Perfection as Delusion

Perfectionism, or seeking Perfection as the goal, means the mind has created and idea of what that looks like.

The image of the “perfect” result then guides the inspiration, the effort and the commitment to achieve .

Then something happens and the goal gets pushed out further and further as Perfection is never reached.

The ego freaks out in crisis.

One ego fights on and still holds on to the beleif that perfection will be obtained.

One ego collapses, flagellates, quits in shame.

One ego, after failing at the options above, gets “woke” and sees perfection in everything as is.
