If anything is acting on a partilce, it will keep moving along a straight line, with constant velocity (in all the inertial reference frames). In this sense, nothing causes the motion.

A change in this kind of motion, that is, an acceleration or a curve in the trajectory, is caused by a force, according to the Newton equation F = dp/dt. "Nowadays" we prefer to avoid the concept of force F, using instead the idea of field, which is independet from the particle and from its parameters (mass, charge, ... ): you can say that the field permeate the space, whether the particle is there or not.

Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist a change in its motion.

Force causes acceleration. Acceleration is a change of speed or direction of motion.No force is necessary to maintain constant speed in a straight line. So you'd haveto say that force causes changes in motion.

Simple answer; energy. It takes energy to cause anything, including your breathing right now. Energy is used to put something in motion, which ALWAYS causes something else to be in motion, even if it is the air around the item being put in motion.

The description of motion is kinematics; the study of the causes of motion (interaction between forces and motion) is called dynamics.
