The principle of cause and effect is the truth that allows us to better ourselves and the world around us.
All motive and action affects the cosmos in some way. The principle of cause and effect is the truth that allows us to change ourselves and the world around us for the better. However, this same universal law is also at work when change is not at the forefront of our minds. Our intentions flow forever outward in the form of energy, affecting both the people closest to us and billions of individuals we will likely never meet. For that reason, we should strive always to speak, think, and behave with great thoughtfulness and compassion. The virtues we choose to embody can inspire joy and integrity in the lives of countless people, whether we touch their existence directly or not.
One of my all-time favorite books is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by a brilliant author, Douglas Adams, who unfortunately passed into the outer regions in 2001 at age 49.
This post is my homage to Douglas Adams who visited Denver's Tattered Cover Bookstore in the very late 1990s to perform a reading of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. He was so kind as to autograph my leather-bound copy of that book which I cherish to this day.
So, why the blog title Life, The Universe, and Almost Everything? Because everything is too big for us to know about it all!
What we will share in these posts are things we do know...
