The Christmas Carol the Scrooge gives us hope. It is a story of a man that was pure in the beginning, but life experiences had made him selfish, arrogant, and greedy. By the gift of God, he was able to see his past, present, and future from a perspective of an observer. At the end of this fictional story, the Scrooge becomes a good man, and he lives the rest of his life in joy. Unfortunately we cannot see our future like the Scrooge. We cannot see the relationship between our behavior and our future.
But can we see our future like the Scrooge? In one of the sacred books, God tells us that we cannot understand causality. We see suffering, and we see evil actions. We see people having joy, and we see philanthropy. Could there be a relationship between our actions and thoughts and our future. The Scrooge saw the light of causality.
Look at how causality (suffering or joy) is working in the world, and you will see the journey taken before. January 30, 1892 Instructions (Osashizu).
If one believes in causality, one will not be able to do the evils that occur in the world today. Initially, this may be due to the fear of the future; but when one begins to remove evil from the heart, one will begin to understand the joy in helping others. By this process, one will become spirited. Can causality be the truth of heaven that will eventually settle the world?
