The Path of Perfection

A perfect person is one who has completely abandoned all desires as a result of being fulfilled in the self by the self. It is desire that takes away your might and power. Desire comes in the way of success. Unlimited desires agitate the mind and cause stress. Desire enslaves and weakens you. To regain perfection you need to drop desire.

However desire cannot just be wished away. You can only take up a higher desire that is more gratifying. The lower fascinations drop of their own accord. From a desire to have a toy in childhood, as you grow the desire to possess the toy vanishes. Pick up intellectual ideal and the emotional ideal loses its charm. Take the final plunge to the spiritual desire and nothing will hold you back. All desires drop. You regain your immortal stature.

As you rise above desire, object of desire comes to you unsought. The way to gain the world is to escalate to higher realms. You will obtain the lower effortlessly. Thus, you become successful, happy and grow to your divine potential. With a powerful intellect that keeps the senses and mind subdued, you take off into higher realms.

Determining the Outcome

“Thou hast power only to act not over the result thereof. Act thou therefore without prospect of the result and without succumbing to inaction”. The allusion is to being dispassionate about the outcome and not assigning a personal pleasure-pain verdict. Pleasure-pain based assessment of the outcome contains seeds of despondency and dejection along with euphoria and elation. Keeping track of the outcome of you efforts is critical in determining the future course of action. An accurate impersonal reality check of the outcome of you efforts lends a vector attribute to subsequent efforts.

Adequate concern and analysis about the outcome “vectorises” future endeavours, particularly when the task to be achieved is monumental and distant. Reaffirmation of the trajectory in such situations remains the only solace and succour to cope with trials and tribulations on the arduous journey. Every endeavour has a scale element of physical hard work, sincerity and dedication. Genuine effort and vector dimension is about working smart in addition to working hard and this is what decisively impacts the outcome. Valour without strategy is either being immature or emotional. Emotion should remain as motivation and never take over navigation. Statistically it stands to reason that all cannot succeed.

Success and failure typically are complimentary. Ability to control the outcome would make the art of trying mundane and unromantic. Probability of failure elevates the efforts of courting success to an art form. The perspiration-inspiration rhetoric crucially needs navigation to ensure success. Action without prospect of outcome is undoubtedly spiritual but outcome without respect to direction is sophomoric.
