6 - The Principle of Causation

Every Cause Has Its Effect. Every Effect Has Its Cause. Everything Happens According To Law. Chance Is But A Name For Law Not Recognized. There Are Many Planes Of Causation, But Nothing Escapes The Law. Nothing ever merely happens. Everything happens for a reason. There is no such thing as chance.

From the Hermetic focus, to say each effect has many causes is most accurate. This multidimensional reality is epitomized by the word "synchronicity". This describes circumstances that, appearing to occur by chance on the surface, are actually the inner workings of one or more of the Universal Laws. What we attribute by "chance" is usually an event whose governing law is not outwardly evident because all events are at some level the workings of Universal Law. Ralph Waldo Emerson called the principle of causation "The Law of Laws".​

Nothing occurs without a cause. All action is the rhythmic reaction to another vibration, and so on. The masters would mentally rise to higher planes of existence and therefore they became causers, instead of being a blind instrument of causation. The masters did not escape the causation of the higher planes, but they did align themselves with the higher laws and served by becoming a conscious aspect of these laws. In turn, they mastered their circumstances and ruled on lower planes of existence. This principle manifests on each plane, giving our reality purpose and meaning.

"Nothing escapes the Principle of Cause and Effect, but there are many Planes of Causation,

and one may use the Laws of the higher to overcome the laws of the lower."

The Kybalion

Teachings Reflecting The Principle of Causation:


Personal Development of The Art of Causation: To evoke the benevolent use of the principle of causation in your life, begin by planting seeds for yourself. Based on your experience up to now, you have a general idea of what you like, and of what you do not like. Consciously plant and cultivate the seeds that you do enjoy and​ become the catalyst for the transformation of your entire reality. When you can embrace the effects of your intentions and actions to keep energy in flow and working for you, you will shift to a reality where you are in the alignment of saying and meaning 'yes' to everything the Universe serves you with.
