare and measure our experiences are not who we are. Truth is within us; Truth is the I Am.

How to Use the Law of Relativity to Change Your Life

Change Your Life

There is a famous quote that says, “When you change how you look at things, the things you are looking at change,”

As stated earlier in the article, you probably already know that you need to change your worldview. What you may not know is that social conditioning is at the level of the subconscious mind. 

Changing your reality would include re-aligning this shadow self. 

Society calls us human beings, which implies that we are already static beings. This is a misleading view, especially regarding the ‘becoming self.’ 

Here are the differences between the two:

Characteristic of the static self

  1. The notion you were born a certain way and that cannot change
  2. The notion that you should stay true to your true self and never forget your roots
  3. The idea that you need to accept what you were given and deal with it
  4. The misconception that your character bounds you and that you cannot achieve anything beyond it.

Characteristics of the Becoming’ Self’

  1. Even though you were born in a specific environment, who you become is entirely up to you.
  2. Become whatever you dream, and do not fear losing yourself in the process.
  3. The self is an illusion, an imagination. You can create the person you want to be.
  4. Your character can change; you can do better.

Matt Kahn says in his teaching entitled, ‘All for Love,”

The one who judges needs loves the most. For unconditional love is the lack of judgment.


The rules and conditions instilled in us by old faith systems and society put us on a collision path with our everyday life. As a result, we qualify an experience as either good or bad in connection to our societal conditioning on classifying good or bad.

The starting point to a happier life is to change the way you look at things, deleting all these programs from your subconscious and letting life unfold. When we release the need to judge the happenings against what should be, we go with the flow, and life stops feeling like endless suffering.

Siddharta Gautama said that there is an eight-step process you can follow to achieve Nirvana or heaven on earth: right view, right aspiration, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration.

When everything comes from the right place, the results are a changed reality.
