If there’s ever going to be assistance to others, there will be a need to stop trying to make ourselves perfect by understanding the only perfection one will ever experience is the perfection of love.
The point to life isn’t to be perfect, it’s to be perfectly of love. It’s only through love that true perfection can be known, but it isn’t our perfection, it’s the perfection of love. So much time and energy is put towards trying to perfect ourselves by making life fit into some master plan devised by the Conditioned Mind. We go to the gym, eat healthy, attend church, volunteer at shelters and what not, meditate, do yoga and so on, but are these being done for the perfection of our self or to perfect our ability to love? There’s nothing wrong with any of the things mentioned above, but what matters is why they’re being done. If it’s to perfect ourselves, something will always be needed to be done because our perfection will never be, but not for any other reason except that we are human.
If it’s our yearning to perfect our love then it puts us in direct alignment with ourselves, and the Universe, this allows our energy to be directed towards its intended purpose to love. It will be at this time that perfection will be forth coming in our life and thus it will be propelled into the lives of others, but this perfection isn’t ours, it’s the Universes and it manifest as love. As humans we can only be as we’re conditioned with all the imperfections that are associated with it and as imperfect as one may be, acceptance that life is perfect as it is has to be if there’s to be true assistance to others. If it isn’t the conditioning just gets more deeply embedded in one’s subconscious and tightens it grips.
This is a grave misgiving because it keeps one entrapped to a life of much suffering, some of it subtle and not to harmful and some of it very harmful with dire consequences, but either way to be entrapped to something is to be entrapped to the suffering of what one is entrapped to; not my truth, the truth of the Conditioned Mind. Breaking free of this is essential to be of assistance to others because when one is in bondage to self, there’s isn’t any room for others and without others the perfection of love will never manifest.
