Today I was watching my little son play with a foot ball. It did not have much air and it was damaged by being left out in all types of weather. But for a 2 year old boy it did not matter. It looked round. It could bounce, which meant all the definitions of a ball met for him. It kept him occupied for a long time.
For a mind with no or mild ego state it was a perfect ball that can be played with. It could not find any fault with it. If ego is taken out of your mind, most of the things in the world would be perfect as it is. Looking for perfection is the work of ego. It will create a lot of mental noise. Each human being have something unique in them. Our job is to find and make the best use of that uniqueness and not to exploit what we are not meant for.
If we look at our own imperfections, we create negative self judgment. It will take your confidence away. If we judge others imperfections, we will try to change them. It will take your happiness away. If you are being mindful you will notice that these imperfections don’t really matter anyway, and to be human is to be imperfect. Perfection is the job of the super power.
“If you look for perfection, you’ll never be content.” – Leo Tolstoy
