Wabi Sabi — The art of embracing imperfection
Hello!! this is a snippet of my thoughts; if you found this an exciting read, I would appreciate sharing it with a friend or two.
According to: omaritani.com
- Wabi is about recognizing beauty in humble simplicity. It invites us to open our hearts and detach from the vanity of materialism so we can experience spiritual richness instead.
- Sabi is concerned with the passage of time, the way all things grow, age, and decay, and how it manifests itself beautifully in objects. It suggests that beauty is hidden beneath the surface of what we actually see, even in what we initially perceive as broken.
We are all victims of perfectionism; at some point, we all thought we could wait for the perfect time to create the ideal product, craft, skill, or art. But what we learned along the way is there is no such thing as a perfect product, art, work, or any form of the contribution we want to make.
Beauty is imperfect, and art can be chaotic; humans are imperfect, but the important thing that matters is the willingness to try. Trying to do better, to make amends, a contribution from the angle of generosity, be because matter how hard we try, all we can do is our best, a,d doing our best is what matters.
