Everything Is Appropriate
Karma is perfect.
The law of cause and effect is perfect.
Perfect ignorance, perfect karma.
Perfect wisdom, perfect karma.
“This is perfect, that is perfect.
Perfect comes from perfect.
When perfect is taken from perfect,
perfect still remains.”
Perfect: from Latin perfectus, ‘completed’.
We are ruled by universal perfection, and there is no escape. All actions are complete in karma, and there’s no getting away from it. Everything comes about through cause and effect. Whether our intention is unconscious or conscious, there will be a result that is perfect for that situation.
The perfect laws are emptiness, consciousness and compassion. When ignored, these become the perfect gross laws of desire, aversion and indifference.
“A man who, on a icy path, ignores the laws of caution, comes under the laws of gravity.”
– C.S. Lewis.
Truth did not originate with the Buddha: he merely realised it.
The Buddha was brought up with the Upanishads.
We are all perfect Buddhas
dwelling in perfect ignorance.
In this context, perfect does not mean,
it’s all wonderful for ‘me’.
Perfect here means a rightness
according to the ingredients we put in.
