Consideration of Perfection

Have you ever considered that you are already perfect? This from a discussion regarding the notion that imperfection is perfection.

Does a flower require improvement? The roots are buried in dirt from which springs the flower.

So, what are we doing here? Why do we seem imperfect?

The whole process is necessary. The flower is implied in the seed.

It is the consideration that imperfection might actually be perfection.

Everyone is imperfect. The imagination of perfection drives people to do many terrible things. I believe it is better to be modest and accept we can achieve best possible outcomes as far as circumstances allow us. Don’t believe in perfection, it makes people corrupt... “the perfect society”, “the perfect god”, “the golden age”, “that one experience that only matters, rest is bad” and all of this is what is making people unhappy. Try your best (if you want) but don’t be stuck in delusions.

Ignorance is imperfection. Removal of ignorance reveals perfection.

In essence it all depends on the identity of "I".
