In my travels I have often been asked, “Master, why does God make us suffer?” I reply, “God does not make you suffer. You create that situation yourselves.” Whether you know God as the Creator, Mother/Father God, Divine Soul, this energy is with you, all around you, and all embracing. It would never want to hurt you because it loves you unconditionally. It does not care what religious faith you are, what color skin you have, how much spirituality you have. This energy loves you as you are. You can say, “But I am a Christian,” and I will say, “But this energy loves you.” “But Master, I am a Jew,” and I will repeat my previous statement. “But Master I am not spiritual,” “I have been to prison”, “I have been a bad person,” and I will say to all and everything, “But you are loved by God, or whatever name you give this energy. It is you who does not love yourself!”
This energy wishes to help all of you, but until you can learn to love yourself, it cannot, because what this energy builds up inside of you, your low self-esteem and lack of confidence/lack of love for yourself will destroy. You can say, “Master, how can I love myself?” and I will say to you, “By forgiving yourself for anything you have accused yourself of.”
Often you will be asked to help the spiritual realms and will refuse this task. God will still love you, because life is made up of choices and you make the choices.
How many times have you persecuted yourself because of your imperfections? God does not persecute. God accepts you as you are; it makes no demands.
When you can start learning to love yourself, then God, under whatever name you call this energy can do the work of loving you unconditionally. Until you can love yourself, your negative feelings about yourself will block that love. You have never done anything wrong. You have just taken the wrong road, made the wrong choice, or misused energy. Life is a continual learning experience. If you did not make mistakes – as you on earth call it – you would never learn. There are no mistakes, only choices.
Forgive yourselves for anything you have persecuted yourself for and open up to unconditional love!
