God teaches us everything without even us noticing his intervention. He is so gentle that he stops immediately when
are not capable of accepting his teaching. He restarts when we are ready again. God is the most skillful and generous teacher.

The problem of evil is the famous question of how to reconcile the existence of evil and suffering with an omnipotent, omnibenevolent, and omniscient God (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Problem_of_evil).

I found the following explanation to the problem of evil:
God saves one soul at a time.
The one who loves and surrenders to God, is saved by God.
Surrendering to God involves accepting to change for God (unconditionally loving God with no shape, all around and inside us).

Thank you Red and Green; Christmas colors. I take no credit for most of what I share here in this forum, as instead of my sharing coming from me it often comes through me, when I move out of the way, from somewhere else. I really don’t know anything worth knowing as I view myself as an empty shell, and when I am actually very quiet and still inside wisdom presents itself from a greater repository.

There is this saying that “still waters run deep.” It is a saying that small river boat operators used to say. They would throw a pebble in the water as they went up or down river, if the pebble made lots of ripples then the water was considered shallow. But if there were no ripples and the water remained still then it was considered deep.

I relate this to the human mind and all of its ripples, because beyond the mind and emotions there is an absolute stillness without ripples. In this world human beings tend to make lots of ripples, but that which I refer to as “God” is extremely patient, awaiting us to enter those still waters and return to the unmatched presence of God. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, like that presence.

Hey Red, Shakespeare had a similar phrase, he said “smooth runs the water where the brook is deep.”

An empty vessel makes the loudest noise.

Wow that’s a helluva lot of people. Didn’t realise there was so many.

I wonder why they don’t leave any comments cos it would be good to have a few more different voices added to the thread.

COME ON YOU GUYS OUT THERE, SHARE SOME OF YOUR THOUGHTS!
