Truth


Welcome to our meditation... Let us take a deep, cleansing breath. Fill your lungs and then breathe out slowly. Do some light stretching. Relax your body. Relax your mind. Clear your thoughts. There is a quote by John Keats that says, "Beauty is truth, truth beauty." If we think about everything in Life that has come naturally to this world, there is no denying that all of it is beautiful. We can embrace the many aspects of the natural world - both the pleasant and not so pleasant moments - because we know it's part of a grander scheme: A plan that is so detailed down to DNA codes and beyond that just all becomes awe inspiring. Living life naturally is by default, beautiful. The more we are true to ourselves, the more beautiful we appear. All truth is beautiful. Honesty is beautiful. It takes courage to be our selves. Let us stretch our minds now to accept that all things natural AND unnatural can be seen as beautiful as well. Even though humans have created many things that are unappealing or corrupt, we can still appreciate the fact we are able to create and be creative, and that we have the freedom to make mistakes. Our mistakes are part of our humanity, and humanity is also complex and beautiful as it weaves its way through Life. Even in our worst moments we can see the beauty of our lives shining through. The journey that is Life does not lie. It is our true purpose. Let us live Life purposefully, and as our true selves. Let us try to see the beauty in all of Life. Let yourself Be. Be who you were. Be who you are now. Be who you want to be. All of it is a Be-autiful journey.
