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.
