Seeing the perfection

When you have an unconditional love of Life, then you love Life just the way it is showing up, right here, right now. This is only possible when you are “seeing the perfection.” (Neale Donald Walsch)

“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as WE are.” (see Note 1 below regarding attribution)

Things in the world show up based on the way we look at them. The more we look at the imperfections of the world, the more imperfections we see. The more we see things as perfect, the more the world shows us its state of perfection. (Blog: Conscious Bridge : Evolving to Oneness)

There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic. (Anaïs Nin, Fall 1943 – see Note 2 below)

In creation alone there is the possibility of perfection. (Anaïs Nin, May 11, 1935 – see Note 2 below)

Note 1: Allen Frances, writing for New Scientist, suggests that “This simple Talmudic saying summarises the essence of epistemology” – the branch of philosophy concerned with the nature and scope (limitations) of knowledge. The aphorism is also to be found in Intuition by David Myers, who attributes the quote to the Talmud, although it is more usually attributed to Anaïs Nin. Both attributions are disputed.

Note 2: Citations dated Fall 1943 and May 11, 1935 from the diary of Anaïs Nin. The latter was published in Fire : From “A Journal of Love” : the Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin, 1934-1937 (1995)
