In the grand scheme of things, we are never a victim of external events. Everything about this life and the individual experiences in this life are about our choices. Cayce had said that life is the experience of your choices, and in a "You Create Your Own Reality" (YCYOR) world that is obvious, but hard to believe. I like Seth's comment that we still have a responsibility to make the world and humanity a better place.
"Some people encounter war directly, however, in terms of hand-to-hand combat, or bombing. Others are only inconvenienced by it. Here the mass shared environment is encountered as physical reality according to individual belief, love, and intent. In the deepest meaning there is no such thing as a victim, either of war, poverty, or disease. This does not mean that those negative qualities should not be combatted, for in the terms of conventional understanding it certainly appears that men and women are victims in many such cases. Therefore, they behave like victims, and their beliefs reinforce such experience."
