Imperfection is generally seen as something to avoid. We prize perfection and strive for it in all things. However, I believe the process of creation itself, which is inherent in every moment of existence, requires imperfection (or rather, it requires what we think of as imperfection). For anything new to come about, something old must be re-made. Nothing can really be created or destroyed, since everything is energy and energy cannot be created or destroyed; however it can become something new from something old, and such is the process of creation. Take grapes, in their pure and perfect form, then allow them to ferment – as they ferment they move through imperfect form, and something new is created – wine. All the universe is made of various forms moving through imperfection, back to perfection, to re-birth and new form. In the end, the label of perfection and imperfection is perspective. All is sacred, in whatever form it is in at the moment. You are not imperfect, you are a work in progress, but you are always a work in progress, and so is everything and everyone else. There is no end point, there is only the journey itself of creation and moving through form. The labels of perfection and imperfection therefore are simply judgments we make when looking at something at one point in its overall journey of creation. If we back up from judgment and instead see the whole process, then we see there is always an inherent perfection within it. Where you are and who you are at this moment is exactly where and who you are meant to be right now. Thus, love and accept the form you have now, and continue to love it as it transforms before your eyes through every season of life. Your sacredness and perfection have never been diminished.
Love and Light,
