Some say that the law of “cause and effect” gives one nothing to look forward to in the future, especially if one has been evil. The law of cause and effect state that good thoughts bring forth joy, and evil thoughts and actions bring forth suffering in the future. But contrary to this belief of doom and gloom, this law gives a person hope in the future. It is true that one must reap what he or she has sown; but if one thinks or acts well now, one has planted a seed that will sprout joy in the future.
It is with this law that even the most evil person on this earth can become good in the far out future. One only has to remove greed and arrogance from the mind. When this happens one is assured of joy from this action.
In summary, this law of cause and effect gives everyone the opportunity to have a joyous future.
