Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?
Why Does God Allow the Tragedies and Sufferings That Exist in the World?
Many people have asked me what I’ve learned in my investigation of life after death about these common questions. Who among us hasn’t wondered why bad things happen and why God allows them to happen? What fascinates me is that I wrote the answer that I’m about to share with you during a meditative practice over twenty years ago. I wrote it for myself because these questions haunted me. I can’t fully express the level of peace and hope this answer has provided me over the years, which is why I want to share it with you.
At the time, I had not articulated the difference between the spirit and the soul. Now that I have discovered the difference, I realize that what I wrote is about the soul, not the spirit. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve written an article on the difference between soul and spirit, which I’m discovering is the foundation of all my teachings.
Here is the piece I was inspired to write twenty years ago, which has held up with time. Even as I matched this writing to the multitude of evidence and insights I consistently gained over the next two decades, the answer to these critical questions never wavered.
