Get to Know the Law of Cause and Effect and Release Unhappiness
In this universe, there is the law of cause and effect. In this grand universe, there is no coincidence, and everything has its cause and the effect. It is not limited to human relations, but it is the law penetrating this grand universe. For that purpose, God gives us freewill. That is, that there exists a freedom that can be chosen by the freewill means that the responsibility of that result has to be taken by ourselves. Simply said, it is to reap what you have sown. If one made the cause of a bad thing, that which is produced from that bad cause has to be necessarily resolved by the one who has made the cause.
The earth is being polluted now. And people are hurting each other around the world, and they are going to make a war with nuclear weapons. But God does not say anything. It is because we humankind have the task to learn at the planet level of the earth. We are crew members of the spaceship of the earth boarding it together. The borders on the earth, like tattoos, are only the territorial instinct of humankind. The earth is really a beautiful planet given by God. having said, "Learn love here. Practice it. Live here happily." In spite of that, humankind are killing each other, insisting on their own race and religion, and carelessly discharges a pollutant saying, it will be all right just as long as their own country does not mind.
How is this going on when we are killing each other and making nuclear wars on the earth? The earth is rotating and the layer of air is moving around it. As an extreme example of cause and effect, it is a situation in which we have dropped a nuclear bomb in some place, and the polluted air from the nuclear explosion is going around the sphere called the earth. As a result, all of humankind on the earth will be ruined. By doing that much, are you going to kill your own loving companions, your loving brothers? It is the place of such learning.
Under the slogan of eco, women are also standing up assertively for the future environment for the children. Considering the future of the earth leads also to considering the future of humankind. Humankind might have developed at last to the extent that they have the global viewpoint that they are the earth humans. It is the law that when a cause is made, then the result necessarily has to be resolved by those who have made the cause. When we humankind of the earth continue to pollute the environment, air, and water more than this, the result will fall on those who are living on the earth, and we are to pay for it. The law of cause and effect is the major premise of our practice to learn love and it is also the law of the cosmos.
Cause and effect makes sense also in the life of each of us. There are ones who are saying, "I won't believe in God which is invisible. So, I can do anything." But it returns to him in time without exception. Even if it does not return to him while he is living now, the spirit is living being transmigrating eternally, going back and forth between this world and that world.
What has happened around you is based on all you have chosen. Before being born to this world, we have made the plan of your own lives. It involves not only what kind of persons to make a family relation, but also your place of birth, situation, and the various events that happen at the turning point of the life.
Therefore, the life and situation into which each of us is being put is by no means a coincidence. It is what you have determined before coming here to development yourself and learn, which can only be done by you. Your present life is the consequence of what you have chosen by yourselves.
To learn love and develop yourself, all exists as it is, your present family and its spiritual relation are given, and the life as it is now exists. Considering these facts, there is nothing but gratitude.
Whether one gets a disease or not, a life is a life. Even if one is on his sick bed, he can live with deep love. He can give courage and hope for living to other people. The one who could do that is a person called Helen Keller. Why has she appeared taking on such a triple handicap? It is not her karma. As an angel of light, she has come down having made a plan of a triple handicap with a mission to convey that no matter how much the body is damaged one can live brightly as a child of God, that spirituality itself is the divinity of a human, and that the physical body is only a cloth of the spirit.
Since a woman is receptive energy, she is apt to wonder why only she has to suffer so far as feeling victimized. But it is the consequence of what you have done. To explain this, there is the law of cause and effect in the Five Articles. All the things are the consequence of what you have chosen, and you have to be responsible for what you have done. If you think so, you can overcome any kind of difficulty, can't you?
This difficulty is cultivating me! All the past can't be useless! When you can make use of a given situation with the mind of gratitude, the time now shines splendidly, and a more splendid happiness will come from now on. This is the good usage of the law of cause and effect. Since this kind of consequence, or difficulty, exists, we can become a person of more powerful and deep love. And so I could have done such a splendid work and have had this splendid happiness. Everybody, please let us create such cause and effect situations.
This law of cause and effect is the fundamental principle of universe, and it flows distinctly beyond our everyday life and our spirits. So I think we have to raise our children in such a way so as to confirm this fact firmly. "No matter what may happen, that which is around you is the consequence of all what you have chosen," so "By all means, you have to be responsible for what you have done." So, "You are free to choose your own life by your free will, but once you have chosen it you have to be responsible for it."
And it is to let your children choose their own life by themselves. "Once you have chosen it, Mom is supporting it, but you have to accept the consequence of it and do your best." It should not be done by the mother to direct the child and put her own sense of value, and to convert her own dream into the child, and make the child a means of realizing her own dream.
The life of a child belongs to the child. Having a choice, even if the result of that choice is not advantageous, is the necessary for the learning of that child. In that regard, I would like you please to support them warmly. By doing so, your children can be aware firmly that they have to reap what they have sown based on their own self-responsibility. And it would enable those children to obtain a life of happiness in the true sense.
