It also means that there is no jealousy but the negative side is that it means that no one loves each other either.

Robinson Crusoe: A Man's Discovery of Himself, Civilization, and God. Just about everyone can recite the highlights of Robinson's adventures: A man is shipwrecked without resources on a desert island, survives for years by his own wits, undergoes immeasurable anguish as a result of his isolation, discovers a footprint in the sand that belongs to Friday, and is finally rescued from his exile. Unfortunately, all of this is wrong. But more significant than any of these details is that our overall perception of Robinson Crusoe is wrong. The single most important fact about this boy's adventure book is that it is not a boy's adventure book at all.
He wasn't hostile to those who forced him out of his homeland, on the contrary, he learned to love them and help them. To forgive and love your enemy is even more difficult than finding the meaning of life, but Jonathan, a little seagull, managed to act it out. While Jonathan carried on practising, he found out that" this world isn't heaven at all". Heaven is being perfect, is not limited by time and space..."there is no such place".

I am negating the fact that Thoreau obviously takes these ideas from Emerson and they are not his own, because one cannot follow Emerson’s guidelines without studying and learning them.

Indeed, it is the “[living] again in memory” (l. 110), characterized by a “mild-eyed melancholy” (l. 109), that affords them this apparent satisfaction with lives of inaction. In other words, sweet memories from their pasts, along with assurance of not having to face the future, yield the bitter-sweet feeling that is the effect of eating the lotos. It is no wonder, then, that when presented with the choice of either re-entering a world of uncertainty or sitting upon a beach, enjoying a life of rest from woe, that they ultimately choose the latter.
God is also takes part in suffering even as he continues to heal the creation. However, he admits to be unable to complete discern why God created an imperfect world. Fretheim's book provides an excellent contribution to the most complex topic, which may trigger numerous reactions. It is agreeable that his close review of the Biblical text has excellently indicated that that there must be a determinative image of God. This means that God is part of the human suffering due to his cherished relational nature with humans.
