Infinite Perfections

It's one thing to say there's always tomorrow--to start again, or clean up, or seek forgiveness--more time to acquire virtues on this earth.

'Course, we all do leave these bodies behind one day...

To imagine an infinity of opportunities to perfect ourselves...

Amazing !

You may want to read the "Disclaimer concerning the word, "Man"....

"There is no other being higher than a perfect man. But man when he has reached this state can still make progress in perfections but not in state because there is no state higher than that of a perfect man to which he can transfer himself. He only progresses in the state of humanity, for the human perfections are infinite. Thus, however learned a man may be, we can imagine one more learned. Hence, as the perfections of humanity are endless, man can also make progress in perfections after leaving this world."
