“If we start to like(or crave) something in the world, it will attract an event about that.”
Yes. That is the point.
- An Arahant does not crave anything in this world. That is why he will not be reborn in any of the 31 realms.
- If someone has cravings left for sensual pleasures, they will be born in one of the 11 realms in kama loka. An Anagami has removed all kama raga, and thus will not be reborn in kama loka.
- If someone is willing to engage in apayagami actions to enjoy sensual pleasures, then they can be born in an apaya (one of the four lowest realms).
- That is what Paticca Samuppada explains.
