Deep beauty

Every life, at any time, in whatever situation, carries within it a deep beauty. Far removed from the outer turmoil and drama, lives pure, miraculous beauty.

Even when ignored for years, it waits, watches, learns, grows more beautiful. Any moment you surrender what doesn’t really matter, that beauty draws closer to the surface.

Intertwined with deep beauty is your truth, your ideal vision of life. Every sadness, disappointment, pain, you feel because of its distance from that ideal.

As you bridge that distance, you experience peace, sublime joy, gratitude for all you have and all that is. Your capacity to love grows stronger, more generous and confident.

Your deep beauty makes no logical sense, and you’ll never fully understand it. Yet you cannot ever deny it.

And if you allow it, your deep beauty can increasingly fill life with its value. Moment by moment, know it, appreciate it, and allow it.
