Our current evolutionary goal is to become Soul conscious in our brain awareness. However, our ultimate evolutionary goal, in essence, is perfection. What did Christ say? “Be ye perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect.” The so-called “Father in Heaven” is our Monad or Mighty I AM Presence. Just as the Overlighting Soul is the prototype of the Soul in incarnation – of the “conscious thinking I,” of you and I here on Earth – think of the Monad as the prototype of the Overlighting Soul. So we here on Earth, in our brain awareness, we strive towards the Overlighting Soul, and the Overlighting Soul strives towards the Monad, and the Monad strives towards Source, ultimately.
So, we are given the advice to strive towards perfection. The word perfect comes from the Latin perficere which means to finish, to complete. The journey we are on right now will be finished when we have become perfect, as our Creator is perfect.
That’s why, if we want to become Soul conscious in our brain awareness and reach our current evolutionary goal and our ultimate evolutionary goal (ultimate, as far as we are able to conceive what that means, in our current stage of evolution), we should start striving towards perfection in our thinking, our feeling, our actions, our words, our deeds. We should strive to perfect our language, our behavior, our social intercourse, our diet, our service work, our everything – consciously, in our brain awareness.
To strive just means to give our best effort. To strive just means to try to better ourselves every day a little bit. Perfection is our ultimate goal. We won’t attain it in this lifetime, however, we should start striving towards it in our daily activities, in our daily conversations, in our daily life to the best of our ability.
To perfect means to attune our instruments (physical, emotional and mental bodies) to the tune of the Soul and Mighty I AM. And when we consciously strive to attune every aspect of our consciousness and constitution to the tone of the Soul, we create harmony in our service instrument. We become like a symphony. Currently, our instruments are not tuned to the tune of the Overlighting Soul. There is no symphony in our instruments, there is dissonance instead of resonance and that’s the reason for illness and disease. When we strive to attune our physical, emotional and mental bodies to the tune of the Soul, we create harmony in our instruments and return to mental, emotional and physical health. Lack of health simply means that our instruments (body, mind, emotions) are not properly tuned. And we tune our instruments by striving towards perfection. Perfection is the pitch of the Soul, if you can say that. Striving for perfection is how we eliminate the mental, emotional and physical/etheric causes of sickness. Striving for perfection is how we eliminate all dissonances in our system, all wrong tones. So, if you have a health lesson right now, strive to perfect your thinking, your feeling nature, your language, your diet, your everything. Health is just another word for perfection and resonance. Lack of health, sickness, illness, disease, is really just another word for imperfection and dissonance. So, to heal yourself, transcend your imperfections to the best of your ability.
So here is your assignment if you choose to take some action: Take a piece of paper and write the word “perfection” on it, and put a copy of it all over the place to remind yourself throughout the day to perfect whatever you are doing or thinking or feeling at the moment. Or put a post-it on your computer. Do whatever works for you so you don’t forget to do it, but throughout the day, try to do everything you do as perfectly as you can. The meal you prepare for your family, the project you are working on in your job, the conversation you have with your partner, the meditation you do in the morning, the run you do in the evening.
Strive for perfection to the best of your ability and realize that this is how you heal yourself. The word health comes from the Old English and means whole. To strive towards perfection means to strive for attunement with the whole. Again, health is just another word for resonance and perfection. Lack of health is just another word for dissonance and imperfection. Think about that. And again, remember, perfection is not something we will attain in this lifetime; it will take us all of eternity to attain perfection, however, we should start striving towards it, consciously, here and now, if we want to become Soul conscious in our brain awareness which happens to be our current evolutionary goal.
Remember, the 21st century shall go down in history as the Age of the Soul. To launch the Age of the Soul, we have to become Soul conscious in our brain awareness, and striving to perfect ourselves on all fronts is one way by which we achieve. I hope I could be of service to you. Have a great day. Bye.
