Enlightening Food for Thought from The Teachings of Joshua…
If you haven’t yet heard of the term Law of Attraction, or Rhonda Byrne’s book, The Secret, I’ll eat my hat. The existence of LOA (as it is affectionately abbreviated) has taken the world by storm. Some of us believe in it to a point, some of us know of its truth with absolute certainty – and some of us are completely skeptical (if you can’t see it/taste it/hear it/smell it/touch it… how can it possibly exist?).
All of which are fine and completely normal. There is definitely never a crowd on the leading edge.
Life is a journey and the teacher will appear when the student is ready. One of the great teachers in my life (not to discount the good job most of my school teachers made) is Gary Temple Bodley. Gary and I met via mutual friend (and LOA coach), Jeannette Maw, a few years ago on her hugely popular Good Vibe Blog (check it out for a treasure trove of practical, bite size nuggets on all things Law of Attraction) and his books and insights have transformed my life in the very best way. I’d read The Secret, like many people, but I was hungry for more… and I sensed that there was much more to the Law, much more to discover.
I was just a little bit right!
Anyway, on with the show, because today Gary has a special piece of channeling to share with us from The Teachings of Joshua
So read on if you’d like to challenge your perception… and you may need to read this a couple of times. Not just because of the challenge to a possibly new way of thinking, but because the beauty of all of Joshua’s teachings (and indeed those of other leading edge LOA teachers such as Abraham Hicks), is that with every read, something new will jump out at you – in a very good way. Suspend your mind chatter and immerse yourself, for this particular piece is a really timely one:
Perfection and Imperfection
Everything is right. There is no wrong anywhere in the universe. The perception of wrong can only come from a limited perspective. From the higher perspective everything is right. If it is right, then it is perfect. Right equals perfection. The distance from the sun to the earth is perfect. The distance from the earth to the moon is perfect. If these distances were diﬀerent than they are, you would literally not exist in your current form. You exist, therefore you are perfect, as is everything that exists.
If everything is perfect as it is, then where is the imperfection? Imperfections can only be created through judgment. Without judgment everything that exists is right and perfect. However, judgment also exists and therefore judgment too is perfect. Judgment is often inﬂuenced by fear. Without fear, everything would be judged as right and perfect. The more you reduce the inﬂuence of fear, the more perfect everything is perceived. The less fear, the more love. The more love, the less judgment. The less judgment, the more acceptance. The more acceptance, the more perfection.
What about the things you do not like? Are these things also perfect? Indeed they are. The fact that you personally do not like something or someone does not bring forth imperfection. It is simply an indication of fear resulting from the activation of a limiting belief. Without the limiting belief, there would be no resulting fear and therefore there would only be acceptance. You accept that which is considered perfect. The more acceptance you oﬀer to all things, the more you will perceive things to be perfect. The more intense your limiting beliefs, the more you will notice the imperfections.
In order to abide by your limiting beliefs and avoid fear at the same time, you must control your conditions. In the control of the conditions, you will seek to create a state of perfection. However, this state based in control is never reachable and so you strive to make changes to your conditions only to be cast back into imperfection. This triggers more limiting beliefs and causes you to feel more fear. It is the old approach to life. In seeing everything as perfect as it is, you can simply let things be and move toward that which you personally prefer. If you can stop and understand that the idea of wrong is simply your interpretation of conditions in a way that activates limiting beliefs, you can address those beliefs rather than casting judgment on that which you perceive as bad or wrong. If there is no bad or wrong, then what you are left with is fear. Deal with that internally rather than changing conditions.
The conditions now are perfect. You either feel fear or feel love. In the good feelings associated with love, you are seeing the conditions as right as they are. If you feel fear, you are simply perceiving conditions inaccurately. Your perception has been thrown out of whack due to the activation of a limiting belief. Something has caused you to alter the perception of your reality so that it is now out of alignment with the true reality. What you are perceiving is an illusion. It might be a very convincing illusion and this is why you argue with it so ﬁercely. However, the way you can see through the illusion is to notice whenever you think something is wrong or bad. Once you understand that
you are judging something or someone to be wrong or bad, you can know for certain that you are currently perceiving a false reality. Address your fears and limiting beliefs before you take action to change the condition. If you change perfect conditions, you create chaos and more fear.
If you notice that something is wrong and you take some action designed to correct the perceived problem, you are simply chasing shadows. You see, if the wrong exists in your reality, it is there to make you aware of the vibration you are oﬀering. Your reality is simply a reﬂection of your vibration.
It is a mirror to how you are being. If you do not personally prefer something, notice that it is there to alert you to some aspect of your vibration that is not in alignment with who you really are. Address this frequency rather than the condition itself. Change you belief, not the thing you do not like. If you can do this, you will notice a shift in your reality towards perfection, rightness, ease, and more acceptance.
With our love,
We are Joshua

2 thoughts on “Seeking Perfection amidst Imperfection”
I love this, I read The secret many years ago and decided this year to start introducing it into my life.
It’s strange how things then ’appear’
I’ve just read your amazing book The cocktail bar and as I was posting my review I read in your author bio how you are a LOA fanatic! So here I am on your great blog! I

Awesome! Yeah, I’m a bit of an LOA junkie. It’s just remembering to remember. But there’s definitely no such thing as a coincidence and I love how I meet so many like-minded people through my books. Feels very magical. I am so pleased you enjoyed The Cocktail Bar. It was pure fun to write 😉
