Perfection, who needs it?

We are conditioned to seek perfection in all that we do and are.

Yet, perfection is not interesting and the things we love the most in life are the imperfections in things and people. Imperfect is human, is nature, is life.

When we reach perfection, it is only fleeting, because someone or something else will always be more perfect.

It is our ego and the mind that pushes us to hide behind perfection, we can use it as an excuse to avoid being who we truly are or doing what brings us joy. The mind will sabotage and say ‘it’s not good enough, it’s not perfect…just don’t bother’.

Imperfectly enjoy life.

Forget about the cracks

Perfect can never be, as in order for it to be so would mean the end of everything.

Once perfection is reached, it can always be improved upon, so only ending everything would that level of ‘perfect’ remain. Otherwise, perfection is a momentary and subjective thing.

In order for anything to be it has to have the opposite, the Yin and Yang, to exist. So for there to be perfect there has to be imperfection.

The thing is, perfect does not matter. It is just a way of our mind creating an excuse for not doing something, we can hide behind perfection not doing something to avoid being judged as to our perfection. Equally, imperfection does not matter either, it is only a tool of judging.

Let go of perfect or imperfect and enjoy just doing, just living, just being. Forget about the cracks.
