I Am Perfect

Nobody’s perfect. Sound familiar? I’m sure it does. You may have even said it a time or two yourself. But what do we mean when we say it?

Is it a way to excuse mistakes we or others have made? Or is it a way of making ourselves feel better by reminding ourselves that no one is better than us? Or is it a way of cutting others down to size? Your reasons may vary depending on the situation. But it all boils down to the same thing….an excuse for mistakes made.

But what is perfection? What does it mean to be perfect? Dictionary.com defines perfect as ‘lacking nothing essential to the whole’ or ‘complete’. So, when we say ‘nobody’s perfect’, we’re saying that no one is complete. What we really mean is that everyone makes mistakes or that no one has everything and without flaw or blemish.
Most people’s definition of perfection usually comes from a limited point of view. Mistakes, flaws, blemishes, imperfections are all subjective and really depend on your perception. It’s when you begin simply see people, things, and situations for what they are without judgement that you begin to see perfection all around you.

To make mistakes is human. Mistakes are merely errors in judgement or a choice that may not have been in the best interest of all involved at that particular moment. But really, there are no “mistakes”….only results. You always have choice in everything. And the choices you make are either going to work out to be in your best interest or they won’t. But, if it is true that all things work together for good, then maybe mistakes aren’t really mistakes at all, huh? Marinate on that for a minute.

I believe the dictionary.com definition to be the most accurate. This is because I feel that there is no way any creation of God can be incomplete in any way. If we are indeed created in His image and it is in Him that we live, move, and have our being, then how can we be lacking anything? He is All and we are in Him, therefore do we not have and are we not a part of the All? How can you be created by Perfection and Completion itself and not be perfect and complete? Again, are we not created in His image? Could it be that only our awareness or consciousness of our perfection is the only thing that’s lacking?

People who run around claiming nobody’s perfect are merely making excuses for their perceived shortcomings or attempting to put the shortcomings of others ‘on blast’. So, to those people I say speak for yourself.

Creation is not unlike it’s Creator. Know God and you’ll know yourself, for you are One in and with Him. I am perfect….and so are you. Believe it. Know it. Live it. Peace.
