(This is being written in response to questions and remarks initiated by the posting of “Convergence of Thoughts.”


There seems to be some confusion regarding “do your best” and “perfection”.  So let’s discuss that a little bit.


I certainly did not mean to imply that one should set out to be the world’s best/perfect anything – Olympic champ, entrepreneur, corporate giant, mother/father, or anything else.  I did mean that one should endeavor to do “your” best at all times.  It can often be that the person who came in 10th place and did their best was more successful than the person who came in 3rd and slacked off.  This is NOT about being “perfect” or #1 in all things.  It IS about being present and conscious in whatever you do and not doing anything by half-measures.


Although it is important to do one’s best at whatever activity one is engaged in, the truer interpretation of the previous writing is this – You at Your Best is an aspect of the Creator, and it is THOSE aspects that have no quarter-sanction.  There are no degrees of love, peace, joy, kindness, allowing.  (One either IS or is NOT.)  THOSE are the areas wherein it is important to be YOU at YOUR BEST – the best defined here at the Spiritual Being that you are.


I know the bar is high, but then, who wants to aim low?


Love you all -- JOAN
