For every effect there lies a cause… Song 261

I finally get to the top of the tower. From this vantage point, I can see as far as my eyes dare to look. At sunrise, I see the waves rush to shore. I see the sand glimmer and dance with the tide. Every action results in an effect. Every road I took has led me here. To this tower. I think I should stay here and be safe. Every choice leads me somewhere new, and there is no way to take it back. If I stay here, my choices are limited, but so are the effects. Fear of karma paralyzes me and protects me. I can see it all so clearly. I know I will have to leave if I ever want to complete my journey. For now, I will keep the protection of the tower.

Song 261: “Karmic Effect”

There’s a cause tied to every effect
You only need to find the reason
It all becomes clear in the morning light
If you only look

There is justice in this universe
If you care to see the path you took to get here

A karmic force presses through the haze
Leading me to a higher answer
It all becomes clear, plain as day to me
As I only look

There is justice in this universe
If you care to see the path you took to get here

For every effect there lies a cause
All I’ve become gives me pause
It all becomes clear as I look out from this tower
I can see

For every effect there lies a cause
For every effect there lies a cause
