What makes going through the path of causality so difficult, and at the same time so special. There are two paths in the world, the world’s path, and the path of causality. In the world’s path you can seem to get away with anything as long as no one sees you; but in the path of causality, everything is reflected back to you. In the world’s path, one is at lost when sufferings or difficulties arise. In the path of causality, one understands why suffering and joy occur. But understanding causality by itself may not get you through the path. What does this mean?
The world is a reflection of our minds. Causality operates in a manner to purify our minds. Events occur that may go against our wishes. Understanding causality may help us understand these occurrences. Yet sometime despite our understanding of causality, we become angry, or worry about these events. We tend to revert to our old thoughts and actions. We continue to plants bad seeds that will bring upon more suffering. We must not only understand causality, we must resolve to remove the existing evils (greed, arrogance, and self love) in our minds when confronted with sufferings. Causality becomes a self-cleansing process of the mind.
In the world, there are sunny days, and cloudy days. Every type of day is manifested by our minds. With each manifested day, if we go through with a purity of mind, then every day will eventually become a sunny day.
