Who decides that you look ugly ?

“I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down to us. Pigs treat us as equal” Winston Churchill

By deciding and calling somebody or something ugly…are we not questioning the Wisdom of Almighty?

Do ever the so called Ugly Persons think that he or she is ugly?

The whole world is obsessed with ‘beauty’

I can never know why people like what they like and decide to differentiate between ugly & beauty.

Maybe advertising beauty products is one of the reasons?  I am not sure. But one thing I am sure of obsession with being beautiful is a sure recipe for low self-esteem.

“No matter how ugly you are; there is always someone who sees his heaven in your eyes.”              M.F. Moonzajer

Appearance

Unfortunately we always mean ugly, in terms of one’s appearance.

Sadly we extend the notion of beauty to the animal kingdom too!

Can anything escape the human eye?

Now coming to the topic…

Are pigs ugly?

No, my friend.

All creations of God are beautiful.

Pigs are not ugly by appearance.

My guess is they are called ugly may be due to the garbage they eat or being fat and overweight and most importantly they enjoy playing in the dirty mud.

But we forget that that is what pigs are supposed to be.

“A pig has its own nature; no one can take that away from him, it can’t be changed, why blame the poor thing?”  Unknown 

Take home message

“Don’t look for a pretty face- it will turn old one day

Don’t look for good skin- it will turn wrinkle one day

Don’t look for a hot body- it will change one day

Don’t look for nice hair- it will turn white one day

Instead, look for a loyal heart- that will love every day”  unknown

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Empty

Can you recollect the Toilet roll saga?

Every mall worth the name in the city showed a sad picture of empty shelves.

Thanks to some fake news in the social media, courtesy coronavirus!

We never felt ashamed of becoming hoarders.

“Hoard food and it rots. Hoard money and you rot. Hoard power and the nation rots.”
Chuck Palahniuk

Instead of helping the needy, we became extremely selfish.

We threw all our values into the dust bin.

Is there misuse of the phrase ‘Survival of the fittest’?

Then why we complain about the shortage of essentials?

We all need spiritual guidance

“Food for the hungry cannot come from empty shelves.

Money to assist the needy cannot come from an empty purse.

Support and understanding cannot come from the emotionally starved.

Teaching cannot come from the unlearned.

And most important of all, spiritual guidance cannot come from the spiritually weak”   

Marion G Romney

Is possessing more better or possessing less?

My friend the answer is neither.

Read this quote

“The more we possess, the emptier we become. And in such a life-destroying dynamic, the solution is not to possess less. Rather, it’s to realize that we ourselves are a possession. And in surrendering ourselves to the God who desires to possess the whole of us, there is then no shred of emptiness left within us.”   Craig D. Lounsbrough

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
