What is perfection? Seems like a nebulous concept no? Some Utopian ideal of how things are going to be at some particular time. What if you started to realize that life has little to do with the action/reaction and more about the energy around? Many people live life thinking that if they go and do A, B, C action then D, E, F result will occur. What if it were a bit different? What if direct ego worldly actions did have results, but what if they were based on a more metaphysical level.
The Universe Account
What if the karmic system was in effect, but on a much longer timeline than anyone would have ever have anticipated. What is instead of you do X, Y, Z thing then something happens as a result in 10-20 years? I think that this is the magical mystery of life. Sometimes we do everything that we can and we don’t really understand that our actions are not directly received by the universe. All of our actions are heard, but some are stowed away for a time. But however this is calculated, we need to know that it’s all being taken into account.
Power and Responsibility
You have no idea who is watching your reaction at what times and what the ramifications of your actions might be. The best example of this I have ever seen is in the documentary Finding Sugarman. I won’t spoil it, but if you have not seen that it’s a must watch. Amazing karmic ramifications kinda flick. All we can do is act with an open heart and a simple mind. This is the best path to perfection we can find. Perfection is simply doing everything you can at every moment you can to produce a solid legacy in this realm.
What if you not only affected human culture but also plant animal and natural life? I submit that we do. We are the protectors of this planet and our souls when we choose to be, or we can also be their unwitting destroyers. As Captain Planet would say, the power is yours!
