Causality plays no favorites. Rich people, poor people, religious people, atheist, aristocracy, and commoners have all something in common. The law of causality rules over us. We reap what we sow. This is why both suffering and joy exists in the world. We see, yet we do not see. The world does not see the relationship between the cause and effect. We do not believe that we have lived before (reincarnation).
Where does God fit in a world that regulates itself? God created this world and has sent his prophets and messiahs to bring the message of joy. Yet we do not understand their message. We believe that suffering is good for the soul, or it arises from God’s will. We believe that we can create our own happiness, sometimes at the expense of others. We believe that God requires praise and sacrifice, like an emperor.
God does not punish us. We bring suffering on ourselves. We must spread the truth of causality, so that suffering gradually disappears. Gradually because understanding causality by itself does not automatically bring upon joy. It gives us an understanding why we suffer or have joy. By this process, we can continue to purify our minds, and eliminate greed, arrogance and self love.
It is this importance of understanding causality that we pray to God, to help the world understand the truth that will change the world.
