We become all those things we suppress.
Whatever makes you feel shy, you hide it deep within yourself, in the unconscious. This goes deeper into your being, circulates inside your blood and guides you from behind the scenes.
If you want to suppress something, suppress something beautiful. Never suppress something that you are ashamed of, for anything you suppress goes deeper and anything you express will evaporate in the sky.
So, what makes you be ashamed, express it so that you finish with it. What is beautiful, keep it as a treasure in you so it continues to affect your life.
However, we do the opposite. What is beautiful, we express it. In fact, we express it too much. We express more than it is there. You keep saying “I love, I love, I love” and you may not mean it that much.
You always suppress anger, hate, jealousy, possessiveness, and slowly find that you have become everything you have suppressed. And then, deep guilt appears.
You don’t have to be ashamed of anything. Everything is perfect as it is. There can be no more perfect world than this one. This moment is the highlight of the whole existence. Nothing can be more perfect, so just relax and enjoy it.
Open your doors in the sun, in the air, and in the sky. Then, a new fresh air will always pass through you, new rays of the sun will always permeate you. Allow the flow of existence to penetrate you. Never be a dead end road. Otherwise, only death and dust are gathered. Just give up every perception of shame and never judge anything.
