Never a Truer Word

Taken from another thread, where questions of past lives were raised.
..............................................................................................................

We are a product of all that has gone before. We are a culmination of ourselves in all that we have done.
Our Motivations now, are varied by the conditioning we cling to as a result of our choices in all that has gone before.

We can strive to recapture the vision of our past lives, but to do so we step over the obvious consequence of those lives, ie. ‘Ourselves’ as we are now!
We are the Consequence of our own past motivations.

Cause : Effect : Consequence …a universal formula which governs all things.

The Cause is our motivation, which begins in our thoughts. All power originates in our thought, for it is within our thought that we exercise our divine choice.We choose either to cleanse ourselves from the dependence of sensation; or we choose to remain bound by its chains of conditioning to the material world for another life.

Our choice, our thoughts, our motivations… are our own responsibility and belong to no one else. How often however, do we step over our responsibility, in delusion and self deception, using ‘external’ reasons as an excuse for not facing ourselves.

We react in a certain way to situations according to our own choice. We are ‘not’ compelled by external circumstances. We always have the choice. Our internal reaction gives birth to our motivated external reaction ….which in turn is our ‘Cause.’
Cause produces Effect.
This is the Reciprocal reaction from others in return from our own original reaction.

If ‘our’ original internal and external reactions have a benign motivation, they are most likely to produce a benign, Reciprocal reaction.
If we create a negative hotspot of energy, that energy will be discharged to a level which matches it or is even more dense.
If we create a positive hotspot of energy, that energy will discharge itself to a level which matches it or is even more sublime. The process is very simple.

However… when the Reciprocal reaction is correspondingly negative we look for excuses to avoid the Consequence which we paved the way for.
Our simple lack of understanding at how the simple law of Cause, Effect, Consequence works, allows us to avoid the Responsibility of our original Motivated thought!

The cycle continues, because when we generate a negative 'Reciprocal' reaction, and avoid the responsibility we had by inviting it, we use the negative Reciprocal reaction as an excuse…not only to avoid our own responsibility, but to go ahead and produce even more motivated negativity ourselves.

We can look to the past as much as we want for answers about ourselves… But we are a product of our past right now. We need look no further than the Mirror then, to see all that has gone before, and to decide the pathway of all that is, and shall be.

Past, Present, Future, ...they are one and the same
....and they are our own sole responsibility.
