Fear Of Shame Hides Behind Of Perfectionism

Are you a perfectionist? If you are, do you consider it to be a positive quality?

Perfectionism, despite maybe sounding positive, isn't worth pursuing. It's different thanstriving to be your best, and is unrelated to self-improvement. Rather, it revolves around the fundamental fear of shame.

Perfectionism, in short, is the belief that, if we look perfect and live and act perfectly, then we'll be able to shield ourselves from criticism, judgment or blame. This shield, in otherwords, is supposed to protect us against shame.

It is only when we begin to recognize that our true human potential goes far beyond leading successful personal and professional lives, that we realize the enormous importance of Kundalini awakening. Very few people realize that it is possible to live constantly in a state of totally expanded awareness and joy which we achieve when we become one with the Divine. It is only when Kundalini is awakened that we can begin to experience the infinite freedom of a human being. -Baba Muktananada
