Transferring the Burden
"Squaring the Circle"
The more we grow into a clear perception of what is really meant by "Squaring the Circle", the freer we shall find ourselves from the burden of anxiety. We shall rise to a larger generalisation of the Law of Cause and Effect. We shall learn in all things to reach out to First Cause as operating through the channels of secondary causation --- causa causans as producing, and therefore controlling, causa causata --- and so we cease to worry about secondary causes. On the plane of the lower personality we see certain facts and argue that they are bound to produce certain results, which would be quite true if we really saw all the facts; or, again, allowing that in any particular case we actually did see all the facts as they now exist, we can either deny the operation of First Cause or recognise its infinite capacity for creating new facts.
