Perfection is not something for which we need to strive. Inner perfection is possible for every one of us—no matter what age, color, nationality or level of education. It is a living experience that we can nurture and intensify when we stretch our wings to fly a little higher.
In fact, most of the time we get confused about the word ‘perfection’ because we immediately link it to our outcomes. For example, we often say - “I didn’t do this task, therefore, I am not perfect.” “I failed at producing a desired result, therefore, I am not perfect.” “I don’t like cleaning and as a result my house is messy, and therefore, I am not perfect.”
All of those actions mentioned above are related to “doing.” However, perfection is not a state of “Doing” – it is a state of “Being.” And everything you ‘do’ originates from your state of “Being.”
By continuously repeating to your subconscious that you are imperfect, you will eventually damage your ‘state of Being,’ which will have a direct and negative impact on your state of mind, your overall happiness, inner peace, and inner power. And on top of it – what do you think will happen to your outcomes?
We are the “creatures” of creation. As human beings we can’t create (desired outcomes) from a state of imperfection.
How do we directly experience our perfection, hidden as it is, within everyday appearances?
AWAKEN TO YOUR TRUE IDENTITY
All caught up in the same empty routines we mistake for “reality,” we easily lose touch with who we truly are. Stop! You are not an ant, so there is no reason to trek up and down the same path in a boring line when you can simply step aside, lift your head, and smell the roses. In other words, awaken from your unconscious patterns and reconnect with your Intelligence.
CHOOSE TO BE THE AUTHENTIC YOU
Be you because everyone else is taken. There is no need to worry about the outer world when the inner world is solid. You are perfect, just as you are. You can experience and radiate perfection only by being yourself. On top of it, practice being present and being real because this will unlock the power within you to attract the same caliber people as well as generate thrilling opportunities in your life. It means surrounding yourself with more meaningful and happier relationships that simultaneously can lead to stunning breakthroughs.
FIND THE BALANCE BETWEEN “Doing” and “Being”
Most of us get caught in the ‘universe of doing’ and are preoccupied with survival. Both of the universes are equally important and so finding that fine balance between doing and the being will allow you to tap back into your core and fulfill your goals.
GET BACK TO PLAY!
Our perceptions of reality sometimes remove us from the sense of play. Our creation lies in our very imagination and that has no limitation because we are not doing it alone. Infinite Intelligence is manifesting itself through every one of us while playing each role and experiencing it all. It is time you start playing all over again. Play throughout the day. Play while working on any project or chore. This will, not only improve the outcome, but it will also boost your imagination and creativity and fill you with vital energy.
FIND YOUR MEANING and YOUR PURPOSE
The meaning in life lies in our purpose. The first question you should ask yourself is, “What would I live and die for?” Is it your family, your dreams, or some higher cause? You must find that out because it will ignite the fire within you. (And if you can’t locate it initially – begin celebrating life for what it is!)
LET GO OF YOUR MIND
We tend to live in our minds and forget our bodies. Our bodies energize our minds. Tune into your body, notice the energy level you are at, and work on raising the bar or moving up your chakras. The higher you go, the more you’ll recharge and the faster you’ll calm your mind. Use whatever path works for you—walk in the woods, go for a run, do yoga, play hockey, or meditate.
LET FEAR DISAPPEAR
Fear should not stop you from moving forward. Instead, it should challenge you. Keep in mind, the monsters are not under the bed—they are in your head. Once you start playing with your monsters and demonstrating your commitment to the game, they’ll disappear. Show your commitment, get out of the way and trust the whole process.
DON'T SUPPRESS YOUR FEELINGS
Our feelings give depth and dimension to life. Without contrast, life would be utterly flat. Even negative emotions can be beautiful when consciously experienced. Don’t suppress your feelings and let them all out. Only then will you be able to transform it.
LEARN TO FORGIVE FAST
The world is your mirror, and everyone you meet along the way is just another version of your Self. Practice staying away from the game of judgment and evaluation. It doesn’t add value to anyone. When we forgive others, we are actually forgiving and empowering ourselves, because we let go of all the negative energy trapped within our bodies.
TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR CREATION
As you welcome any and every possibility, you begin to realize that who you are is truly unlimited. You are not confined to your body. According to recent quantum theory in the field of physics, nothing is really solid out there in the Universe. Your consciousness is continuously creating and changing reality. Now, as you switch off your old perception of reality, remind yourself of this hidden power as often as possible. No need to blame the “world out there.” Start taking charge of your daily creation. We were created to create.
Life is a delightful process of going in and out of the realization of perfection much as if we were chasing an elusive butterfly with tattered nets. The further along we go, the more conscious we become, and the more frequent the moments of peak experiences. This path leads to a transformational shift in identity. Then it all seems worthwhile, and celebration of life, along with every moment, becomes second nature.
