How Everything is Perfect
How is everything perfect, when the people are ignoring reality?
If we do not sharpen our tool, the cut will not be clean. We know that a blunt tool will produce a ragged edge: this is not a surprise so the outcome of our inattention is perfect cause and effect.
Likewise, when we ignore our true reality of perfect consciousness – which is perfect happiness, because we understand perfect gratitude – we will not fall prey to desire. If we fall prey to desire, we will not notice that we are already perfectly happy.
Everything comes into existence due to cause and effect, so everything is perfect. “But I don’t like the way the world is, and this makes me unhappy!” That is the perfect condition to realise the cause and condition of that unhappiness.
Perfect comes from perfect.
May we recognise perfection everywhere,
and remain at peace.
