Honza,

Consistency would be boring……it is the inconsistencies which allow one to even have a concept of perfection.

Perfection is an interesting topic. From the non dual perspective, perfection is not possible in the world: the world is inevitably imperfect.

For me perfection is the formless behind the form. I think Plato and Socrates considered perfection. I could be wrong but I think Plato considered there to be what he called the unseen Idea of perfection, and what we see in the world is less than perfect.

You don't feel funny calling God - "It'', tho?
I sure can not...maybe we can compare our experiences in pms one day...I know we all exp God directly, up-close and personal
it can be different for each person...no right or wrong. I'd love to hear all about it. :) (Since God is my favorite topic.)

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru

Hi,

I agree…..I cannot relate to an “it”……an it is an it. As a human I want something I can relate to. For some of us maybe it, at first, helps to think of God as a distant relative(which He is). It is with the desire to know him that we close this gap…….until He becomes incredibly close…..especially if the kingdom of God is within us. Finding our Self is finding God……we should be active participants of this ‘evolution’………..
