There is a public dispute about some people took some nude photos on the top of a ‘sacred’ mountain and being blamed for the earthquake that has taken some lives and caused some damages.
Every living being is being born into this world naked.
When someone feels insulted or disrespected by something, it is the mind that projects the quality of ‘insult’ or ‘disrespectfulness’ onto certain names and forms that is responsible for the mind to feel being insulted or disrespected upon coming in contact with what the mind projects and believes as ‘insulting’ and ‘disrespectful’.
There are people who believe nakedness is something highly sacred. And there are people believe it is something truly insulting and disrespectful towards sacredness.
Whether the mind believes nakedness is something sacred or something insulting and disrespectful towards sacredness, it’s just something that the mind wants to believe what it is. Nakedness itself is neither sacred nor insulting towards sacredness.
If the mind is dirty, then nakedness meant something dirty for this being. But it is not what nakedness truly is.
If the mind is sacred, then nakedness meant something sacred for this being. But it is not what nakedness truly is.
Nakedness is just what it is.
Nakedness has no quality to be something ‘insulting’ or ‘disrespectful’, but coming from the mind thinks and believes that “being naked” is something ‘insulting’ and ‘disrespecting’, and it intentionally wants to be insulting or disrespectful by being naked to insult or disrespect others.
Something truly sacred or pure cannot be contaminated by any impurities.
If something claimed to be sacred can be offended and threatened by something that is ‘impure’, ‘insulting’ and disrespectful’, no one should go near to that thing that claimed to be sacred.
If the ‘God’ is ‘someone’ easily be offended and be threatened by impure and ignorant human being’s ignorant behavior, and will get very angry and will hurt those ignorant beings out of anger and hatred, what type of ‘God’ is this?
If a mind is not pure, full of evil and corrupted thinking and ill-will, this mind is being ‘disrespectful’ and ‘insulting’ within itself, towards itself, even if it puts on sufficient, respectful or decent clothing on the physical appearance.
Living in the world with so many different human beings with different thinking and beliefs, we should try to respect other people’s conditioned thinking and beliefs for what they think is respectfulness, appropriateness and sacredness.
That’s why some wise people try to stay away as much as possible from some other human beings to avoid unintentionally ‘insult’ or ‘disrespect’ certain people, and generate unnecessary tension.
Those who are pure will not have any interest to insult or disrespect anyone, nor be determined by other people’s intentional or unintentional insult or disrespectfulness.
