And how horrible would any of this be if it were only a dream? You see someone come and destroy your home and burn your crops and kill your cattle.
Let's throw in the rape and murder of you mother, wife, sister, daughter. They butcher your father, brother and son. How awful.
And then you wake up. It was a dream. Your loved ones are there unharmed. The destroyed home and crops and cattle are revealed not to have existed to
Still, even in a collective, shared dream your loved ones would still possess the memories of being abused. An extremely vivid dream of being raped
might be almost as bad as a genuine rape. While the physical reality of it may be an illusion, the emotional, psychological trauma would still be a
horrible experience. How do you think the offender should be punished?
A loving father when he sees a child do something wrong has a choice to punish, to achieve some type of warped revenge, or to teach the child that
what was done was wrong. To make them grasp not only that it was wrong but why it was wrong. To make them actually understand the pain they have
inflicted on others.
Is not the most common view taken about wrong-doers 'how would they like it if that happened to them?'
You could get revenge on them, true.
Or you could send them back as a little girl to be raped and murdered so they might truly understand why it is wrong.
If it is understood that Joe Blow will rape and murder a little girl then would it not make sense to have him do so to someone who has volunteered to
return to learn the suffering he caused another by that very act?
If we consider that the person who has returned to experience this horror they have committed on others chose to do so on his own, has, between
incarnations understood how wrong his actions were but now wishes to do more than grasp it intellectually but rather to know the horror of it from
experience and while doing so thinks 'if a child must suffer this pain and horror then is it not better that I experience it rather than an honestly
innocent child? Such thinking would remove God from any role of judge or punisher. It would be the result of each soul determining it's own
I do not say this is the case. I might be a million miles off the mark. But I want to point out if this or something similar could be the answer.
Maybe not, but if there is a chain of logic not considered, then what other chains of logic are being missed? Who are you or I to say that because we
cannot see a perfect sense of justice in the overall picture then it must follow such a chain of logic can not exist? Rein in that ego. I
cannot see the sense of it. It follows then that there is no sense to it. It cannot be that perhaps I am not intelligent enough to grasp
something which might be right in front of me. You seem to have replaced the idea of a perfect all-knowing God with a perfect all-knowing you. Get
over yourself. I suggest though that if you wish to ponder these things you move beyond the childish, simplistic, blame God for everything attitude.
Allow the possibility of your own limitations. You cannot make sense of it. And? So? Are you so intelligent the world, the universe and even God
himself must limit themselves to what you can understand? Third grade sunday school logic.
