There’s a Navaho blessing that states “May you walk-in beauty” which at its very essence may be the spiritual practice of beauty. It’s not an expression or society’s meaning of beauty but instead it’s a path you travel on, the thought of the way you “see” what surrounds you. It’s an inner reflection of existence. Thus, the very first part of the spiritual practice would be to work at a brand new meaning of exactly what the word itself means.
We start with understanding that there’s beauty everywhere so we must uncover it. Whenever we realize it can there be, the expertise of beauty could be felt within the physical simplicity instead of complexity. Removing all of the old excuses and definitions of why something might not reflect beauty can be challenging. Our routine and practice of seeing the planet my society’s definition makes us become lost inside a rut of habit. It narrows our mind.
It may be startling, stimulating or soothing. It may be cultivated, nurtured, and experienced. It’s not simply an adjective.
“The flower that blooms in adversity may be the rarest and many beautiful of.” Mulan – Wally Disney
