The Law of Cause and Effect

cause and effectThe oldest and most important single law of philosophy is the law of cause and effect. This was first discussed by Socrates and Plato, and then articulated by Aristotle in what he called the “principle of causality.”  At a time when the great majority of people believed in the gods on Mount Olympus and that life was a series of random and unpredictable events, Aristotle claimed that it was otherwise.
Aristotle said that we live in a universe governed by law and order. He said that everything happens for a specific reason, whether or not we know what that reason is.
This law of cause and effect says that, for every effect in your life, there is a specific cause. Nothing happens by accident. Success has a specific causes. Happiness has specific causes. Prosperity and wealth have specific causes. Everything you do, or fail to do, has an effect or a result, positive or negative, somewhere in your life. Your job is to find out the cause-effect relationships and apply them to your advantage.
Do you want to know what that relationship is?
Your thoughts are causes, and conditions are the effects.
Change your thoughts and change your life!!!
In the Old Testament it says, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
