Look atPerfect Universe - The Broken Pot Story We live in a perfect universe, even if we perceive things as imperfect. From our frog perspective, we only see glimpses of a big picture. If we could see the whole from a higher perspective, we would realize that everything is perfectly balanced by the laws of the universe.

“The natural laws of the universe are so PRECISE that we do not have any difficulty building a spaceship, sending a person to the moon and we can time the landing with the precision of a fraction of a second.“-Dr. Warner Von Braun,

It is the beauty of creation, everything is tenderly balanced.
So tenderly you cannot disturb it. That shows the mastery of the Creator. – Jaggi Vasudev Sadhguru

 We live in a perfect universe

We, humans, are gods highest form of creation how can we be imperfect? It is our perception and lack of awareness, judgment, critic, attachment and not accepting and willingness to take the experience of life as it is.

We see ourselves as imperfect and do judge ourselves and others. We all have flaws but we can accept them or change them. Would it not be a boring life if everybody would be the same?  How could we learn and grow? We all have magic in our mind which we can use to live our full potential.

Here is a beautiful story which can remind us that we do not see all there is to see in this world. If we could oversee all from a higher perspective we would realize that we live in a perfect universe.

The Broken PotPerfect Universe - The Broken Pot Story

A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on an end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the master’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years, this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master’s house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect to the end for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do. After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream.

“I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you.”
“Why?” asked the bearer. “What are you ashamed of?”
“I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master’s house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value from your efforts.” the pot said.

The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion, he said, “As we return to the master’s house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path.”

Indeed, as they went up to the hill, the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wildflowers on the side of the path, and this cheered it some. But at the end of the trail, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half its load, and so again the Pot apologized to the bearer for its failure.

The bearer said to the pot, “Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of your path, but not on the other pot’s side? That’s because I have always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the stream, you’ve watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master’s table. Without you being just the way you are, he would not have this beauty to grace his house.”

We Live In A Perfect Universe

Each of us has unique flaws like the cracked pot, but we can all be useful, despite our flaws. We have just to accept ourselves for what we are.

Also, we can change our weakness to strength. There are many examples of seemingly weak people who changed it with awareness to strength and serve the world with this unique gift. Look at  Nick Vujicic or Sean Stephenson for example.
Or Einstein was a poor student, he was unable to speak fluently at age nine, his teachers thought he might be mentally ill. He was a dreamer.

Bruce Lee as well had a dream: “My dream is to be the world’s champion in karate and to be a very famous actor”. he said when his teacher asked.“The teacher looked at me and said: “Look at yourself, your body is weak and thin, you need to eat well before dreaming such a dream and second of all I asked you to answer me with a realistic dream and a not fictional one.”

We have just to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

In this perfect universe, everything has a reason.

My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
 Know that in our weakness your strength is made perfect. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
