A Spiritual Approach to Perfectionism
We tend to be perfectionists in one way or another, but why? What’s the purpose of perfectionism? Is it a good or bad thing? Pujya Sadhviji explains beautifully in this excerpt from the Divine Live Satsang.
We keep telling ourselves, everything would be great, if I just were richer. Everything would be great if I just were more beautiful. Everything would be great if I just could live in this house or that house if I just could have this job or that job this husband or that husband. Until and unless we can recognize the absolute perfection of the moment, this very moment we’ll always have this feeling of lack & it’s this that steals away real joy from our lives.
