The scandal about the company that enables cheating behavior to advance to universities of repute has pushed me to ask Spirit about cheating. I was curious if there are consequences to cheating, and I was fascinated to learn that there are generalizations about people who cheat. Here are five generalizations about the effects of cheating on people. For people who live in repressive societies, cheating is often necessary in order to live an authentic life, so those societies are not considered in this post.
Generalization #1: Cheating causes emotional illness.
People who cheat create openings for emotional instability to fester and have greater doubts about themselves. Cheating is a gnawing experience that cannot be rationalized.
Generalization #2: Cheating is justified by those who cheat, but it is never justified in the spiritual realm.
People who cheat will seek justifications for their actions, but their spiritual selves know the truth. Cheating distances from spiritual connection, and it damages spiritual fulfillment.
Generalization #3: Cheating can be alienating.
People who cheat have different relationships than people who don’t. In general, people who cheat are more suspicious of others.
Generalization #4: Cheating can be physically challenging.
People who cheat often feel pains that have inexplicable causes. The pains come from guilt.
Generalization #5: Cheating has tentacles into generations.
People who cheat have personality changes that affect how they interact with their children. The children aren’t destined to be cheaters, but the altered behavior of the parents affects them negatively.
Can cheating behavior in the past be pardoned?
The effects of cheating can be lessened by committing to a life of helpful existence: helping others, helping the environment, and helping the community. Through helpful existence, past cheating behavior will have less harmful effects on the people and their children.
