Is Cancer intended by God or Is it just there? *When I mean is it just there, I mean we as Humans created cancer* Cancer is a big concern today. A lot of it has to do with what we consume and other reasons etc... But is it intended by God? I don't know the answer to be honest. But in my opinion why would God put cancer in this world for a reason and know we would find cures for it. Doesn't that just beat the purpose of Cancer if God intended it to harm people? OR Is Cancer just caused by many things we have around today in this world in food and unclean water? Why does it exist is the question? Why would God put such a life-taking disease in this world? Or did we create cancer ourselves over time? People use evolution for the cause of cancer. Or groups like Christians will say Sin brought cancer to the world. Who knows? We are responsible for our own suffering due to our desires not being in our control and individual past actions (individual karma) Suffering is the mechanism which brings us back to the reality of God Evil is just the absence of good and allows us to understand the value of goodness Death is not suffering, it is the one thing that life guarantees and is not the end Guru Arjan Dev Ji’s example should give us the strength to get through suffering We should realise that our situation could be a lot worse and to learn from the experience Meditation, sharing and honesty are proactive ways to end suffering http://www.wahegurunet.com/why-is-there-suffering Answers would be appreciated.
