IMPERFECTION IS THE TOOL BY WHICH WE PERFECT OURSELVES

I recently reviewed a series of about thirty statements I wrote down about 10 years ago. 

The only one that still resonated was the one in the title  imperfection is the tool by which our soul perfects itself.   We are imperfect beings.

We know this truth all too well. In fact we spend most of our lives either denying this truth to our own detriment (ie failing to address our faults and mistakes) or over dramatizing them ( ie beating ourselves up for them).  Perhaps the middle way is THE way to go.  Deluding ourselves about our failings will keep us stuck where we are. Drowning in self-pity and excessive self-criticism will keep us tethered to where we are. 

 We need to realize that we have incarnated BECAUSE we are unfinished “business”.  This lifetime is the opportunity to do better.  That’s the message. Now go out and live it.
