Why is beauty important? Because it connects us to what we are. It connects us to the beauty which is our core. It connects us to our beingness and our innate goodness. To some people this core is frightening and they do everything they can to deny it. Those are the people that want to hurt and destroy. To them beauty is threatening and ugly, worthless. That is why it is an act of resistance to focus on beauty. To make it come alive in yourself and your life.
When you stop seeing the beautiful you start seeing the ugly. Combat the ugly with action. Celebrate the beautiful with being.
