As human beings we don’t like limits, we crave that which is essentially beyond limits and beyond us and we are capable of more. We are capable of wisdom and love that transcends time and we carry a kind of eternity in our hearts.
Yet we are limited incomplete and unfinished, our tenure in life is so brief and fragile. There’s something missing in all of us, there are essential things which we cannot fix, cure or resolve with our human efforts.
We are intrinsically imperfect; this is how we are made and how we are meant to stay. We are meant to make mistakes, we are not supposed to know everything and for sure there’s no enlightened guru here. When we don’t make mistakes anymore, we will be out of this world. Playing God is our most tragic mistake.
Paradoxically we have to thank our mistakes, our brokenness and our pain.
“God has made us with a crack so that light can shine through”. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
