Perhaps it's best to make another thread but I also wonder what this God of unconditional love is up to that it can't be bothered to set right things in this world.
This is simply my idea about things, I don't mind if you like it or not, I do find it strange when people get angry about my idea, as some have done.
It sits well with me that whatever is running this thing, set it up for us (it?)to live in without any interference from 'it'. If we are to become love through this long journey, (many lives?)it feels intuitively right that 'God' or whatever your preferred name might be, leaves us to find out for ourselves what the most efficient path is. We might know the theory, but we must walk the walk to set it in stone.
Maybe we will self destruct many times, and while doing so some percentage of us see the end coming and try to avert it. If this 'reality' is all mental as idealists theorise, anything is possible! Atlantis may have been an example of this? Maybe the earth has formed (evolved) the same way as we have but doesn't disappear like we do when we drown, blow ourselves up, poison ourselves, or whatever is our fate this time.
Each time, however, we learn something more, some of us grow a little bit. How this actually works I don't (and possibly can't) know (in this form?) and don't really care, but I see it as a real possibility if we're 'consciousness'.
I really get 'the power of Love' deep down. It has much more 'power' than all the other ideas I hear about what the ultimate reason for living may be, the many podcasts that Alex has about things.
It is somehow not possible to force this knowledge upon us, we have to learn it for ourselves.
Of course, it is possible, but then the wisdom gained is not of the same 'quality' as that learned 'the hard way'. And it is hard. Really hard. As we so often hear about 'coming to earth'. I don't think 'quality' is the right word, or doesn't get across the depth of what I really mean, but it's the best we have at present.
