“Cause and effect” is a phrase that we hear often, and I would say most people believe they understand its meaning. Right? Pretty simple. Newtown tells us “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” That’s sorta like cause and effect. But what if we were to look at cause and effect a bit differently and actually apply it to our life. That’s what we’ve done this week in MKMMA. Sitting and reflecting gives us an opportunity to look at our surroundings, circumstances and events in our life. When I apply this week’s lesson to my observations, I get to take responsibility for all aspects of my life. “Effects” would be the results in my life for which I stand responsible. I now understand that these “effects” all started in the same fashion – as a thought in my mind. Thoughts, do in fact, become things. Consistent thoughts even create their own pathway in our brains. Thoughts that fire together wire together. When we have the same thoughts over and over, we are actually wiring our brains in set patterns. These consistent thoughts end up transferring into our subconscious. Interestingly, our subconscious doesn’t know the difference between a truth or a falsehood. Whatever is fed to it on a consistent basis becomes its truth. Once it latches onto a “truth”, the Universe will move mountains and pull all types of forces into play to have that truth manifest into our reality. Our thoughts really are the cause and our reality is the effect. This is so very powerful for all of us to understand. In a nutshell, it tells us that we truly create our own reality.
