Over Coming Cause and Effect

Updated on March 20, 2013

Mike's Common Sense

We are spiritual beings living in physical bodies trying to navigate our way through the worlds of duality to reach our true home; the world of true spirit the soul plane. One of the most difficult challenges we face on our journey is known as cause and effect. In the worlds of duality there is always an action, followed by an equal and opposite reaction. Cause is the action, and effect is the reaction. As spiritual beings we need to strive to always be cause, and to never let ourselves become victims of being the effect of anything occurring outside of ourselves.

Life is full of challenges; things happen all of the time. It is very easy to believe that we are but leaves being blown about in the autumn wind with no real control over what happens in our lives. This is not true, and it is a negative way to think. Yes, things happen; and we often face a new and different challenge every day. These challenges are simply that, tests to find out how far we have progressed. These tests are determined by our karmic debt that we have accumulated over our many lifetimes. Every time we work through a challenge, we burn off accumulated karma.

We have several tools at our disposal to ensure that we are always acting as cause, and not as effect. A very important tool is a positive attitude; know that you are being tested and do your very best to over come your problem.

Another important tool is perseverance. Very few things in life that are important come easily. Thomas Edison once said that inventing something was ten percent inspiration, and ninety percent perspiration. This means that you should never give up on a problem; keep plugging away and do the best that you can. There is an old saying “God helps those who help themselves”. Truer words were never spoken. If you sit back and think that God will take care of your problems while you do nothing, you will often be sadly mistaken. However, if you do the best you can, and refuse to quit, you will find that God will be there to help when you really need it.

Another important tool is the HU. Whenever you feel weak, or that you can’t go on, sing HU. Singing HU whether silently to yourself, or aloud, will raise your vibrations, and fill you with love; these positive vibes will give you the strength you need to carry on.

Always remember, everything is as it should be. Don’t judge, don’t fret, and don’t worry, just do your best. God never presents any of us with a problem that we are not capable of handling.

      Once again, thanks for the reminder. I am singing it right now, and also found some good Youtubes that sing the HU.

      Hi Nemaste! It is always heart wrenching to see the pain and suffering in the world. All older souls wish they could help ease those suffering. To some extent we can by singing the HU. Every time we sing HU we contribute to our collective consciousness. If we can get enough people singing the HU we can uplift all of mankind to the next level of our spiritual evolution.

      Very wise hub, and yes, everything that happens even if it seems to be outside or ourselves, its not. I had this discussion with my mate today when discussing the polarities of life's experiences and there is perfection even when our human eyes cannot "see" it. I do feel sadness at times in seeing so much suffering in the world, even if I have the awareness that everything happens for a higher reason. I love to read hubs like this because it reinforces my path.

      Until I read your Hub, I knew nothing of Hu or the Hu song. Thanks for the little push in a big direction.

      Hi Feline Prophet! It often seems that the cause of our problems is outside of ourselves, but when you look at things from the big picture of Soul you can see that they are not. There are no accidents, everything happens for a spiritual reason. Peace to you, Mike

      Heartening words...and wise, but sometimes the cause of something can be completely out of ourselves...
