"If I were God ...."

“If I were God ….”

“Damn that free will, huh, Anthony?!”


  Several years ago, I thought about writing a monograph entitled,

If I Were God:

And You’d Better Thank Your Soul I’m Not.

The thesis of the paper was my thoughts on how I’d changed things if I were in charge. Amongst other things, I’d do away with the evil acts people do to one another by turning bullets into butter after they were shot at someone, and I’d turn knife blades into rubber. I had a whole litany of things I would change, including Hitler into a poet. Then the thought occurred to me, “If I did those things, how would I be showing love for my creation?” In other words, “Without free will, can love even exist?”

The souls say that everything we go through in our lives, no matter how gut wrenching, is necessary for the growth of our soul. The question is whether, having lived through it, do we choose to learn from it? If we don’t learn from what’s happened and what’s going on in our lives, it’s an opportunity that we cannot grow, and benefit from, here on earth; and we lose the reward it offers in the hereafter. In other words, we must choose to learn from the circumstances we find ourselves in, and if it’s going to be of any value to us spiritually, and that includes the loss of those we love.

It’s not unusual for people who are grieving to feel depressed. Underneath that depression is sadness. Underneath that sadness is typically anger. Underneath the anger is fear.

The souls say that unless we face what we’re afraid of, until we no longer fear it, we’ll never fully live our lives as we were meant to live them. Free will is the “wild card” here. We need to choose, and truly want, to change whatever isn’t working in our lives in order for it to be a lesson that we grow from, not only here, but on the Other Side.
