Mirage of Perfection

I believe these lines, though deep, wouldn’t need further explanation, as we all by now, know what mind is capable of doing, what man is capable of achieving!

Life’s not a bed of roses, situations aren’t always favorable, people aren’t always behaving according to our expectations. We’re surrounded by imperfections. Demanding perfection summons depression!

There are no perfect parents, children, spouses, jobs, relationships, communities or countries. You can not make every single person happy. Perfection is an inexistent concept. In the middle of hundred uncontrollable elements, there’s one element you can certainly control to some extent. We’re going to talk here only about the things we can control. And guess what could that be?

It’s your MIND, which is the source of all your thoughts, perceptions, and interpretations. Emotions are variables that depend on your thought process. You’re free to think as it pleases you! Why not think of any adverse instance from a positive aspect ? 😊

I cannot stress enough, how important it is today, to master your own mind, and not let your emotions overpower you. I believe each one of us by now, already know this. Consider this article as a gentle reminder.

You must be thinking “all this is easier said than done!”. That’s right! It’s definitely not a habit that you can develop overnight. It’s all a matter of regular practice and dedication! If I can do it, you can do it as well. I vouch for the results.

Excuse me for the brief but, a relevant digression. Coming back to “perfection”, please do not seek it anywhere. Not in your home, not in your people, not in the world, not even in yourself! Only God is perfect.

It’s a shadow you can never get hold of. Stop chasing it and you’ll realize you’re just too blessed!

Think right to feel right 😊❤

  1. Beautifully said and illustrated! We are in a world, in a continuous what appears to be conflict, where seemingly all things are seeking a balance, at least from the perspective of he who is contemplating what he sees before him!

    But upon realizing over time and with experience, wisdom does come, which points out an old Truth from He who provided all of this to start; that there is a true balance to be found for anyone out of this clamor and sometimes chaos; that will only come by getting to know Him! He is always awaiting our answer and cares more than we can comprehend being in our own incomplete state that we are in; we must grow from within to be made complete.

    This is where our greatest task and journey lies; within ourselves where He is speaking clearly if we will only listen and hear His voice! Amen.

    A lovely post, dear Ashi. Completely agree with you, my friend. Concepts abound, and we choose the ones we want to give power to. In the end, all concepts are illusions. Lovely, my friend. ❤✨

    Perfection it is surely not —- what we perceive, what we see, are just reflections off the mirrors in our mind…
