I generally spend my days lately trying to solve problems, get ahead, and pretty much view everything as being in the way of what I’m trying to do. There’s always something out of place. Always someone doing something stupid. Phone ringing during my meditation. Thoughts of depression. Email I forgot to send. Money that’s not there. Whatever. It’s really hard for me to feel like everything is ok. In fact, I often like to remind myself everything is not ok, just to feel better about everything not being ok by at least being aware of all the problems. It means I care. There’s so much resistance right now to feeling ok that it all feels like a mess.
So i decided to make a month of perfection. What if the mess is perfect? What if my anger is perfect. What if everything out of place is perfect. Not that things don’t have to get done, or things need to be dealt with, but that it’s perfect that it’s all there. It’s not a mistake, or in the way of some other life.
Of course as soon as I decided this I woke up to my bicycle tire having been stolen. How perfect. I didn’t sign in early enough to an online course for business growth and had to wait. How perfect. It’s so hard not to feel the self animosity that arises when I fall short of the where I think I should be, and what I think should be happening.
Will you join me for 30 days of perfection? Simply taking the time each day to recognize the challenges you face as perfect. What If everything was the perfect challenge? The perfect emotion. The perfect place to be and find life in. To feel what needs to be felt, and to move and grow and be nourished by whatever is there.
