Cause and Effect…? Feel stuck in a Loop? Can it be Changed?

Back in 2013, I wrote about Karma and it being “the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence that decides their fate in future existences”. This idea came up recently at an interesting talk I attended in Bristol where the presenter asked… Are you ‘At Cause’ or ‘At Effect’?… And I realised that actually we are all dealing with both all the time… and is actually fundamental to our ability to make choices and overcome problems but may seem a bit paradoxical…

Cause and Effect is a fundamental principle in all scientific study. Where there is any effect, an event, an action, a movement, there will have been something that caused it. Where we play around with causes, we are experimenting with potential outcomes, effects, in order to understand a process better or to find a way to create a particular result. Where there is something unexplainable, there will be a cause or an effect that is not yet understood or may not be even measurable or detectable. Hence why some, if not all, accepted scientific theories are considered truth until proven different… we can never know everything and there is always room for new understanding… this is the natural process of evolution. This not only applies to our physical World but also to our psychological and emotional journeys.

Self-Development… Want change?… The Paradox of Cause and Effect is also the Gift… Do we each Cause our life circumstances? Or is someone else responsible? …”That happened to me in the Past, will it always shape my experience in the future?”… ” Why do I keep experiencing the same disappointment/ failure/ unhappiness/ distress…?” … It is an accepted idea in Holistic Health & Development that ‘As above, so below, As within, so without’, which means that whatever your circumstances, whatever you are seeing and experiencing around you, some part of you is also influencing the situation, whether by your actions, inaction, inability, vulnerability… you are a piece in the puzzle. Although this may feel uncomfortable to realise or even comprehend, it is a Gift because it means that at any point, you can take responsibility for your role, you can say ‘No More’, you can decide to develop yourself, heal something or learn something new that changes your energy and in so doing influences the Whole Bigger Picture.

The Cause or Effect may not yet be Evident… As with scientific study, you as an individual, or even we as a society, as humanity, may not yet be able to realise or comprehend a Cause or an Effect; we can only make conclusions on what we know, learn and understand. Patience, tenacity and a willingness to understand will help us all move forward into a more sustainable, loving, fulfilling World. Take back your power, empower others, decide to face and resolve whatever the Cause or the Effect.. find the Truth and move beyond it… Step forward 🙂

Has your Life Got Momentum ??! Not Enough or Too Much?

Does your Life consistently and enjoyably flow from one moment to the next? Do you Love everything about it? Is it coherent or a bit random and challenging? Does it confuse you sometimes and you are left feeling stressed and not knowing the right course of action? Or does it run on full pelt with you feeling you cannot change anything? I wrote earlier this year about how life can feel chaotic but that actually there are deeply held complex patterns of behaviour at work; I have also written about Love being one of the most powerful driving forces in our lives but so is any powerful emotion such as anger or fear. Is this what gives us our Momentum? And do we have a choice when we feel compelled to behave or react in a certain way? Can we step away from the Patterns? What actually is Momentum?

Momentum is defined as ‘the quantity of motion of a moving body’ or ‘the impetus, driving power of a physical object or course of events’. It is that feeling when running downhil and you cannot stop… it feels compelling, flowing, pushing you on… Should life feel like this? Is it under your control? Are you deciding your destiny or are you being carried along by others or life situations – relationships, heath or work? Or do you just feel still with no momentum at all?
Momentum Forms… beyond your feelings and emotions about every day events, beyond all the thinking about personal goals and all the desire about what you want and how you want to achieve it, beyond all the building of your security and stability in the world, beyond all this, there is a much deeper influence on our existence which can upset all the rest…. one that I have only started to sense fairly recently due to it usually being drowned out by everything else…!?
Your Reason WHY… What gets you really motivated? What do you feel passionate about? What excites you or makes you feel really happy? What CAUSES you to take ACTION?… This is your WHY! When you have not found your WHY or have become disconnected from it (through life disappointments or trauma), life can become routine, without direction, still or frustrated because your search for fulfillment never satisfies. Cyclical negative behaviour or continued life obstacles and ‘bad luck’ can also result from your WHY not being harmonised…
But It’s Not Just YOU!! This is going on for everyone. We are not isolated individuals. Our social groups, I believe, are formed from common Causes, a deep interconnected momentum we are all innately drawn to… but the flip side to that as well is becoming aware of being attracted to disempowering self-destructive connections when Causes have become distorted and social behaviour is divisive or abusive. Resolve to make your Actions empowering to All <3
