3. Everything is perfect… there is nothing wrong. We get back what we have created with our thoughts, words and acts..
The second part of that paragraph (starting with ‘there is nothing wrong…’) is only a partial answer, pertaining to the mundane, transactional life, but it encapsulates a truth: ‘what we have created with our thoughts, etc. ‘. The first part is the higher view or understanding: ‘the Real is perfect, full’. In ‘this life’ everything is relative (mithya), it is not the complete picture; rather, it is a distorted one, allowing for division and (thus) suffering; everything is ‘other’ than everything else – a world of multiplicity and illusion. Nothing better than reproducing here the words of the greatest Indian philosopher, Shankara:
May this sentence proclaim the essence of a thousand books: Brahman alone [the Absolute, unnameable, attributeless] is real, the world is appearance, the Self is nothing but Brahman.
