COMPLETION



Right Action


through the integration of knowledge and experience



The goal of the soul (dependent upon your point of view) is to return or to evolve to a pristine state of consciousness.  This refining process takes place over many lives and explains the difference in individual attitudes and behaviour; in simple terms the task is to complete the journey.  To do this we must master not only the physical world but the mental and emotional aspects of our personality.


As we progress on the soul journey we become increasingly aware of the consequence of our actions and begin to make more considered choices.  We must learn how to curb emotional response if we are ever to develop a true sense of spiritual connection to something greater than ourselves.

This  is  a  Process

An  Evolution  of  Consciousness



First we hurt others and justify our actions...


Then we learn not to hurt others to avoid the penalty imposed……


As we develop ‘a conscience’, we only hurt others to protect  ourselves or others……….


In time we learn that retaliation simply perpetuates the cycle of repetition.

CYCLES  OF  LEARNING


Every day is a new opportunity for learning


You may not like the lessons


None are irrelevant


Life grants us the lesson in many ways until it is learned




WE  LEARN  INCREMENTALLY


Completion of a given task

reflects our capacity for understanding


The toddler learns not to touch what is hot


The child learns to tie its shoe laces, go to school, cross the road….


The teenager learns the effects of

abusing drugs and alcohol and of promiscuous sex


The adult learns to sustain relationships through mutual

cooperation and respect

SLOWLY

WE  ACCEPT  THE  TOOLS

WHICH  ALLOW  US  TO  COMPLETE  THE  TASK


TIME  KEEPING       DECISION  MAKING       COMMITMENT


We learn to

  1. Accept our failures by recognising our vulnerabilities
    Correct our mistakes without blaming others
    Contribute to the good of the whole
    Forgive ourselves and others

FINALLY

We learn to give unconditionally



ACHIEVING  COMPLETION


We can then lead others to the same truth

Mahatma Ghandi:  One World

Quotes from Mahatma Ghandi:


“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”


“A man is but the product of his thoughts, what he thinks, he becomes.”


“Be the change that you want to see in the world.”


“I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary;
the evil it does is permanent.”



“I think it would be a good idea”  (When asked what he thought of Western civilization)

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won.  There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall.  Think of it—always.”
