You Are Not Complete Without Flaws




I love reading a passage in a book that turns the light bulb on! In this powerful paragraph on page 192 of Deepak Chopra‘s inspiring book, The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire, he beautifully illustrates why recognizing our flaws is a wonderful thing.






The traits we see most clearly in others exist most strongly in our selves. When we can see into the mirror of relationship, then we can begin to see all of our selves. To do this, we need to be comfortable with our ambiguity, to embrace all aspects of our selves. At a deep level, we need to recognize that we are not flawed simply because we have negative traits. No one has only positive traits. Recognizing that we have negative traits simply means that we are complete. And in that completeness we gain greater access to our universal, nonlocal selves.

Deepak Chopra


It is so true that the traits we see most clearly in others are flections of those that we see most clearly in our selves. People who are habitually critical of others are most critical of themselves. If you tend to see the worst in people, you also tend to see the worst in yourself.

Wise words.

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.

    How true! I can truly relate to this post because in the past I was always critical of myself thatt’s why I’m also critical of other people’s wrongdoings in my point of view. Later on, as I grew up I was able to accept that nobody’s perfect and that you musn’t judge someone for one single fault he had done or one single negative trait you notice because you didn’t personally knew what that person had to go through.

  2. Phil Bolsta Says:

    How true indeed, mel! If we dismissed somebody for one single fault, there would be nobody left for us to be with, including ourselves! It would be an awfully lonely existence.
