The Truth is Beautiful - Jina Wallwork
Reality is truth. Therefore, only a simplistic gaze would see a world that is either good or bad. There is always something to love and appreciate. The truth is complex and requires the space necessary to reveal its depths. Trust that you will be able to find the beauty in whatever words are spoken. When the truth arrives you must seek its beauty in order to see it clearly.
If you have faith in existence then you must know the truth is beautiful. How can lies be more attractive when they disguise the true nature of reality? A poisoned perspective of the world can lead to deceitful actions. This occurs when people see the cruelty that is present and struggle to identify anything greater. When I see a child cry I watch as a parent wipes their tears. I see the sorrow in a person's face and I watch the friends that stand beside them. Nothing is ever completely good or bad. Reality has many colors, so there is always something to appreciate. Childlike wonder can exist within a wise perspective, if you can focus on beauty even while navigating through times of difficulty. Emotional strength comes from our ability to feel gratitude, even when all seems lost. When anger requests that we only see the darkness we must actively seek the light. Where do you choose to place your gaze when sadness fills your mind. There is always something beautiful within every difficulty. We discover our connection to the people around us. When times are hard many friends will walk away, but others will hold us close. In times of difficulty we may not be the best of company, but still they choose to listen to our thoughts. They can still see the light within the relationship. There is magic within all things and it's just a matter of being open to its presence. Truth and reality are the same thing. They're complex and contain many attributes for you to explore. If you can't find something beautiful then you're not looking.
