Beauty ~ An Excerpt

BeautyPeople are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

~ Elizabeth Kübler-Ross, MD
(Swiss American psychiatrist, pioneer in grief and near-death studies, 1926-2004)

Love beauty; it is the shadow of God on the universe.

~ Gabriela Mistral
(Chilean poet, educator, diplomat, feminist, Nobel Prize in Literature in 1945, 1889-1957)

Prayer

With your feet I walk
I walk with your limbs
I carry forth your body
For me your mind thinks
Your voice speaks for me
Beauty is before me
And beauty is behind me
Above and below me hovers the beautiful
I am surrounded by it
I am immersed in it
In my youth I am aware of it
And in old age I shall walk quietly
The beautiful trail.

~ A Navajo Prayer

Action

Beauty is all around us and within us. Sometimes we miss it. Where did you see or discovery beauty when you might have otherwise missed it?

You might consider writing in a journal or sharing what you experienced.

This is a sneak peek of a new Eternal Scheme feature
to be introduced soon. Daily Word offers an inspirational focus that can be used as a daily spiritual practice. Each word is randomly generated just for you.

Most of the pictures were taken by my sister, Janet, who has traveled extensively. Each word was matched with a picture to help you remember your word for the day. I’ve selected a wide-range of quotes, scripture and prayers to add depth, and an action to make it all real and practical.

We have a few other surprises we’re baking into the experience, as well as a companion ebook. You’ll hear more as we get closer to our launch!
