一個漂亮的泥娃娃A Beautiful Clay Doll
In this mortal world, nobody can resist beautiful things. Among my many clients, I have yet to meet one who does not like beautiful things or people. I think that it is only natural as this world is still part of the realm of sensual desire. As the Chinese saying goes, lust does not overpower man but man surrenders himself to lust, and humans always fall for desires of form. However, never ever use this as an excuse or reason for there has never been a good ending for anyone, young or old, falling into the trap of lust since ancient times. Really, no one is spared the bad fate.
Lust is not the only thing we need to break free from!
When talking about the Chinese word, 色, countless sentient beings always thought that it only refers to the desire of lust for women. A large number of them think they can resist the lure of lust, therefore they are invincible. It is indeed quite a feat to be untempted by lust, but that is still a far way from being invincible. I have said previously, 色 is not just lust for women. Strictly speaking, it includes every form that we can see, hear and touch. That said, only when we are unmoved from all that we see, hear or touch do we truly succeeded in seeing through form.
Why did you marry her? Why should you marry her?
Among my male clients, there are very few who would not fall for beauty. Many of them would have dreams or secret fantasies, that they can marry a gorgeous girl with a pretty face, hourglass figure, mellifluous and honeyed voice, walk like a graceful swan and even with sweet-smelling breath! Wow, this is one perfect and flawless girl that you cannot find in this world. Maybe only in your dreams! Ha ha ha! That is why it is called day dreaming!
You marry a woman to start a family and live a life together regardless if she is pretty or ugly. Good looks, or the lack of it, should not have anything to do with marriage. I had a student whose wife always receives praises for her beauty, but the wife can not even ensure her house have sufficient drinking water daily. And this student, despite having a beautiful wife, always appeared distracted during lessons with me. The reason: distracted by other pretty girls walking past.
You may have married a wife who is as beautiful as a fairy, but if you do not care about her emotional well-being, she is just another pretty clay doll of yours
