Oorzaak en gevolg

When the eagle soars up, high above the ground,
For a while its shadow is nowhere to be seen;
Yet bird and shadow still are linked. So it is with our actions:
When the right conditions come together, their effects will manifest.

-Jikmé Lingpa, Treasury of Precious Qualities, III, 3
