Recently, there was an incident of a car accident, where the survivor commented that God was definitely protecting her, and her family. But where was God in the countless other accidents that resulted in fatality? Where was God in the Nazi death camps, where was God at 9-11? What makes this lady so special as to get God’s protection?
Why did God not stop the terrorist that dreadful day in New York? Why does God not punish the murderers, the child molester, and the dirt bags of this world? Why do they continue to cause suffering in this world? Where was God to stop them?
We can say that God has no power to help us; we can say that God refuses to help us, or God does not exist. But suppose, what occurs in the world is a reflection of our minds, and God has no influence on the daily occurrence of our lives. Suppose heaven can wait, and we have many lifetimes on this earth and go through many rebirths. Suppose we determine our own destiny in future lives, by our actions of today. This is the law of causality. Causality gives us the opportunity to purify our minds, resulting in joy in the future.
But there are many who do not understand causality. They believe that their selfish acts have no consequences, and continue their selfish ways. But the laws of causality have no exception. What they sow, they will reap in the future. They will suffer in their next lives.
We must spread the truth of causality, so that only joy will blossom in the future. Heaven is a visionary, but suffering and joy exist today. Causality explains why we suffer or have joy. God has given us a process where we can all live a joyous life.
