Is it right to long for perfection?Written by ajaypats
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose ability to learn new things and move forward with your life.Assert your right to make a few mistakes. If people can't accept your imperfections, that's their fault.Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself right to be human can, paradoxically, make you a far happier and more productive person.Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering you own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin task anew.
Things will never be perfect. Sometimes they will never even be close. Yet that is no reason to hide away from life, no reason to curse your predicament. On contrary, it is every reason to rise up and go forth with renewed determination.
Psychic Phenomenon: Gifts, Powers, or Abilities?Written by Christin Snyder
Psychic Phenomenon: Gifts, Powers, or Abilities? by Christin Snyder
In my work as a psychic who seeks to mentor those developing their own skills, I find it important to mention this subject. I refer to psychic abilities as just what they are - skills or abilities. The other terms I find to be damaging as they infer that this is unatainable by others, or that psychic senses are much more “supernatural” than they actually are.
Often I hear others speak of their developing abilities as “gifts”, as though they were so special that God gave them this unique and special ability and not others. Unfortunately, many famous psychics also do this, insinuate that some great mystical super-secret society power has been bestowed on them. This is harmful to those who would love to develop psychically but feel that they “aren't enough” somehow, or haven't been “chosen”.
Are psychic abilities gifts? Indeed they are. Those of us who have developed them recognize that we are blessed, but I also recognize that every breath I take on this planet is also a gift. I also know that we all breathe. Therefor oxygen, while still a beautiful, precious gift that should not be taken for granted, is something that we can all partake in. Psychic ability is no different. Just as everyone can pick up a pencil and write with it, everyone can also learn to develop some form of psychic skill set. Not everyone will become a pulitzer prize winning novelist, or famous poet, but that doesn't stop all of rest of us from writing, so why should it stop beginners in Metaphysical studies from even trying? It is amazing to me number of people who come to me and say “I don't think I am gifted?” or “Can you tell me if I have gifts?”. My answer: Are you standing here, breathing, having a life experience right now? then yes you are gifted. The key is not focusing on lack or what one doesn't have, but appreciating what is.
Psychic abilities are not elusive foreign phenomenon that only chosen few can bring forward, they are an innate set of senses, hidden deep within psyche and soul of each being that must be allowed to be brought forward. Many people don't agree with this, they believe that because they want psychic abilities that they must already be allowing it and it just isn't coming. This is very untrue. Developing these skills means adjusting to a different reality that what is presently understood and accepted both by society and individual. The body/mind have a natural resistance to this in place as a protective mechanism. In order to reach our fullest potential psychically, we have to work at peeling away barriers. It can take considerable time and effort to allow these abilities to manifest to their fullest potential, and as with anything worth having they require persistence and dedication.
