Seeing Fully, by Ajahn Brahm

“Pull the thorn of existence out of the heart! Fast! For when you do, you will see thousands of rose gardens in yourself.” Rumi

Nature can be seen as a great example: even the most beautiful roses have thorns. Nothing is “perfect,” but everything is perfect the way it is.


Our commitment to evolve spiritually has much to do with learning to look at things from a more helpful perspective, learning to look at existence from the soul’s agenda, and, yes, learning to see the big picture.


Looking from the soul’s agenda, it is pretty obvious that we are not here to build the perfect wall, to become the perfect mom, to sing the perfect notes, to love the perfect way . . .


I believe it is not what we do or what we can do; it is what we learn, what we remember, and how we feel while we do what we do. As human beings, our beingness matters more than our doingness, or the end result of our doingness.


In the big picture, in the grand scheme of things, the crooked bricks on the imperfect wall are totally, absolutely irrelevant. The feelings while we build the wall, of joy, of contentment, of mindfulness, of gratitude . . . are what matter and what will remain as the energetic expression of our eternal beingness.


(Note: I used to be a perfectionist . . . until I learned recently to shift my focus, from the thorns to the roses :-D)

 yes, simple, wonderful.
all we need is a shift in perspective, and remembering of our soul's agenda and purpose.
all is perfect, as everything is but a reminder, a signpost to guide us back Home.

 To me, to be on a spiritual path is to consciously and continuously shed and let go of what is not our true identity. We have created for ourselves so many hats to wear, so many identities, most of them practical, but limited and 3D :-)

The day we come around and remember, really remember, our true identity__each of us a spark of Divine light__we'll realize that there is nothing out there to gain, to acquire, to accumulate, or to achieve, both materially and spiritually.

All that is left for us to do after that day of "remembering" is to consciously and continuously shed and let go of all the layers of conditioning we have believed and acquired, and have been holding on as part of our identity, for many many incarnations.

Until all that remains is pure Light! :-)
