It's all about Beauty

“I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but when you’re really, really Quiet, there’s so much Beauty! Everything is beautiful! Today was one of those days: the ocean was beautiful, the houses were beautiful, the people were beautiful, the weather was beautiful, the paintings were beautiful, the lunch was great. The whole day was just like a flow through Beauty.
          It seems to me that Beauty and Stillness, Truth, are the same. When you’re really there in the “Nothing’  you can see that, or you can know that. There may be profound Love and you just feel this loving oneness; but you can also experience that everything suddenly seems to be beautiful. Things that seemed ordinary before suddenly become absolutely beautiful, absolutely perfect: perfectly beautiful.”

– John David
