Quote Of The Week – 32 – 2016

What Is The Law Of Cause And Effect?

“What we do now echoes in eternity.”

– Marcus Aurelius

What It Means For Me

For me this is a very powerful quote and the fact that it is almost 1900 years old makes it even more fascinating. The Roman Emperor, who was also called a philosopher king, created a self-fulfilling statement, that keeps echoing through the centuries.

This proves the cosmic principle of cause and effect in a prominent way.

Cosmic principle

Every action causes a reaction. Whatever you think, say or do sets the cause for a respective response. This is what can be called karma.

Karma is often translated as destiny. However,  we don’t live in a deterministic world, where everything is predetermined. Instead we are constantly acting in a “certain” way, that has to result in a “certain” response. Therefore, changing your actions can change your karma, destiny or whatever you want to call it.

If you haven’t done so yet, make sure that you understand the cosmic principles.

Nothing is ever lost

Everything you have ever thought, said, and done is stored as information in the Akashik fields. You can see it as “congealed consciousness” that will be never lost and always be a part of this universe.

Your current life starts where your old one ended and your actions in this life will affect your next one.  And your actions will not only affect your life but the universe in general. Everything is connected, therefore each one of us has an important role to play.

Set the right causes

You can transform this principle and make it no longer governing your life because you always have a choice to change your life right here and now.

You are responsible for your life! It is always you setting the cause for what is happening to you.

Be the change you want to see in the world. This is actually a quote from another famous man. If you know who said it, please leave a comment and let us know.

Whatever you do this week, try to consciously add value in everything you do. Very soon you will see the results coming back to you one way or another.

However you decide, chose wisely and move ahead with confidence. Now is the time to start your holistic life transformation!

Who Said It


Marcus Aurelius (121 to 180 AD) was a Roman Emperor. Despite him being seen as being one of the Five Good Emperors he was also active in philosophy.

Interesting about his childhood is that he, like many other famous people avoided public schools and was very grateful for it. Later as an emperor, he acquired the reputation of being a philosopher king.

Side note: The movie Gladiator kind of starts at the moment of his death, where he is killed by his son Commodus.
