In Class 44 you will:
- learn all about being perfect
- the ways perfection is around us all the
There is an idea of heaven, of
perfection in another place and time, as some kind of Garden of Eden where
everything is flawless and nothing ever goes wrong and there is no
But what about the idea that what we have here and now on earth is heavenly
but out of ignorance we choose hell?
The Garden of Eden scenario is born out of the idea that we are visitors,
temporary inhabitants of this strange land with no real express purpose
other than to be drifting through to our real final static unchanging destination, heaven.
That we are sort of victims of a creator’s wish for us to be readied, to be
made perfect, for our real life in the thereafter. That this world is
imperfect and full of suffering for some grand reason we don’t quite
understand but we will totally comprehend when we are sitting in the clouds
free from all misery whilst somehow being oblivious to the suffering of the poor wretched
souls still here.
This victim mentality frees us from any responsibility for what happens in
our lives, indeed, for any of the pain and suffering of anyone or anything
else, because this world is a way stop not a destination, and we are victims
of the vagaries of fate. Coincidentally our whole society is built around
this idea of working towards another space and time. We work so we can
retire in financial security or have more things or get to some other place
or time. We are in a permanent state of 'waiting for something else'.
Many people today would say that this is too simplistic, and that staid idea
of perfection, so boring and lifeless it is more a hell than a heaven.
Imagine for a moment, what perfection might actually mean to you. Just take
a second and really reflect on it. A surfer, for example, might consider
perfection to be 4-6’ barrelling waves that go on for ever, are easy to
catch and you never get pounded. But if you think about that for a moment,
you might realise that actually it would be good if every wave didn’t
barrel, if some closed out, some got too fat, so that we could appreciate
the barrelling waves all the more. Then you might also ponder that well
actually it would be good, if some days it was smaller and others larger and
more scary just to give the range of experience and keep it interesting and
make us value the days it was perfect. Then thinking about it some more you
might think it would be good if some days there was no surf at all just so
that you could get yourself excited and motivated about the next swell, and
then others so nasty that you nearly drown just so you might give the ocean
and your life some respect. Well then, it might dawn on you, that the
strange reality is, is that is exactly what we have.
You see, perfection is actually not static, otherwise it would not perfect,
it would be dead. Perfection is alive and changing, flourishing and
evolving, a verb not a noun, it is a journey, not an endpoint, and it is present
not at some other time and place but here and
now. It is impossible to have perfection after we're dead or in another age
or situation that would be to say that the perfect existence is static and unevolving and that it is
just dead and boring.
For a moment, just consider it, really reflect on the idea that perfection
is coming and it will arrive and then we all just stop and sit and enjoy a
perfect static state that never changes again but everything we could ever
want will be there in infinite measure. It would be boring in about 30
seconds, because that is not our nature, it is not what we are, it is not
what the universe is, every part of it, every single part of it - is
changing, is evolving, is journeying. The existence of every single soul in
the universe is predicated on the fact that every single one of us is
evolving and that is what is so perfect.
The wonderful thing is that all of us are on that journey. We all are,
whether we realise it or not, perfect. Now. We are not awaiting another
time, it is all now. We can be happy, now, sad, now, suicidal, now, euphoric
and blissful, now. Every moment has the perfect potential to be everything
and everyone, now.
First let us start with the earth. This place and time is so perfect because
if you think about it, it is an absolutely perfect manifestation of our
collective states of mind. The exact amount of hate that we feel is in the
world is exactly the amount we will see, the exact amount of love, the exact
amount of peace, whatever we feel is here is what we will see. What makes
this so perfect is that every single one of us feels this differently at
every moment in our lives and still the world perfectly reflects whatever we
Well, you might say, I am full of love but still I can see that there is
hate, or I am full of peace but still I see there is restlessness, but then
stop and really notice what is going on inside you, if you were completely
full of the highest, unconditional love then there would be no room for
hate. You might see it, but you would not recognise it as hate, you would
see it as a place where there was an emptiness or a lack of love, because
you would not have an experience known as hate.
This is the amazing thing about us, whatever experience we are having we
create, we own, because we are the person thinking it, the person with the
consciousness to make it an experience, making it real, contributing to the
collective states of mind, that make our earth, our universe.
That is what makes this so perfect. Every single person can be in
the highest ecstasy or the darkest underworld at any moment we choose for
as long as we choose, because we create it, we own our experience.
