InTension of Beauty

Everything that happens to us in the world passes into us. It has become part of the inner temple of the soul and it can never be lost. This is the art of the soul: to harvest your deeper life from all of your experience.

Beautiful words from the late John O'Donohue, an excerpt on his topic on Beauty.

Life presents opportunity to dive deep into the well of soulful existence. To focus on the beauty of you, and humanity, in the whole scheme of reality, in all of it's truth. Glory and Gory. In abundant clarity.

Moving in you, and through you, in deep and meaningful ways.

Enhancing and challenging a soulful experiential eternity for you and those around you.

And in knowing that the soul is beauty, is always seeking beauty, and is comfortable in the company of beauty, creates the opportunity for enhancing the wellspring of beauty and wellbeing that enhances your existence.

And yet, the world view, and your view of you, can often seem much less beautiful, as things confront you, and as you observe the world around you, and that which is presenting to you.

Life can present a continuum of tensions. Sadness beside Joy. Love beside Indifference. Destruction alongside creation. Tightropes of positive action and depressive recession. Battling the head and heart in decisions. And other many tensions to mention. As cycles are turning.

Harvesting the deeper essence is an important part of the process toward finding the inner beauty of your reality, and decision-making, wherever it is in the wheel, for you, rotating.

Feeling, and freeing, your way toward a continuing and sustaining process of greater elation, joy generation, soulful presence, and enlightening, and consequently what you are contributing, becomes more motivating as fruits of inner process for harvesting. 

Balancing the subtle tensions, as your soul continues the journey of unfolding.

And noticing, more readily, appreciatively, and embracingly, John's further words that...

'We continue in our days to wander between the shadowing and the brightening, while all the time a more subtle brightness sustains us',

And, I would add, maintains us, and inspires us, to continue on our way.

Practicing the intention and value of beauty, brightening, and enlightening, us, and the world around us, each and every day.

Much Love
