I originally penned the text for the essay which appears below for a friend and then, in a slightly revised form, for two of my email list groups devoted to spiritual topics. Now that time permits, I am also posting the revised edition of the essay to this site as well. Enjoy!
Everything is Perfect
Recently, a friend of mine sent a mass emailing to everyone – including myself -- on her email contact list. It was, as you may have already guessed – for who among us does not receive at least a few of these each week from our friends? – one of those alarmist "urgent action required in order to save/protect…" types of emails, and, as is usually the case, the email that she forwarded was an email that had been previously thrice-forwarded by others mindlessly. And, as is usually the case with such "emergency/alarmist" emails, the content of the alarmist email was, upon close examination, full of gross inaccuracies. In the case at hand, the particular email with which my friend had spammed me was one warning – in quite urgent and sensationalistic terms – of the seemingly imminent danger that the US government was about to enact a law that would require that all vegetable greens sold for market be irradiated with ionizing radiation in order to kill off pathogenic microbes.
In addition to being a scientist with a grad degree in my field, I am also a mystic. Part of my mystical path is complete surrender to what I call Holy Spirit and Supreme Heart, or, as some traditions would say, to Prajna Paramita, to Divine Wisdom. As a result of that surrender, there are things, many things, that I simply and completely KNOW, in my heart and my belly – and this has little to do with the passing and fleeting thoughts and opinions of the local mind – to be true, and the knowing also is accompanied by a kind of inner stillness and peace, as this is what I sometimes call Divine Knowing. One of the things that I know with deep certainty in my heart is that the world is perfect exactly as it is. Every being at every moment is having exactly the experience which is best for her or him, with no exceptions. And it is all governed by Supreme Heart, by Prajna Paramita. As a result of this, there are no emergencies, there are no crises, and everything is perfect exactly as it is. Any sense of emergency, of crisis, of something in the outer world which needs to be fixed, is simply an illusion of the mind, driven blindly by old and mindless patterns of fear. Likewise, all "motivation" is suspect, as it too arises from an illusion that something in the world needs changing, and that we must act or else something bad will happen. And once we know on a deep level that all is perfect, there is little room for worry and fear, and at those times when the local mind, from force of habit of millions of years of programming in the cellular memory, tends to try to return to the familiar ruts of fear and worry, we tend not to stay for long in those ruts and we find that the groove of the rut is not very deep. Instead, we return quickly to a state of love and appreciation.
Or, to phrase the whole thing in a slightly different way, here is what I wrote to a friend recently regarding another manufactured emergency:"Largely living from the level of Heart/Spirit, I tend to see the world as perfect as it is, with everything just right, and that, of course, means that we have exactly the experiences which we most need and which are best for us, from the viewpoint of Highest Self and Supreme Heart; this I know in my Heart. Everything is perfect, everything is exactly as it should be."
Whenever I focus upon these matters, some words come to mind which I first encountered years ago in one of the last books ever written by the American metaphysical author U. S. Andersen, in a very curious dream-like narrative entitled The Secret Power of the Pyramids. Andersen, aka Uell Stanley Andersen, had earlier written several metaphysical tomes which largely urged the reader to avoid the traps of pushing at the world and of "motivational thinking", and instead to surrender one's life and one's activities and goals to a higher wisdom, to a higher power. In The Secret Power of the Pyramids, he tells a most curious tale about Faina, a Hawaiian woman who was a friend and his landlord for a while during his stay in Hawaii. He had often marveled as her happiness and radiance, and by the fact that she seemed to be very much at peace with her world. He spoke to her about this matter once, and she told him that once upon a time, while she had been living in a remote mountainous area, she had encountered two mysterious luminous beings in her front yard. She reported that they did not speak with sound, but somehow she was able to communicate with them with ease. Here then, is a quote from Andersen's book of what she reported that they told her:
"They told her that henceforth she would be able to receive inspiration from above, that everything in all creation was proceeding just exactly as it should, that everyone would wind up with a "crown", and that there was nothing, absolutely nothing, to worry about."
She reported to Andersen that from that moment on, she was largely incapable of worry, and instead simply radiated love and happiness.
Well, all that strikes me as we near closing is that it might be appropriate to end this brief essay with a quote from the Bible, from the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5:1-7:27, as follows, for it is surely relevant here:
Therefore I tell you, do not worry
about your life,
what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you
wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look
birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and
heavenly father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And
can any of
you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? ... But strive
for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will
given unto you.
And so, in closing, all that I can say to you is that when I read such fear-laden "emergency" diatribes as the "danger, danger, must act now" spam emails which are so often mindlessly circulated on the web, I instantly know in my Heart and belly, via the Grace of Holy Spirit and Supreme Heart, that the words, and the fear behind them, are nonsense, are illusions, are nothing more than the natterings of worried minds that want to keep themselves busy at all costs with mindless efforts at trying to change the world.
