Q: Why is it that you believe modesty is related to love?
A: It is because when one does away with clothing, one does away with modesty. After doing this, one only sees their own flesh. One sees truth, and truth always frightens the individual. Modesty is, therefore, the protection of truth, or even the burying of truth.
Q: And what is that truth, or could you describe it?
A: All truths, be they many, reside upon the flesh. The surface of the land, in before there are inhabitants walking on the surface of that land, hide all things that were life, but are now dead, below it. Ashes, as the word follows, are beneath the earth, having adopted the role of fertilizer.
Q: Then, truth is the flesh, and how is it that people are frightened?
A: In the same way that people are frightened or humiliated by their own nudity in public, it is not so the same with the harlot. She will show her nudity out of a shameless endeavor. This occurs naturally as well in the woman who is married to her spouse. She shows nudity without any shame. Though, such fear is also there for the rapist and the girl, as the girl feels total shame and more, for such a terrible experience.
Q: What is above truth?
A: Love is above truth.
Q: Why is love above truth? Isn’t truth linked to love?
A: In understanding what I am saying, there are tyrants who find the truth to be so appealing, that they would laugh at it. In doing so, they seek to hide it. On the opposite end, there are those who are not tyrants, though when they see the truth, they weep before its presence. These are the people who reveal it. Weeping in either happiness or sadness, for tears also come when people laugh. Truth is hidden by love, in the same fashion as truth is recognized for how it appears. Truth is always recognized. Suspicion and paranoia are the seekers of truth.
Q: Though, why does a person ever hide truth? Why is it that love should hide truth from another person?
A: Out of kindness.
A: Kindness is the reason why someone who loves another may hide the truth out of love for them. Even when a tyrant recognizes what is truthful, he will hide it. He will hide out of a sinister sort of kindness against those he aims to fill with denial. As love is also a motivation, it motivates a true loving someone to also hide truth, so that the truth does not hurt truly hurt another. Have there been those who hide such truth, out of kindness for those who may become victims to a revolt, should the truth be discovered? Yes, it has continually happened. Although, it is because the word “kindness” is merely a slave at the command of either deception or honesty.
Q: And what is below truth?
Q: Death is below truth? How is this?
A: Reality is not the same thing as truth. Reality is merely clarity. Truth is awareness, and opposite from blindness and conformity. A skeleton is related to a pauper, because the pauper is most likely emaciated. Above that skeleton is flesh; that is truth. Above that truth is modesty; that is love, or clothing, or shelter, or a home.
Q: What do the impoverished desire?
A: What the impoverished desire differs from what someone who is not impoverished desires for the impoverished. Through recognition, the wealthy comprehend love, because they have a home, easily able to shelter a pauper. Though, the pauper will not recognize that love from that wealthy one, who might be selfless. They will, in fact, merely recognize that wealthy one, as wealthy, whose wealth could be spared.
Q: So what does one do for the impoverished?
A: You offer a pauper love, then he or she will not recognize it. They cannot eat love. They cannot drink love. They do not understand that, even as a metaphor. They will recognize flesh, because that is their yearning. Offer a pauper flesh, and they will recognize truth. For as both truth and love be a yearning, a pauper must sate themselves with flesh, before love.
