O’ Compassionate Master what is the key to a fulfilling life? Please share.
The Master smiled “Today I am going to share with you a simple secret for a fulfilling life. But, before I do that I hope you do remember that this whole creation is perfect. All that exists in this world is perfect and remains in the state of perfection at all times.
Man is perfect and the only thing that is imperfect about man is his understanding and awareness of his true reality. Man’s imperfect understanding is the cause of illusion or maya that entraps man in the endless cycle of birth and death. Therefore, perfection is in the very nature of man for that is who he is? Now the question arises how does man achieve this perfection? And this is the secret I wish to reveal today.
Man needs to attempt PERFECTLY every activity, however big or small it maybe. All it requires is to bring the awareness to the task or activity being attempted. Once you are fully present to the task being undertaken then all you have to do is to execute it to the best of your ability or understanding.
The perfect attempt is important and not the perfect result. You don’t have to compete with any external benchmarks. You don’t have to compare yourself with anyone. You just have to give it your best shot without bothering about its result. You have to keep doing this in everything that you do till it becomes a habit.
Everything includes even the smallest of things like cutting vegetables, filling a glass of water, tying your shoe laces, putting your clothes on, folding your newspaper, etc. You set your own standards of perfection and since there is no comparison with others there is no pressure on you. It’s like a game, a very enjoyable game. Remember only perfect attempt without focusing on the result. Perfection becomes your very nature. You discover you true potential. Results automatically start falling in place. Soon, you start scaling new heights. Try it! life becomes very fulfilling.”
What the Master shared seemed ridiculously simple and plausible. It was too good to be true. I realized this would work with people of all ages. In fact this should be our focus with children. I understood that awareness was the key. The key was to give my best and let the result be the consequence of my effort.
In Gratitude I remain!
Love, Light and Perfection,
