As you live Deeper in the Heart,
the Mirror gets clearer and cleaner.
and we are forever misty-eyed for the water passing by…….may the bridge ease our dual natures……
What beauty have you seen today? Have you watched the sunrise? Have you listened to good and beautiful music? Have you observed beautiful flowers? There are many places to find beauty- in people, in nature, and in things. Wherever we are, we are able to perceive beauty if we are looking for it and are tuned in to the idea of beauty.
There is order, balance, harmony, and great beauty all around, but beauty is an inside job- inner awareness leads to outer perception. Beauty is a living, vibrant force- your passport to a more joyous life. You are an avenue, an instrument of beauty. Let the beauty of God and God’s creation be expressed through you and in your life.
It doesn’t interest me if there is one God
or many gods.
I want to know if you belong or feel
if you can know despair or see it in others.
I want to know
if you are prepared to live in the world
with its harsh need
to change you. If you can look back
with firm eyes,
saying this is where I stand. I want to know
if you know
how to melt into that fierce heat of living,
the center of your longing. I want to know
if you are willing
to live, day by day, with the consequence of love
and the bitter
unwanted passion of your sure defeat.
I have heard, in that fierce embrace, even
the gods speak of God.
