You Were Made Perfect

You were made perfect.

Everything in nature, in its original state, is perfect.

But somewhere along the way, it’s slowly become corrupted

Our own nature has become corrupted

Whether it’s the processed foods we eat, how we move our bodies, or indeed how we choose to live our lives

Somewhere along the way it’s all become a little distorted

Our view of the world has become distorted

Contaminated by unnecessary excess, distracted, being pulled in different directions

Moving us further and further away from ourselves

Further away from what is good and whole.

Progress has indeed been made in many areas, there’s no denying that.

But now that we live longer lives, now that we have comfort and security

Reality is, it’s done nothing to unsettle our spirit.

Where once our bodies may have been undernourished

Now it’s our souls

We seem to have it all, but yet, there is sense that we have nothing, like there's something missing

Always looking for more.

We seem to be more connected than we’ve ever been,

Yet we feel disconnected, longing to be Loved.
