(from the book “Imperfect spirituality”, by Polly Campbell –
“Perfection”, writes Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, “is an engine that actually retards human progress, because it continually tosses humans back on a sense of their own inadequacy.”,
When we look deeply at our struggle and imperfection, when we move through it instead of trying to avoid, deny, and hide from ourselves and our truth, we have the opportunity then to do better and to experience more of those ‘perfect’ spiritual moments of compassion, patience and love.
We become more spiritual beings when we give ourselves the grace and space to see truly where we are, and who we are.
We also get the luxury to decide who we will be in the next moment.
