When natural disasters strike or some personal misfortune occurs people ask how can God let this happen? Well we can’t have it both ways; we are free thinking spirits and as such are free to think either good or bad thoughts. I feel if we were not free thinking with a freedom of choice it would be the worst kind of bondage.
Wrong thinking causes bad thing to happen, thoughts are creative so a person can’t blame God if they hold negative thoughts and the some misfortune occurs. As for natural disasters, well they have always been with us throughout history, but not everyone dies in a natural disaster* so surviving is still up to the individual and their positive thoughts.
