They say beauty is “in the eye of the beholder,” but the truth is it’s in the Heart. It is an inner understanding, reflected for others to observe. It is the way we treat ourselves, and the way we treat others. It is a manifestation of the love-connection that intertwines us all. It is an expression of One-ness.
When I say ‘everything is beautiful’ I am acknowledging the perfect process of creation. Everything that is, was once something else, and will at some time become another. This is the beauty of Life. Being beautiful involves accepting this process for yourself, for everyone else, and for everything that is unfolding in the world.
Jesus provided a shorthand explanation for all of the commandments, lessons, and parables of the religious teachings prior to his time that explains the foundation of his message to the world: “Love God with all your heart, all your mind, and all your strength. Love thy neighbor as yourself.”
This is being beautiful.
I have dedicated this blog to the Beautiful ones. May all beings be beautiful.
