Cause and Effect

The Universe holds nothing against us, there is no vindictive God. We cannot destroy the Law but we can and may so alter our position in It that old sequences of cause and effect, which have produced bondage, sickness, trouble, and unhappiness may instantly become converted into new sequences which will produce the opposite results. This is salvation.

Everything in manifestation runs on time track runs on a time track which is a sequence of a particular chain of cause and effect. But we can erase any such sequence and set in motion a new causation by using the same power of the Law.

The law of Mind is the law of cause and effect. Thought or idea is the invisible cause; manifestation or created form is the effect. The form is an outer symbol of expressing the idea. Thoughts are acted upon by the law of Mind which responds with mathematical exactness to the idea presented to It.

We must always be sure that our word – our prayer – is in harmony with eternal Reality. When we turn our prayer over to the Law we are setting cause and effect in motion. And if we wish to experience only that which is good, our use of the Law must be good. This is but another way of saying that the Universe is foolproof.

Time, space, and conditions are the effect of mental causes through the action of the Law of Mind. Any sequence of cause and effect is a relative to the mind which conceives the sequence, and it is equally necessary to understand that the mind which conceives any particular sequence may as easily project another and different one.

The Universe is a combination of spontaneous thought and a mathematical reaction to it. In other words there is a divine presence knowing and a universal Law responding.

And So It Is
