It is human nature to deny that one is at fault. For example, it is difficult for an alcoholic or gambler to admit their addictions. Many will agree that without their admission of a problem, they will continue to drink and gamble.
The law of causality is also difficult for people to accept. The law of causality states that good thoughts and behaviors set forth a joyous future, and evil thoughts and behaviors set forth sufferings in the future. Without understanding this concept, we are like the compulsive gambler who refuses to believe he or she has an addiction. We are at loss when suffering happens to our love ones or to us. More often when sufferings occur, we scoff at the idea that they result from our past sins. We deny our faults. We do not want to admit that our loved ones or we have sinned or have behaved poorly in past lives. We have a difficulty accepting this self-regulating concept of purifying our minds. We adamantly refuse to believe that we are at fault.
But like the gambler or the alcoholic, we must face our problems. We must admit that we have sinned. We must accept the law of causality as a self-regulating process of purifying the minds. Understanding causality puts the onus on oneself, instead of blaming others for one’s sufferings. We are not perfect, but we can be perfect by understanding and applying the principles of causality. Causality gives us an opportunity to create a joyous life. It is a simple principle; be good, and you will have joy. Causality is not pessimistic and sinister; it is opportunistic, and good. Sweep evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) from your minds. Causality is the truth of God that will eventually bring peace to all mankind, and a joy that will last for eternity with everyone helping and caring for each other.
