Perfection (Listen while you read)
I ask myself: “How can one achieve perfection?”
The answer is simple, my dear. To achieve perfection one must have, as one’s greatest desire:
To achieve what many believe is impossible.
When your conviction is that great, your desires will begin to be evidenced in your behaviour.
I ask myself: “What is perfection?”
Perfection, my dear, is anything other than boredom.
“And what is boredom?”
Why boredom, my dear one, is anything other than perfection.
“Is perfection a state of happiness?”
That would be to diminish it, dear heart.
Indeed, dear heart, diminish it. Perfection is a state of consciousness whereby all is known, all is embraced.
“All is known, all is embraced?”
Yes, dear heart. We become perfect when we can clearly see the good, and the not so good as equal. That is, dear heart; to not be altered by either those things we perceive to be good, or those things we perceive to be bad.
Indeed, dear heart; untouched by the emotions of right and wrong, good and bad; remaining the observer, dearest one; remaining unaffected.
“And how do we obtain this state of being ‘unaffected’?”
Trial and error, dear heart; trial and error.
Indeed, dearest; hard work to be sure.
