But where does God come into helping us realize the relationship between cause and effect? To be continued……….. (see previous blog)
After the creation of human beings, what if God only observed his creation, waiting to see if this joyous world that was planned at the beginning of human beings was successful. How disappointed and sad God must be to see the sufferings caused by mankind throughout history. In the Tip of the Writing Brush, it is said that the greed and selfishness in the hearts of mankind have caused this suffering.
What if God seeing this suffering wanted to help guide his children to a joyous life of true happiness. It is with this sadness and regret that according to the Tip of the Writing Brush, God has begun to work to help us realize the relationship between cause and effect.
Lets review the law of cause and effect. Evil thoughts (greed, arrogance, and self love) and actions bring upon suffering to the individual in the future. Usually these seeds (thoughts and actions) develop in the distant future as suffering. For those who believe in reincarnation, these seeds may not develop until the next lives. Because of this delay, people have a difficulty understanding this relationship. They will continue to be evil.
What is the best way to have human beings see this relationship between cause and effect? Suppose the time lapse between cause and effect is shortened? Suppose God enters us and distinguishes our thoughts, and shows us the consequences of these evils in our minds immediately. Suppose bodily disorders and illness are placed on our bodies because of these thoughts. God is essentially shortening the time lapse between our evil thoughts, and its consequence.
When people begin to understand this relationship of cause and effect, the selfish thoughts may still exist, but they will be afraid to act for fear of suffering. Some of these people may begin to understand God’s guidance and love, and begin to see that illness and disorders are not punishment, but guidance from God to sweep the mind of evil, arrogance and self love. When the world understands God’s heart, then there will be joy with everyone helping each other.
