In continuing the series of disclosing my beliefs, we come to the subject of illness and disease. Much has been written in metaphysical circles on this and other details of the human condition. I remind the reader that the cycle of humanity is a long game, encompassing many lifetimes on this earth. Afflictions in one lifetime can spill over into the next.
My beliefs hold that we are eternal souls having a human experience that we had a hand in choosing. Now we tackle the seeming conundrum of suffering. If we look at our existence as finite and short, as many do, having a difficult life would be meaningless.
I believe we are eternal living souls. We all are aspects of God, the Source of All Things. As these different facets of the Sacred Whole, we live lives of various perspectives on this planet called Earth.
Humanity has been trained in our modern times. We have to watch out for the other guy so we won't get a bad review on our business or product. We don't want to hurt someone unintentionally, or (heaven forbid) we get sued and taken to court. We have made it easy to be blamed for things that may or may not be within our control.
