The Way of wabi sabi by Deborah Lee Taylor
“Appreciate this and every moment, no matter how imperfect, for this moment is your life.
When you reject this moment, you reject your life.
You don’t have to settle for this moment, you are free to steer a different course,
but for now, this moment is yours, so be mindful to make the most of it.”
–from Living Wabi Sabi
We’ve all felt the influence of ‘perfection’ is happiness. The perfect house, perfect job, perfect love, even in our Art, we wish for perfection. The If Only, the When I… I myself have heard since childhood, ‘if only you … you would be perfect’. Through my own suffering of striving for perfection, I have come to know the true beauty of the meaning 'perfectly imperfect'. Through the practice of wabi sabi, I realized, to strive for perfection is a means of limiting your true creative Self.
'Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack, a crack in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.
