Bloviating Zeppelin: Imperfect

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

We are all imperfect.

Some are more imperfect than others.

And our own personal imperfections run towards more specifics than others.

My imperfections will not necessarily be those of you or your friends or neighbors.

How do we recognize our imperfections? Or do we even acknowledge them, as we should?

Are we aware of our limitations, our personal "chinks in the armour"?

We all have them. We have different explanations or labels for them. Perhaps you know them as your "hot buttons." Perhaps you have many; luckily may you have few.

I have my own and they seem, to me, to be legion.

I have come to examine them now because, realizing that I suspect they are "legion," I must needs reel them in to a reasonable level. I am married now. I have made a commitment to my wife and this requires introspection and examination. By its very nature.

And a further question: having realized and acknowledged our mutual imperfections, how must we then factor "forgiveness" into the equation?

For an aggrieved party, an affront, can there, must there, be forgiveness? And on what level? And for what affront? Are there steps or levels?

And how would the one of most egregious, infidelity, factor into imperfection and forgiveness? Can there, should there, be forgiveness?

Introspection. Questions.

How does one deal with imperfection when it comes? And how must one apply forgiveness?

That is the founding of the Nation, Mr. Z... not to be perfect, but to be 'more perfect'. As a Nation we fail and then strive again to do that so that we can improve ourselves and our society. I leave absolute perfection for other realms and any seeking it in this I view askance for there is so little that can be so, and most of those are limited to tyranny and death - both of which can gain perfection.

But 'more perfect' can be achieved.

If we keep the eye on the perfect and realize it is a guide, not an end.

Hey BZ, I have found it is easier to forgive than to harbor the hurt. The only one that truly suffers is the one who hasn't forgiven.

When it comes to forgiveness, it is best to forgive and leave it in the past.

You can't change the past, but you can change the future.

I have one marriage motto (that has two parts), Never lie (even little white lies, and forgive everything (which make it more likely that you will be forgiven)

AJ: lofty goals indeed but, as you indicate, they are guides and not ends. Perfectly stated.

Anonymous: another excellent point insofar as the one continuing the hurt continues the hurt.

3S10: Makes good sense; if one wishes to be forgiven, forgive.

Check out a song. Look for Audio Adrenaline's Underdog.
