Everything vibrates and moves in certain rhythms. These rhythms establish seasons, cycles, stages of development, and patterns. Each cycle reflects the regularity of God’s Universe.
Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates. — The Kybalion.
The Law of Rhythm states that the energy in the universe is like a pendulum. Whenever something swings to the right, it must then swing to the left. Everything in existence is involved in a dance… swaying, flowing, swinging back and forth. Everything is either growing or dying.
This law can even be seen in the cycles of economies, there is a high period then a low period.
You can also see that the seasons are in a continuous flow of summer to winter. Everything goes through cycles, yet everything has a rhythm or a pattern. What seems to be random is actually very orderly.
The law of rhythm also governs our health, relationships, and spirituality. Let’s say that you’re at peak potential with your health and fitness. If you realize you’re at the peak, then you can foresee your health and fitness dropping some. However, instead of viewing this “drop in health” as something being wrong with you, you now view it as a sign to rest your body. Then, by law, you have to grow to a better and higher state of potential.
Masters know how to rise above negative parts of a cycle by never getting to excited or allowing negative things to penetrate their consciousness.
The key to success in mastering this law is in balance. Never allow your emotions to swing too far to the left or right.
