Does it bring you Peace to seek perfection in something? In some circumstances going for the finest detail can be a meditation which brings Peace. In many situations, it is a stressful approach to attempt control which is not possible. You can choose to meditate on the details or let them go.
Ascended Master Kuthumi via Dawn Katar.
There was a time when I was nick-named ‘Mr One Hundred Percent’ insisting on the best job possible and at the same time never giving a job to anyone else that I could not successfully complete myself. Probably due to my Engineering Training, and there is an element of that same feeling in much of what I do today.
Since today I still insist on pictures lining up along the wall, to the nearest millimetre, and even have a laser operated levelling device to achieve that result much to the frustration of others who do not see the point. Being a visual sort of chap though, form and colour combinations are important to me and I can lose myself in those meditative endeavours.
But I also understand the alternative view expressed by Kuthumi which was brought on by having to sort through the bargain rail and never wanting to buy a new car because of the first year’s depreciation! There is also an element of ego in there as well, priding myself on being able to make do and mend, whether it be in the garage, garden or kitchen. There is happiness in making something out of nothing. Don’t you find?
In truth of course there is no such thing as perfection. And Nature teaches us the endless probabilities that exist for us to achieve. None of which has within it the goal of perfection. You will count yourself lucky, no doubt, if you ever finish!
Do you believe that God is perfect?
By what standard is that perfection measured?
In a perfect Universe there is no room for growth or expansion into something better, greater or more wonderful. It is better in my view to see life, the Universe and God in a constant state, in the infinite potential of probabilities, to be in a continual quest of becoming. Why should not the same criteria apply to us that would then give us the multitude of possibilities to pursue in our multidimensional expression of life or lives as we live them side by side.
