From christianity that I believe in, we humans consume the tree of knowledge (knowing good and bad), but we dont have the greater capacity to understand how to handle this, so we are in this lower realm of earth, where metaphorically we have become the same as the universal ‘God’ of this universe, but all the things which is good and bad mixed up together, we cant fully handle it wisely, we either use it wisely or manipulate it. And the way for increasing understanding of being away from pain and pleasure is through a very small difficult road, where we humans tend to consider it as ‘unfair suffering’.
You know we tend to perceive God because of what happened to us in this life and some doesnt believe and have anger or antipathy to it. Or some have curiosity. But this all is just human thing.
With this knowing good and bad, we project what is exist within us to something greater from us, either we believe there is God or not, we are talking about something regarding that existence itself. God is like yin and yang. In the bible God said Himself, “I am the creator of this universe, I create day and night, peace and calamity” this statement is a mystery.
Isaiah 45:7 I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things. (NIV)
Dont worry this is the thing that can be quite difficult to explain, short message : God doesnt abandon humans in their world suffering. Regardless if life feels so hard, there is an unseen thing we have to acknowledge that is you can be sharp resilient when you go through tribulations and triumph over it. Maybe something so incredibly shitful happened in your life, so you just want to complain or angry and became hateful. But rest assured, there is no way God let suffering like its nothing.
The idea that this world is a place of suffering that there’s the knowledge of good and evil, it doesnt mean God let babies being killed, but we humans who live near the babies, what are we doing? The good humans will do justice, the bad humans will keep being bad.
We just have to do and use good to balance this world, since this world is in the middle, low frequency. Below our realm is the destruction, the upper realm is where we couldnt reach yet, because we are bound to this world. Yes this is true, hence we have to not identify ourselves with the world, because our souls are not from this world. Where kingdom of destruction wants to ruin our souls. Jesus wanted humans to not depend on the human flesh (Desires, where the supernatural kingdom of darkness of this world reign supreme tries to manipulate it, the devil wants to ruin and manipulate humans, so Jesus wants to save this world through letting people know to leave from the old form but reborn a new. His Sword (is His Words) and His existence while on earth, He exorcized many people to get rid of legions demons within human body.
Imagine how humans can live if all their life only experience peace and harmony… they became blind and dull and dont know truth. Thats why there is something good and wise if we know suffering. Its making us aware and we can know which way is bad and good, since we have freewill. Remember, diamonds and swords go through process of heat. This is a good analogy for the topic here I believe.
Its understandable if you have your own views regarding God, if you hate God, its definitely personal dwellings we experience. But still, dont worry.
To be beyond pleasure and pain, this is the key.
