I've always found the transition from the holidays to the New Year fascinating. With whiplash-inducing speed, we careen from gift giving and expressing love, from the bottom of our hearts, to initiating our seven-point self-improvement plan.
Instead of being perfect in the New Year, let's try seeing perfect instead.
See everything as a perfect manifestation of divine essence, in which all events occur to inspire you and wake you up.
Because the world is your mirror, it will give that message back to you. When you say: "You are perfect!" to the world, the world will have no choice but to say: "You are perfect!" back to you!
