Answer

Dear Bhushan,

Yes, we are all part of God's dream, even the wars, sickness and poverty. And in yuga after yuga we learn a few lessons and try not to repeat our mistakes. God keeps the dream going, so it has been said, for our education and entertainment.

If everything in this world were perfect, would we want to seek God?

If you watch a movie where everything is perfect from beginning to end, will that capture your attention? Probably not. But, if you see a story where there are challenges and conflicts to be overcome, don't you think, "Oh, what a good story!"

The darkness makes the light brighter when we see it. It's not necessary to let the darkness in life overcome us - it's much more important to look for the good in things and situations, and take up the challenge to fight the darkness by making the light larger for all. Be a warrior for the light!

Joy to you,
Nayaswami Sadhana Devi
