Do you ever notice how we like to secretly pretend there is a perfect world just out of our reach? You know….that world where no one is suppose to make mistakes? Yes, that’s the one!….the place where misunderstandings never occur, and pain doesn’t monopolize the power to break our fragile hearts. Doesn’t it feel good to believe this world exists? Don’t we enjoy concluding it is a reasonable option by default? On a particlarly challenging day, we could even be convinced it has achieved “#goalstatus.”
Wow! This place sounds amazing! How about we take a trip there together right now?
In a perfect world, you would be completely fufilled and so would everyone around you. In a perfect world, there would be no criteria that wasn’t met. In a perfect world, you would already have completed every task you created for yourself so nothing would be unfinished. Your state of perfection would keep you from making choices that brought you anything but happiness and joy. All of life would mirror your eternal state of divinity. Everywhere you looked you would see an unquestioning reflection of you staring back at you in total agreement and acceptance of What Is.
The end of conflict would settle into your awareness and invite you to exude a peaceful calming demeanor. There would be no more need for negotiations because everyone would simply agree. Resolutions would cease to be created because there would be no problems. You see, everything would simply be perfect as it is, and require no further complication or contemplation.
You would have to retire your righteousness because no one, including yourself, would argue that you are wrong. All of your personal opinions and observations would be honored, respected, accepted, and celebrated as a unique expression of the divine.
What would perfection teach you about who you are and why you are here? What power would it grant you over your life? In your perfect world, what becomes of your purpose? Which decisions could survive your approval? When anything is possible, how do you limit yourself to a single creation? What can possibly be worthy of your time and energy when you are in a state of absolute perfection?
Dare we dream of owning imperfection? Dare we muddle through the unknown with a curious mind, feeling heart, and perishable body? Dare we embody exactly who we are….human, failing, scared, small, trembling at the enormity of everything we will never understand???? Can we dare to consider questioning our carefully crafted ideals of perfection and replace them with the stunning obvious beauty of what and where we are now in this moment? Is that possibility ever going to be enough for us? Are WE ever going to be enough for US?
When you realize the world has already been created, and you are not here to save it from anyone but yourself, you will be free. Then you can actively participate in the mastery of creation itself. The power of creation dwells in the potency of a question, not exclusively in the singularity of an answer. Our full potential will never be met… that was never the objective. Don’t you see? Your soul just wanted a chance to dance with the mystery because it is already secure with the truth of it’s own divine perfection.
Life is all about the Quest-ion….
What will yours be?
