Practicing Perfection

My current practice is to look at all my thoughts and see if they're coming from the standpoint of "all is good, pure and right," or "what is wrong?" I have witnessed the latter so much lately that I realize I am like the line in my friend Shiner's song, "we find so much trouble in this world...we gotta stop looking for trouble in this world." I find my thoughts spiraling in patterns of judging myself, of fearing my place in the world... But thanks to meditation practices (and pranayama and yoga), my mind is revealing itself, and these deep waves of let-go, of acceptance, and self-compassion come over me. So my project is to see the inherent perfection in myself and the world. And to give thanks for the many blessings!
