Here’s sharing this inspiring blog “Beauty: The Invisible Embrace”. I agree with the writer that in spite of the frailty and uncertainty we experience in life, and in spite of the chaos and hardship, it is precisely the time to look for beauty, to awaken and invoke beauty because there is nowhere else to turn, and beauty is the only hope of reversing the tides of darkness and despair.
Like what the blog says, beauty preserves us for the long haul in life as it offers us refreshment, elevation and remembrance of our true origin and real destination. It inoculates us against hopelessness and cynicism, and emboldens us to continue our endeavour in overcoming taunts and mistreatments from the world system.
It is good to remember that the invisible beauty is where we find solace and healing for our wounded soul and weary spirit. I also like the conclusion in the blog:
“The Beautiful stirs passion and urgency in us and calls us forth from aloneness into the warmth and wonder of an eternal embrace. It unites us again with the neglected and forgotten grandeur of life.”
