<span style="background-color:transparent;color:#000000;">Perfection is not a summit, it is not an extreme. There is no extreme: whatsoever you do, there is always the possibility of something better and exactly this possibility of something better is the very meaning of progress.</span>
<span style="background-color:transparent;color:#000000;">Perfection is not a maximum or an extreme. It is an equilibrium and a harmonisation.</span><span style="background-color:transparent;color:#0066cc;"><ref><u></u></ref></span>
<span style="background-color:transparent;color:#000000;">Perfection is eternal; it is only the resistance of the world that makes it progressive.</span>
<span style="background-color:transparent;color:#000000;">Our very way of thinking is wrong. The believers, the faithful, all of them—particularly in the West—when they speak of God, think of Him as "something else," they think that He cannot be weak, ugly or imperfect—they think wrongly, they divide, they separate. It is subconscious, unreflecting thought; they are in the habit of thinking like this instinctively; they do not watch themselves thinking. For example, when they speak of "perfection" in a general way, they see or feel or postulate precisely the sum-total of everything they consider to be virtuous, divine, beautiful, admirable—but it is not that at all! Perfection is something which lacks nothing. The divine perfection is the Divine in His entirety, which lacks nothing. The divine perfection is the Divine as a whole, from whom nothing has been taken away—so it is just the opposite! For the moralists divine perfection means all the virtues that they represent.</span>
