Gautama Siddharta said “When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.” — and I found out that he was right… eventually.
It’s been at least 12 months since I first read that quote. At first I just laughed at the absurdity of the idea… but I just couldn’t put it out of my mind. The idyllic possibility that life is somehow perfect is just too enticing to ignore.
So, over the last 12 months I began to ask better questions and get better answers about how to view life from this perspective. And, over the last 6 months I have put my realisations in writing — culminating in my first book “The Journey Back to Bliss” — about how to live a life you love (right now, not when you’re dead!!).
I’m going to talk about this quote a lot more in future posts, but right now I’d just like to issue you a challenge — to ask yourself, without negativity, the following question everyday…
“How is everything perfect?”
For me, I began to see [a] that everything was in balance (an equal amount of good in every “bad” situation) and [b] that “bad” situations always had a “good” potential outcome.
I began to see that life was on our side.
What about you? When have you seen that “bad” situations bring about “good” outcomes? It’d be awesome if you could share your stories to encourage others on their journey!
