Reflections: Beauty


We walk on this earth with judgements and desires in our hearts that cause suffering. 

Some walk around feeling more beautiful than those around them. With pride and vanity they look down upon others they see as less fortunate. Others do not feel beautiful at all and walk on this earth with heads cowered down. Sadness, envy or worthlessness fill their hearts. In both situations, Life and Truth have departed their being, leaving behind empty vessels. 

This perceived 'lack' of beauty makes us feel different, less than and unhappy. The perceived 'possession' of beauty makes us elevate ourselves to heights that do not belong to us. Like Icarus, we may burn from our inflation and crash into the dark waters of the unconsciousness. But how can one measure something the is immeasurable? 

The remedy is to walk on this earth realizing that one is the most beautiful being that ever existed. One is to walk and look upon others as fellow beings who also are full of beauty. Without envy or pride, we can realize the bounty of beauty that Life offers. Beauty is something that exists as an entity in and of itself. It is not something that will give more or less of itself to people. It always gives itself in fullness, in its entirety, to each person whom it makes the most beautiful in their own unique way. 

Therefore I call upon all of us to walk in celebration as we gaze into the abyss of the limitless beauty that is within and around us.
