Why does God let bad things happen?
How many times have we heard, even uttered this question?
There are so many teachings about God not being somewhere remote and far away but right in our hearts. There are teachings that each person we meet is God.
If we acknowledge that there is Divine Love in our hearts, then the question is not why does God let things happen, the question is why do WE let things happen.
I think this is relevant if you believe in a big guy sitting on a throne in the sky, three billion Gods and Goddesses each with many limbs influencing daily life, no God at all, or whatever.
Gun violence. Any violence. Unsafe food. Warzones. Environmental collapse. Weak education systems. You know the rest of the list….
Why do WE let it happen?
Then, most importantly:
What can WE do together to keep it from happening again?
