Translated teachings of Master Patana

Being Perfect is Neurotic.

Bookmark to read later.

Striving for perfection is an endless pursuit, a futile attempt to reach an unattainable ideal. It’s a trap that many fall into, thinking that if they just work harder, do more, be better, they will finally reach the pinnacle of perfection.

But the truth is, perfection is an illusion. It’s an impossible standard that sets us up for failure and disappointment. When we strive for perfection, we not only set ourselves up for failure, but we also inadvertently belittle and condemn others who don’t meet our standards.

Perfectionism is a mental trap that can lead to a distorted view of ourselves and the world around us. We become so focused on our flaws and shortcomings that we lose sight of our strengths and achievements. We become blinded to the beauty and imperfections that make us human.

In our pursuit of perfection, we miss out on the present moment, constantly striving for an ideal that doesn’t exist. We forget to appreciate the journey, the process of growth and learning that shapes us into who we are.

The only true perfection is found in enlightenment. When we are awakened, we realize that perfection is not something to be sought after, but something that already exists within us. It’s the realization that we are already whole and complete, just as we are.

So let go of the need to be perfect. Embrace your imperfections and celebrate the beauty of being human. Focus on growth, learning, and becoming the best version of yourself, without the burden of perfection weighing you down.
