Ugliness is just a perspective

Questioner: Earlier I would be scared of talking to you Rajee because I thought that Rajee is the other and he’s really going to show me all the ugliness in me and now I just want you to show it.

Rajee: You are giving me a very difficult job actually, because all I see in you is beauty and more beauty and more beauty and more beauty and I feel love and more love and more love and more love(smiles). You are giving me a very difficult thing to do to see ugliness in you. How I would do that? Because ugliness is just a perspective, not a reality, ugliness is just a perspective and resistance created out of that point of view that it should not be so, which multiplies actually. Inside us there is like a circles upon circles upon circles, one circle supporting another circle, and like this. Like, ‘All trees should be green’. Very innocent, apparently very innocent statement and it creates now ugliness in life. Any tree which is not green is ugly, you know what I mean? So how can I help you in removing that ugliness which does not exist? There is naturalness, not ugliness. Things are as they are inside you. I can help you relax in your Self, but don’t ask me to help you see the ugliness which does not exist. Or ask me to help you see that there is no ugliness inside you There is only divinity in different forms, in different ways. All of it actually, all of it is divine, the whole of you is divine, not just the presence or the stillness.
