If you wish to know the causes you have accumulated in your past existences, look at the effects that are manifested in the present. And if you wish to know the effects that will be manifested in the future, look at the causes you are accumulating in the present…
written by Nichiren Daishonin, 13th century Japan
Our current circumstances represent the effects of our deeds in the past. Furthermore, our current deeds will determine the effects in the future. We are unable to return to the past or undo and erase our past mistakes. However, we are able to change our future through our current and future actions.
