Not long ago, I heard it said for the first time: “We live in a perfect universe.” I thought that perhaps the speaker was confused or delusional. I have begun to understand what he meant, and now, I agree that we do live in a perfect universe.
I am guided daily, in a perfect way to do all the things that are perfect for me. I am a perfect being, and all the people around me are perfect. Any imperfections can only exist in my vision, because I might have chosen to see an imperfection, which was instead a perfect flaw.
All things must have been created perfect, and what appears to be a flaw or something “bad” is actually the outworking of a thought that was something other than what I wanted. All I need do is to want things as they are, and voila — perfection! Now, to the task of creating MORE what I DO want.
Daily, I meditate on the fact that the universe is perfect and that things happen and solve themselves, and outworkings manifest, and people arrive and move around, and all sorts of things happen in perfect harmony. Each of us, as powerful creative spirits manifest in harmony with each other. Naturally, this must be a perfect universe for that to happen.
I am happily creating in this perfect universe, and I have no qualms with calling it such to anyone I meet. God, perfect, created me and everything I see and experience, thus, it must be perfect. I don’t think that anything I or anyone else does could do anything to cause something to be less than perfect or make anything un-perfect because they are also perfect.
So, I submit that the universe is perfect, that I am perfect, and that you are perfect. I submit that we are doing the perfect work, we speak the perfect words, and we have the perfect thoughts in this and every moment. All is perfect in my world, and I like it this way.
