Laws of Cause and Effect


causalityThe Law of Cause and Effect is based in science and metaphysics both. We all naturally learn about the relationship between Cause and Effect on an unconscious level very early in life. When we began crying and mom brought us a warm bottle of milk to drink, we learned that crying in such a way usually got us what we were after.

Causality is a term denoting the direct relationship of the cause and the Effects. This defines that there is relationship established between one action causing another occurrence to happen, either by physical means or non-physical means.

This law is not observant of assessing judgment, it simply is a working force. A piece of metal fell off an airplane and hit your friend in the head, who happened to be walking to the party store on the corner, killing him instantly. Of course, you are upset, but what would you blame if anything? Would you blame gravity or the plane? Could you blame the timing of your friend, leaving the house to be at that precise spot as the piece of metal hit him? Cause and Effect does not assign blame, nor does it do any good for you to do so either.

The Law of Cause and Effect is a part of life that happens continuously and happens independent of us understanding it, yet is a principle we use all of the time.

The earth rotating a single rotation, causing day to become night. The wind causing the clouds to move at a faster speed. These are all events of Cause and Effect that we did not instigate.

We do learn valuable lesson because of the Law of Cause and Effect. Through direct experience and learning from example, we are able to recognize certain causes as having Effects that we either wish to experience, or run from.

If you see others getting drunk, then notice they always felt terrible from hangovers, you might not wish to actually personalize that experience. You learned second hand what they went through. The cause was the alcohol, the Effects was a hangover the next morning.

Sometimes we don’t learn from example and must experience the Cause and Effect directly. After all, people when these people get drunk, they seem to be having a good time. So, you get drunk and receive a hangover. What did you expect?

CauseAndEffectOften times, we need to experience first hand the relationship between Cause and Effect. It is sometimes the repetition of this law that teaches us what we need to know.

Mathematics may be able to explain the Law of Cause and Effect, yet not really explain why entirely. Metaphysics understands there is a scientific formula for this principle and can acknowledge this without understanding the formula for it. What gets interesting is that there are metaphysical principles that understand the Law of Cause and Effect as a mental and universal conscious force that helps to explain what role this law has on us.

In metaphysical circles as well as some Eastern religions, there is the Law of Attraction principle that the Law of Cause and Effect works in. The relationships between these two laws are well established and cannot be separated from each other.

If you constantly cause others misery and constantly feel pain, there is no one to blame for this. The cause is the misery you gave, the Effects is the pain you received. Cause and Effect is realized in the Law of Attraction very naturally. This law tells us that what we send out, we get back in return. Sending out positive deeds returns to us positive manifestations.