No-one else ultimately can change that, we each are the creators and
proprietors of our own experience.
All the suffering, all the greed, all of everything is created by the
experiences of each of us, the collective states of minds and our universe
perfectly reflects it back to us.
If no-one was thinking of hate there would be none in the universe. If
no-one was thinking that they were stressed there would be no stress in the
universe, it does not exist without someone creating it, by thinking of it.
Everything, everything that is here, is a manifestation of our thoughts, of
us making it real by creating it through experience.
We think our thoughts are sort of pretend, that they don’t hurt anyone or
affect anything but the reality is much different, our thoughts and our
intentions are the creation commands to the universe. We are the creators,
nay, we are the creator for we each are a part of each other and every
thing, rock, plant, animal, human. One unbelievable mind, one fantastic
But this is where a major issue arises. If this was true, it would mean that
every thought is important, every second, a momentous responsibility, that
each of us are affecting each other and also ourselves. It would mean that
if I hurt you, I am hurting myself, if I hate someone or something, I am
actually hating myself and contributing to the downfall of the planet. It
would mean that everything is just, that nothing happens for no reason, it
might mean that everything is so perfectly just that whatever harm I
inflict, would come back perfectly to be inflicted upon me. It might mean
that there is nothing wiser, nothing smarter to do for anyone or anything
including ourselves, than to love. To love everyone and everything without
conditions or expectations for the pure and simple reason that that is the
best thing I can do for myself, let alone anyone else. And you might realise
that that is the real nature of heaven and that is here, now.
And that would be real perfection. And that is what we have. We are perfect.
You are perfect. It is perfect. And this place and time is perfect.
“We all come from the same potter. One potter. A maker of pots. He makes us
in different sizes, different shapes, different colors. But if we criticize
each other, then that is tantamount to criticizing the Creator Himself.” –
- Perfection in a grain of sand

for your meditation as usual
Imagine you are walking along a long, endless
beach feeling centred and in your heart.
You feel relaxed and at peace, your
body is breathing long, slow and deep breaths and you are completely at the
beach, your thoughts are not drifting, you feel completely engaged in simply
walking along this beautiful beach
You decide to sit and a single grain of sand sits upon the index finger of your
You gaze at it and for a moment feel that there is nothing else in the universe
but this perfect little piece of sand. As you focus, the more you look, the more
it feels to you as though this grain of sand is a kind of portal, a window to a
vast inner universe. You see and feel within it a journey deep into the soul’s
worlds. You can see and feel the beautiful and magnificent souls all around you,
some from nature such as the trees and flowers behind you and others from people
close to you, both alive and others from other times having passed over and
You look deeper and you can see a golden sage-like form that feels so familiar
to you, you recognise immediately as a kind of guide or master that has come to
help you. The sage immediately lets you know in an intuition that this moment
has the opportunity to be the most significant of your life. That you can fill
it with more meaning than at any other time before. Fascinated, you ask how, and
the sage simply says, ‘for as long as you can, have no other thought than love’.
‘Simply feel love in every cell of your being, for every other grain of sand,
love for every plant, for every animal, for every human, every soul in the
universe, for every other thought that anyone might be experiencing, simply feel
And as you do you feel from deep within you a beam of light, a beam of love
rising somehow from within the sage and your own heart. It feels effortless, but
somehow as though every part of you is involved in manifesting it, in expanding
it, as though there has never been anything so important as this moment and the
intensifying love rising from deep within you. You watch and you see it drift
out in a beautiful, divine light that flows out to everything around you, and
bathes everything you touch in the most powerful restorative energy imaginable.
You can see other peoples thoughts changing, being lifted, and them joining the
flow. It is so perfect and so enduring, it feels to you that this is the highest
moment of your life. You stay here for the longest time exploring and enjoying
And then just as suddenly, you are back sitting alone on a beach, looking at a
grain of sand, a single piece of sand. And you realise that there are trillions
of grains of sand, in just the metre or two around you and each just as capable
of being a portal as the one on your finger. And here you are amidst miles of
miles of this perfect beach, and that scientists say that there are as many
planets and stars in the universe as there are grains of sands on all the
beaches of the earth.
You breathe long, deep breaths and offer your gratitude to the perfection of
your magnificent and glorious life, that in a single moment, with a single grain
of sand, you can feel love, so wonderful, so powerful that it might connect you
with every single soul.
And you realise that heaven is here, now. It is perfect.
