10. Do not search. That which is, is.
(Osho’s Tenth New Commandment)
Why do we run?
We run here and we run there trying to find the best deal, the best relationship, the best job. However, as we frantically scurry this way and that trying to find what we think is the best deal, the best relationship, or the best job we miss the true opportunities that lie before our eyes. Our eyes remain closed to the possibilities at hand. Our energy is taken in our search for what we already have in our hand, in our heart, and before our eyes because we unable to discern between what is best and what simply is.
Why do we run towards illusions?
As we run to what we think is the best of the best for us, we have our eyes and heart focused upon the wrong things…these are merely illusions of the best that are presented to us in the physical world. These are distractions of what is real, what is worthy of running towards and running after. These things are not the best, they are camouflaged by a veneer of untruths whose sole purpose is to divert your attention from what is real, what is worthy, what is.
The universe is perfect…it is what it is because is it perfection; it runs on universal timelessness, and it runs on a myriad of Natural Laws that are so precise, so exact, so unerring, that it has sustained itself by these same laws for billions of years. If the universe is perfect, then all space, things, and life within the universe are perfect…the parts are a perfect as the whole, it can be no other way. Imperfection cannot live within perfection…perfection cannot live within imperfection. Hence, all is perfect; and as such each person, animal, planet, and star that resides within a perfect universe is perfect.
Perfection is by design…not by chance, luck or fate
Since we are perfect, we must ask our Self…is it by chance, luck or fate that we are perfect. Perfection is innate in you, me, the eagle, the seashore, the sunlight…hence, it is perfection by design. The gears of the universe run as they do because they are designed to do so, and because they indicate design there must be a designer. A design is created by a designer for and to a purpose; thus, the purpose must reflect what is meant to be and why it is meant to be so.
It is perfect…it is as it is
There is no need to search; there is no need to run here and run there; and there is no need to fear what is…it is because it is meant to be, as such not to be searched for, run after, or feared from.
Accept the is
When you accept that what is, it is the best for you, it is the outcome, it is the reality…which is not masked by illusion or untruth. Ask not why it is, rather, flow along with the is as a river does on its way to the sea. The river never asks why it flows or where it flows to, that decision is made for it; thus, it focuses upon the is of the journey, the moment, the as it is, and not the end result.
