The law of cause and effect
Every moment of our lives we are either creating something or
disintegrating with our own thoughts. Remember, everything in this
universe in energy, including our thoughts. Energy is neither created nor
destroyed. Everything is vibrating at sub-atomic level but we are just
unaware of it because we cannot experience it through our five basic senses.
The only way to experience it is by going beyond our sense and being in the
conscious or awareness state. That is when and where you will realize that
we are connected. In our conscious state it is hard to comprehend, because
we tend to identify ourselves as individuals beings in the form of human
body. Everything in the universe operates under exact precision and law.
We as human beings are the highest creation amongst the 8.4 million other
species and everything is operating in harmonious way.
Well, the law of cause and effect or action and reaction is widely
misunderstood and therefore widely misused in our society today. If we
look at our lives at the most basic, fundamental level, we can see so many
problems relating to how we act and react to different situation in life.
Remember, nobody is perfect. It is our imperfect thoughts and reaction
that are causing all the miseries. Why are we doing this? The answer might
lie in our upbringing and surroundings. However, as we grow and start to
differentiate everything, we build our ego and our attachments to material
things expand. Thus we develop a conditioned mind whereby we act and
react in certain ways to everything.
When a child is born he/ she is so pure, without any attachments or ‘maya’.
As a child grows into teenager and through to adulthood, he starts to
accumulate materialistic wealth: the sort of things that gives great physical
and mental pleasure only. However, these kinds of pleasures are only
temporary they will remain here on earth as they are physical things. I relate
to life like a river where you accumulate materialistic things by flowing
down the river if life. You ignore all the spiritual things along the banks of
this river and keep flowing. According to you, life is perfect, until suddenly
you feel that the river’s current is getting stronger and you are struggling to
remove to the shore. But you have not realized is that the strong current is
leading towards a gigantic waterfall. Whatever happens next is anybody’s
guess. Your survival will depend on your ‘karma’. Every thought we create
either leads to a positive or negative reaction. So let’s analyze our thinking
and reactions through our supreme awareness and express our love and
gratitude to everyone. Remember that we are connected spiritually.
A good thought will express good vibrations and a bad one will attract
bad vibrations to and through you to whomever its indented. Remember,
everything is energy and energy vibrates at various levels. Your thought too,
becomes a particle in a subtle form and travels to its intended destination
in the form of energy. Isn’t it a bit scary to think about? However, this
is the fundamental truth. Spirituality as always taught that to us through
satsung, however, science has proven it through some DNA experiments.
So you may label this as ‘the karmic law’. ‘sowing and reaping’, ‘cause
and effects’, ‘action and reaction’. How you refer to these laws is of little
importance, but the ‘understanding’ of how it works is vitally important.
The thoughts, feelings and actions that you express in life are the seeds
that you ‘sow’. The conditions, circumstances and things that come into
your life are the harvest you reap as a result of the seeds that you sowed.
I believe we were given this precious life to serve one another and live in
harmony. We should be blessed for obtaining the true Knowledge from a
true Spiritual Teacher, our ‘Satguru’. So let us all dwell other thoughts in
our true purpose and spread the words of ‘sadbhavana’ (peace and goodwill)
to all in a practical way.
