As we continue we go into 1:9 “Understanding that is based on untruth is imaginary.”
This Sutra teaches us to never justify a wrong action. Don’t feel like you need to defend yourself against accusations. Don’t allow temptation to make you feel as if you must offer up an explanation for situations when things happen to go wrong, which they will.
If you find yourself in the wrong, just let it be what it is, don’t allow your ego to take over. If you did something bad or wrong, simply just “own” it and there is no need to give stories or half truth explanations, just allow it be the mistake you made.
Seek the truth always, in all things. Try to do the right thing regardless to what others say or do. Ask for forgiveness and learn to forgive yourself, nothing more.
