The Great Perfection seems Imperfect

The Great Perfection seems Imperfect?

Dear Wisdom,

Please help us to fully appreciate the meaning of the Tao te Ching:

“The Great Perfection seems imperfect, yet this world it creates is never impaired. The Great Fullness seems empty, yet this world it creates is never lacking.”  (verse 45)

Please explain these contradictions. What are our take-home lessons from this cryptic passage? Thank YOU!

Care to comment, Wisdom ?


            Life is imperfect. In the spiritual realm, God is perfect and more recognizable. God is perfect in all the dimensions but appears to be hidden from view in so many lives on earth.

*When man’s emotions rationalize God is behind their problems, life seems to be against them.

*Students blame the teacher for the challenging material to learn. Is it not for the students benefit to learn and comprehend the material? Man is born without the memory of the soul. There seems to be a void within. Nothing in the physical world can fill it. Humans try to fill the lack with possessions, food or other people. Nothing suffices.

*Only God’s unconditional love is the key to unlocking the heart.

When a person masters this truth, life becomes more balanced and less stressful. At this level of connection of the Most High, a person understands all humans have a soul working on drawing closer to this unconditional love. It is as if most people were walking around blindfolded to the truth. They do not realize all that is needed would be to remove the blindfold. The blindfold is in your heart. It is the illusion that one is protecting themself from being hurt. God never hurts It’s children.

*It is the soul’s choice to learn the lessons needed to uncover more of the Almighty. God is the perfect vibration. Man is imperfect. Man has a piece of God within. Therefore, the spark of life that is within the human makes perfection within imperfection.

One asked God for this insight. When one wakes up to this truth, the blinders are removed. The heart is filled with love. Now perfection can be seen in the imperfection. 

            Thank you so much, Wisdom, with joy.

            You’re welcome our little shower.

A shower helps clean a body of the built up grime and grease. The soul also needs a shower to clean away illusions and untruths. Use a spiritual shower to see more unconditional love. This is the soul’s mission. You can help the soul by seeing perfection in the imperfection.
