Is intention truly cause ?
First some background;
When my only son was just an infant, his mother and I went through an ugly divorce. We had just moved to Canada from Holland and while I liked Canada and looked forward to starting a new life, she hated it and wanted to go back to Holland. This created unresolvable stress, which resulted in the divorce.
She promised that unless we moved back to Holland, she would not allow any contact between my son and me. And true to her word, she stopped virtually all contact for the next 17 years. Whenever I discovered where they lived, she would move again, eventually moving back to Holland.
To show how determined she was, my daughter told me later that they moved 23 times before she finished High School. And yet, I had never shown any hostility towards her or the kids.
When my son turned 18, because he was born in Canada. the Canadian Government, in their infinite wisdom, harassed me for back child support and presented me with a whopping bill,
When I questioned them, they explained that under the Canadian law, I was obligated to financially support him till the age of 35, as long as he was going to school. And since I had no contact with my son, I could not verify whether he actually was going to school or whether he was just "lazing around", as was reported to me by my daughter.
Those ever helpful [/sarcasm] Government Officials explained that the only way to cancel the debt and future obligations was if he died, But in that case, they needed to see an official death certificate. And being an 18 year old, what were the chances of that happening ?
To show my frame of mind at the time (26 years ago), as far as I was concerned I had written him off. since we had virtually no contact. The few times we met during his teenage years, I found him quite ignorant and full of hatred towards me.
Because of that, I wished to cut him out of my life completely and strongly thought of the benefits of no longer having him in my life. The situation did not enhance either of our lives.
Of course I was not actually going to kill him, especially since he now lived thousands of miles from where I live and I didn't have a clue of his whereabouts, other than he was in Holland.
But at the time and under the circumstances. I had strong feelings about this.
To my amazement, very shortly thereafter I received the message that he had unexpectedly passed away at the age of 18, apparently he had a seizure in the bath tub and drowned. This happened on the other side of the world !
And I was actually mailed the official death certificate. The bottom line was, the Canadian Government canceled any debt related to my son, which was the only thing I strongly intended.
Or did my powerful intention cause this ?
As they say, be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.
The Universe does not recognize "right" or "wrong", this is a human idea, probably invented by the churches.
