Does sight exist not to see, or hearing not to hear?
So too does existence not exist to achieve imperfection but rather perfection. More still, existence tends towards perfection and not imperfection.
This idea is scoffed at in many ways, one being this: reality cannot be anything other than 'it is.' I.e., nature's imperfections is reality's perfection. We cannot speak of ideal perfection for we do not know it. We cannot know it. Nothing exists beyond 'it is.'
What these ones do not recognize is that every motion is a motion "for" or "towards" some end. Every motion either does not achieve that end or achieves that end in degrees of perfection.
Unconscious, we may feel like we act with no purpose or that all happens around us without purpose. Yet, this is where we must look inward at ourselves: who do I want to become? In what manner am I becomming that person?
We may be surprised that the end we desire is not the one we are moving towards. We may, at times, be surprised by the low, imperfect, and inconsequential ends we strive for.
In Christ, I believe, we find that someone we may strive for. But see what a marvelous perfection it is!
Christ bore weakness and himself was weak. He bore weakness and was strong. His smallness only magnified his glory. The perfection we seek is not in losing ourselves, but dying to ourselves such that we regain ourselves completely. Even 'it is' strives towards 'it is perfect.' The fact that we are individuals does not mean we must seek to lose individuality, but claim it totally. This is what a relationship with God is.
Do we, then, exist to tend towards imperfection, or perfection?
