The beauty of a flower
We really do need beauty in our lives. Recently a well know and successful composer was interviewed about how he felt about events taking place around the world today. And how his country (not the U.S.A. although he spent quite a few years here) and the planet and its people might be improved upon.
His answer: We lack beauty today. He was referring first to architecture and then later on music and other things, where so much is commercialized or produced for a monetary value that beauty can become artificial, secondary or not there at all. I thought about this and decided he might have a point.
We do need beauty to thrive:
The beauty of nature
The beauty created by the human hand
The beauty of a sleeping child
The beauty of a well sung song
The beauty of a well spoken/written word
The beauty of a deed
The beauty of movement
The beauty you view or create
Each of us without exception, whatever our perceived shortcomings and real handicaps being dealt with daily have the ability to notice and produce beauty in the moment. This is true. Always.
Take the time to not only smell the rose, but also to view it from a perspective of beauty, your soul will thank you!
Thank’s for your visit, may your upcoming weekend flow with beauty and joy!
