10.2 – Rape

Rape is a traumatic experience. Victims of rape should be met with a lot of love, so that they may easier deal with the experience emotionally. In case of rape a medical vaginal cleansing would be advisable, especially if a pregnancy is to be prevented. If this does not happen then it is chosen to accept a possible pregnancy. If conception occurs, this should be considered a gift from God. If the mother is unable to love the child as a creation of God and be aware that it’s soul is not responsible for the forceful conception but only used the chance to receive a body to live in and come to the mother, then the mother should still carry out the pregnancy and give the child up for adoption. In such cases of forced conception it is the task of the mother to love life, unconditionally – regardless how it was biologically created. This may not be an easy task, but all humans receive many tasks and also this one can be mastered. Rape definitely has consequences for the rapist, and the victims should try to forgive the assailant. Forgiving may not be easy for the victims, but it is necessary in order to put these experiences behind and go on with life, without low emotions which would be hindering their spiritual growth. Hate against the assailant only surrounds you with low energy, but it is important to remember universal love and to transform low emotions of hate through forgiveness.
