Universal Law Series: 5 The Law of Cause & Effect


5 ~ The Law of Cause & Effect
"What we put out into the Universe, how we treat others, how we treat ourselves … all have consequences. We reap what we sow. Every action has a reaction and a consequence.  What we put out we get back. It’s Karma …"

We have all heard that what we put out comes back to us tenfold, and if you haven't heard that one, you've most likely heard the expression "You reap what you sow" which is most likely derived from one of Jesus' parables about the gardner who sows his seeds in fertile soil. The Law of Cause & Effect, this 5th Universal Law which we are discussing in the Universal Law Series speaks of just that: cause and effect. 

So, you're angry at a colleague and are devising a plan to 'get back' at him or her for something they did to hurt you ... take care not to create the kind of karma that will come back and bite you in the butt! When angry with someone, it is best to allow your anger, to stay with the emotion, and work through it as best you can BEFORE taking action or speaking. 

This Universal Law is one that personally has been consistently difficult to enact. When I become aware of my anger, or of unhealthy thoughts that have been triggered by an event but may not be related to the present so much as it is the past, it is difficult to find my center again and let it go. It takes time and practice, over and over, to put our emotions to rest rather than act on them impulsively. 

It's so important for our benefit, and for the benefit of those we interact with that we really consider our words prior to speaking them. Because we are human before anything, we tend to get caught up in human emotions, we tend to react, rather than to respond when we are feeling trapped, or defensive. Sometimes, what we think we need to say is nothing more than poppycock. It is, therefore, very important to consider what it is we say, think, or do before acting on it.
