One of the important Universal Laws that we have to guide us on our way through life and help us to stay on track, is the Law of Cause and Effect. Every cause has an effect. Every effect has a cause. When we begin to consciously work with this Law we are taking responsibility for what we are experiencing. We use our power to think when we seek to understand the cause of the effect we are experiencing. We see how we are being a victim when we don’t think about what has caused our experiences and take responsibility. We tend to feel powerless. We are learning and growing and understanding how we can improve our experience and take charge when we work with the Law of Cause and Effect..
Buddha said “All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”
We are beginning to hear this message coming from many different sources. We hear it but to live it is a different matter. It tells us if we want to have a different experience we must change our thoughts. This entails becoming aware of the thoughts you have and as you work to do this you realise how unaware of these we generally are. Building awareness is so good and the key is to not judge these thoughts. Instead acknowledge them and your courage to be aware of them and also to realise that these are not who you are. These negative thoughts that take up so much of our thinking are the result, the effect, of our living in the illusion that we are just a physical body, an ego, on our own, under threat, in constant danger and needing to devote our lives to fitting in, trying to be safe, be liked, approved of, thought well of. In truth you are a soul, divine and as you make the journey within to discover who you really are you expand your understanding of yourself, others, the Universe and the meaning and purpose of life.
Try being aware of how often you have negative expectations and use words that focus on negative outcomes and then see how often you experience these negative outcomes. You get what you expect.
Thoughts and words are powerful. They create our reality.
