Spiritual Law – Law of Projection

There are thirty six or more spiritual laws which offer excellent ways for us to understand life on earth, some of the following text has been taken form Diana Cooper’s fantastic book “A Little Light on the Spiritual Laws“. I will briefly explain each law over the coming weeks, if you find this interesting I would encourage you to read Diana’s book.

The Law of Projection

All that we perceive outside of our self is a mirror of something within. Therefore everything we see outside of ourselves is a projection. When we take an aspect of ourselves like selfishness, and imagine that quality is in those around us.
We project our issues, good and bad, on to other people and assume it is them with the issue and denying that the issue is in us.
Every time you say “you are” or “he is” or “she is” you are projecting something from yourself onto someone else. Whenever you do this, for example you say “You are stupid” you are unconsciously seeing some of your own stupidity in the other person. It can also be positive, for example “you are so kind” where you see some of your kindness in the other person. If you tell others they are wise and don’t accept your own wisdom you are projecting your wisdom externally. When we assume that someone else feels as we do, it is a projection. We are putting our feelings on to the other person.
If you bury your hostility and express it at passive anger you will project hostility on to those around you and will imagine people to be aggressive whether they are or not.
We also project our insecurities; the wife who constantly accuses he husband of infidelity is projecting her own lack of faith in the relationship. Projecting ourselves onto others prevents us from taking responsibility for ourselves. Most of us do not even realise that what they are saying is actually within them. It is a powerful form of denial.
The expression “a pot calling the kettle black” describes the law or projection very well. Neither sees itself as black, instead each sees how black the other is.
Your life is what you experience. Other people experience it completely differently. So watch your projections and work on yourself. Understanding this law offers enormous opportunities for personal and spiritual growth.
