Rare, Not Perfect

From Mark Nepo’s The Book of Awakening:

“We are in moments pure and ageless as light, and with the very next breath, we drop things or bruise the treasures of a lifetime. We need to soothe ourselves, not blame ourselves. We are rare, not perfect, and seem destined to know all there is briefly, only to pound it into bread.”

On accepting moments of enlightenment without expectations of holding those moments for indefinite periods.
