Beauty Within

There is an insect
that lays its eggs
in the flowers of certain
fruits and vegetables.
When the fruit is ready,
it looks beautiful, but
when you cut it open,
it’s full of worms and rot.

Ruthlessly keep your soul
clean of envy, jealousy, and
greed, which eventually leaves
one full of decay, surrounded
by a false facade of beauty.

  1. If I may add, guard yourself from greed but also from judgment, fear, hatred, feelings of loss and remorse and you will always live in love. All negative emotions come from those six wounded forms. If we instead live in generosity, compassion, hope, passion, a spirit of receiving and joy we will never need to worry about our shell masking our true self.
