The Call to BEAUTY.
I am contemplating the meaning of BEAUTY this morning. This new moon rings in the most magical of times in our world. This is a high manifestation period so that means taking time out of your day to contemplate what you want to see in your world. Thanking the Divine in yourself, as if your choices already appear in your reality, is the ticket to these and all future times.
Getting back to BEAUTY, I want to quote from an article by the great Irish poet John O’Donohue That I found in an old edition of Kosmos magazine.
“The human soul is hungry for beauty; we seek it everywhere- in landscape, music, art, clothes, furniture, gardening, companionship, love, religion and ourselves. No one would desire not to be beautiful. When we experience the Beautiful, there is a sense of homecoming. We feel most alive in the presence of the Beautiful, for it meets the needs of the soul.”
“In the experience of beauty we awaken and surrender in the same act. We find that we slip into the Beautiful with the same ease as we slip into the seamless embrace of water; something ancient within us already trusts that this embrace will hold us.”
“When we allow ourselves under the persuasion of beauty, our encounter gains integrity, and integrity is the heart of integration, which is the gift we most desperately need now.”
“The neglect and the repression of beauty leads to disaster.”
“A culture that denies beauty sows the seeds of its own destruction.”
This describes the power and magic of this new moon cycle. This is an important article. If you would like to read this entire exquisite piece, please look for it online in the Fall/Winter 2004 issue of Kosmos. www.kosmosjournal.org
We, as artists of the sacred, are needed now more than ever. We must step forward without hesitation. Plan our emergence. Bring BEAUTY to the forefront of our global village once more. Usher in the pristine waterways, the bountiful landscapes, the clear skies and the fires of integrity that burn deep in our hearts. We must demonstrate that we, the human race, are the caretakers, guardians and protectors of Gaia, our home.
These are magical times. Find ways to usher in the magic in YOUR life, in YOUR area of the world, and in YOUR heart and soul!
