October 2006 (About Perfection)


[225] In order to be able to give full love, one must get rid of the ties. The errors that one made have to be fixed and again retrieved. Ze, to whom was slipped up, should have forgiven us and be good. We should try to avoid the error in the future. We should engage in soul-searching and consider, what let us be misdirected. If it was an unavoidable error, we do not have to accuse ourselves anything. [226] We should try to invert the unpleasing into pleasing. If the error was avoidable, we should refine ourselves, in order to avoid the error in the future. We should remember that perfection is not entitled to us. We should accept for us and keep in memory the error made, without burdening us. About the important errors we should think more intensely than about the unimportant. [227] We should not assume a too large debt. It can be that the fate made the error inevitable, even if it does not look so at first sight. The fate takes sometimes the strangest ways. We should accept us furthermore as fallible humans and cajole us, if L does not do it. [228] Unjustified self-reproaches are bad and can destroy us. Therefore, we should keep a positive picture of us and fully accept us. We should work on our good virtues and act according to plan, if necessary. Each virtue can be still improved. [229] Also a once attained goal can be lost in the course of time again. Then one has to reschedule. We should be able not to be frightened from our environment, but continue the way we want to go. We should compliment us on our successes, if L does not do it. We need the laud, if it does not come from others. [230] By positive moods we create positive experiences. The work on our virtues should be hard. Everything that is here going easily, does not attain the goal yet. Nobody can possess all virtues, but the most important anyway. Perfection is not to be aimed at, since it destroys itself. It depends also much on the perception and does not attain what others can expect from us. [231] We should not leer, however, too much at expectations of others, since we are on our way. But the desires of others should not be callous to us also. Criticism is always a good counsellor, even if the actual advice is not obvious. We should not become perfect too fast. The persistent way is the correct one.
