Where is the perfection? It is all around you. How can you align yourself with this perfection? Simply be turning your attention towards it and recognizing that it is the way things are always supposed to be. What if I lose track? It is forgiving so that at any moment you may return to your focus and therefore experience the perfection as if you had never left it in the first place.
What does this chain of thinking tell us? It is that wisdom is resident inside of us and is there to be accessed at a moment's notice. Look at this passage from the Zohar.
Vayera Sec 76. Rabbi Aba opened the discussion with the text, "Who shall ascend into the mountain of Hashem? Or who shall stand in His holy place?" (Tehilim 24:3). Come and behold, no man is aware of the reason for his existence in the world. As the days pass by, they rise up and stand before the Holy One, blessed be He, as they were all created How do we know that they were created? Because it is written, "The days were created" (Tehilim 139:16).
The wisdom that is resident within us then is preexistent even to our knowledge or awareness of it. It is something that is a part of the "the way things work." Because of this we are given to first achieving that awareness of the inner creation of which we may only marvel at with awe. It is this inner creation that is taking place continuously. Just as the very background against which we live out our existence (the days that were created) is prior to our knowing, so too is the deeper meaning of our being beyond the scope of understanding and yet remains as an aspirant who constantly seeks the higher wisdom.
Zohar Vayera Section 78… "When a person is in this world, he is not aware of nor does he look for the reason he was created. For him, every day is considered as if it passes by in emptiness. And when the soul leaves this world, it does not recognize the path through which it is elevated, because the path that leads up, to the place where the luminous sublime souls shine, is not shown to all souls. After it departs from him, (it) follows the same way that person followed while in this world."
The Zohar is speaking about the soul and its mission towards awakening to the full awareness of the holiness and the unity of being. This holiness and unity are part of the pathways it must travel in this life and in the next. We travel in a state of unconscious being until gradually by stages become self aware.
The soul can be likened to a substance around which nothing may attach itself and yet in and of itself it may attach itself to anything. This is why the unaware soul cannot ascertain the pathways through which it travels. Now there is a caveat to all of this and that is that the soul as it becomes aware of its higher connection via Shekhinta it may then know the nature of the journey through which it travels. This seems to be a paradox and yet awareness operates under just these conditions of unconscious and conscious states of being. It is this balance of the unconscious and conscious that brings about the very perfection that never leaves you. B"H.
