“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.” – Vince Lombardi.

I do not like absolutes. I do not like dealing with them, I do not like thinking about them, and I do not think we can deal with them. I do not like them for solutions, and I do not think that we live in a world that supports them, for good or evil.

We live in a world that seems to be quite hostile to absolutes, even absolutes that seem to be absolutely good.

But yet, I do not think that we strive for anything anymore. Not absolute evil, not absolute good. It certainly seems that way, and probably a lot of people do it, and a lot of people who I think might not do it, do it, so who knows? I could be blowing smoke.

Regardless of that though, who is striving and what we are doing life is about striving. Even if you are just milling about not striving you are striving, or letting others do so on your behalf.

That is the goal in life to often strive, and work, to something that you deem good. Or even letting someone do it on your behalf.

A Government that redistributes wealth, organized religions, almost anything.

But we cannot get to ultimate good, or ultimate evil, by ourselves. Often we need help.

From those around us in the temporal realm, and those entities behind the veil either tempting us or laying down a series of guides and principles that we can live our lives. Either God guiding us, or the other guy tempting us.

We just have to pick the ones that we believe and feel in our essence is right, and then strive for that.

Because those are principles and we often do not live up to them as much as we like to, all we can do is strive towards it.

All we can do is strive for what we believe is right and hope that we are striving in the right direction. Striving to emulate more closely the divine principles as laid down by our Creator.
