Why are we capable of ugly thoughts?  Clearly such thoughts are safely tucked inside our own minds, never to broach the physical reality that can cause suffering in others.  But are they?  Is it possible such cruel thoughts slip into our physical reality in subtle ways we are blind to?  And yet I find these thoughts enter my mind as considerations, possibilities and something of a guard so as to prepare my heart because the cruelest reality I have experience are the ones unanticipated.  And yet, I wonder what a day would be like if I were free of such ugly thoughts, would that also be an unanticipated experience?
