The Self is perfect. You are the Self, therefore, before conception you were perfect. So what happened after conception?
Thoughts of imperfection will manifest imperfection in the physical. This is clear to see as we look about the world witnessing disease, poverty & war etc both individually and collectively.
If man is not conscious of himself Spiritually then he must be creating these imperfect thoughts from the mental realm.
In other words he is acting from the mind instead of Spirit.
In allowing his mind to become still, the light of Spirit that man in truth is, will shine through the mind unimpeded by egoic thoughts that act like clouds blocking the sun.
Unthink yourself to purity. This is what this beautiful quote of Loa Tzu means.
