Does God Allow Bad Things To Happen?

This question does not make any sense, as God expresses through you. He is not separate from you and is not making decisions about what happens to you. We make choices, and God --- through you, with you, in Oneness with you ---brings to you those experiences which you have asked for. But we are also One, so we experience and must deal with the consequences of the choices of others, from those individuals around us to those who are in power and make decisions which affect us.

Let's start out by asking what do you consider a "bad" thing? This is the first question that needs to be examined, because everyone has a different definition of what they consider "bad" based on their own specific experiences and belief system. One person might say that alcoholism is bad, but another person might say that this is not the case if they had an experience where great healing and forgiveness came out of it. So each of us has a different definition of what is "bad." The point here is that we live in a dream world where our perceptions and definitions of things are constantly changing. Everything is just an appearance. This doesn't mean that even though it is an appearance, we accept everything as it is. The appearance changes when we change how we see it. As difficult as it may be, if you do not condone the action but see the Love behind the appearance of a murderer or rapist, you are healing many things in you, in the rapist, and in the appearance of the world.
