Question of the Day


Does God take care of "fairness"?

Many people are not conscious of having hurt others and never ask for forgiveness. Others think about everything they do and have feelings of guilt. Does God take care of "fairness" in life or is it our own responsibility?

Answer


Life is already supremely fair, although this cannot be seen with our physical senses. We must intuitively understand this. We reap what we sow, and what goes around comes around. Everything comes back to us. No one, ever, gets away with anything, no matter how things appear. And with such an exquisite balance already built into nature, God loves all equally. The question of responsibility is tricky with such limited time and space (an entire book might not be enough), yet we can sense the truth, and it is this: we are all, entirely responsible,...

Question of the Day


Does God take care of "fairness"?

Many people are not conscious of having hurt others and never ask for forgiveness. Others think about everything they do and have feelings of guilt. Does God take care of "fairness" in life or is it our own responsibility?

Answer


Life is already supremely fair, although this cannot be seen with our physical senses. We must intuitively understand this. We reap what we sow, and what goes around comes around. Everything comes back to us. No one, ever, gets away with anything, no matter how things appear. And with such an exquisite balance already built into nature, God loves all equally. The question of responsibility is tricky with such limited time and space (an entire book might not be enough), yet we can sense the truth, and it is this: we are all, entirely responsible, for everything that happens to us. This of course raises the question of blame: When we are violated, are we to blame? The word “blame” takes things out of context. No, we are not to “blame.” We are in the “school of time and space” to learn that we are creators. As we learn, it’s reasonable to say we will often create (or choose to be alive at times when circumstances appear larger than ourselves) situations in which we are at the mercy of others. This may be done intentionally, for loving reasons we are unaware of, or you could say unintentionally, yet throughout, we are never anywhere, nor do we ever experience anything, that we did not somehow ordain, permit, and co-create, through our thoughts, beliefs, and expectations.

I am in no way justifying or condoning the poor behavior of those who violate others, and I understand that my answer may raise questions, yet for the complex and baffling situations in which we were violated, my advice is to recognize that for reasons not now apparent, we did indeed choose to be present, with a role in its creation. It is not as important to understand the reasons now (they will become clear eventually), as it is to acknowledge this basic premise, and by doing so we put ourselves back on the throne of our creativity, and can move forward in our lives more powerfully and deliberately. To believe we are, or can become, victims, robs us of our power, and places us at the mercy of circumstances and other people. Similarly, “blaming” others robs us of our power, and even though we can acknowledge that they made poor or even cruel choices for which they are responsible for, the only way to move forward freely in our own lives is to realize that we were, and therefore still are, full-time creators.
