Perfection and the “complete whole body”

Perfection

There is such a thing as perfection. It needs to be placed beyond our self. We are not to be perfect (nor complete; we may be true as a projected part).

Perfection may be placed as reference, goal and direction for us, with the whole body in alignment with gravity or the “complete whole body”.

Statues of deities, gods, rulers, and heroes are depicted in their physical splendour, and placed on a platform and roofed often with a ceiling. There is a yogic perfection of the human form and front facing structure (in gravity), worthy I think of a structure and frame to set it. I have admired statues of the Buddha under ceilings and on platforms that reciprocate and reinforce the statue’s front facing “completeness”.

To me the CNS (Central nervous system), in its levelled, front facing and vertical float, epitomises the perfection of its whole, evolutionally and in state and structure. The CNS also assures our part as a projected part of our whole self (Part theory).

Glorification of the human form and image may be questioned, as any suggestion or reference to perfection, lest it feed our struggles against and fears of failure, and our identification with our image of self. Yet, in his or her complete and full extent and being, is perfection.

There is such a thing as perfection. It needs to be placed beyond our self. We are not to be perfect (nor complete; we maybe true as a projected part). However, perfection maybe placed as a reference, goal and direction for us, with the whole body in alignment with gravity or the “complete whole body”. We must understand our part.

Definitions

– Whole body

The whole body is the creator of our (partial; see Part theory) reality. The whole being and our whole self, he or she is unique to our individual self because that whole body is our creator and projects in space our individual reality including our self. Projection is our actuality – what we are or what we exist as. As projection, in our actuality, we with our reality are a part of our whole.

The whole body is alive in creation. He or she includes the solid body and our projected part, both in reality as parts of a whole being of reality. From within projection the whole body disappears with the rest of creation. He or she is Nothingness, the absence of the whole body from within projection. Emptiness is the disassociation through which we are having an experience and the displacement within projection between the components of our construct or make-up (for having an experience).

– Complete whole body

The whole body in alignment with gravity, level and front facing through his or her vertical extent.

– Part theory
We with our reality are a projected part of our whole, created by a whole being who is our whole self, and placed or projected in space through his or her CNS (Central nervous system). We may be captured in our incomplete (and so partial) part as projection, and as projected actuality (existence as) and part, we may be in relation with our whole.

Where to look

I like Alan Watts, the serenity of spirituality and I am strongly influenced by Zen. And I feel humanity must clarify its reality to establish the truth, of us as identity being a projected part of the whole self or whole body in creation, in reality.

Our here and now, and our self are witnessed. Our self, our experience of notion and sense including our here and now, the conscious and the witness, as well as our deeper being, are projected parts of our whole – created and placed by the whole self, whole being or whole body from his or her nervous system. The whole body is alive in creation, present in the present, solid in gravity, and amongst other whole entities on Earth. We tend to identify with our self and our reality of experience, in isolation from a possible relation with our whole. In our actuality, inclusive of our witness, we may relate with the whole self, who does not appear or “show himself” in our projected reality or in front of the witness.

Yes, we as the self or identity “seek perfection”, but it is the whole body or whole self who is complete in creation and projects our all, our isolation from as well as our relation with our whole. With integrated parts, he or she may be perfect as well in his or her godliness in creation.

A similar thought to that seen in the last two posts, but this time from the Western tradition, showing a corresponding understanding of the need to stay in the present moment and not in some thought about how an ideal life or an ideal day should be.

You seek perfection, but it lies in everything that happens to you.

Setbacks, actions and impulses  are the mysteries under which God reveals himself to you.

He will never show himself in the shape of that exalted image to which you are attracted to.

Jean Pierre de Caussade, 1675 – 1751, a French jesuit,  whose ideas Alan Watts compared to ones found in Zen Buddhism.
