The Nothingness Of Perfection

We think Perfection eludes us, so we set our own standards for perfection. We value those standards and considered the people that achieve that perfection above average, gifted, and special. Our version of perfection is flawlessness. We want to be free from the shackles of humanity, and our perfect standards provide a sense of release. Our quest for perfection gives us meaning, a bar to climb over, a mission to accomplish, and the feeling of achievement. It gives us movement, and our standard of perfection is always moving. Identifying perfection is easy when that perfection is measured objectively. Measuring perfection with the religious version of perfection erases our accomplishments and that version brings us back to the unworthiness that surrounds our belief system.

The old saying that “no one is perfect” is based on our old belief system. That saying should be, “Perfect in the action of consciousness.” Perfect means finished, final, the ultimate and the complete. But as we expand through this world we realize that nothing is final or complete. There is always something else that compliments, touches, or influences our thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and perceptions. There is always something else that moves, grows or metastasizes into another choice or perception. The universe moves and expands in its perfection, the plant and animal kingdoms expand in their perfection, and our thoughts expand in our perfection. Perfection is consciousness. Our ever-expanding consciousness holds everything in the nothingness of perfection.
