Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them. This reminds us that everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it even though we are all capable of both contemplation and seeing the beauty of this moment called life. Often the issue is that we associate beauty with perfection, but quite the opposite is true. Beauty lies in the imperfections both large and small. We each in our own ways are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. Yet we are beautiful not through overcoming the flaws but through our beautiful ways of embracing, learning and growing with and through those flaws.
Our imperfect beauty rises to the surface and consumes us whole-fully the very moment we learn to embrace our imperfections and shine onward through the clouds.
Peace and Love, Jim
