Perfection and Imperfection

This post will not be long… and when i say it will not be long is just comes down to this…

Perfection does not exist when individual expectation come up… Perfection exists when everything is seen right here-now. Even the imperfection that can be seen in the here-now is perfection at it’s imperfections.

Don’t waste time thinking about making something perfect at in the future… but rather be here-now, that is the only time things fall into place through perfection, whatever this word actually means is indescribable, but i hope that the pointer covey’s something deeper to the reader.

    Hey, Nick !

    A quick question, if you will… (not sure I should ask, but hey)

    Do you happen to know how one can detach themselves from their chores, par example? Or how detachment in general can be obtained?

  2. mmm…

    hey lizzy,

    glad of you to stop by!

    Detachment… you are speaking of… well forgetting past memory of a task that has a place in the past. The reason why chores get on peoples nerves most of the time, is because they are associating their past experience with that chore, and then projecting it into the future of how long its going to take… and when the mind projects into the future, it turns that task into an eternity, suuuch a long time to finish it…

    Best way to detach from a chore is to be present with the chore, to fully be in the chore, to see fully what you’re doing in the chore. Literally it becomes being that chore itself, there is no one to project a future or past to it, it is just doing what it does, there is only the experience experiencing itself. When you are in the chore it no longer becomes about reaching some means or goal, and goals have to due with some mean of future. Stay as present as possible, when the mind isn’t fantasizing, it isn’t troubled. It’s a pretty simple concept yet we are all caught up in our own individual world that we forget to be present.

    I think i also have a few blogs about detachment, but im not too sure lol… I hope this helps some (or maybe it won’t) but let me know if you need elaboration on some parts and i’ll see if i can help! 🙂 ❤

    Hey Liz and Nick,

    Sometimes what comes up in this present moment (always in this present moment) is when I find yet another pair of dirty socks my husband has left on the floor, annoyance arises.

    Maybe changing what is with thought manipulation isn’t the goal. Maybe not being detached from the chore is just fine. Maybe there’s nothing wrong with those feelings of frustration. Maybe detachment itself is not desirable.

    Or maybe, if detachment is what is happening, that’s just fine too!

  4. mmhmm! Thanks Suzanne,

    Both are very good, as they both arise in consciousness, neither of them are separate from it, in fact consciousness is the only thing that there is so both are fine, and whether or not the feeling is there or not is indeed okay.

    Its a pleasure seeing you seemingly here. ;] Saying something but not saying anything at all… The sound of one hand clapping?…mmm…

    This definitely did convey something deeper to me. I was thinking about the meaning of the word “perfection” as well while reading this, and I think is means lack of want, being content with what is–which, like you said, means not having expectations. So perfection is *never* what something is, but a perception or state of mind projected by an individual.

  8. @Suzanne haha, the sound of one hand ironing indeed! Kwan!

    @Lizzy, you bet sweetheart!

    @Christine, I’m glad that you were able to get something out of it and I thank you for adding to it, the christine flavor we’ll call it. ❤

  9. Hi Liberated Self! Bless you!Thank you for your interesting post. Your blog came up after I wrote a piece about Perfection and Failure. I truly believe that as long as we live perfection and failure do not exist. Feel free to take a look as to why. Cheers to you and ENJOY: http://xianforbeauty.wordpress.com/
