Learning that perception only shows you what you want to see, that your intention for something determines the outcome of your experience of it, demonstrates that cause and effect are always together, cannot be separated. While this teaches us that we can choose to have a more peaceful and happy life, the greater learning is that we have never separated from our Cause. We are the Effect of God and a part of all He has created. There is no reality – no life – apart from His. This knowing of our oneness will, when fully grasped, bring all illusions to an end.
