Perfection

What is perfection?
This thing that we mention
This mode that we talk of
This ancient convention

It sits in our minds and assesses our actions
It looks at what’s out there and causes reactions
We want it, we crave it
Yet our senses are marred, can we trust our perceptions?

What is it……..?
Something exquisite
Or something of myth
That we never will visit

Or Maybe a path you can follow – a worthy direction
Or choices you make through some careful selection
Or is it chance
The hope of some future election

Or are they all aspects of this purest condition
This mindset beyond a pure human rendition
But something above us
The state that explains the creator’s decision

Something outside us but in us in seed
Something in flowers as well as in weeds
Something in process
The nature of the only one worthy to bleed

About Ben

Someone trying to understand and live relationship with God within the context and fabric of normal everyday life. Most people observe the deep need for change in our world; change that would mean seemingly countless yet avoidable difficulties and tragedies might be avoided. Those observations reflect the reality of our everyday world and our innate awareness of the possibility of something better. We live in the wonderful yet profoundly troubled present; we grasp for the potential that God had placed before us. I would like to communicate, in the most helpful way possible, what little I might be able to understand about this story through my own journey with God.
