The Path We Walk

“Diseases can be our spiritual flat tires – disruptions in our lives that seem to be disasters at the time but end by redirecting our lives in a meaningful way.”

Perfectly Imperfect

How many of you were taught to strive for perfection or always to give 110%?  In theory this may encourage us to “be the best that we can be”, but does this factor in that we are human? Also what about the fact that if you give 110% on one endeavor you will be running on a deficit for awhile?  What I am getting at is that we regularly ask so much of ourselves in one part of our life that we are unable to fully be present in other areas of our life. Not surprisingly this leads us to feeling discontented and disappointed. Letting go of the illusion of perfection and understanding that it is through the imperfect aspects of life that we find true meaning is not an easy lesson.  It is something that we consistently have to revisit. I hope that the following words of wisdom will help.

“Seek always to progress rather than perfect” ~Taro Gold

“Only the idea of something is perfect. It’s expression in material, worldly terms is a mere shadow of that idea.” ~Plato

“Mistakes are the portals of discovery.” ~James Joyce

Wise words….

The art of living lies less in eliminating our troubles than in growing with them.

~ Bernard M. Baruch

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

~ James Joyce

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

~ Abraham Lincoln

Words that feed the soul…

Being a lifelong learner will keep life interesting and help guides us to understand the world and ourselves better.  When taking in new information always listen to your intuition for what FEELS true and what needs further investigation.

Rough Edges

I don’t believe that we can hold ourselves or another to a promise of being perfect. Even though we aspire to learn and grow, imperfections will continue to arise. All I can do is sincerely commit to learn from whatever I encounter along the way. Like stones in a stream that are smoothed over the years by the flowing torrent, I will dwell in the stream of life and invite it to smooth my rough edges.
