Q. I understand Michael's teaching regarding the necessity of both causing harm and being harmed in order to evolve. The question I struggle with is regarding the magnitude of suffering being caused through wars, genocide, terrorism; why are these very harsh actions happening and why have we not learned, through so many lifetimes, not to hurt one another?
MICHAEL: Learning does occur, but it is a slow process. Until recently, there were always newborn souls coming along who needed to learn the lessons as the old souls cycled off. This is, by nature, an aggressive planet. It is a pressure cooker. Growth comes relatively quickly compared to gentler planets, but with more violence.
