+ We are called to create and enjoy a realm of compassion, peace, justice and sustainable abundance for all.

One thing I asked of the LORD,
          that will I seek after:
     to live in the house of the LORD
          all the days of my life,
     to behold the beauty of the LORD,
          and to inquire in his temple.
-- Psalm 27:4 NRSV

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty” -
 that is all Ye know on Earth, and all ye need to know.
-- John Keats in Ode on a Grecian Urn

+ Now we are getting to the heart of what Heaven is all about: Beauty, Love, Truth.  Truly, everything is connected by the power of Love so beautifully. Hopefully this brief exploration of the Heavenly Attribute of Beauty can add to our awareness of the intimate, intricate and infinite connections which make the whole creation so beautiful.  Poets and artists and mystics are often able to see these connections in ways which elude the rest of us.  We all have our individual takes on what beauty is.  “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” But those poets and artists and mystics and other wisdom teachers can guide us find common ground.  Hopefully these posts can help.

Here is one of my “takes” on Beauty:

You are beautiful.  That’s the truth. God loves you just the way you are. You are beautiful. You are surrounded by beauty. Listen to the birds sing. Join their song. It’s a magnificent choir.

Be the beautiful person you are in every possible way. Enjoy the beauty of every other person, every other creature, everything God made. Everything is beautiful. Everything. Don’t miss it. And don’t mess it up.

If there is ugliness it’s because we don’t know how to be beautiful. Humanity at this present stage of evolution is in dire need of a wake up call when it comes to appreciating and maintaining the beauty of creation. The Good News is that we are waking up and this is a beautiful thing. 

We have a lot to learn here. Our definition of beauty is too narrow. We miss so much. We miss too much. We don’t even see the beauty in ourselves.

That’s where to begin. See yourself as beautiful, no more beautiful than any other person but no less. You are simply beautiful. God adores you. Everything about you is beautiful. You are so precious. You are so amazing. You are so wonderful. You are fantastic. You are loveable just the way you are.

Every move you make is beautiful. Believe that and everything is transformed. Everything. Every thought you think. Every feeling you feel. Everything you say. Everything you touch. Everything you see. Everything you taste. You are a heavenly being. You are in heaven now. Don’t miss it. It is so beautiful, heavenly. Heavenly because it is heaven. And that’s the truth. You have arrived. And now you know.

This message is for you, right now, right here. You are beautiful. You are waking up and renewing the face of the earth. Everything you touch is now simply beautiful, simply divine. Stay here in the realm of beauty until you are so sure of your beauty and the beauty of all creation that you remain awake, aware, connected at all times, all the time, at this time. Smile. You have a beautiful smile. Dance. You dance beautifully. You are simply divine. Sing your song. What a beautiful song.

Too many people are hiding their beauty these days. Don’t hide. Your beauty is too amazing to be hidden. Shine brightly. You are renewing the face of the earth. You are making earth heavenly. You are creating “new heavens and a new earth.” What a beautiful thing you are doing. So beautiful. So beautiful. So amazing. So wonderful. WOW.

As you fully embrace and reveal your own beauty, miracles happen. Healings happen. Peace breaks out all over. Justice is restored. Freedom is enjoyed. Love changes everything. No more war. No more poverty. No more disease. No more hate. No more destruction of the environment. No more envy. No more jealousy. It’s a new world. It’s a heavenly world. Love changes everything.

What’s your “take?” I invite you to write about Beauty as you dwell or after you dwell in this realm.  And …

I would love it if you offered a guest post.  And, I have work to do on the Abundancetrek Beauty page.  Maybe you can help.  Send an email with the subject “Beauty” or “Heavenly Attributes” or “Guest Post” to
