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.

Burden free

When we place expectation on ourselves and others, we place a burden and the greater the expectation, the greater the burden and the greater the disappointment for us when we or others do not meet the expected level.

Equally, when we do something with a motive attached, say we open the door solely to look good and then expect a ‘thank you’ only to be disappointed by not getting it. We do things with strings attached.

If we act from our soul, from our feelings, and we simply be, then we suffer no burden within or disappointment. We equally spare the burden for others too. If we set no expectation of ourselves and others, we are free.

Just doing what we feel without anything attached is the best way to enjoy a guilt, an expectation and a burden-free life.
