The Secret of Life

The secret of life is CAUSALITY. We reap what we have sowed. We cannot blame God, or others for what happens to us. We must look within ourselves when we suffer or have inconveniences. We must not blame the messenger of the bad news. God sends many messenger daily. It is said that sometimes God makes the bad thrive. The messenger can be someone close to us, or it can even be a total stranger. How many of us have had road rage due to some stranger who we feel have violated our space on the road? Was the stranger just a messenger delivering the effects of our previous transgressions?

Anger and hate are often caused by events that cause us inconveniences. We may be arrogant in thinking that others, or even God have given us these inconveniences. But in reality, causality says that we are responsible for these inconveniences. It is said that the world is a mirror. What happens to us is a reflection of our minds. If we understand this, the stranger who carelessly tailgates us will be a harmless annoyance. We can carefully navigate the situation with calm.

Causality gives us the opportunity to create a future. We can create a future that is joyous if we react positively (without greed or arrogance) to any situations; or we can continue to create suffering if we respond negatively. We have control of our own destiny.
