92/Reflections On Spiritual Practice/The Way Causality Works
On Spiritual Practice
Brother Initiate Lu Ren, California, USA Sometimes
when we are ill, or have disasters and frustrations, we think God is unfair,
and we feel mistreated, wronged or hurt, not knowing to whom to reveal our
heart. The laws of the universe, including that of causality, have always
been true and impartial. Nothing escapes the net of justice. We feel things
are unfair because we are forgetful and cannot look very far back or ahead.
Strict and monotonous as they might seem, these laws repeatedly remind us
of the ephemerality of this world by means of birth, aging, illness and death;
they make us aware that we have often violated the rules with many of our
ignoble thoughts and actions.
world is a huge arena, in which we have to abide by the rules whether we join
its game voluntarily or not. If we don't, we will always lose and attempt
to take revenge, and there will never be an end to this game. We have to obey
the rules (precepts) and follow a certain path (an enlightening method) under
the guidance and protection of a Master, to get out of this labyrinth and
discover a whole new world beyond.
