The following is a verse from the Osashizu concerning Causality.
You feel it is more than you can bear. Listen well and understand. The path (cause and effect) is the truth for eternity. You must quiet the mind and settle it in the heart. Day after day, you wonder why things turn out the way they do. Instead, be spirited. July 3, 1900
In summary, we cannot stop the effect of our previous actions or thoughts. But we can accept them spiritedly when they sprout; realizing that we can have a joyous future by our actions and thoughts of today. Remove evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) thoughts from your minds today. Be spirited and look forward to a joyous future!
