Someone asked a question – rather made a statement
But first a few words
Omnipotent – all powerful everywhere
Omniscient- knowing all
So the sentence is
If God is omniscient and Omnipotent then he is not benevolent
And if he is benevolent then he is not Omniscient and omnipotent
It should be obvious why this sentence was there
It is like making a statement, if there is a God why is there so much misery
Now this is a valid statement.
How do you resolve this?
First, just forget God. That is not your goal
What you want is peace and happiness. This question people pose – when you try to answer you will ponder and argue and debate. First stop that line of reasoning or thinking
Second, if you truly want an answer go and ask God. Why take an answer from intellectual debates
Third this question can only be asked if you are in darkness. What you want to do is get out of darkness. Not increase darkness
Fourth in light this question cannot occur
Fifth when in light and with God, the situation is different. How so ? Out current love is a trailer not a full movie. While from God perspective, you have the full movie. And it all makes sense
Hope that helps
It is perfectly logical and benevolent from God view point
He wants all to wake up and return. But how do you get rid of the obsession of sense enjoyment?
How can god tell you that there is more fun in meditation? Going in Samadhi?
In order to go into Samadhi you need to give up desires for sex and food etc. and in order to give up desires for food , you need to go into Samadhi
But we cling to this world ferociously. Never wanting to give it up. We want to Enjoy it again and again
So sometimes a little pain in life, rudeness from others they are a reminder to leave this world.
Too much pain is not helpful though
More later. I need to go!
