As a young student of Science of Being my spiritual teacher and I were walking and having a conversation, when I stubbed my toe and stumbled with arms awkwardly flying. It really hurt physically, but the worst part was the embarrassment.
I asked my teacher about the entire scenario and the obvious answer was, it was the consequences of the Law of Cause and Effect, karma. I was unconscious of taking care, unconscious of being loving and walking gently on Mother Earth. I was not consciousness and aware of Love.
The corners of Mind and Love we not in equalibrium. And pain is the teacher ….. physical and mental! The emotional attitude of pride was the root of embarrassment, and useless for my happiness and development and everyone else’s.
It was a good lesson! And I appreciate it. The Law of Cause and Effect is of great benefit to us because within so called negative karma is also potential for inspiration to start positive causes.
We are gifted with free will to shape our destiny and are not fixed in negative karma ….. if we do not allow ourselves to stay down mentally and circle in regret and self-punishment. Such attitudes keep us circling in karma, creating more, attracting more low levels of thinking, moods, and behaviors.
We can view mistakes from a conscious perspective of consideration. Mistakes can inspire us to be more aware, conscious that we are out of alignment with harmony …… not FourSquare. They point us to make decisions, intents with caring and compassion for ourselves and others.

“In order to use that law (Law of Cause and Effect) successfully in our lives, we must learn to handle it properly. The first and most important thing to do is TO LIVE IN THE EVER PRESENT NOW.
