Cause

  • The experience of an event or circumstance seeming to follow from other events or circumstances.
  • Since all of creation is created continuously all at once, no events can be isolated and there are no causal relationships between or among events.
  • The appearance of causal relationships between or among events co-arises with the events and with all of creation.
  • The illusory experience of cause and effect is more direct or less direct depending on the degree of awakeness to THE SUPREME.
  • The illusory experience of cause and effect is more direct or less direct depending on the degree of awakeness to being THE SUPREME.
  • Cause may be used to refer to Divinity/God/Source.
  • Cause is the capacity of Divinity/God/Source to create.
  • Supreme Cause may be used to refer to THE SUPREME.
  • Supreme Cause is the capacity of THE SUPREME to create.
  • Supreme Cause is the capacity of YOU to create.
  • Supreme Cause is prior to creation and life.
  • Supreme Cause causes all of creation to be.
  • Supreme Cause causes all of life to exist.
  • Within the projections of Mind, the Supreme Cause may be veiled or invisible.
  • Within the projections of Mind, the results of Supreme Cause may appear as dependently co-arising phenomena, in which there appear to be cause-and-effect relationships between/among phenomena, or independently co-arising phenomena, in which there appear to be no cause-and-effect relationships between/among phenomena.
  • In Supreme Awakeness it is clear that no thing causes any other thing.

Sayings:

  • “No thing causes anything. Rather, the Supreme Cause creates everything along with the appearance of cause and effect.”
  • “Ultimately, the real cause is YOU.”
