The perfect something!
Imagine putting loads of time, effort, resources and determination into making something happen. Imagine creating a template for the PERFECT CV which would get you ANY job you wanted. What if you found a way to speak with others so that they engage in, believe in, and want WHATEVER you’re selling? The investor’s dream, would be to find a formula to earn over 20% EVERY time he/she made an investment. What about finding a way to manage your time which keeps EVERYONE happy? How about the perfect teacher. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we found a way to teach, so that the student grasped the concept and even better; they EXCELLED in EVERY single lesson.
I’m sure there are many people who would love to do one, or some, of the above.
Reality check – I don’t think they exist at the moment!
But what if…
What if we managed to create just one of them?
I doubt that we would want to share this ‘super creation’ with others, and if we did; we would want a lot of money for it.
Those who teach us to find peace
A self realised teacher wouldn’t think about earning money. They wouldn’t have a plan to get as many followers as possible. They wouldn’t be after any form of status. They wouldn’t want anything from us at all!
YET, he or she would have put SO much effort and time, into becoming self realised. How can it be that all they want to do is share what they have learned, so that we can achieve the same? Maybe it’s not something that we’ll really understand until we achieve it. But until then…isn’t it amazing that they are so selfless, generous and compassionate?
