Why the suffering? I do not know why people suffer. Yes it can build resilience but some suffering, for example that inflicted by natural disasters, can seem particularly harsh, even cruel.
Are such examples of suffering tests of our love? Perhaps. But if they are a test then they are a test of our collective humanity just as much as a test of the people most impacted by the suffering.
I do believe that with time, and with love our ability to limit such extreme and widespread suffering in the World increases: the diplomats will increasingly replace the weapons of war, our medical research will grow ever more sophisticated, and our scientists will be better able to predict natural disasters. These are but three examples of the efforts to eliminate some of the suffering in the World. There are many more. They are all love.
Will we succeed in eliminating all suffering? No. Pain and suffering are the catalysts that progress our love in the Universe and so long as our love can grow, pain and suffering will be a part of our existence.
Can our love progress further to be something greater than sacred love? I believe that with sacred love we can reach distant stars. As stated in an earlier post, the next leap, which may be first contact and then travelling to a World with intelligent life may require a further progression of our love. A further understanding of the complexities of love that will allow us to share this Universe with other loving beings who orbit distant stars.
Unlike the destructive colonization efforts of our earthly past that were guided by might and conquest these new efforts will be guided by love. We will learn to love the native inhabitants of distant planets as we love ourselves and I believe our love will not be the only example of higher love in the Universe. Love as the fundamental truth will be embraced by all others and will be a cause for cooperation amongst civilizations in the eons to come.
What is our ultimate destiny? I believe it is to play a role in Their Divine Plan. What that Plan is I do not know although I do believe it involves love on a Universal scale. In the interim I believe The Greatest Love has shown me only where sacred love can lead us to, namely the second vision. Once that is achieved I believe They will reveal more.
In the meantime find and nurture love in your journey through life instead of waiting for an ultimate destination.
