Wabi Sabi – Nothing is Perfect
“Nothing is eternal
Nothing is complete
Nothing is perfect”
– The Art of Impermanence –
Our life has to have meaning and if we are not perfect, we must be doing something wrong, don’t you think isn’t it?
It is typically Western to give meaning to everything. To think about issues, to ask questions, to want to explain, to become better, to improve ourselves, to have a feeling of importance, that we are doing something with our life. We want to mean something, we want to develop our talents and to get the best out of it….
The term Wabi Sabi is of Japanese origin and it fills in meaning completely differently. Wabi stands for space; Sabi stands for time.
Wabi Sabi is not a fixed characteristic, it is an underlying attitude towards life. It stands for soberness and simplicity, of the essence of things, but also for a way of life.
That you can accept yourself with all your peculiarities and character flowsflaws. It also makes yourself you kindmild towards others.
