I was taking care of the animals the other day when this thought popped up in my head: “It is the imperfections that create the beauty in what we see.” Perfection is misunderstood to mean equal, or exactly the same. This could not be further from the truth. It is the imperfections that make the uniqueness in everything and everyone, thereby displaying the beauty of the individual. To be beautiful, the imperfections must do their work to carve out perfection in a unique manifestation.
So, if we are blindly following a “so called” path to perfection while disdaining anything imperfect, we are in fact, disdaining the very path by which perfection is attained. That is when we think we are on the “good path,” which only leads to destruction.
We just don’t get it. Instead of embracing the imperfect and realizing its value, we try to eradicate it and replace it with things like genetically modified organisms, and wonder why the destruction is so complete; but that’s another story…
