Spiritual Musings, Creative Inspiration, and Simple Vegan Recipes

You are already Perfect


“When we are in trance and caught in an emotion like fear or shame or anger, our inner intelligence knows something is off kilter. For a while, perhaps even decades, we may mistakenly think that “something is wrong with me” or “something is wrong with the world,” that we need to fix our imperfections and somehow prevent ourselves from failing. Then either suddenly or gradually we recognize that it is our mistaken perception of who we are that’s causing the difficulty.” – True Refuge (Tara Brach)

There is nothing “wrong” with you, or with the world. No need to fix yourself, just awaken to your True Self.

How will you awaken to your True Self today?

Tear off the expectations of yourself, from others, and from within.

Recognize that who you truly are is already perfect, divine, and never separated from the heartbeat of the universe.

  1. The word “perfect” has several meanings. In biology the word is often used to mean “complete” as in having all that is needed. It does not mean without blemish nor does it mean devaiton from a specified norm or standard. Thinking of perfection as completeness allows us to see far more perfection in our world.

    • I remember having this conversation with you in the mountains. And it truly does change the meaning. Our idea of perfect is usually something from the outside, not an understanding of completion from within. I hope we talk more about this!
