Excerpt About Completeness
Being Thoroughly SereneTo be complete means to be thoroughly serene, totally, completely in repose, so much in repose that pleasure and pain come and go, but are irrelevant, surface phenomena. To be complete means you are not interested in things being any particular way. If you're complete, why would you have an interest in anything? You are not interested in getting; you're not interested in giving. There is just no interest. You are not interested in pleasure; you're not interested in pain. You don't reject or oppose pain if it comes; you don't even prefer its absence. To be interested means to move out of your repose; it means you have a need, and therefore are not complete. The completeness is the absence or end of interest, in the sense of preference.
