Consider the books in God’s library. Some books are very thin, and others are extraordinary large. In each book, the first and last pages are very similar. Each book represents who we are. Each separate page represents part of our lives. For those who do not believe in reincarnation or past lives please bear with me.
Sometimes in life, we cannot understand what is happening to us. Why does God inflict pain on us? I am a good person, why do bad things happen to me? Even Job in the Bible asked God this question.
Like in a book, if we were to look at one page, one would not be able to understand the content if one did not read the previous pages. If we believed in the law of cause and effect, we would be able to trace our sufferings to an action or actions in a previous life (page or pages). The law of cause and effect states that evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) thoughts and actions result in future sufferings. The time lapse may extend into the next life, making it difficult to see the relationship of our thoughts and our future.
Some people are able to understand God’s truth, and are able to have good thoughts. Their books are very thin, due to having less suffering in their lives. Others have large chapters representing their lives due to prolong sufferings caused by their bad thoughts and actions.
In all the books, the first page is the same beginning with the origin of purity of mind. The last page is also the same in each book. Each book ends with the salvation of the individual, with the restoration of the purity of the mind. When all books are completed, God’s plan of the joyous world will be finalized with everyone helping each other.
To take it to another level, consider each book representing the soul. More to come……..
