UGLY

Something to consider when seeking what is real or true…

The truth is not always pretty or pleasant. Sometimes it is ugly and hard and unpleasant. Do not shy away from the truth because it has an undesirable appearance to yourself or others.

You do not owe anyone a justification for the way reality or the truth is.

You do not owe yourself a justification for the way reality or the truth is.

Let it be.

Truth is not defined by beauty or angelic appearances. If it is ugly, let it be ugly. Do not apologize for it or excuse it.

Practice Non-Violence

Restricting, restraining, denying, or rejecting what is real or true because you perceive it, or worry others will perceive it as ugly is a form of violence towards yourself and the universe (that reality which exists beyond all illusion).

Fear of ugly breeds this form of violence. Our fear stems from our attachment to the assumption that to be good, a thing must also be pleasant or nice or pretty.

But the truth is good. And the truth can also be ugly.

If inclined to restrict, restrain, deny or reject because a truth or reality is ugly, try meditating on your attachment to the assumption that to be good, a thing must also be pleasant or nice or pretty.

Meditation questions:

Why do I feel this way?

Can I let go of this attachment?

I can let what is real or true be ugly
