Everything in the physical universe has its beginning in an idea. Beyond that, thought, action and work make all nondual teachers. Like cause and effect, what needs to be done gets done by anyone productive or anything productive. Think about it. From the natural energy of weather to human or conscious made technology, there are not any miracles except for things done through cause and effect. Nothing is really magical in the sense of unrealistic “coming out of nothingness really”. Listen, no matter what seems miraculous at one level, it becomes mere cause and effect at another level. Sure, the article could end there, but I must put the point that there are not any “miracles” except those we make or some cause within nature may make.
Sure, we can argue the point about how things happen for hours, days, hours and whatever. But cause and effect is within everything and radiates from that.
Production and creative action is the only power there really is at any level, from amoeba to God. Think about this and you will know exactly what I mean by the title of this article. Without question, there are amazing things that happen at all levels, but it is important to know that consciousness is the motivating power from amoeba to God to all of existence. Knowing this fact and expanding on this fact forever is the key to expansion at any level. For a lack of consciousness causes death and contraction any way you do look at it or think about it.
Realistically, there is “nothing new under the sun” except that it is new to lower levels of being than the one producing the phenomena. To higher levels of being, what is new to those lower levels is common and working knowledge. Life goes on at any level though.
To end with a paraphrased and interpreted quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Deal with only cause and effect, the chancellors of fate and reality. For cause and effect are the best working tools of consciousness and power. If they were not, nothing would be possible to anyone or anything.“
In my memory, all miracles have a cause no matter how miraculous it seems than at the lower level than that miracle. For when the cause is understood, the effect is fully repeatable. This reality cannot be circumvented or changed. Where we go from here, can only be determined by consciousness.
