What determines the family and country into which one is born? And why are innocent children born into poor families or war-torn countries?

The Law of like attracts like or the Law of Attraction determines the family into which one is born and the country. There must be similarity between the human being and the family into which he is born. That family too is a small unit that forms the larger society that we call countries. Each of us do not belong to our families or country by chance. A great orderliness is in play guided by the Law of the Attraction of Homogeneous Species!

Some assert that there is injustice in the unequal circumstances into which children are born. Of course they are wrong. Also wrong are those who say that God’s ways are mysterious and cannot be understood. It is actually good to ask these questions until one finds the right way. The Creator also prefers that we recognize His wonderful and wise ways in everything that happens around us. That is the only way we can understand that every happening follows Divine Justice. We will then be able in all things to really give thanks.

In answering this question we need to understand that birth on earth only forms the beginning of a special section in a man’s entire existence, but not the beginning of man himself. So that new born baby is not as innocent as you might think! That soul might be here with a lot of baggage from past earth lives. The Law of Attraction and the Law of Sowing and Reaping ensures that we are not just born anywhere to just any family but to the family that we deserve based on our past deeds.

Therefore being born into a poor family or a war torn country does not happen by mistake. The person concerned needs the experiences that go with those conditions. The soul might have been an indolent person in the past and needs to taste poverty. If he resolves now to be more productive, his will be laying a foundation for a positive change and he also becomes a better person in the process. The man born into a war-torn country might have been a former powerful but warlike leader who must now experience conflict as a vulnerable person. He too gains if on reflection he resolves to make an inner change and be a peace maker.

If we think it over, we will give thanks in all circumstances because everything is made available to us for the purpose of improving ourselves and attaining deliverance from past errors!
