what are suffering & evil? (52:24)
Updated: Sep 26
This video draws on concepts from another video titled Special Relativity. It's not necessary to watch that first, but I do recommend it.
Here, I trace evil & suffering from the universe's origin to its arising in the individual being. I characterize them as part of a divine legacy central to our existence & purpose. They aren't an outgrowth of some flaw or terribleness in humanity or the individual. Quite the contrary, they are fundamental to our very existence, & our intimate experience with them is the key to realizing our true nature & returning to our original, divine state.
