Dear Brother, I apologize for having misjudged you.
There are at least three common attitudes in the world concerning people who suffer:
1. Why t.h. should I care? Get away from me!
2. If they have chosen to suffer, let them have it. It is their problem. Their time will come. I prefer to look up to the sky and take care of my own
blessing. (A kind of escapism from realities in this world.)
3. They have chosen it through their past actions and it is their karma, and this is the recoil. It is regrettable, but they are having a lesson and I
shouldn’t interfere. (An attitude not rare in Central and East-Asian cultures, where people avoid to “interfere with the karma” of others.)
4. But I want to say: Even if 3. is true, it is our duty to help and do what we can to alleviate suffering. Even if the one who suffers is going
through a lesson, it will be enough with what he/she already had, and to that the person gets another lesson: a lesson of love, experiencing the love
he/she didn’t understand to give to others before (mostly in past lives). The person experiences being cared for and about, and learns to do so
him/her-self for the future. And if we don’t help where we can, we may ourselves instead acquire own negative karma (from the “act of
It appeared to me that your posts were to some degree of the nature 2. above and now I understand that your attitude humbly and quietly is more of the
kind 4., and that you are a great soul who has developed much in this life, which I honestly respect you for. Yet I think that the issue we discuss
here is an important one that has been avoided in the past. Few have dared to take this basic issue of the main religions up for discussion from this
aspect: that religions have degenerated to be tools for power and control and cause more harm and suffering than good - and that what we really need
is a true and honest new religion at the roots of the hearts of people. This religion is LOVE, indiscriminate love, making no difference at all
between people only because of their creed, color, culture, social level or what have you. And that this LOVE is LIVED and not just a theory. This is
what the real Christ taught us through his messenger Yeshua (Jesus), a message that has been twisted and distorted by the Churches and made into
another tool for power, in His place establishing a fake Christ for us.
And that we even love those who do harm to us in the sense of "Father, forgive them, because thy don't know what they are doing!"
It is certainly time that eyes are opened for this issue and that it is openly discussed, and that we cast off the yoke of false gods and teachers,
some of whom even dare to teach love without practicing it… or teach love only for those who live and think as they do, but not for all the others
(or even hatred for the others).
So, my Brother, I conclude with my wishes of LOVE and LIGHT! Don’t be embarrassed for what you have revealed, it honors you! I believe that you live
more love than I so far have been able to...
