The Cause, but where is the Effect?

Some people believe that whatever we say or do , as long as no one sees or hears it , it is all right. Is it proper to talk behind someone’s back? Is it all right to steal as long as we do not get caught?  In the Osahizu, it is written:

The world’s path is a path of manifestations, whereas God’s path is the path of the heart.  In the world’s path, you can do whatever you want and get away with it, so long as no one sees you do it. But in the path of the heart, it all comes to bear on yourself.        Osahizu January 27, 1891

The expression “it comes to bear on yourself” you are probably wondering what it means. Is this talking about cause and effect? Imagine whatever we do good or bad, it comes back to us in joy or suffering in the future.  Would this prevent many of us from thinking or  performing evil (greed, arrogance, and self love)?  Possibly, but many of us do not see this relationship between what we do now and the future. When this relationship is understood,  greed, arrogance, and self love will disappear. Everyone will start to help each other.  Only joy will blossom in the future.
