Life Examples are Examples of Imperfections
A person can think of a masterful painting by a renowned person or even visualise the tallest building of signs of perfection.
He can then say to himself that a high performance car or motor cycles are further signs of perfection.
We can then make a list of manmade things, objects and label them as man's greatest inventions. In theory it is quite true but can you make another list from nature and do the comparison.
Perhaps, the list would include a flower or many others flowers. Or even a tree or the design of the bark on it. Your list could include the intricate design of a mountain and its patterned surface; the beautiful but different designs of coral in the sea.
The list could then include species of animals, like the elephant.
This leads us to a conclusion that material things after a certain period need replacing as they soon decay or breakdown. Eventually even a painting without care will soon decay away. Even metal like everything else will go to dust.
If we compare a single flower and its design; it is perfect in everyway and no man could ever copy this. A mountain could never be perfected and has never been closely detailed by any person; he simply does not have the knowledge.
Nature's examples are from a many list of creations by the Divine light and spark we call God. He with His Will fashioned everything to its perfection that no person could ever emulate.
Examples of life are only man's efforts but if he were to use his spiritual knowledge then he will able to understand the might and power of energies manifesting into each creation. Without His aid man can never create even an ant.
The dormant 90% of the spiritual mind hold the keys to all answers and wisdom of knowledge that fully activate when we hold the trust of the Creator. Only then he is able to fashion whatever he wishes.
Each spiritual journey we learn the truths of each knowledge, at the same time gaining the Divine trust from the Lord. Without this we will not be taught but left to toil on our own in our travels.
Mankind’s own lists of perfections are the steps of learning that inspire the best into perfecting himself. Only then he is able to see true perfections.
Your mother; gaining trust from the Creator, will lead to many revelations into the spiritual mind.
