The Life of Pi

In the story the Life of Pi,  Pi gets alarmingly close to a tiger when his father pulls him away from the cage. Pi argues that on staring at the creature’s eye, he saw the soul. But his father angrily replies that Pi only saw a reflection of his own soul.

What do we actually see in the world? Is there any meaning in the daily occurrences? In the Tip of the Writing Brush, it is said that the world is a reflection of our minds. What occurs daily is a reflection of the world’s mind.

The innermost heart of everyone in the world is all reflected to God. 8-12

I shall teach you step by step that this world is the body of God. Ponder, and look at it. 3-40

If we believe that the daily occurrences are a result of our thoughts and actions, then if we were to remove evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) from our minds, then we will only have joy in the future. On the other hand, if we continue to treat others poorly, then the sufferings in the world will continue.

In summary, the health of the world is dependent on our minds. The body of God is the world. Remove evils from your hearts to make God whole and spirited. When this happens, there will be only joy in the world with everyone helping each other.
