We know that Love does all it can to stop suffering. Your love would, certainly. And so would mine. So then, why doesn’t god stop suffering? The only possible assumption is that if god COULD stop it all, intervene in it all and fix it all, god WOULD, because Love does that sort of thing. But, we know, we see, that our world hasn’t ever been “fixed”. Why? Well, it’s not because God doesn’t want to or that Love doesn’t want to, the logical conclusion, at least, in process understanding, is that god simply CAN’T.
Ugh… how depressing.
There’s something else we know about Love, however. Love is always there, even when it can’t make the pain go away. And so, god is always there – when we feel, when we hurt, when we cry, when we question, when we yearn, and when we heal. One beautiful metaphor to hold all of this is that we are within god, we are within love.
Ultimately, my beliefs about god are not the focus of our spiritual counseling sessions, but I share this to help you understand that I too struggle to make sense of it all. With the support of my own healers and counselors, I have come to my own space of living and breathing these sacred questions. You and I are partners, as we all are, with Love, to serve Love for the sake of our beautiful, wounded world. Your work is breath-taking, a molecule at a time. You and I are the servents of healing Compassion.
