If we were perfect we would be no different from God, because God in various manifestations is still the ultimate model of perfection. One can’t go any higher than that. This teaches us to try and be the best we can – but also reminds us not to go too far because at a point we will just work ourselves out, trying to attain what we believe is perfection. But in reality we are just taking our limitations and running it in circles. This also teaches us that even though total perfection isn’t possible by any human, there is no limit as to how far one can go, unless you as a person decide what your threshold is.
Brainpower is infinite and that just shows that a human is not limited to a single ability. Do not constrain yourself, because even though you can’t be perfect in everyone’s view, you can be perfect for yourself. When you can do that you should realise that you are the best you can ever be for yourself. For some people reaching a state of self-perfection can be very difficult and that is sometimes known as denial. In this case you are denying giving yourself any additional good qualities, or, you have done the worst thing possible – and that is you have just given up trying. That is not a healthy mind set – either for you, or for those around you.
When a person is depressed and may give up, or someone who had such a big place in their heart has left you – either has died, or somehow stopped from continuing a relationship, many people feel this is the end of the world. But I assert, it is not so. You, each one of you, is born to live your life for yourself and for your family. For example, if the person who has left you was from your family, it is important to leave him or her and move on because if they didn’t care to stay, they just weren’t worth it.
On the other hand, if the person you loved has died, you should let him/her rest in peace because there is a saying “if loved ones cry a tear for a dead beloved, they in turn, where ever they are, shed two tears”. This means if you continue to be upset at the loss of someone, the person who has gone from your life is doubly upset – because they have to watch you cry and lament their absence. They don’t want to watch a family member be sad. We have to realise crying won’t bring anyone back, though it temporarily helps to give vent to our feelings. The sad truth of life is that they aren’t coming back. It is a reality humans must accept. Some do and move on. Some don’t and continue living a life full of pain at not only one’s loss but the fact that the departure is final and the person is not coming back, at least in that recognisable form which you were used to seeing him in.
This is one of the imperfections of man – the pain of losing someone, the sadness of watching loved ones weep, the suffering of knowing that the person is not going to return. And above all this is the unforgivable greed of those who take advantage of vulnerable people already suffering their loss, by wanting and taking something from them in this, their moment of weakness.
These are four of the basic imperfections of man which every person possesses. Our salvation and escape from these comes when we go to God’s heavenly abode.
