And God Spoke Again

The following is a fictitious conversation, in which I asked God why we have wars, poverty and environmental destruction. The answers may interest you:

God: You asked why I allow wars. I don't. You do. Because of fear, ego and greed, mankind is unable to resolve its differences peacefully and goes to war, with you, my creations, killing each other. This is madness. You were never created to kill each other.

You even used some of the genius in which I endowed you and created nuclear weapons, weapons so powerful they could blow up the earth, the only place you have to live. You've twice used those weapons and nearly used them on several other occasions. Yet instead of destroying those weapons, you build and stockpile them and nuclear weapon possession is spreading far and wide.

The resolution is for you to use the greatest gift I've given you, which is love. Love one-another and destroy all those weapons. Seek peace through peaceful means and talk to each other with kindness and respect.

God: You asked why I allow poverty. I don't. You do. Your intellects are great, as are your resources. The problem is you don't share. There is plenty for everyone but through ego, a small number of you command and hoard those resources, while vast numbers of you do without.

But they can't hoard if the vast number of you refuse to comply. Yet you comply for many of you wish to have such resources yourselves, often fooling yourselves to think you will. And the very poor among you struggle just to survive.

God: You asked why I allow environmental destruction. I don't. You do. Through greed you destroy in decades what took billions of years to create. And rather than acknowledge the obvious, some of you even pretend the destruction is not happening.

The resolution? Don't use or reduce your usage of products that destroy your environment and those giant corporate entities will change their destructive ways for they are driven by greed for money and power, and your actions will compel them to do the right thing for the planet.

God: I gave you each other to love and nurture and to evolve into wiser, more compassionate beings. Take heart, for despite your practices you won't destroy yourselves or the planet, for you will evolve into more enlightened beings. It will just take some of you many lives on this plane of existence to reach that level of evolution.

In the meantime, as you are reborn, I will keep reversing your roles so that the rich become poor and the poor become rich, so that you can each see what it is like to be in each other's shoes.

Those who are enemies will be reborn as well in reverse roles, once again to see what it is like to be in each other's shoes.

You could say I do this because I have a sense of humor, which is true. But I do this because through free will you will each learn and grow and you will stand the consequences of your actions. I created you, I love you and I will patiently inspire you to become far better than you are.
