It is very easy to take the high road when everything is going with the wind. How easy it is to extol virtue, and tell others how to behave. But what happens when there is an inconvenience that obstructs our happiness. We often lapse back to our pre conversion mind of selfishness. It is not easy to take the high road when you are going against the wind. Why does God place these inconveniences in our lives in spite of our supposed religious conversion into a good person?
The answer may be causality. Understanding causality may be the process of purifying our minds (making us good). We sow what we reap. When the effect of negative causality appears, we have two choices. One choice would be to react negatively to the event, causing more suffering in the future. The other choice would be to accept the negative event in a positive manner, resulting in the cancelling of the bad causality. To say that we have changed is not enough; causality continues to test our resolve until our minds become pure. For some, this process may take a long time.
We may continue to persist that we know God’s truth. Some say just by declaration, God will save us; but causality may make us prove our declaration.
