你們「物質生活的外在環境」並不需要與你們「靈性生活的內在經驗」有任何關係。你們並不需要沒有 ( 肉體的) 痛苦才能免於 ( 心裡的) 受罪。在你們的生活中，並不一定要沒有破裂崩潰，才能得到平安。
這種內在的平和(inner peace)是所有生靈所追求的，因為它是所有生靈所是的本質 (the essence of what all beings are) 。而你們永遠會尋求「你們真正是誰」的體驗。
我已經跟你們說過許多次了，現在我要再跟你們說一遍：生命的一切都是一種禮物，一切都是完美的——是為了在你之內、做為你，並經由你表達完美本身之完美機會的完美工具。 (All of Life is a gift, and all is perfection---the perfect tool with which to create the perfect opportunity for the perfect expression of perfection itself, in, as, and through you.)
The exterior circumstances of your physical life need not have anything to do with the interior experience of your spiritual life. It is not necessary for you to be pain-free in order to be free of suffering. It is not necessary for there to be a lack of disruption in your life for there to be peace.
Indeed, true Masters experience peace in the face of disruption and conflict, not because they have found a way to avoid it.
This inner peace is what all beings seek, because it is the essence of what all beings are. And you will always seek the experience of Who You Really Are.
You may achieve this inner peace in the face of any exterior condition or circumstance simply by understanding that you are not your body, and that nothing you see is real.
Remember that you are living The Ten Illusions. And then understand the truth about those Illusions that you created them, and all the little illusions beneath them, so that you might decide and declare, express and experience, become and fulfill Who You Really Are.
I have said to you many times before, and I will say to you again: All of Life is a gift, and all is perfection—the perfect tool with which to create the perfect opportunity for the perfect expression of perfection itself, in, as, and through you.
