We are all one

CHARLES Darwin stipulated that man has reached an advanced, but imperfect, stage of development. The notion of imperfection is integral to his theory.

However, man / woman is perfect and always has been. This does not mean that we do not make mistakes or do wrong. But the only form of evolution is spiritual.

Moving from lifetime to lifetime, we evolve to discover that ultimate perfection. In part, this is done through practice in ethics. At that moment we realise individual identity is an illusion and that all are one. No one could then say “I am perfect” because no trace of self-consciousness would remain.

It would be interesting to read other people's opinion.
