Why is there Suffering?

Why is there Suffering?

Suffering brings wisdom and leads us toward higher reality.

The ultimate cure for suffering is God.

If you look at suffering abstractly, you can say there is no suffering. The only reality is God, and God is joy, not suffering. When joy diminishes, it can appear that you are suffering.

Evil is that which pulls us away from our central joy.

God created everything from thought. The underlying reality of energy is thought, and the underlying reality of thought is divine consciousness or God.

Good and evil are dreams of the Infinite.

To love people is to love them with their motives. To love God is to love without motive. To love God within people is to love without motive. And when we have no motive at all, the ego is out of the picture.
