Cause & Effect Law #5

Can we link actual Causes to their Effects? 
Cynthia F. Davidson from the Wisdom Wheel Cause & Effect card
(For a set of these cards, stones or a poster visit our website www.thewisdomwheel.com)

The Law of Cause & Effect is about karma, and understanding how specific causes lead to predictable effects. Think about the effects you have caused in your life, by having intentions, goals and challenges. As you've probably heard it said, 'Thoughts are things...' So are emotions, and other energies.
During the coming 10 days, try to retrace the relationship(s) between decisions you've made. What were their true origins and outcomes? Reconsider the chain of causes and effects. Have you had what you wanted? Or have you been surprised? Do your actions originate most often from your logical mind, your heart or your intuition? How often do you let spirit lead?  

Make Cause & Effect your watch words for these ten days
Ask for wisdom to be shown to you about Cause & Effect, each morning, and evening. 
Write the words Cause & Effect down where you'll see them often; in your journal, on a rock or a Post It note attached to your mirror. 
Talk about Cause & Effect with friends, family & co-workers. 
Experiment with tracing multiple Causes & Effects as you learn more.
Look for news stories which demonstrate how Effects are Caused in the world at large.  
Share what you learn, in the comments box below, or our Wisdom Wheel Facebook page.

Here are some wise words about the intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of the Law of Cause & Effect

The Law of Cause and Effect is also known as the Law of Karma and is basically understood as ‘you reap what you sow’… Karma is a learning tool of spirit which manifests through physical circumstances. That which one places into the universe, one receives back, ten-fold. Karma does not discriminate…When we think something happens by chance it is only because we do not recognize the law. Nothing escapes the law of Karma. …Karmic law requires that every human wish finds ultimate fulfillment. Therefore, desire is the chain that binds mankind to the re-incarnation wheel. Karma is attracted only where the magnet of the personal ego still exists.
Margo Kirtikar, Ph.D. in Cosmic and Universal Laws

A life without cause is a life without effect.

To all facts there are laws, the effect has its cause.
Lord Lytton

Thoughts are causes and conditions are effects.
Brian Tracy 

Experience only teaches us, how one event constantly follows another; without instructing us in the secret connection, which binds them together, and renders them inseparable.
David Hume, Scottish philosopher

For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either. The ends of things and their beginnings are concealed from him in an impenetrable secret. He is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness out of which he was drawn and the infinite in which he is engulfed.
Blaise Pascal in Pensées

Cause and effect, means and ends, seed and fruit cannot be severed; for the effect already blooms in the cause, the end preexists in the means, the fruit in the seed.
Ralph Waldo Emerson American author

All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire.

A new psychology needs to facilitate people in understanding that emotions, whether love and appreciation, or anger and anxiety,are all energies that have to be accounted for in the human system. Accounted for means they come under the laws of physics and the law of cause and effect. Each of us personally is accountable for the effects of our emotions and attitudes. Negative emotional energies stack up in the human system, then translate into mental, emotional and physical ailments if not brought into balance
Doc Childre in The HeartMath Solution

To cure the violence, we must identify and heal the causes of hatred and violence. If we don't deal with the causes we will never be safe.
Peter Yarrow

The greater the feeling of inferiority that has been experienced, the more powerful is the urge to conquest and the more violent the emotional agitation.
Alfred Adler (1870-1937) Austrian psychiatrist

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
Wayne Dyer (1940 - ) American author and motivational speaker, books include Excuses Begone

God created the law of free will, and God created the law of cause and effect. And he himself will not violate the law. We need to be thinking less in terms of what God did and more in terms of whether or not we are following those laws.
Marianne Williamson

If you want to understand the causes that existed in the past, look at the results as they are manifested in the present. And if you want to understand what results will be manifested in the future, look at the causes that exist in the present.
Buddhist sutra

We are all ready to be savage in some cause. The difference between a good man and a bad one is the choice of the cause.
William James

The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of a mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.
Wilhelm Stekel

If properly understood, the Law of Karma is a law which gives infinite hope. It says that a man’s destiny is in his own hands. It says that he shall depend upon himself. He is the one to decide on the pattern of the experience to come. He is the master of his destiny. He is the architect of his fate. He has nothing to fear in this universe, nothing except his own wrong actions and thoughts. . . . According to this view, the Law of Karma is not a doctrine of fatalism. On the contrary, it is a doctrine of high orderliness, serving as the basis of the moral order in the whole universe, and the attitude instilled into man by this Law is fearlessness.
Swami Chidananda
