Hang on now, before you throw me under the bus, let me explain myself. I believe it only appears that bad stuff happens when you are so close to the occurrence that you're actually seeing it out of context. I'm not saying that horrible, hideous and disgusting things don't happen because they do. Nor am I saying that there's no such thing as pain, suffering, or people doing evil things.
What I am saying is there is far more to every occurrence than we can grasp with our physical senses alone. I'm saying that if you stand far enough back from any situation, no matter what has happened, you will always discover purpose, meaning, healing and love. Of course this concept raises huge questions. Does it make sense that bad things would be happening in the midst of the magnificence of creation, God's paradise, if you will? This playground of Divine intelligence? For me it doesn't. It doesn't make sense that there could be so much love and caring, even to a degree that the human mind cannot begin to fathom - while simultaneously there would be vile, hideous, disgusting things.
Thinking otherwise would assume the Universe has made some kind of mistake, either in creating the Cosmos or in deciding to create humans, who, unforeseeably, turned out to be a runaway train of badness. Perhaps this apparent contradiction of bad stuff happening in an otherwise perfect world should tip you off that there is a bigger, deeper, greater answer. Again that is: When you are far enough away from an experience to see it in a larger context - bad things do not appear to be happening in time and space.
As always take what resonates and leave the rest. Leave a comment below, I'd love to hear from you!
