"for I do not await the future; anticipating salvation, absolution, not even enlightenment through process... I subscribe to the premise that this flawed perfection is sufficient, and complete, in every single ineffable moment."

'flawed perfection '.....isnt that an oxymoron?
or is it more along the lines of cindy crawford's beauty spot?
sorry to be picky, but perhaps just 'perfection' would suffice.

In reply to:

"I subscribe to the premise that this flawed perfection is sufficient, and complete, in every single ineffable moment."



That might work for you, but what about, say, a bonded child laborer in India, or a starving orphan in Afghanistan, or an ALS sufferer on his deathbed, or...

Somebody's after me
I can't pretend to be
Something I know I'm not
And when they come for me
I'll just let them be
Because all that I need today
Is all I need

I just wanna be thinking
Thoughts that I think
Dreaming my dreams and drifting within
I don't know where I 'm going
But I know where I been
Come on
Look within

Someone will always be
More than I'll ever be
So then I'll be myself
And when they come for me
I'll just let them be
Cos all that I need today
I need today

Well if we just use the word perfection than that would be denying our flaws. Saying 'flawed perfection' sounds more like that we acknowledge the flaws are there but accept them as a part of us.

So how exactly does that make every moment any less perfect and complete. Life and death, pleasure and pain, they are all one in the same. Two sides of the same coin.

Hmm... I don't wanna edit someone elses words, but how about this?

For I do not await the future, and do not regret (or dwell on) the past...
