Sometimes when people read my old blogs, I review them and add to what was written. This is a blog written in May of 2013.
Consider the books in God’s library. In each book, the first and last pages are very similar. Each book represents who we are or our soul. Each separate page represents part of our lives.
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 a page in a book, we need to look at what has occurred before to understand what is happening now. This is the law of “Cause and Effect”. Good thoughts create happiness, and evil thoughts and actions create suffering in the future. But sometimes like in a book, the effect does not occur in the same chapter. This is why we cannot sometimes understand the sufferings.
The first page in all of the books is similar because we all start with a pure heart, void of evil (greed, arrogance, and self love). The last page of each book is the same for everyone; it reflects God’s hope of all mankind living the joyous life, ending with the pure heart. Some people will have a thin book, because they will understand causality and God’s truths sooner, while others unfortunately will suffer and have a thick book.
Some may say that this is a ridiculous analogy or comparison, but it is something to ponder. Why does mankind suffer? Causality?
