Throughout the ages, man has strived to be perfect. Many books and articles have been written on becoming perfect. Religions and fraternal organizations have been established , all in the pursuit of perfection. In spite of all of this , most people have no idea what perfection is.
Many say Jesus was perfect and we should follow his example, but what does that mean? By who’s standard of perfection do we follow, and was Jesus perfect. I’m sure in his time, many would disagree with the notion that Jesus was perfect.
His travels to India, Egypt, possibly Stone Henge and the new world would have many believe he was far from perfect. they would have been asking, why doesn’t this guy have a job, why the long hair? Who are these people he is hanging out with. Being of the Jewish faith many would have asked,”why isn’t he married? He needs to settle down and raise a family.” I’m sure Pontius Pilate and his gang of desperadoes didn’t think he was perfect.

Everyone has a different perspective of what perfection is. Look at the political arena, or the entertainment and sports industry, everyone has their favorite team, candidate, or movie star, and each individual thinks his favorite is the perfect human being. It leads one to think that perfection is just a matter of perspective and no one can really be perfect.
This is a question I have been asking myself for years, what is perfection and how do we achieve it? It certainly has nothing to do with our personal appearance and often times not even our .actions have anything to do with it.
I have come to the conclusion that being perfect, although it does affect our actions and feelings towards others has nothing to do with our physical life as such, it is all about our connection with our God, or the God Source.
Jesus studied his whole life, and was in tune with his environment and the creator. Because of the knowledge he came in with, and his desire to know God, he became a student of life and of Nature’s or God’s Laws, in this way he became perfect. He had a perfect connection with God. Because of this he was able to turn water into wine, walk on water, heal the sick and raise the dead.
As we can see from this, perfection has nothing to do with our appearance or social standing in life, it is all about our connection with the Supreme Being. Thankfully, this connection is available to all of us as Jesus said, “These things that I do, you shall do also.” As we study and grow, so can the kingdom of heaven be ours.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search, at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.
