 Xiong Ling: how to face the cruel truth

The inescapable truth in reality

The meaning of human life may be the pursuit of truth. Otherwise, how could there be life questions like who am I, where am I from, where should I go that can never find the ideal answer? How can there be such persistence as the South China tiger incident? Truth, perhaps, is the driving force of human behavior.

It is the particularity of truth that people desire and fear truth. Human nature is good, and is born to love the truth, goodness and beauty, and to refuse hypocrisy and cruelty. If there is a cruel truth in life, it must be that the true, the good and the beautiful are covered by too much hypocrisy and hurt by cruel attacks. Does this mean that human nature is evil?

How to face the cruel truth

If you ask, what kind of mentality should we have in the face of the cruel truth? How to make a rational and objective choice? This is a more difficult question. Because the cruel truth itself is truth and existence, how can we let the existence not exist? Its like facing a child and asking his mother, can you not be the mother who gave birth to me? The same problem. When the earthquake comes, you cant order the earthquake to stop. When your family member suddenly becomes worldly, you cant expect her to survive in an instant

Since the reality is merciless, the truth is cruel, and misfortune is encountered by us, we should say that we have no choice, or we have to choose to accept. However, whether they can be forced to accept depends on people. Some people may collapse when they encounter the cruel reality and can no longer face any reality. Therefore, in the face of the cruel truth, we need to have a rational and receptive attitude. Even though we think its easy to talk about it and hard to do it, we still have to do it (its realistic and cruel to do it in itself)

With a mentality of being forced to accept, none of us would like to see the cruel facts, but when the cruelty comes, we have no way out. In addition to defensive response, we also think about welcoming it in our hearts. In the face of cruelty, thinking that it hit me, we need to have the attitude of being forced to accept, that is, not to deny it, not to hate it, not to resist it. Then, the inevitable negative emotions of cruelty will soon pass away.

When we encounter cruelty, we will certainly suffer, but we will not be defeated by cruelty. We can choose to deal with the cruel facts and wipe the painful scars with tears.

In fact, the best defense against cruel facts is to welcome. As the saying goes, the best defense is good offense - respond.

Rationality is Wangs, and rationality is respect for objective truth. In the face of cruelty, whether we can achieve a reasonable defense or a beautiful attack, and whether we can accept the cruel facts with sadness is absolutely the ability of rationality. In the face of the cruel facts, although people rationally think that they should face and accept it, they cant. We understand that human feelings (sensibility) cant accept cruelty, and the reason why sensibility doesnt accept cruelty doesnt need a reason. The power of sensibility is stronger than tiger, and reason often loses to sensibility. If people always have the puzzle of why I know what to do but I cant do it, its just imaginary rationality, not real rationality. Real rationality refers to a persons tolerance, compliance and grasp of the objective truth, without distortion, denial and concealment.

The so-called rational ability includes objective analysis ability, judgment ability, decision-making ability, and the ability to control emotion and behavior rationally. If people lack of rationality or always use things sensibly, they are easy to be hurt by setbacks.

Therefore, if you have a good attitude to face the cruel truth, it is necessary to cultivate your rational ability, which requires long-term cultivation of personality and mind.

With psychological energy, psychological energy includes peoples endurance, acceptance, loving heart and forgiveness mind.

If we can deal with the cruel facts calmly, we must have the psychological energy to resist setbacks. As far as human beings are concerned, there will always be contradictions and things that are not transferred by our subjective will; as for the truth of life, there is always a cruel existence of evil human nature that we do not like. We can see from animal world. If we can be aware of these, and choose to face and accept these existence from the behavior, we will not be hurt by setbacks (or become patients), which is the embodiment of rationality and psychological ability.
