The Law of Perfection


“Perfection is not just about control. It’s also about letting go.”
Richard Wilbur
“Perfection is not found in the absence of flaws, but in embracing them as part of our unique beauty.”


Once upon a time, there was a young artist named Sophia. People knew her for her exceptional talent and precision in painting. Her artworks were so detailed and flawless that they left people in awe. Sophia took great pride in her ability to create perfection on the canvas, always striving to capture every minute detail. She yet had to learn the Law of Perfection.

One day, Sophia decided to paint a beautiful landscape, hoping to create her masterpiece. She spent countless hours meticulously painting every leaf, every blade of grass, and every ripple in the water. But no matter how hard she tried, she felt like something was missing. The painting lacked life and vibrancy despite its flawless execution.

Frustrated, Sophia took a walk in nature to clear her mind. As she strolled through a meadow, she noticed a butterfly gracefully fluttering from flower to flower. Sophia paused to observe the butterfly, marveling at its delicate wings and vibrant colors. At that moment, she realized that despite its imperfections—a slightly torn wing here, a faded color there—the butterfly was perfect in its own way.

Inspired by the butterfly, Sophia returned to her studio with a newfound perspective. She picked up her brush and, instead of focusing solely on perfection, she allowed herself to paint with passion and authenticity. She let go of the need for every stroke to be flawless, embracing the beauty in imperfections.

As Sophia completed her new painting, she stood back and marveled at the result. The artwork was filled with energy and life. It captured the essence of the landscape and evoked emotions in those who gazed upon it. Sophia realized she could not find perfection in flawlessness but in expressing her unique artistic voice.

This story teaches us that true perfection lies in embracing our individuality and allowing our authentic selves to shine rather than striving for an unattainable ideal. Thus, we find perfection in embracing the beauty of imperfection.


Daily, the world is going through countless events of pain and suffering. Observing this play from a narrow-minded perspective offers imperfection everywhere. So, where can we find perfection in this world?

We must switch to a transcendental perspective where everything is perfect. In the view of the Creator, all that happens is an essential part of the bigger game. Ultimately, we are all cells of stardust on a tiny planet in the vast universe.

We are all going through evolution, meaning that, paradoxically, everything is perfect at any moment. Yet, we improve in the next moment only to be perfect again. We always continue to change, learn, and evolve. However, by setting unrealistic ambitions, we suffer through never feeling good enough. We often set goals high up and solely keep the focus on them. By neglecting the path, we miss out on the joy and fun along the way. Furthermore, once we reach the goal, if at all, we set it even higher. As a result, this creates a spiral of suffering. In contrast, if we embrace every moment, every adventure, and growth, we can live life joyfully and effortlessly.

Through this acceptance, we also make peace with ourselves and our progress. The ancient Alchemical Transformation process teaches in a 7-step system the art of evolution fully embracing the Law of Perfection. By repeatedly going through each part of the journey, we grow in an ever-evolving upward spiral of life. Furthermore, Alchemy raises our awareness that every step is essential and bypassing only leads to further suffering.
