“Life is a perpetual instruction in cause and effect” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality.” – Rand
Aristotle and the ancients knew well the law of “cause and effect”, “we reap what we sow”, it is inescapable. It’s as applicable in nature as it is in our own lives.
Apple Seed -> Apple Tree Healthy Root System -> Healthy Tree
Apple Seed ≠ Peach Tree Unhealthy Root System ≠ Healthy Tree
Apple seeds will never produce peach trees just as an unhealthy or diseased root system will never produce the effect of a healthy tree. Cause effect, action reaction. The premise is simple.
Unhappy, dissatisfied, unfulfilled, anxiety ridden, unhealthy relationships, despair? Unproductive practices will never produce a productive life. Unhealthy can never produce healthy. Negative can never produce positive. Dysfunctional can never produce functional. Bitter can never produce content. Chaos can never produce peace.
The Root = The Crop

“If you want to understand the causes that existed in the past, look at the results as they are manifested in the present. And if you want to understand what results will be manifested in the future, look at the causes that exist today…. in the present.”
