It is a matter of fact that for every action, there is a reaction. For every cause, an effect. Falsely thought to be regarded as religious karma, cause and effect has absolutely nothing to do with fantastical, delusional ideas of karma, nor does it operate solely from only 'doing positive', which is not the same as doing good; the latter which requires usage of both positive and negative exertion. He/she who does not take the time to study cause and effect is he/she who is not only ignorant, but selfish, and a detrimental force to others around them. Even these so-called 'lone wolfs' who like to paint themselves as outsiders and distance themselves from taking any responsibility or those who classify their existence as some special snowflake syndrome where they can foolishly dance around and idiotically think their actions have no consequences. Same also applies to the humans who believe they are doing good, expending themselves for Tom, Dick, and Harry, when in reality, their lack of thinking about causality and how their actions, even if they are illogically thought of as 'good', can affect others negatively.
He/she who fails to grasp that there is no thought, action or deed, even if it is purely in self-interest and only for the self, can affect others are human beings who are truly irresponsible and unfit for life itself. They only think about how good they will feel or how amazing it would be to get promoted or to get something or someone, and they even think themselves with their guilt-laden consciousness to be doing some good for others, trying to overextend themselves in so many directions that they end up helping absolutely no one. The fact is that there truly is no human being that is alone. No human being, no animal, no creature, insect, bird, bee, plant, or any life here, there and beyond, is alone. ALL is connected and ALL remains connected for ALL times. The simplest of thoughts gets hurled into the ether and is hurled back to the sender, and what radiates outward can be felt by others, because the Creation-force flows through all matter, living or dead.
Therefore, there are always consequences for one's actions, even if they'd delude or comfort themselves to push aside and sweep this untouchable truth under the carpet. That which is pushed forward must move in a direction, and thus, that which becomes an effect, originated in a cause. Truly, many human beings of earth are catastrophically selfish and in their unawareness, they fail to even realize how. People get so caught in their intentions, about how 'good' of a person they are, and in their mollycoddled natures, they comfort themselves and allow their hedonistic-sunshine-only natures to take precedence over logic, fairness, balance and responsibility. Such humans, even those who do some mild self-reflection, fail to do any deeper research into causality - the fact that their actions affect others whether or not it's for selfish or selfless intentions. No creature, human, animal, plant or the like is exempt from causality, and no so-called 'lone-wolf', can get away from cause and effect either. A lack of understanding causality is a lack of self-responsibility.
This also applies to the ignorant and the ditzy; those who believe they can trot about their paths knocking over things without realizing that they are like the blind - unable to see the destruction around them which they cause. They blind all truth, logic, rationality, intellect, knowledge, wisdom, love and natural order. The truth is simply too penetrating and hard; it hurts these fragile, spineless humans who would much rather be comforted and sedated than to find resolution and true peace. Such human beings fall into their victimhood mentalities and defend their material natures with every inch of their lives, failing to see that the material man is only the carrier; the car, and like a waterfall, what flows from the top (internal) comes to the bottom (external).
Yet it must be said that such human beings, in their fragile selfishness, fail to bring any lasting peace, success, love and harmony to themselves and others because such human beings have no interest in being real human beings. They'd much rather support smokescreens like climate change and veganism when in reality, overpopulation is the true contributing factor to the majority of destruction to mankind along with religion and submissiveness to evil authoritarian power. These human beings are like posers, they only want to get their feet wet but they don't wish to dive into the pool. He/she only wants to feel good or appease their guilty consciousness because they don't have much more to offer than that. He/she is shallow, and by no means wishes to actually bring about change for the better.
However, it must be said that if any change for the better is to take place and true peace, freedom, harmony, love, knowledge, logic, rationality and order is to come about then this requires use of both positive and negative in equal measure. One must not only think about their self-interests (positive), even if those interests are to help others, without thinking about the consequences (negative). Simply by observing nature, the human being will recognize that it is a constant flowing wave, spiraling, mobile and active. Thus the idea that there is no reaction to one's actions is simply a lie. Of course mistakes can be made and it will take the human being time to develop understanding of causality, and how they should go about thinking and doing. Nevertheless, it is a mandatory step for earthlings to take so they become responsible, upright human beings who are capable of sustaining, protecting and cherishing their world.
