Our “Imperfect” World
Is it a perfect or imperfect world?
Can a world with so many calamities possibly be perfect?
If this world is already perfect, “why” try and “change” a thing?
If it is already perfect, “how “can you even possibly change a thing?
Einstein shared to “look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
Yet we do not judge. We simply wave to the wandering of the weather and the stars. How can we exist in a perfect world that is filled so much pain, evil, injustice, and hatred?
As Khalil Gibran shared “For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, so shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.”
Has the world “made me” angry? When I consider the senseless torture of innocents, the vicious raping of women and children, the blatant disregard of human rights by corporations, charities, churches and countries for the people, the intentional perpetuation of ignorance to blind peoples eyes, to close peoples hearts,to shatter people spirits- I have had bitter moments.
Has the world “made me” sad? With pseudo-leaders driven by hatred manipulating the minds of many, dividing people, splitting hearts; with the death of loved ones, friends who became enemies, with loved family members who have given up on life- I have had my moments.
Has this anger and sadness evolved my mind to the mysteries of the universe, to seek, find, marvel, humble myself to the omnipresent miracles surrounding me? It has in many moments.
Imagine that the experience of two universes exist for you at the same “time”.
Right now, yesterday, tomorrow and for every single moment that comes…
In one universe, you experience judgments, preferences experienced as emotions. Here you believe a change must be made, this is wrong, we must stand together. Here we must speak, we must stand up, we must fight back. Here, we must wage war on war.
In this first universe, in this imperfect world, we further polarize, we choose sides. We close our mind and our heart to a shrinking tribe. We further divide.
PEACE creates WAR. HATRED creates LOVE.
In the first universe we cloak “our” deed in the face of the “Positive” and we “disguise” “our foes” as the face of the “Negative.” “We” stand for right, for truth, for good. for God and “they” stand for wrong, for lies, for evil, for the Devil.
Here what was co-created from the one splits further into the many.
Here King preached peace and was murdered.
Here Lennon preached peace and was murdered.
Here Ghandi preached peace and was murdered.
Here the Christ preached peace and was murdered.
In this conversation we revolve as friend and foe…
In this imperfect conversation, I must change something out there, because something doesn’t feel right “in here.”
In this second universe, you experience the underlying order, no preference, no emotions, only open hearted gratitude. Here you know no change must be made, there is no wrong, we ARE together, here we are silent, we are still and honor the glory of everything. In this perfect world, in this perfect conversation, I love what’s right here, and because I appreciate what’s here, I become what’s here. In this second universe, in this perfect world, we become the middle road, we become an infinite side; we open our mind and our hearts to the infinite picture. We unify.
Peace becomes war, hatred becomes love. In this second universe we own “our” actions as perfectly balanced and we “own” others actions as perfectly balanced. We stand for nothing, we ARE truth, beyond good, WITH GOD. They and US have no distinction, they ARE truth, beyond evil, as God’s angels.
Here what was co-created from the one returns to the one.
Here King shares,
“Let no man pull you low enough to hate him.”
Here Lennon shares,
“we all shine on, like the moon, and the stars and the sun.”
Here Ghandi shares.,
“The enemy is fear, We think it’s hate, but it’s fear.”
Here the Christ shares,
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged and with the measure you use it will measured by you”
The only way anyone can ever effectively “change” a single thing in this world is in transcending an imperfect conversation to a perfect one.
The world it full of the imperfect conversations. The few can lead the world with the perfect conversation. As leaders stand still and appreciate the perfection of the world today, they become open vessels to co-creating and evolving the world perception in tomorrow. Here you become the light, the microcosm and the macrocosm reveal themselves to you, through you.You become one in the same. Here you shine on those stuck in a revolution to liberate their evolution.
Just as the imperfect conversation happens every day, so can you evolve the imperfect to a perfect conversation in every way.
As you truly realize that every situation, every single piece of information, every single contemplation, is YOUR reflection you open the windows of the universe to you, and the doors of you to the universe.
As you transcend each judgement, as you balance each perception, you move from imperfection to perfection.
Here, you liberate the genius that can ignite a trillion stars; and as we unite the conversation of our imperfect and perfect universe the light and the darkness become one. As the Beatles shared, “I am you, and you are me and we are we and we are all together”
Rumi invited us,” beyond our ideas of wrongdoing and right-doing there is a field, I’ll meet you there. Where the soul lies down in the grass world is too full to talk about.” and as Emerson implored us to, “beware when the great God lets loose a thinker on this planet”
You ARE that thinker. You are welcome to explore the perfect conversation with me. It WILL shift your life.
