There is an absolute very best version of yourself.
When you stand before that vision, the gap between your consciousness that you have developed on earth and that absolute glorious vision, is the distance between you and your liberation. When you view yourself as personified perfection, you will either forgive your current state or cringe. The degree in which you cringe is the calibration of what you have yet to perfect.
Everyone grows old, very few grow up.
So close your eyes and repeat after me. Even though there will be times that I think this is total and utter nonsense, I am going to step out of my past and into the space not yet occupied and from there my next step will be into the space that does not yet exist.
