Ugliness is the only guardian angel a woman has.
~ Yiddish Proverb

How can ugliness be guarding a woman? That is so weird.

What is ugliness to you?

My feet. Nowadays, I find my feet really ugly. They’re looking really old. They’re wrinkled, full of veins and discoloured. And sometimes even painful.

Alright. Even though you think your feet are ugly, do they still serve their purpose?

Yes, of course.

Do they guard you against being a handicap and not able to walk?

Like I said, yes.

Then that is exactly what that proverb means. Your feet, which you find ugly, are your guardian angels, which are guarding you from not being able to walk.

I guess so. But men have feet too, you know.

Yes, they do. But do they find their feet ugly as much as women do?

No, I don’t think so. Most beauty products are targeted at women. There’s one product that you apply and keep on for a few hours, and then wait for a couple of days—the skin will start drying up and you can peel off the outer layer, revealing the layer below which looks as soft as baby’s skin. I’m thinking of ordering.

What’s stopping you?

Fear. Fear that it’s all just hype. I’m thinking, killing off the upper layer of your skin is really drastic. My feet may even have a bad reaction to it. You know, like an allergic reaction.

But you won’t know that until you try.

True. There are a lot of things I want to change in the way I look. Not just my feet. But they aren’t my priorities right now.

What are your priorities, dear one?

This. This is my priority. These words. This conversation with you and what I’m putting out there into the world.

Why is that your priority? Why is putting out these words into the world your priority?

It’s my purpose. I’m a messenger for The New World. It’s my job.

A non-paying job.

I get paid plenty! I have peace in my soul. That’s more than I can ask for.

Glad to hear it.

Anyway. So why is ugliness the only guardian angel a woman has?…Wait…I think I got it.

What have you got?

The explanation—Women’s beauty, including inner beauty which is love, can only exist when ugliness exists. Without ugliness, also known as fear, how will we see the beauty of women in this world? What I can’t explain is, why only women? Don’t men have beauty too? Don’t men have love too that must be guarded?

Of course, my dear. But with the state of the world right now, is men’s beauty showing up?

Most of the time, no. That’s why we still have wars.

 

Feelings Vs Actions

…That’s judging, my dear.

Sorry.

Allow the soul to walk its path. That’s what freedom is all about.

Nothing else I can do, can I?

You can be frustrated and angry. Feelings are more powerful than what you are doing, do you know that?

You’re kidding, right? How can feelings be more powerful than actions?

Remember that time when you were so angry with your husband that you hit a clothes hanger against a wall and it broke? And then your children began crying because of the situation?

Yeah. I had to carry Danielle to calm her down.

It took you a while to calm down too. Even after he left you were still angry. That is a good example of showing that feeling is more powerful than action. The time it took for that clothes hanger to break was only a second. It’s the same if you were to break someone’s neck.

Yeah. Like Edward Norton in American History X.

Yes. His character’s anger and belief of discrimination were so powerful that it landed him in prison. His character was brought up to believe in a certain belief that brought those kind of feelings to the forefront. Hence, imprisoning his true self. Literally imprisoned. In truth, an action may only take at the most a few hours. Or at the least a couple of seconds.

There have been victims, let’s say, of an earthquake, that have survived being buried for a few days. That’s sustaining an action for a few days, isn’t it? So isn’t action more powerful? As compared to feeling something? 

When you say action there, you’re saying being buried alive?

Yes.

If he was buried alive, he wouldn’t be moving that much now, would he? My point is, your physical body has only got years in terms of being alive on the earth. As for, let’s say, the feeling of anger (like with Edward Norton’s character breaking that man’s jaws and neck), it is so powerful that it has been made into a movie. And countless movies, books, art, etc., have been made and will be made about the anger of humanity with humanity. Your actions dissipate into oblivion as soon as it is executed. But feelings of anger resonate through time and space. Repeated and enacted over and over again in your world via millions and millions and billions of people by different ways and means of actions. It is feelings of anger also known as fear, that fuels actions. It is feelings of love that fuel all other actions that are constituted in love. Feeling is of the soul. The soul is forever. Your physicality lasts as long as each lifetime. Which you may one day not choose anymore. Your physicality has a limit because your soul can unchoose physicality if it so chooses. Your actions are of the physical. Therefore your actions too have a limit. The question is – does humanity wish to reach that limit in anger and resentment and in fear instead of with peace, love and joy? Will you rejoice with love and joy if we so choose that this realm should end? Or will humanity die from its own suffering?

God, that’s depressing. 

Isn’t it? But here’s something to rejoice about – Your soul is forever. I Am your soul. I Am forever. You cannot not be forever because your soul exists for the sake of existing. Your soul simply is. Feelings are of the soul. Hence, feelings are more powerful than actions.

So are You saying feeling angry can be forever? That a soul can come back in another lifetime and still be angry about what he was angry about in the previous lifetime?

Then why do you think you still have wars and atrocities? The soul chooses to come back in order to finish unfinished business. The soul is never satisfied until it has accomplished what it has set out to do in this world. And you have no idea what your soul will choose until it has chosen it. But now that awareness is in your world and some of you are no longer sleepwalking in the untruths about who you really are, isn’t it time to choose what you wish to feel in this lifetime? Because you have a choice. You always have a choice. You can choose to bring your anger closely guarded within your heart to your deathbed, or you can bring love, compassion, empathy and forgiveness instead. Your body shall wither in the earth to be seen no more. As for your soul, if it has absorbed indelible resentment and anger, I assure you, you will choose to come back with those feelings because it has unfinished business.

Wait a sec. By the sound of that, it’s like You’re using fear to make us choose love.

No, dear one. I Am using the truth.
