I know I write about Beauty a lot. I can’t seem to help it. I never really know what I’m going to write about when I sit down to write on this blog, and yet Beauty, in some way, shape, or form, always slips itself in there and makes itself known.
I think it’s because I’ve come to learn that no matter what ridiculous gyrations my mind/ego may be attempting to go through in an effort to make itself feel better, it is always in a single moment of surrender, that the feeling of Beauty instantly pours in and stills everything, filling my heart with the silent peace of God.
I don’t have to physically see something beautiful, or touch something beautiful, or hear something beautiful. I don’t have to be looking at a glorious piece of art, or walking through a field of wildflowers, or making love, to experience the feeling of Beauty.
I just need to surrender…let go…fall…
That’s not to say that all of these physically beautiful experiences don’t help us to remember how magnificent the feeling of Beauty is….they are just not necessary if say, you are right in the middle of a truly adverse life situation, one that in truth, could not be otherwise.
Usually the last thing most of us will do when feeling threatened with adversity is allow ourselves to surrender into Beauty, or accept the fact that everything is happening exactly as its supposed to for our benefit and evolution, including all of our negative feelings about it.
Because the threatened ego is addicted to one thing, and one thing only.
And a surrendered mind, even if it’s only for a moment, cannot suffer…not in that moment…not when it’s feeling Beauty.
I love the quote by Eckhart Tolle that says, “suffering is necessary until you realize it is unnecessary.”
When we can truly let go to the moment – especially those that we label as adverse, ugly, or frightening – then we are no longer two.
We are no longer divided.
We are no longer split.
We are no longer experiencing duality.
We are P-R-E-S-E-N-T.
And in this Presence, the wisdom of all of life becomes available to us.
And the still, small voice said,
“There is available to you an energy so vast, so profoundly beautiful, so entirely unaffected by the dramas your ego mind clings to for such dear life. It is invisible and unavailable to you to the degree that you do not acknowledge its existence as You…the highest aspect of You…You as the Divine. The more you choose to let go to this truth, the more of this Divine You-ness will flow into your life. There is nothing it cannot hold in its beauty and love. Nothing is too big, or too painful, or too ugly for it to embrace, but you must surrender to it, give your self over to it, dissolve into it, so that it may blend and become one with you. The healing balm you so long for to bring ease to your woes is already with you…as You. Let it in…let it in…let it in…”
