Life Is To Be Whole
Once a circle missed a wedge. The circle wanted to be whole, so it went around looking for its missing piece. But because it was incomplete and therefore could roll only very slowly, it admired the flowers along the way. It chat封成瑾ted with worms. It enjoyed the sunshine. It found lots of different pieces, b紫花玉簪ut none of them fit. So it left them all by the side of the road and kept on searching. Then one day the circle found a piece that fit perfectly. It was so happy狐妖小红娘之尘雅缘. Now it could be whole, with nothing missing. I佛说做人t incorporated the missing piece into itself and began to roll. Now that it was a perfect circle, it could roll very fast, too fast to notice the flowers or talking to the worms. When it realized how different the毛坦厂中学,双语美文，生命在于无缺,特种兵之利刃出鞘 world seemed when it rolled so quickly, it stopped, left its found piece by the side of the road and rolled slowly away.
The lesson of the story, I suggested, was that in some strange sense we are m十一武士ore whole when we are missing something. The man who has eenimemverything is in some ways a poor man. He will never know 万举油温机what it feels like to yearn, to hope, to nourish his soul with the dream of something better. He will never know the experience of having someone who loves him gi毛坦厂中学,双语美文，生命在于无缺,特种兵之利刃出鞘ve him something he has always wanted or never had.
There is a w斯克提斯之眼holeness about tscp096扼杀试验he person who has come to terms with his limitations, who has been brave enough to let go of his unrealistic dreams and not feel like a failure for doing so. There is a wholeness about the man or woman who has learned that he or she is strong enough to go through a tragedy and survive, who can lose someone and still feel like a complete person.

Life is not a trap set for us by God so that he can condemn us for failing. Life is not a spelling bee, where no matter how many words you've gotten, you're disqualified if you make one mistake. Life is more like a baseball season, where even the best team loses one－third of its games and even the worst team has段祖连 its days of brilliance. Our goal is to win more games than we lose.
When we accept that imperfection is part of being human, and when we can continue rolling through life and appreciate it, we will have achieved a wholeness that others can only aspire to. That, I believe, is what God asks of us not "Be perfect", not "Don't even make a mistake", but "Be whole."
