Often the question arises as to why there is so much evil in the world and yet God is said to be so good and so powerful. Many people do not believe in God because they cannot fathom how a good and almighty God would allow so much evil to take place in the world. Why is there suffering? Why can't everything just go right and we all live happily ever after? I have thought about this question for a long time now and I am still contemplating it and its implications.
There is one thing that stands out with this problem of pain and it is the concept of way. It is because of a particular "way" that the world is the way it is today. The determinant of the direction of anything is dependant on the corresponding way of that thing. For example, the direction that each individual takes in their life and the things that they hope for and do is directly dependant on the "way" that they live by.
