Why Does God Allow Suffering?
written by Kevin Dellinger
The content within this question will be answered. The answer
may not reflect your beliefs. However, this is an objective answer
to help us understand more clearly why suffering exists.
First of all, we must get rid of the idea that we are separate
from God. We need to get rid of the Ego perspective of suffering.
Why? Because everyone suffers. Even animals. Even all life.
Suffering is everywhere in physical manifestation. It is easy to
point the finger to God. Blame is not really an answer. Blame is
only an emotional reaction to pain, loss, and long term
We must look at life as a temporary state of being. Eternity
does not last on Earth. Eternal life is an ongoing process between
spiritual dimensions and many life times. It is difficult for many
to see beyond the point of where they are now. But the truth is
that we are beyond this physical life. We are an extension of God.
We are living a physical journey.
Duality is part of a lower vibration. It is a natural part of
the slowed down molecules of physical reality. The ability to live
in a physical form requires movement, interaction, and discovery.
Over a period of linear time, molecules break down. Breaking down
life is part of the process to allow new growth. With death comes
rebirth. We see this in Nature. I think part of the view point is
that Humans think they are more important than everything else. The
Ego hates God. But really you are only hating yourself.
Free will allows your spiritual self to live in a physical self.
When you make your own choices, consequences occur which brings
many fast experiences. These experiences give us a playing field to
determine our reactions. Our reactions bring about two universal
reactions in physical form. Fear and Love. To evolve spiritually
from a physical experience, we must pass a certain gateway to the
next level. Humility. It is very difficult for a Human to let go of
physical temptations, material possessions, attachments to people,
life, and pride. Pride is the biggest reason people hate God.
Along with suffering comes healing. This is where the lesson of
Love comes in. Without Shadow there is no Light. Duality is a tool
to help you spiritually evolve. It is up to you how you react to
suffering that determines whether you choose Humility or Pride. If
you are a wise Soul, you have a deeper understanding that we are
all a part of God. It is up to us to develop healing processes,
cures, empathy, Love. Without suffering, there is no room to
If we lived in a constant state of Bliss, we would not know the
difference between Love and the absence of Love. It is the first
lesson to learn in the spiritual evolution process. It is up to you
to decide where you go from here after your Earthbound
So the real question is: Why do YOU allow suffering? This can go
into a much deeper concept. But the answer is simple - you are God
living in a lower physical vibration. How are you going to work
yourself out of it? Do you live in fear, hate and confusion. Or
will you dance with Humility which is the gateway to Love. Love is
what we truly are. Live in Love. Understand that suffering is part
of a growth process. It is only temporary. Life is temporary. Yet
you are eternal.
