“A well-spent day brings happy sleep.” ~Leonardo DaVinci
To me a day well-spent is a day where every little detail is handled to perfection or as close to it as possible. Rather than starting the day under the weight and shadow of the mantra “nobody’s perfect” why not open the day with a mind and heart open to at least the possibility of perfection revealing itself at various points through the day?
Perfection is possible. It is not normally revealed for many reasons, but perhaps the greatest cause is the lack of purity of heart. A pure heart is a heart free of hatred, envy, disdain, and other such destructive attitudes. Whether you call them evil spirits, bad attitudes or low vibrational elements, they are invariably destructive when given residence in the human heart. Eschew these attitudes and the expression of perfection will be within reach.
Perfection often comes as the result of practice, but in another sense it is immediately at hand. Spend any time with a newborn baby, for instance, and you must admit that perfection is somehow a natural expression, resident in each one. Spend a few hours in an pristine natural setting and you will no doubt marvel at the perfection inherent in the natural world.
One of the greatest impediments to perfection is the foregone conclusion that perfection is not possible. The idea that “nobody’s perfect” has stopped millions of people from ever making room in their hearts and minds for the possibility of the revelation of perfection in and through themselves or by way of others.
Perfection is at hand. If you are convinced that you cannot be perfect you will likely never reveal perfection. If you do not think that perfection is possible, you will likely dismiss the evidence of perfection in expression through others as a fluke. If you delve deep enough into the belief that nobody’s perfect, you will be forced, as many have in the past, to destroy the evidence of perfection to protect your belief.
Dare to embrace perfection. Be kind to yourself and others if you come up short. Avoid self-righteousness at all costs if you hit the mark. Don’t rest on your laurels if you hit the perfect shot, say the perfect word, make the perfect move or reveal perfect timing on an isolated basis. Perfection is available to you, to me, and the world would be a different place if more people were to actually believe in the possibility of its revelation, here and now.
“Be ye therefore perfect” is not some cruel commandment, vain hope or impossible dream. Perfection is possible. Perfection is at hand.
