When Michelangelo was asked how he created a piece of sculpture, he answered that the statue already existed within the marble.  God Himself had created the Pieta, David, Moses.  Michelangelo’s job, as he saw it, was to get rid of the excess marble that surrounded God’s creation.  So it is with you.  The perfect you isn’t something you need to create, because God already created it.

The perfect you is the love within you.  Your job is to allow the Holy Spirit to remove the fearful thinking that surrounds your perfect self, just as excess marble surrounded Michelangelo’s perfect statue.

The closest thing to perfection is in the ability to be fully present. Without any distracting thoughts, measuring or grading ourselves, we’re free to really be in the moment. It’s in that moment that we’re truly alive.
