True Beauty

“Beauty is not caused. It is.”
-- Emily Dickinson

I was so touched by how Andrew Schneider describes beauty: “When a being is authentically what it is, the presence of Spirit within reveals itself as Beauty which touches our heart. Whenever we experience beauty, our soul is activated and love is awakened. And whenever you are true to yourself, you are beautiful!

“When we open to Spirit, we radiate beauty. Beauty transforms, so when we radiate beauty, we empower others and give them a glimpse of their own beauty, the Spirit within themselves, which is the source of their power. The key is that we must know we are beautiful, and feel that beauty within ourselves, before we can empower others.

“Beauty is magnetic and draws our heart into loving contact and connection with it. We only love what we, in our hearts, perceive as beautiful. Deepening our contact with, and appreciation of, beauty will increase the love experienced in our lives.”
~ Patrice

“You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing.”
-- Marie Carmichael Stopes

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”
-- Kahlil Gibran
