This third video clip from the interview with Imam Feisal deals with the perplexing mandate, or expectation 'accepted' by humankind: We are imperfect beings who, because or our spirit nature, are capable of striving for perfection. Rather than leave this seemingly insurmountable obstacle as a reason for defeatism, Imam Feisal points out that this situation calls upon us to ponder some of the givens of our situation, our limitations, our gifts, etc. We are left to decide whether we will “minister to the needs of our physiology” or “minister to the needs of our spirit nature” as the highest priority in life. At such a crossroads, the choosing of one path over the other will determine the trajectory of our success or failure in our divine mandate.
