Seeing Beauty: A Necessary Skill for the Future

Garlic blossomOne only needs to watch the evening news or scroll the endless facebook feed to see what is wrong with the world today. At every opportunity we are given a choice on whether to see goodness or something which could leave us rendered with despair, heartbroken and down trodden. We wonder often why we bother, what difference do we make?

In this time it seems now that seeing the beauty in life is no longer an easy thing. Yet it is not just a throw-away new-age thought but a necessary skill to be cultivated now more than ever before. A skill which we must add to our tool box in order to evolve in consciousness, make connections and to make good with the earth and with each other.

It is an absolute truth that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It all comes down to perception and attitude yet goes deeper than that. Most of us all have the inner wisdom to feel what resonates as beautiful, good and sacred in this life. It is drawn up from the well of our souls and like finger prints, individual to us all and simply requires tapping back into. This is what keeps us dreaming and creating new ways of being. We need to want this more. We need to ache for beauty and it’s moving and inspiring qualities.
