A few months ago I noticed that my personal Grail cup had sprung a leak and so I set about repairing the damage…
As a perfectionist in many areas of my life I had embraced the idea that imperfections were a great way of assessing sincerity and acceptance in others. I did this subconsciously of course, I mean why would my conscious, fully awakened self need to test people? This phenomenon occurred unbeknownst to me in every aspect of my life from my physical vessel to my home, from my work to my relationships. The problem being that the flaws I created didn’t test how others saw or accepted me but instead how I saw and accepted myself… now there’s a paradox if ever I heard one simply because when you don’t accept yourself that’s when others fail to accept you. Your flaws do not deter the fundamentally flawed, in fact they attract others to you, what repels them or creates insincerity within them is the massive leak of energy seeping from the metaphorical Grail that either washes them clean away or feeds their greed depending on the people involved.
The first kind being those who come in love, those wishing to embrace you and add to your light and the second having similar leaky vessels and so refuelling from your leak… sounds all very technical but here’s the thing: plugging up your vessel allows it to fill up and thus allows others to refuel from the overflow instead of the depleting spillage. There will still be those opportunists who drink it in, no matter: there is plenty more where that came from; there will still be those who get washed away, frightened by the light, no matter: God will find them a safe shore upon which to rest before finding there energetic match; but then there is a third type of perfectly imperfect partner in crime… I’ve have lots of those thankfully, they are the ones whose imperfections make them shine just as brightly as mine do me and together we are blinding!
If you want to plug your leak, if you want to allow others to see and accept you just as you are all you have to do is love yourself unconditionally, not in spite of your imperfections but because of them… you’ll probably find that many of them disappear anyway once you no longer feel the need to test people.
Principle 1: I AM God (therefore perfect)
Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted (therefore the imperfections are perfect too)!
