All this talk about being perfect doesn’t mean that we don’t have work to do in the being better human beings department. Being ‘perfect’ has nothing to do with being blameless, or that our every act is beyond reproach. The reality is that while our spirits are perfect, our behaviour oftentimes, is not.
That’s the distinction between the perfection of loving ourselves unconditionally and the not so perfect choices we often make. Our choices are not who we are. Choices are changeable. Our inherent perfection is not.
