+ Silence and solitude are the marks of spiritual maturity. They lead to peace and bliss. The spiritual life is an inner life and cannot be attained on the outside. The spiritual life is its own reward and seeks nothing beyond itself. Once we achieve inner peace and conscious contact, we want to overflow. This is the mark of truth and love to move toward goodness and transcendence. The ancient philosophers called goodness, truth, beauty and love the transcendental properties of Being.

+ Heaven is Here. Now.  That’s the truth.  We foolishly make all kinds of efforts to avoid this truth.  The Buddhists teach us that this foolishness is the result of ignorance.  But they don’t recommend books.  Books have their place, of course.  So do websites.  But ignorance can only be overcome when we create enough space for that “inner peace and conscious contact” to overflow.  It can happen.  We can live as God intends, as a Heavenly Being.  So, my friends, keep practicing.  It is definitely worthy the effort.    

Spirituality & Practice offers many resources on the the spiritual practice of Beauty and a Twelves Gallery of Memes on Beauty.  The meme above comes from that gallery.  Thank You very much S&P.

+ I would love it if you offered a guest post on this practice or any practice.  And, I have work to do on my Solitude Page.   Maybe you can help.  Send an email with the subject “Solitude” or “Guest Post” to
