This Universe runs upon a magnificent framework of ‘cause’ and ‘effect’. Any given cause or event will result in a predictable and equal effect or result. There is no random behaviour in any orderly Universe, only a bouquet of possibilities.
As mortals, we experience a statistically significant amount of physical cellular mortality, known as the ageing process. This process starts at birth, and pursues its inevitable course to death. In between, some of us get old, while others simply get older. Our age itself is not what is significant, bur rather the importance we attach to it. At certain times, a trial of ‘dis-ease’ may appear to test us, usually followed by a ‘cure’. Both are but lessons of Love.
The healing arts and sciences often search for the causes of diseases; but if we examine the diseases themselves and their underlying causes, we realise they are one and the same.
In an orderly Universe, no therapy is complete until cause equals effect in space – time. When the lesson concerning the cause of the disease is learned, the cure is immediate and absolute.
The quality of our future depends upon our present thoughts, in a cause and effect relationship. There is no sin, but a misunderstanding and no punishment, but a consequence. We recognise that thoughts affect our emotional, mental and spiritual states. Thoughts are powerful tools in our physical being, for ordering or disordering. Ultimately, thought is the cause, and life itself is the effect.
Our outer world has its victims, while our inner Soul has its victory. We seek freedom from anger, fear and guilt, but this peace of mind is obtained only through the message of our Soul. Our Soul’s message maintains that all is Love, yet all is law. If we attempt to avoid our lessons of Love, law dictates that we repeat those lessons until we pass Love’s course. School is the same everywhere! What we fear comes near, and what we flee begins to follow us. What we follow, flees, and what we love, we live, until we are moved to transcend beyond it.
Whatever we condemn, we create, attract, or become until we love. This is again the law of cause and effect, in space – time. Upon self-mastery we understand and use this principle to our advantage. As masters we alter our minds and thoughts, and thereby cause alterations in our environment or reality and our lives begin to change. This is because our inner Soul rules and not our outer world. Now we are masters of cause and effect.
