The Proof is in the Perfection: 5 Steps to Accepting That It’s All Perfect!

March 18, 2012

If your mind’s anything like my mind, it’s pretty dang sure that it knows exactly how things should go, and what perfection looks like. Often, when life decides to take a different direction, my mind tries to talk me into feeling agitated, frustrated, defeated, disappointed, and a variety of other feelings out of alignment with love. My mind prefers to strive for perfect so much so that I have found myself delaying taking action until I felt as if I could do things perfectly, or out of fear of not being perfect. Even more so, this perfection paralysis has even kept me from ever taking actions on some things altogether. Along the way, I have learned that perfection is just another form procrastination that’s often seemingly justified and a super sneaky way for my mind to simply keep me safe and alive—interestingly enough, even from things that are not attacking me or even an actual threat to my survival.

Intrigued as always when I come across commonly used words that’s meaning seem to represent something positive, yet evoke a mixed response from me, I decided to get to the root of the word perfect to see what perfection is truly about. What I found was: “completed,” “accomplish, finish, complete,” and “to perform.” How interesting. In my past, striving for perfection kept me from taking action on the things I was working to make or do perfect, and all along, perfect simply means to complete, accomplish, finish, and to perform…simply to take action. Much like I found at the root of success (result or outcome), perfection occurs in taking action. All action, any action, is therefore perfect. Proof even further that we are fully equipped, destined to succeed and perfection by design.

To take the word perfect even one step further, along with the above mentioned root meanings, I also found: “see factitious,” which root meaning is: “artificial.” If you are looking beyond the natural perfection that Life/God/the Universe is offering, expecting more or that it should look the way your mind tells you it should, this idea of perfection that alters from what is right before your eyes, this is a factitious—artificial—idea. A fantasy created by the mind, as an attempt to predict the future, simply to ensure your survival.

The bad news is many of us live our lives this way subconsciously, creating struggle and dis-ease—emotionally & physically. The good news is everything—including and especially you—is perfect. It’s handled, and not your responsibility. Your only responsibility is to:

 

  1. Own your perfection
  2. Surrender what your mind is telling you life should be like
  3. Have faith in the divine perfection you are completely submersed in & completely are
  4. Take action on what makes your heart sing
  5. Look for the perfection/Love, because it’s always present, even if it doesn’t appear to be
