Human beings do not like to hear that they are imperfect. We do not want to hear about our frailties, and shortcomings. Many of us will avoid at all cost an evaluation of ourselves whether it be at work, or at home. We sometime avoid the truth, even if the acknowledgement of our faults may make our situations better in the future. We will sometimes defend to the extreme when people question our past actions.
It is because of this avoidance of our faults that makes the understanding of causality extremely difficult for the average person. We do not want to believe that our sufferings may be the result of our past evil (greed, arrogance, and greed) actions. We refuse to blame ourselves. We rather blame others for what happens to us.
Understanding causality makes us understand that we have our frailties and shortcoming. We must realize that we may not know God’s heart. It gives us the opportunity to plant good seeds (cause) that will produce (effects) joy in the future. We have control of our destiny. We have the ability to remove greed, arrogance, and self love from our hearts. It is not only necessary to acknowledge that we have sinned, but we must eliminate the evils in our hearts. With the purification of our hearts, we will be able to understand that God created all mankind to live a joyous life with everyone helping each other.
