    What is sadhana

    (spiritual practice)? Sadhana means effort. Effort for what? It is an endless effort to become one with the

    supreme nucleus. It is a ceaseless effort to obtain perfection from imperfection. Now, no movement in this

    universe is possible without encountering opposition. Wherever there is movement, there is opposition. The result

    of struggle against this opposition is called progress. The more one desires to proceed vigorously to the goal, the

    more one has to struggle against the opposition. Thus those who are adverse to struggle can never progress. They

    lag behind, what to speak of progress. That's why struggle is the essence of life.

    Sri Sri Anandamurtii
    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.

    - Buddha

    Who is to say that what "IS" is

    not perfection?

    I agree. When you put the "is" in

    caps, then I assume it is something beyond what we normally assume is real. You could say "imperfection" is only an

    illusion. But it sure puts up one heck of a fight. :-)
