We spend so much time looking for beauty – in our friends, our work, our possessions, our physical appearance – but where does beauty truly reside? In our mind and only there if it is true beauty you seek.
Beauty is a choice and it is a deeply personal one. Are we true to our true views or do we let others tell us what beauty really is? Do we do what is popular versus what feels right?
The truth here is that beauty exists everywhere we choose to see it and in every interaction, every sentient being, every plant, every rock but only if it exists within us first. We lose so much of what is beautiful with our critical thinking and analysis. We choose to categorize everything to keep order in our lives. Why impose order when our world has only one constant and that is change?
Embrace the chaos around us, see the beauty in every blade of grass, each floor tile, every stop light.
True beauty has a strong vibration that is subtle. Feel for it in all of your interactions, strive to believe in what is wonderful, forget the pain, the disappointments, what happened to you yesterday.
Those that can see beauty of every moment actually live those moments. These people can see the now, can hear the sounds of those who would help us, can feel the vibration of beauty around us. Many of these people are children.
Don’t learn soo much that you forget how to think.
In our world today, the successful are those that are beautiful, have possessions, have power, have notoriety, have adoration. We give ourselves away when we ignore the beauty that stares us in the face to look at the beauty others want us to see to serve their ends.
If you believe this is easy or simple to do, you are mistaken. To see beauty, you must fight yourself first unless you are enlightened enough to have kept the simplicity and sight of a child. This is a battle for your soul, do not treat it lightly. You will need every tool you possess, all the love you can muster, and belief that your soul is meant to see all the wonder our world willingly show us. Stand up for yourself, believe in the wonder of a child and the love you have for those most precious to you and fight.
