What we perceive as flaws are nothing less than the brightest spark of creativity. Our imagination bubbles up and flows forth most freely in the face of contrast. For example, a carpenter finds a corner that is off-kilter and feels inspired to transform it into a thing of practical beauty - crafting a cupboard or a casement to house crockery or treasure. Upon viewing his handiwork, he spies a knot in the wood. An imperfection? No! A beautiful rose. He carves a winding vine of leaves and petals and stands back once more. What does he see? Magnificence! A seamstress accidentally rents a garment, only to repair it with shimmering embroidery. She has created a work of art.
You, dear One, are perfection. Just as you are. Right here. Right now. In this moment. You are a treasure, a work of art that is far superior to the plainness of convention, or what you might imagine “perfection” to be.
Let us see our flaws as they are: Inspiration to create our dreams come true.
Spark on, Spirit!
All is well.
