We have all been there. Someone hurts you, betrays you, fights you, or tries their very best to destroy you… and yet, they’re still OK. Some of these cruel people even prosper!
Why? It does not seem fair. Some of us will curse God, abandon beliefs, succumb to depression, or take matters into our own hands and revenge.
But there are many reasons your enemy has not (and may not) receive repercussion from the Universe. In fact, when that person transitions, their spirit will even be rewarded for what they have done to you (here ‘rewarded’ means that the spirit will be elevated within the Heavens for it’s work on Earth).
Now why is this? It is difficult to grapple with the idea that God, or the Universe, something we all want to believe is Holy and Benevolent, rewards wicked actions.
The truth is, the Universe does not operate on Good vs. Bad. The concept simply does not exist. What does exist is what works. What will work to make something happen? There must be fire in order to spark action.
This is where the role of enemies becomes important. Your enemy will be the fire, your action will lead you to a direction you would not have otherwise taken, and that direction will open your path…
Let’s look at this example:
Jenny and Leroy has a son. His name is Gerald. Unbeknownst to Jenny and Leroy, Gerald was born with what we refer to as a ‘Great Star‘ (meaning that he has come to make a great impact on the world). Jenny runs off and leaves Leroy and Gerald, never to be heard from again.
Leroy becomes bitter and although he has remarried and had other children, something about Gerald reminds him of his mother…
So Gerald’s life is hard. He becomes the slave of the household. He is often beaten and ridiculed for small things, or sometimes for nothing at all. At age 16, he is thrown out of the house and forced to find his way on his own.
However, somehow, bitterness does not settle into his stomach. His only focus is survival; and there is a part of him that becomes deeply compassionate with other young people with a plight similar to his…
Gerald takes to the streets and ends up in a gangsta life. He forms a gang, and they become his family. However, because of his rise to power within that gang, he is betrayed by his members and set up to be killed. He finds himself out of the situation but then begins to analyze the level of betrayal that he has encountered since birth, beginning with the abandonment of his mother.
Eventually as he grows into his own adulthood, Gerald realizes he has to make it on his own. He then turns to a creative lifestyle (music, producing, etc.) He begins a mentorship program for the youth and life, as it progresses, becomes extremely successful for him. He then returns to his family after awhile and employs some of his siblings that were cruel to him…
Now, take a look at Gerald’s parents. Had Jenny not abandoned the family, and had Leroy not hated him for it, and had he not experienced betrayal, Gerald could not have found his path. If you want to be analytical, Jenny actually doesn’t know why she has abandoned her family, though she may try to qualify it. In fact, Jenny simply feels this is something she must do, no matter the reason. Others would look on from the perspective of ‘good vs. bad’ and criticize Jenny and Leroy’s “unfair” actions towards Gerald.
However, these occurrences were contracts between the spirit of Gerald, Leroy, and Jenny, hence why Jenny feels compelled to leave the family, regardless of conscience. In this instance, Gerald has a brighter star on Earth than Leroy and Jenny, so before coming to Earth, the 3 spirits must “agree” to set Gerald on his path to discovering his destiny. In other words, Leroy and Jenny are nothing more than “supporting actors” in Gerald’s script of life.
Believe it or not, the sole purpose of Leroy and Jenny’s life is to set Gerald on his path to greatness, and since they have both did their duty, their spirit’s will be elevated for successfully fulfilling it’s purpose.
Now, what you must understand is that no one’s purpose on Earth is for our own sake, but for the sake of others. Gerald’s purpose is not about becoming a famous musician or producer, but about the power this platform will give him in order to make a difference to humanity in some way. This difference will ultimately affect the “light” of the Earth, which is the ultimate purpose.
The light you bring to Earth literally affects the whole system of not only Earth, but the Universe. So, the harder your life is, the more light you embody.
Keep in mind that this post is not to say that all “wicked” people will get by. Some absolutely do not. There are some evil that are apart of your journey, and there are others who are not, and these ones are those who serve no purpose in the “lightbringer’s” life. They are simply malevolent. Some of these malevolent folks actually need chaos in order to pay off whatever debt they owe spiritually. So they create this chaos by becoming an enemy to an innocent person. While others, create chaos in order to maintain balance.
The Universe is slightly complicated, but not entirely…
How can you tell the difference between an enemy who is written apart of your journey, and one who is not? Observe the enemy that SHOUTS and makes it plain as day that he is your enemy, and the enemy who moves as quiet and gentle as a cat…
Which one do you think is written in your story?
If you haven’t guessed already, it is the enemy who shouts that is apart of your destiny, and not the quiet one (usually). These evil ones absolutely do receive punishment, and not for the idea of “good vs. bad”. One receives punishment merely because they have interfered with the progression of the “system”. By becoming your enemy, your journey is halted, and so is your purpose to the Earth. Therefore, the Universe must interfere.
Here is a vital tip for you all:
When you are going through hardships and all is too silent… there are no dreams, no revelation, no prayers answered, what you are going through is apart of your destiny for the betterment of you. No matter how sad it is. No matter how harsh it is. Always remember this.
