'Impose' is a very strong word for a mother or father, yet alone God. If He did, we'll all probably be dead by now, for we have fallen short of the glory of God. Love is the key...only Love. But again, the mother slaps the child to prevent him hurting himself.
So too, suffering and justice are aspects of God's goodness and His mercy. So many of us reject this! At least the Hindus we reject, accepts this as a natural part of the Law.
You will hear a lot about free will, even among really nice people. How can the child have free will when the mother is there? He creeps and crawls and is allowed to do so (free will) but as soon as he gets close to the cooker or stove, the mother pulls him back (limited freedom)
All we ever have is limited freedom. Since we are so free, why rely on a God then, why not do our own thing? In fact we do and we suffer, and then we remember to entreat help? So how can we be free? Once again, much Love, Bro.
