An example of imperfect love was discussed with William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council.

Questioner: Let us say I am sitting at home and I am watching the baseball game and my wife decides she wants to go get her hair cut. And I say, "Oh, I really don't want to do that," but I decide because of wanting to try to make an effort to be more spiritual I do what she wants but I am still not 100% happy with the situation. Is that a step forward or is that just sort of rationalizing around it and solving the problem without really improving?

The Council: Do you recall what we have said about perfect and imperfect love?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: Very few individuals are capable of perfect love, so the rest must settle for imperfect love, if nothing else. An act such as that, an attitude such as that, carried out with kindness, not having a negative attitude towards the individual because they interrupted your preferred activity, may be considered an imperfect act of love, but nonetheless it IS an act of love. Many times when an individual steps forwards and is responsible for an imperfect act of love, before it is all over with, the attitude has changed and the individual has transformed that into a perfect act of love. Does that answer the question?

Questioner: Yes, I believe it does. And if you have had years and years of not making the effort and you start to make more effort, then that will have a snowball effect and hopefully eliminate all of those negative responses or the karma for those negative responses?

The Council: Haven't we said many times that all karma can be corrected in this lifetime that each of you are experiencing? We will repeat it again. All karma can be corrected, answered for, justified (and when we say "justified" we are saying the correction, the word "justification" we are using it in the sense of the correction for karma), in one lifetime. True karma, whether it is the positive karma or the good karma, or the enslavement-type karma cannot always be corrected one act for another. In fact, if a soul chooses that form of self-restoration, then he only chooses a much harder path, a much more complicated path. Very few will set their aims with that type of situation. So living life with the proper attitude will bring all the opportunities to you in this lifetime to correct all the karma, regardless of how heavy it may be from previous lifetimes or even in many cases the present lifetime. Does that answer the question?

Questioner: Yes, it does. Thank you.

The Council: Each lifetime, the sole purpose is to make amends to yourself. And when we say that what we mean is correcting the harm and the disrespect and the indignities that you have perpetrated on yourself through the acts of self-centeredness and selfishness. You are living this life for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to clean up your house, but in order to do that it is necessary to help others clean up their house while you are working on yours. If you try to clean up your house simply by taking care of yourself, you have lost the game before you started because correcting karma you must interact with an individual or in some cases a number of individuals. Take for instance those of you who have commitments to other individuals. Why does that exist? Is it because one of you might be indebted to the other one karmically, so that with this commitment and the fulfillment of that commitment you are correcting your karma? Therefore, if you want to correct the karma and not add more to what you already carry, it is necessary to be completely faithful to that commitment.
