Don’t try to be perfect. Don’t expect others to be perfect. Don’t try to make them perfect. There is no cure for the human condition. Remember that you can loose everything in an instant. What does it matter then if it wasn’t perfect? You will still want it back. You will then understand how you couldn’t separate perfection from your own ideas about it. Perfection isn’t personal. Perfection always contains imperfection. There is no cure for the human condition.
What is achievement? What is success? Why do you worry about it? All you can do is to be as you are. Suffer the consequences of what you are. Live as you are. Love as you are. Grieve as you are. There is no cure for the human condition.
Be as you are and do what you do. Not until you are prepared to suffer the consequences of what you are will you get a glimpse of what is beyond the human condition. Not until you are prepared to suffer the consequences of what others are will you get a glimpse of what is beyond the human condition.
Most people choose to fight the consequences instead of accepting them. They think they are struggling for freedom, happiness, love, peace. But in that fight all is lost and they just suffer.
It is difficult to figure out what suffering the consequences of what you are really means. I can’t help you with this. You have to figure it out on your own. It’s different for everyone. All I can say is that it’s worth it.
Don’t look for a reward although a reward will come. Focusing on the reward means that you are not prepared to live the consequences. The whole New Age movement but also many religions have stopped at focusing on the reward, on getting what you want. If you do, nothing will ever happen and you will just go on suffering. Nothing that you want will have much meaning. You may not even know what it is that you want.
The more you suffer the consequences of what you are the more you are able to love, the deeper into life you fall, the closer to God, or existence, you are. You will “improve” automatically but by then improvement has lost its meaning since improvement is just a way of avoiding the consequences of what you really are.
The more you are able to suffer the consequences the truer to yourself you are, the more peace and freedom you have. But don’t look for the reward. Just watch your human condition. Be as you are. Be. As. You. Are.
