It is the nature of humans to suffer and you have suffered for eons, through war, hatred, disease, and many atrocities that are waged on the basis of gender, culture, age or race. There are many examples of suffering on the Earth today, from countries that are ravaged by war, to hunger and abuse in your own neighborhoods. Suffering can be experienced globally and individually. Each person who allows suffering into their lives is responsible for both its presence and its resolution. Those whose nations are at war have relinquished their power to others and have chosen to live their lives in a state of powerlessness. Suffering, as with any aspect of life, is a choice, whose presence in your life is determined by your free will-you choose to suffer, just as you choose to remove suffering from your reality.
You may think of suffering as pain and that is one thing that it does bring; but the true nature of suffering involves what you undergo or experience, endure or go through. Suffering really has more to do with what you are willing to put up with in your reality than the terrible things that others do to you. What you allow to occur brings to you what you will suffer and that applies to you individually, the planet and all of humanity. To end suffering you must look at what you are allowing or accepting and begin to make other choices. If you fear to choose with your heart because of possible repercussions, then you have chosen to allow suffering. So suffering does not have to involve something as drastic as war. It can be as simple as allowing yourself to be treated badly by others or remaining silent about your desires when you would like to speak up, or even agreeing to something when you would much rather not. This is giving your power away and when you do that, you suffer.
The suffering that exists in the world today has been caused by the agreement of millions of people to suffer, to accept and to endure whatever is placed on their path. It will not take the efforts of the entirety of humanity to end suffering but it will take the intense focus and determination of many lightworkers to begin the changes that are necessary to shed light on the darkness and to teach others how to stop enduring and to begin living. They can begin by following a very simple rule for life-love one another. That does not mean romantic love, it means unconditional love which involves acceptance, non-judgment and detachment. It means understanding that all are one, all are connected to the same Source and all live within Divine Perfection. It means acknowledging each other as the Creator's expression of perfection.
Now, more than ever before, it is possible for all of humanity to live in peace and harmony, because you have a choice to end suffering your lives, individually and globally. You can make that choice by healing and releasing your karmic ties on all levels, individually, in your neighborhoods, cities and nations and by giving unconditional love to everyone you know and even people you don't know. It is just as destructive to hate a nation and its people, or a culture, a gender or a race, as it is to hate an individual. Karma exists on all of these levels and when the people of a nation agree to release it, suffering will cease. And it does not take the agreement of an entire nation; it is enough that a small percentage of people begin the work and move the energy. This creates a powerful wave of light that will overcome all fear and help others begin to stop suffering and to start living within a reality that is based on love, faith, trust and acceptance. This is not impossible; in fact, it is already beginning and you have done your work well. But you must continue, for it begins with each one of you. You have the power to change the world. As you pray, pray for others, send them unconditional love and divine healing and watch the miracle of peace unfold as suffering ends.
