Good Heavens! Perfection, an enemy? How can that be?
I have a note near my desk that says: “My best is never going to be perfect, and that’s okay with me. I release my drive for perfection. I embrace my drive for mastery.”
Many of us have fantastic ideas, ideas that would really benefit the world if we would release them into the world.
We hold back because the representation of the idea—a book, a tool, a song, a painting, a garden, a system, etc.—isn’t perfect.
The question isn’t: is the idea and its presentation perfect; the question is: have you mastered the idea and how you are presenting it so that others will understand it?
This can be a difficult question to answer. I write. When I give my writing to the world, I have re written it many times; I usually edit three or four proofs before I allow something to be published not because I’m seeking perfection or even excellence, but because I want to make certain that communication between me and thee is the best it can be.
So that I don’t get bogged down into the impossibility of perfection—after all, none of us is Mother/Father God—I involve the angels of all of us from the very first moment the idea appears.
Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,
We are grateful that we know you and that we know Mother/Father God. It is with great joy that we accept that the world is a friendly, supportive, encouraging place.
It is, also, with joy and thanksgiving that we accept that all of us are constantly nurtured, supported and protected. We live in a field of infinite possibilities and we know it.
We live in the over flow of all good. From this overflow comes everything we need and everything we seek. We hone our craft. We celebrate our creativity. We communicate easily.
We relax in the acceptance of our givingness and of our mastery. We let go of perfection. We rejoice in who we are really, an aspect, a creation of Mother/Father God.
We know that knowing is more powerful than believing. At this moment, we know that we have mastered our ideas and their presentation to our world.
And so it is.
