It’s been a little while now that I look
at the strangers around me.
On the street, in the subway, in the shops,
I look at their face, their eyes
and I only see beautiful people.
With their own features
and their own feelings,
but I find them all, always, beautiful.
Maybe because, I am in peace with the monsters within.
Maybe because the monsters in me have been humanized.
What we have within we see without.
The way we think is the way we understand.
A mind trained to judge, judges himself first and sometimes he comes short, sometimes he is above everyone else. It functions this way on the outside too, it distinguishes people to more beautiful or uglier than him. Dressed with better or worse taste than him, having more or less weight. Beauty is a utopia for the judgmental mind… there is always a flaw… even a perfect sunset will be ruined by mosquitoes, it doesn’t last long, it would be seen better at a different place or with different company…
A guilt-prone mind seeks for the error in his own and in other people’s behavior and when you seek for the flaw… you will find it… And when you think that you have found it, with the behaviors that you embrace you will multiply it… the ugliness around will also multiply as well… Now the world is filled with unpleasant people, right? Then, all you have to do is become impudent…to cover your guilt, even better if you could eradicate it, isn’t that what everybody else does?… and eventually you end up making the greatest contribution to the ugliness of the world.
The criticism and guilt of the mind are two basic reasons for someone to avoid self-awareness. But even if someone starts the process of knowing himself, they are often the reason he does not deepen his understandings.
