Practice … if we don’t expect to get it right every time, if we’re kind to ourselves and gentle with ourselves even when we can’t get to that place of choice in awareness while we’re enduring the tedium and frustrating petty annoyances of the world, … if we can accept ourselves without judgment even when we fall short of our goal, perhaps our inability to be “perfect” becomes sacred as well.
