A few flaws can be all right
Flaws are a simple fact of life. Everyone has them. No one can avoid them. No matter how hard a person tries, it is generally not possible for them to completely do away with all of their personal imperfections. However, Ilchi Lee asks, why should a person try so hard in the first place?
"Just because we learn the sun has black spots, can it suddenly not be the sun any more?" Lee queried. "And if even the sun has black spots, what's wrong with admitting we ourselves have some weak points? Just like the sun shining through the universe, we each have much to offer, despite our flaws. Do not be ashamed of your black spots."
Rather than running from flaws, individuals should learn to embrace them. They are what make a person unique and special. If everyone were exactly the same, the world would be an awfully boring place and there would be few new contributions to society.
Of course there a person can still have negative characteristics in their personality that could be improved upon. Ilchi Lee says these are the foundation of spiritual development. However, dwelling too long on these issues may be an exercise in futility that only interferes with a person's fulfillment.
