You Already Are…
I think about the fact that we are both perfect and at the same time, evolving…a work in progress. This notion is prevalent in Yoga practice: in the idea of Sankalpa which encourages us to be, enjoying our perfection and our beautiful nature as unique beings – while at the same time, considering what our true life’s purpose is and creating that in our lives.
While it is important that you continue to evolve, grow, and nourish your self – seeking out ways to become more, better, kinder; consider that you essence – your true spirit – is perfect and has always been exactly what you need; exactly what you want to become.
You both are and are evolving at the same time.
You are the hockey coach, the concert pianist, the philanthropist, the author, the photographer, the poet. You are whatever you truly desire to be – while at the same time you are the evolution of this self.
Just as this magnificent tree exists, growing among the rock (where the Colorado River established its course through the Grand Canyon at least 17 million years ago), you exist - already magnificent, perfect – perfection – while at the same time, growing and evolving as well.
