“What we sow, we shall reap.”
This is an inviolable Universal Law. Events in a person’s life are the result of their previous actions. In other words, their actions, thoughts and words are causes which have effects, in the form of events. We use the Law of Cause and Effect by creating a desire, following it through with thought, word, and deed, and then experiencing the consequence. For example, like a man may act lovingly towards his family, this is his duty, consequently he will reap love from his relatives.
If you want love, give unconditional love. If a man performs bad actions- then he will reap terrible results, such as illness, calamities, hardships, or any kind of suffering inflicted upon him. The greater the sacrifice and goodness of the action, the greater will be the fruit he will receive. Similarly, a bad or mean action, which inflicts pain and suffering to other beings, will bring equivalent results to the doer. Remember that for every word, thought or deed, there will be a reaction, equal in nature and degree. No one escapes from the Law of Cause and Effect. The effects of a thought, word or deed, sometimes are immediate but in some cases many days, months, years or lifes must elapse till the precise moment determined by the Almighty comes about
