Cause and Effect

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.


The universal law of cause and effect states that for every effect there is a definite cause, likewise for every cause, there is a definite effect.

Our thoughts, behaviors, and actions create specific effects that manifest and create our life as we know it. If you are not happy with the effects we have created, then we must change the causes that created them in the first place.

These causes are the decisions we make and the actions we take on a daily basis. Whether our decisions seem small and rather insignificant, or whether they are significant and transformational in nature, does not matter.

Each and every decision we have made and action we have taken, has set events into motion creating predictable and specific effects that we are now experiencing in our lives and in our world.

For E.g:  If we want the right to keep and bear arms, we need to be prepared for the devastating effects that manifest from that decision.  If we want to speak our mind with everyone we meet, we must face the effects that manifest from that decision, and if we want to open our hearts and find forgiveness, compassion and love for ourselves and others, the follow on effect will be different again.

It is up to each of us to choose well, and to remember that each decision we make, has a ripple effect across the world.

  1. Well said, and from one living in the US, we do not need to have these weapons. I am so tired of these senseless killings of innocents, and we do need to do something here ASAP. There is always a cause and an effect.

  2. Thank you Karen. So true. We are responsible for the energy we put out there.

      1. Such a sad little sweet picture. Really want to be with her, hold her or listen or whatever she needs. ❤

  3. So true Karen, but there is the perspective of the individual and the ‘collective’…individuals who make different decisions/choices still need to bear the effect of decisions made by others.

  4. Karen,
    So true: Actions have consequences.
    In 1963 the Supreme Court of the United States banned prayer from public schools. I remember that day well because I was a student in my home room awaiting the usual morning prayer and pledge to our nation’s flag when over the loud speaker came instead a command for “A moment of silence.” And not long after, the moment of silence went silent as well. That action taken some five plus decades ago of replacing God’s love and order with man’s inclination for intolerance and disarray, has in great part brought us to the consequence of this very moment.
