    Nothing in this world is perfect.If you believe in GOD,well He/She is Perfect.So why try to be perfect? Let's not strive for perfection in each and everything we do.Imperfection in nature adds to its variety.Imagine human beings cast perfectly in an identical mould physically.What a disaster it would be!No beauty to admire.

     Well said and so true.  Only God is perfect.  I don't even use the word 'perfect', but use 'ideal' instead.  I don't strive for perfection, but I strive to do the very best that I know I'm capable of doing.

     The world itself is perfect. If you look at it from scientific view point of nature there is precision in everything which is controlled by nature. Anything which does not follow law of nature becomes imperfect. Having said such even the imperfection in our life is to attain perfection. Perfection that is to be reached is the inner perfection and primary one thing is not to hurt  or cause someone to hurt or support someone hurting even slightly, the ego of any living being.

     Thank you, Keshav and Annette.  Your thoughts are most "ideal"!  
    In creating anything, it is important to allow God to work through you.  There is energy, inspiration, flow and freedom from "outside yourself".  When we Co-create, it becomes the work of "Our Hands".  This, in my mind, is as close to perfection as we can get.  
    Amen Keshav and Annette!
