A misty sunrise drifts into your senses on salt air. You ride on this soft breeze into another, gentler life. The wet firm sand of the ocean’s edge caresses your toes as you walk along the shore. You see a small flower; a wonder of nature; so beautiful. It grows between some rocks and it makes you happy.
You are in awe of everything. Your heart swells and you realize, “this moment is beautiful, life is beautiful… I am beautiful.”
And it is true, because there is no way you can recognize beauty and feel these emotions unless you have this same beauty within you.
Nature is like that. You cannot identify and appreciate anything outside of yourself that does not also exist within you. How can you possibly know what beauty is, unless you have this inner beauty as a reference?
The truth of this is undeniable, and so you must conclude…
You are beautiful
What a wonderful discovery this is, to know that you are beautiful.
But you might be thinking, “What the heck is this guy talking about?” “What does this have to do with my life?”
You could of course choose to exclude beauty from your vision. That walk along the ocean would then only sting your nostrils with the foul smell of kelp and rotting fish, punctuated with the annoying screech of scavenging seagulls.
Your vision can just as easily throw you into an ugly life, as it can render your life a thing of beauty.
It is up to you to determine how your life will look, and how it will feel to you. And it helps to know from the beginning — that beauty resides within you.
Why do you deny your inner beauty?
Do you renounce your beauty as a human being because you are ashamed of owning it? Do you feel guilt over your ability to see and feel depravity, ugliness, and aggression? Do you feel this tarnishes your beauty?
You cannot diminish or obliterate beauty. Beauty is intrinsic to the order of existence. When you move in accord with that order, you see beauty in everything because that is the nature of life. When you are at odds with yourself and with life, you see and live a lack of beauty and order. You are outside of nature’s loop.
Despite its pull on your mind, ugliness and depravity is not within you. Power is within you, and you will empower whatever you set before your mind’s eye. If you focus on the truth of life — the beauty and the order — you can work wonders and become a genuinely successful human being.
If you do not own this inner beauty of yours and take action to uncover it, you will empower its lack, and you will move further away from your nature.
Choose wisely then.
Acknowledge the beauty within you
If you do nothing else of significance today, please make room in your mind, and in your heart, for some beauty. It is all around you today and every day. Look with an open heart and you will find it.
Know that every time you see and feel beauty in the world, you are seeing and feeling a representation of the immense beauty that resides in your spirit — a reflection of the beauty within you.
You are truly beautiful.
Over to you now…
