The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers {69} ~ Perfection, Can We Attain It?

“IN the nature of the case, perfection cannot be attained because the question would be what happens after you attain it, when you reach the stage where you have nothing more to achieve? Perfection is an infinite process. It is the constant elimination of dross to allow the pure gold of the spirit to emerge. You cannot put a period to infinity; you cannot put a full stop to eternity.

It is like knowledge. The more you learn, the more you learn there is to be learned. You cannot arrive at the summit of all knowledge. There is an infinite number of planes, levels and spheres, of consciousness. This is an attribute of the spirit which, being infinite, means there will always be a constant development.” ~ The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers, P. 175

  1. For me, perfection is the cognitive carrot on a stick that we can use to maintain movement towards something or a state we desire to achieve. I haven’t seen or experienced anything perfect up to this point. As a tool and philosophical concept, it may work, but the downside is if you believe the state of perfection is an actual it can lead to negative feelings about self and others. It works better, for me, as a belief system. Great Question
