When you look at a flower, you may think it is either pretty or ugly, but the flower remains the flower. The reality of the flower is not affected by your perception and judgment. When you close your eyes, the flower does not disappear
We cannot say that the truth can be seen simply because we have eyes. We can only say that we have eyes so we can see things. The truth exists as it is. In order to “see” the truth, we must be open to it. The truth will go on without you, so do not miss the opportunity to see it clearly.
