In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful.

A Quote by Alice Malsenior Walker on perfection and acceptance

Everything is already perfect. And if you can accept that everything is already perfect, the imperfection is a part of the perfection. What's to worry about? [Laughs]

A Quote by Alice Malsenior Walker on faith, buddhism, attachment, labels, and now

I'm not [a Buddhist].  The whole point of anything that is really, truly valuable to your soul, and your own growth, is not to attach to a teacher, but rather to find out what the real deal is in the world itself. You become your own guide. The teachings can help you, but really, we're all here with the opportunity the reality of hereness. We all have that. I trust that...I'm just not interested in labels. I find all of them  constrictive.  They're hard to wear.  And they're hard to wear because we're always - hopefully - growing.

Yes, Mother.  I can see you are flawed.  You have not hidden it.  That is your greatest gift to me.
