Spirit and the Law of Cause and Effect

Most of our troubles are bought about by exercising our own free will.

If you have a war, there will be many people, who will ask, Why does the Great Spirit not stop it? Why does the Great Spirit not try to prevent it?

The actual truth is that the people of the world are to blame. They choose to ignore the laws. We cannot escape the consequences of our actions. You cannot alter the law of spirit. What has been sown must be harvested. If you have used selfishness, you must accept the results. Pride, jealousy, envy, greed, malice, distrust and suspicion all these things, when they fructify produce war, distress and decay.

Therefore, people might ask is "free will" limited, in the sense that there are definite tendencies of events in relation to individuals.

We all have tendencies and vibrations that we do not let go. Everyone is surround by radiations and influences, many of which can affect your destiny.

When your "free will" is used correctly, it allows you to conquer all that stands in your way of the fullest expression of that part of the spirit that is within you. Because you are spirit and spirit is you.

A seed of spirit will be planted within every human soul, like a seed is planted in the earth. If you give a seed what it needs to grow, the seed will first shoot up through the earth and eventually will bloom and bursts into full flower.

The Great Spirit has planted the seed within us all and you are the gardener. It depends upon your efforts when or indeed whether the fullness of the flower is able to express itself. There is always your free will. If you keep the seed in the darkness and do not give it the light, the Great Spirit cannot be expressed through you.

The law is perfect when it is in operation. Effect always follows cause.

No individual has the power to alter by one hairs breadth the sequence of cause and effect. That which is harvested must be that which is sown in the soul of every individual. The law of cause and effect is basic, fundamental, and unalterable because you can only harvest what you sow.

Effect must follow cause with accuracy. In turn, the effect becomes the cause, by which another effect is set into motion, producing another cause. The process is a constant one.

Throughout the vast variety of the phenomena of nature, everything small or large, simple or complex follows the law of cause and effect. Nothing can interrupt that sequence.

If effect did not follow cause your world, the universe, and the vast cosmos would be chaotic. The Great Spirit, God the Deity the Supreme Power would not be the summit of love, wisdom and the perfection of all that exists.

A divine justice rules the universe, with religious and spiritual significance. If you could change the effect of some wrong doing it would break the divine justice rules, in turn this would show that the religious and spiritual law was imperfect in its operation and unjust because you could change its pattern.

Nature must follow its ordained path, oblivious to man's desire. It has tasks to perform, and will continue to do so. When man works in harmony, they reap the results. Nature can be profligate in the abundance; it has to offer to those who work in harmony with it.

Whatever good you do, you are the better for it.

Whatever selfishness you practice, you are worse for it.

You cannot cheat the natural law. You cannot say you are sorry for what you have done and automatically obliterate all the effect of the causes you set in motion.
