Why didrepparttar 122322 creator createrepparttar 122323 universe with all living beings? Why did he create these frail beings that appear as a weed one day and disappearrepparttar 122324 next? Was He/She looking for slaves to worship him or underlings to pay homage? Was he looking for adoration from his creation that had no freedom to do anything other than what he wanted them to do? The praises and adoration by his own creation would be just like my making a tape recording of self adulation and listening to it every day. It would not satisfy evenrepparttar 122325 ego of a vainglorious human being. Then in what way will it benefitrepparttar 122326 great Creator ofrepparttar 122327 universe?

If he is a cruel monster who likes to see living creatures go through agony, like an ignorant child pluckingrepparttar 122328 wings and legs off flies, we can believe that he might have created human beings to cast them in hell and see them writhe in pain and beg for mercy.

Butrepparttar 122329 creation does not reflect such cruel nature. Onrepparttar 122330 contrary Creator has given mothers, even mothers of animals, infinite love for their progeny. They sacrifice their lives and offer themselves as prey when predators attack their young ones. We see this in Africa when leopards attack young gazelles. I have seen it myself. I could not find any cruelty inrepparttar 122331 nature ofrepparttar 122332 creator.

If we watch birds, we will see their untiring enterprise to find food for their nestlings, coaxingrepparttar 122333 raptorial birds away fromrepparttar 122334 nestlings, and protectingrepparttar 122335 young ones with self-sacrifice. All these are examples of their loving nature. These indicate thatrepparttar 122336 creator has endowed them with love.

Still I did not findrepparttar 122337 purpose of creation. Then I argued that if I can find outrepparttar 122338 substance ofrepparttar 122339 Creator, I might be able to find his nature, just as Mendeleyev,repparttar 122340 Russian scientist foundrepparttar 122341 nature of atoms from their substance. I tried this approach namely to findrepparttar 122342 substance ofrepparttar 122343 Creator but I could not. I thought thatrepparttar 122344 substance ofrepparttar 122345 creator may be energy. But there was no proof for it. It was only an assumption on my part. So I rejected that idea.

Is it right to long for perfection?

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 loserepparttar 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 yourselfrepparttar 122316 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 beginrepparttar 122317 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. Onrepparttar 122318 contrary, it is every reason to rise up and go forth with renewed determination.
