Reincarnation and Causality

I am a proponent that for every action, there is a reaction. I believe this theory for everything that occurs in this world. This includes sufferings, misfortunes, as well as joy and happiness. I realize that for some people who are suffering, this will be difficult to comprehend because they are not aware of or are not yet able to comprehend the universe as it relates to them. This is a concept of reincarnation and causality (karma, innen).

The Concept of causality may propose that we suffer today because we are bad. Nobody wants to be labeled as bad, and many skeptics will certainly refute this for this reason; they will say that it is like God labeling people bad with a scarlet letter. This will also incorrectly send a message that the people who are not experiencing suffering are good people.

But I believe that Cause and effect have no time limitations. The effects of our actions may not develop until the next lives. We have all sinned, whether we know it to be true from our own memories, or from past lives which we have no recollections. For this reason, we do not know what waits around the corner, whether it is good or bad news. Causality warns the world, that we eventually reap what we sow. Some will say that our soul keeps account of our credits and debits, releasing them at opportune times as joy and suffering. But it is time that makes the relationship between cause and effect irrelevant. We cannot connect the effect to the cause. We do not understand that God’s justice always prevails in this world.

Enter a new religion that states that God has descended from Heaven to help mankind understand causality. God tells us that he will begin to work because he sees the path of suffering in the world. God will begin to place illness as guidance. God will begin to shorten the time lapse between the cause and effect, making the relationship easier to understand. That illness or suffering is God informing you of evil (greed, arrogance, and self-love) in your mind today. God gives you a glimpse of the future by this guidance.

This guidance is what makes our religion so unique to other religions that also believe in reincarnation and causality. Again it is our behavior and thoughts today, which determines our happiness in the future. We determine our own fate. Please visit for more information on a religion that may change your life.

    “Passing Away for Rebirth” (Denaoshi)
    In contrast to the usual idea that death is the final end of life, the term indicates that dying is a departure toward starting life anew in this world.
