Humanity has created the idea of perfection and set itself up for perfect failure every time this impossible goal is not met. The very idea of perfection implies a complete state that already exists that one must strive for and attain. Even the Divine Source of all life is not perfect, for that implies static completion with no opportunity to move to higher states of being. The Divine is always becoming more. Always experimenting, always playing with energy, gaining insights through the inhaling and exhaling of life in multiple universes across infinite time.
