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 🙏🙏🙏

Do you Self-reflect?

What is self-reflection?

Cambridge Dictionary says

“The activity of thinking about your own feelings and behaviour, and the reasons that may lie behind them”

Do we ever think about our behaviour?

I doubt.

We all come with the same excuse that we have no time.

Nobody is interested in self-reflection. Why?

Everybody thinks that he or she is right in his or her own way.

All of us hate being criticized.

And your blood boils if you are criticized!

When one thinks, one is right always, then where comes the thought of self-reflection?

One is least bothered about the concerns of others.

Who is going to stop you?

My friend, remember …introspection helps you a lot.

I am not going into the details of the steps to be taken etc.

And what can be done?

Simple.
“The more reflective you are, the more effective you are.” Hall and Simeral

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
