Perfect Life

“Perfect? One hundred percent perfect is difficult,” said the Dalai Lama. “But I think I can say, among 7 billion human beings, everyone has the potential for good quality. This is the most precious thing. If you keep affection, a sense of concern for others’ well being, that’s the ultimate source of satisfaction. That brings peace of mind."

Be Happy

“There is a Tibetan saying: ‘When things are difficult, then let yourself be happy.’ Otherwise, if happiness is relying on others or the environment or your surroundings, it’s not possible. Like an ocean, the waves always go like that but underneath, it always remains calm. So we have the ability as well. On an intellectual level, we may see things as desperate, difficult. But underneath, at the emotional level, you can keep calm.”

I love this post, as it reminds me of the possibilities life provides us. I believe that we are born perfect. So-called "perfectionism," in my opinion, is the drive for flawlessness. But, we will never be without flaws. Because we are flawed, we are perfect. When we bleed, our blood clots. When we are tired, we sleep. When we are hungry, we eat. We are, indeed, a system that function according to our design, I call that "perfection." We are prefect because we are flawed. The futility of all attempts for flawlessness are met with frustration. Frustration is the human body's built-in reminder that we are finite, flawed but beautiful, beings who need not run from who are.
