The Golden Rule of Cause & Effect

The Law of Cause and EffectMatthew 7:7 – “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you”

How to Tune In, Turn On, and Use the Miraculous Power of the “Law of Attraction” Through The Golden Rule of Cause & Effect

The latest buzz on entertainment television and on the net is “The Secret”. This DVD, that was recently shown on The Oprah Winfrey show, goes into great detail about the power of attraction. As with many things that are glamorized in this world, the basic means of access, the ability to turn on, and the ease of use were briefly discussed if at all.

The “Law of Attraction” is indeed a law similar in kind to gravity. Every great teacher attempted to teach this to us by saying things like “Whatever we sow, we shall reap”. In a nut shell, that explains the power of the “Law of Attraction”; however, the true power of this saying and many others is the “Principle of Cause & Effect”.

Nothing Happens by Chance

Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized.

My intent with this article is to not only show you in detail what this powerful Law is but to explain to you how to activate it and use it to achieve whatever it is in life you want. So if you are ready, let’s get started.

The great sixth Universal Principle, the Principle of Cause and Effect, embodies the idea that Law pervades the universe; that nothing happens by chance. Chance is merely a descriptive term indicating that a cause exists but is of unknown origin or not perceived. All phenomena are continuous, without break or exception.

The Principle of Cause and Effect underlies all scientific thought, ancient and modern. While many and varied disputes between the many disciplines have since arisen, they have been primarily about the details of the operations of the Principle and sometimes about the meaning of certain words. The underlying Principle of Cause and Effect has been accepted as correct by all scientists and metaphysicians. To believe otherwise would be to take the phenomena of the universe from the domain of law and order and relegate it to the control of the imaginary, a circumstance which we call “chance.”

A little consideration will prove that there can be no such thing as pure chance. Webster defines the word “chance” as: “the happening of events without apparent cause.” In a sense one would be saying that an event is outside of Law, beyond the Principle of Cause and Effect. How can something act in the phenomenal universe independent of the Laws, order, and continuity of the universe? Such a thing would be entirely independent of God and therefore superior to It. Yet there is nothing outside of God belonging to such a Law, because God is LAW. There is no room for something outside of and independent of Law. The existence of such a thing would render all natural Laws ineffective and would plunge the universe into chaotic disorder and lawlessness.

Careful examination will show that what you call chance is merely an expression relating to obscure causes; causes that you cannot perceive; causes that you cannot understand. The word “chance” is derived from the word meaning “to fall” (as the falling of dice), which approximates the idea that the fall of the dice is merely a happening unrelated to any cause. This is the sense in which the term is generally used. But upon closer examination, it can be determined that there is no chance whatsoever concerned with the fall of the dice. Each time a die falls and displays a certain number, it obeys a Law as infallible as that which governs the revolution of the planets around the sun. Behind the fall of the die are causes or chains of causes extending further than the mind could trace. They may include the position of the die in the hand, the amount of muscular energy exerted in the throw, the condition of the table, etc. All are causes, the effect of which may be perceived. Yet beyond these seen causes are chains of unseen preceding causes, all having a bearing upon the number on the die which comes up.

A Little Experiment

If a die is tossed a great number of times, the count of each number that comes up will turn out to be nearly equal; that is, an equal number of one spots, two spots, three spots, etc. Toss a coin in the air and it may come down either “heads” or “tails.” But make a sufficient number of tosses, and the heads and tails will about even up. This is the operation of the law of averages. Both the averages and the single toss come under the Principle of Cause and Effect. If you were able to examine the preceding causes, it would be clear that it was simply impossible for the die to fall other than it did under the circumstances and at that time. Given the same causes, the same results will follow. There is always a “cause” and a “because” to every event. Nothing ever happens without a cause or, rather, a chain of causes.

Confused by Paradox???

Some confusion exists by those considering this Principle due to the fact that they are unable to explain how one thing could cause another; that is, how one thing is the creator of a second thing. As a matter of fact, no thing ever causes or creates another thing. Cause and Effect deal only with events.

An “event” is “that which comes, arrives, or happens as a result or consequence of some preceding event.” No event creates another event, but is merely a preceding link in the great orderly chain. The EVENTS are the bonds between cause and effect; the force and energy of Creation. There is continuity between all events precedent, consequent, and subsequent. There is relation existing between everything that has gone before and everything that follows.

Just as you have two parents, and four grandparents, and eight great grandparents, and sixteen great great grandparents, and so on until the number of ancestors run into many millions, so is it with the number of causes behind even the most trifling event or phenomenon. Just ponder for a moment. If a certain man had not met a certain woman in the dim period of the Stone Age, you who are now reading these lines would not be here in the form that you now are.

What About Free Will?

Every thought you think, every act you perform, has its direct and indirect results which fit into the great chain of Cause and Effect.

In consideration of Free Will, remember the Law of Paradox. On one hand you do make choices and direct your lives on a conscious level. But the direction of those choices is a result of Cause and Effect, and the partially wise become disillusioned by their refusal of the acceptance of DESTINY. Mankind is both free and yet bound by necessity, depending upon the meaning of the terms and the level at which the matter is examined.

The majority of us are more or less slaves of heredity and environment and exhibit very little freedom. We are often swayed by the opinions and customs of the exterior world, and also by our own emotions, feelings, moods, etc. We show very little mastery of self. We indignantly protest this assertion saying, “I certainly am free to act and do as I please. I do just what I want to do.” We fail to explain where the “want to” and “as I please” come from. What makes us “want” to do this, that, or anything?

By mastering the LAW, we can change those “pleases” and “wants” into the “Will to will,” instead of being moved because some feeling, mood, emotion, or environmental suggestion arouses a tendency or desire within us to do so. We then become masters of our desire, not a slave to our passion.

The majority of us are manipulated by heredity and internal moods, desires, etc. — not to mention outside influences such as the suggestions and will of others stronger than ourselves. We are carried along without resistance or the exercise of our will. Moved like pawns on the chessboard of life, we play our parts and are laid aside after the game is over.

Become A Master of the Game of Life

The masters, knowing the rules of the game, rise above the level of material life. By placing themselves in touch with the higher powers of their nature, they dominate their own moods, characters, qualities, and vibration as well as the environment surrounding them. Thus they become movers in the game, instead of pawns; causes instead of effects.

The Masters do not escape the causation of the higher levels, but become one with the higher Laws. They form a conscious part of the Law, rather than being its blind instrument. While they serve on the higher levels, they rule on the material level.

There is no such thing as chance. Everything is governed by Universal Law. The infinite number of laws are but manifestations of the One Great Law, the LAW which we call God.

It is true that in the Mind of God not a butterfly wing flap goes unnoticed. Even the hairs on your head are numbered, just as “The Rule Book” says. There is nothing outside the Law. Nothing happens contrary to it. Yet do not make the mistake of supposing that mankind is but a blind robot — far from that.

You may use Law to overcome laws, and that the higher will always prevail against the lower. At last, you will reach the stage in which you seek refuge in the LAW Itself and laugh the phenomenal laws away.

If this has piqued your curiosity at all and you would like to learn more on how to easily master the Law of Attraction and the Principle of Cause and Effect, I am preparing an easy to use, step-by-step manual titled: “How to tune in, turn on, and use the miraculous power of the “Law of Attraction”. In this manual, you will discover that achieving success, health, and happiness is simply a matter of changing your mind about them.
