In reply to Dave: I can see how with too much spiritual delving and soul-searching its easy to say sexual abuse is a blessing, because the pain never leaves that soul completely. Just as a being will always need air and water.
But wouldnt it be much more a blessing to teach the way of God. In the bible there's clear direction on how sin is a constant stealer of blessings. Our prophets we're abused so we wouldnt have to be. The only person cracked was the person who commited the sexual abuse. And their sin, will cause them to go to a place so horrible if they dont gain forgiveness from God.
How vigilant the war has always been here on Earth. Between God and The Devil. Everywhere, in each culture, that yin and yang, black and white, heaven and hell, is always at work. And we're the only ones, all us living beings, who can choose, to do right, or wrong. Everyday we're alive. Because we're not above or below, we're right here. On Earth, going in 2 directions. Heaven or Hell.
Those blessed to travel astrally, meditatively, physically, etc.. are so very lucky in their ignorance or blessing because so many people are so lost, entangled, ensnared, by their own lack of sight, thier poor faith, their honest personalities easily lead into mischief, they dont give contention a fair pedestal and say, "Stop". I will not compete. I will BE. I am going the right direction at a speed I can understand what I'm doing, because so much around me is wrong.
The Hare and the tortoise always gave me the creeps with its over-bearing advice, but now tells a story so close to reality its scary.....
Proverbs 19:15 - Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless man goes hungry.
Proverbs 21:15 - When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous, but terror to evildoers.
