There are many people that do not believe in the law of causality. The law of causality states that good thoughts and actions brings forth joy, and evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) thoughts and actions brings forth suffering in the future. Although the western world does not believe that there is a relationship between our thoughts and our future, the judicial system operates on this principle of cause and effect. Let us take the example of the recent George Zimmerman case.
George Zimmerman was found innocent of the murder of a young individual yesterday. Yes the jury and the world knew for a fact that Mr. Zimmerman had killed the youth with his own gun. The jury determining the cause of the killing (effect) would determine George’s fate.
Without an actual witness viewing what had occurred prior to the shooting, the prosecution of Mr. Zimmerman would be difficult. The prosecution team wanted to prove that Mr. Zimmerman’s had a prejudice past (cause) toward African Americans. They wanted the jury to believe that this prejudice would lead to the killing of the defenseless child. At the conclusion of the trial, the jury could not conclude that Mr. Zimmerman was prejudice toward African Americans, or what had occurred prior to the shooting. It is because of this mystery of the origin (cause) that the jury had to determine a not guilty verdict.
If we are proponents of the law of cause and effect, we believe that this natural law will eventually determine the fate of Mr. Zimmerman and the youth. The realization of this self-regulating process will eventually bring salvation to the world with everyone helping each other. Ponder over the events that occur in your lives. Ponder their origin!
