Perfection: Do a little quick soul searching. Do you really understand what it means to be perfect, or, possibly, do you tend to glibly hear the term and brush it off as blather? My experience indicates that percentage-wise, very, very few people ascribe the proper attributes to perfection. Without absolute perfection, nothing in the universe could function. So what is this perfection and where is its basis?
I have stated many, many times in writing that every thing and every event of any kind is perfect in form and function and is a perfect example of what it purports to be. I am able to say that with certainty because of the known perfection of every quantum (tiniest particle if energy) which make up every gravid thing in existence. Each of those tiny particles with various names are absolutely perfect in form and function. Furthermore, there is not one more nor less in existence today than existed at the time of their inception (creation, release, appearance), and there will be no more nor less at the time of their recall. A combination of those tiny quanta make up the basic units of all atoms (protons, neutrons, electrons). A varying combination of those three basic units constitute the different elements in all creation. Those atoms may react with each other to form molecules; molecules react with each other to form compounds, and compounds can be formulated to create all the different materials in existence. All of those functions are perfect and predictable in their activity and results every time. That explains why when you get in your automobile and push the ignition button, the engine starts and you are able to navigate from place to place. That same example applies to every action or activity or occurrence of any kind in the entire universe.
You might legitimately ask, whats my point? Simply stated, my point is this. I want to shake you loose from your doldrums, and create an awareness of the perfection in all things. I want to make you think about your existence: how it came to be in the first place, how it continues, and what happens to it in the unknown hereafter. There are seemingly three basic classes of believers in the world: those who accept the concept of God; those who deny the concept of God; those who say simply they can’t (don’t) know.
For those like me who accept the idea of God, we must acclaim that God with his perfect intellect envisioned his creation (all the quanta in existence), and with his perfect will chose them and keeps them perfect. Therefore, it is impossible for anything or any occurrence to be imperfect. Every storm, every earthquake, every hurricane, every loaf of bread, every tree leaf, every grain of sand etc. is a perfect example of what it is. A second set of similar events and objects would be different from the first but each would still be perfect for its set of circumstances.
We sometimes get confused when “bad” things happen such as a car wreck and often start looking for excuses or someone to blame. We even question how God could allow such to happen. We fail to recognize that it was someone’s perfect negligence or a perfect mechanical failure, or a myriad of other perfect conditions which led to the perfect wreck. In other words, that specific wreck was a perfect result for its set of generating circumstances. So what’s my point. My point is we must always be aware of our obligation to know all that we can, to respect the perfection in everything we encounter, and more importantly be respectful of others; stop the blame game.
Those who deny God or say they simply can’t know, suggest that the perfect order in the universe “just happened”—even Stephen Hawking, the great quantum physicist, suggested such a possibility. The truth is, no one can prove nor disprove the existence of a Supreme being. That is where Faith comes in.
There are all kinds of faith: we have implicit faith that when we get on an airplane, it will take us safely to our intended destination. However, we are fully aware from previous experiences of others that failure of one kind or another may occur. Those failures are always the perfect result of a set of perfect faults which generated the outcome.
So my purpose here is to stimulate your awareness of God’s Perfection in “all things and events”.
I do not want to seem nor sound commercial, but if you want a more thorough understanding of these concepts, please read my little book Wilderness Cry (Amazon et al). In addition, I will be releasing a sequel “Peace in Spirituality” within a few months.
Happy New Year to all!!!
