This may be a bad time to talk about such horrendous and painful stuff but it often comes up in philosophy and spirituality that such horrifying events seem beyond the realm of understanding and acceptance. My new beloved and I were recently talking about why and how such horrifying stuff happens and to what purpose? - assuming the Creator has a genuine purpose for such pain and misery. I am quite steeped in Eastern Non-duality and Unity or Oneness concepts, teachings and beliefs so everything that happens in life or the universe has a definite purpose or reason from my current perspective but I have no explanation for what the purpose of the Las Vegas massacre could possibly be. If everything that happens in life is supposed to teach someone something, I cannot say what was to be learned by the victims and survivors of Las Vegas. I have a few "spiritual" concepts about the massacre but would not toss them at random others and especially not at those most hurt or damaged by the massacre. I am confident that we do not actually die so having such a horrifying experience as those that were murdered in Las Vegas is way beyond my current philosophy or understanding. I suppose one would have to be in the Spirit realm to understand why the massacre occurred and what benefits it brought - if any. Spiritual philosophy attempts to explain why horrifying things happen but I won't say what I've found in that realm since it will only hurt or inflame those who are currently suffering from that incredible event. IMO, it's not much comfort to be told that the even had to happen and that all's well over in the Spiritual realm. What's your take on the Las Vegas massacre?
