Just like a flower, beauty will always make you feel more beautiful in its presence.
While it can be easy to be touched by physical beauty, inner beauty emanates “light”or loving energy. It is this light loving energy that leaves a feeling of awe that brings out the beauty within everyone and everything. If you have you ever felt affected by someone’s appearance, perhaps you have found yourself affected by their accomplishments, money, status, following, degrees,or even title?
If you have ever been impressed by these things, do you remember how you felt? If you felt inspired or motivated, that person was likely coming from a place of heart centered consciousness and equality rather than from a place of superiority. When there is a lack of humility, it is a tangible difference easily perceived. While the light is still within, it can be obscured by a lack of self love, most evident with a need for attention or approval. While there is nothing to judge, perhaps a willingness to look past the props, beyond superficial masks, will bring the love to the light to free the spirit from the self imprisonment that confuses identity and self worth with outward appearances and accomplishments.
If when in the presence of someone, you consistently feel like you can’t measure up, are inadequate, insecure, or drained, pay attention. If, on the other hand, you feel motivated, inspired or grateful, take heed. Someone may be physically beautiful, have lots of money, be well accomplished and also be kind, humble, generous, empathetic, open and honest. All the money, good looks and status in the world are meaningless in the absence of love. Many people have owned the idea that they are capable and deserving and others know that everyone is equally deserving and capable. The latter are my kind of people.
Be awed by humility, kindness, generosity, integrity and empathy.
Don’t be awed by money, appearances, titles, achievements or status.
Remember that no matter what you set out to experience, to be, or accomplish, that when you embrace an awareness that you are not only connected to love and light, but that you are love and light and that you take this with you wherever you go, you know you never need face any challenge alone. When everything you do is done with divine grace, you empower yourself and lift others around you to greatness honoring the love and light that is within all living things. With this humility, you are inspired and you make an impression, inspiring others to tap in to the love and light that is everyone’s birthright.
