April 28, 2020 (Muse of the day) Regarding the pursuit of perfection
It is important to not lose oneself chasing ideals that are constantly morphing throughout time and history
All the civilizations, societies, and cultures of this world will have a different idea of what is perfect to them
This blind chase will eventually reveal itself as a fruitless and wasteful endeavour
So don't spend too long attempting to encompass this false ideal
For there is not much sense in dedicating your attentions to something that is non-existent within the familiar constructs of this universe
Perfection is naught but a shimmering seed residing deep within the liquid shadowy eyes of the individual
A pure reflection of the internal and external entwined - manifesting itself as an efflorescence of beauty.
