Law of Cause & Effect


“If you want to comprehend the causes that existed in the past, look at the outcomes as they are manifested in the present. And if you want to apprehend what results will be expressed in the future, look at the grounds that exist in the present.”

To the extent that we love others, we will be loved. To the extent that we work for others’ happiness, we will enjoy protection and support. This is the law of cause and effect.

Buddhism holds that everything is in a constant state of instability. Thus the question is whether we accept change flaccidly and are cleared away by it or whether we take the initiative and create positive changes on our own wits.

Unassuming virtue brings conspicuous reward. From the point of view of Buddhism, we never fail to receive the effect of our actions, whether good or bad; therefore, it’s meaningless to be insincere or to make-believe to be something we’re not.

Every family has its own set of issues and problems that only its members can fully understand. One thing I can say, however, is that, no matter what kind of people your parents are, they are your parents. If you did not have those parents, you would not be alive. It is important we understand & respect this despite their short comings and misgivings. Believe me…

Present effects are due to karmic causes from the past. However, future effects arise from the causes we make in the present. It is always the present that is important. It is what we do in the present that chooses our future; our past causes do not govern our future as well. Buddhism points that no matter what kind of karmic causes we have made in the past, through the causes we make in the present we can achieve a happier & bright future.

I rejected my chaotic past and the cause of that were cosmic & karmic catastrophe’s.  The only way to make way for my future is to accept the past and to make the present changes I need in order to move forward for my own and my family’s betterment.

Love your parents; love your family and mostly, treat people right despite their standing in life as whatever we choose to do in our life has tremendous karmic effect on our present lives and the future as well.

    Really enjoyed reading this. How very true your words. Everything we do, think and feel towards others and ourselves lays the foundation for the future. May we all strive to vibrate at a higher frequency.


    1. Thank you Nareen. I truly believe whatever we think and do now, truly reflects our future. Our luck and our blessings will be the effect of our past and present actions. I am glad you enjoyed this post. All the best in life, Jenny

    hi is mornday word be blesset;;;DOT,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever — do not abandon the works of Your hands.” Psalm 138:8

    Thoughts on to day

    God has a purpose and plan for each of our lives. The greatest thing we can do is to find that purpose and live it out. We can trust his purpose in us because it is based on his wisdom and love. As long as we seek his will, we’re not going to do anything that can ultimately spoil his purpose in us. Yes, we may at times stray from the perfect channel he wants us to travel, but we never get totally out of the main channel. As long he does not abandon us, (and he promised he never would forsake us he will use us) for his purposes.


    O Sovereign God, help me discern today what my life is intended to fulfill. Thank you for loving me and promising to walk beside me every step of my life. I live trusting that you will never forsake me. Through Jesus I pray. Amen.

  5. Thank you for this bit of inspiration…I, too, believe in karma and although it does seem a bit selfish (because one follows the ideology to be nice to someone in fear that if not, something bad will happen to them in return) may one can transcend that at one point to just be kind to others our of the simple kindness of their hearts…meaning they expect nothing in return.


    1. I agree Frances…

    I am sorry about my bad english. In other words, humans have had to plan his life. from adolescents. Outcomes at maturity is the accumulation of work during adolescence, as well as the results obtained in old age. What we get, indeed we should get. We’re talking about the ‘goodness’, which is difficult to ‘do’. Nice writing and full of meaning, you are an intelligent. 🙂


    1. Thank you Hilal for the very sweet comment. No need to apologize as we all speak universally.All the best, Jenny
