question for Steve and others on lightworker purpose
Hi Steve, I have a question about something you mentioned in your blog. You said "It (your divine purpose) sees the world as already perfect, and it has no ego-based need to judge or fix people... I can express myself honestly while recognizing the divine perfection behind our apparent human imperfections. When I’m in this state, I’ve no concern for money or status. Even helping people isn’t of major concern. I’m just being my natural self, expressing my own joy and passion for life".
I don't understand the notion of the world as perfect, if we were were perfect then there'd be no need for personal development. Also how can helping people be of little concern for a lightworker? I thought helping others was the primary motivation and purpose of a lightworker? "I also thought that a lightworker helps fix others problems by working on themselves? There was that blog you did on working out problems with other people by determining what part of you they represented and forgiving that part of yourself. Why would we need to do this if there's divine perfection in everybodies imperfections? What would be the point of personal development? Lastly, one of the lightworkers charactersistics as I understand it, is they draw strength and enlightenment from recognising that all are part of a greater whole and by strengthening and deepening their connections with other people. Now I think expressing our natural self is great, but if our focus is only on being our natural self purely for the sake of self expression and not worrying about fixing ourselves and others, how would that lead to forming stronger bonds and with others and to deepening our connection with the greater whole?
Just kinda confused :-)
Thanks and best wishes

I'm not Steve, but I'm going to take a shot at this.
I hope that helps.

Maybe a different way of looking at it might be like this.
Imagine your 6 year old son climbs on his bike for the first time. He's got his helmet on, starts to pedal and goes, and goes and then he wipes out.
He says "Dad, I am no good at this!".
You say "No, son, you were perfect!"
Does that mean that your son is the worlds most perfect bicycle rider? No. It simply means he "perfectly" tried riding his bike for the first time.
Does that make a bit more sense when trying to understand the concept of "perfect"? It doesn't mean unchanging or finished.
