BEAUTY - harvesting presence

BEAUTY – harvesting presence

Today, let's cultivate the felt sense of beauty induced by deep attention.

Beauty is revealed by expanding beyond the tunnel vision accumulated by thoughts and beliefs … by seeing more clearly what's really here. There is a self-forgetting that happens when we are entranced by beauty … a letting go of the fears that create separation. These fearful illusions of separation dissolve in the presence of beauty … in witnessing how beauty weaves itself in symmetries and intriguing asymmetries: in the wings of a moth, the airy sky, an unfurling fern, fractling tree branches, the eyes of a loving face.


“Beauty occurs in the meeting of time with the timeless; the passing moment framed by what has happened and what is about to occur: the scattering of the first spring apple blossom, the turning, spiralling flight of a curled leaf in the falling light; the smoothing of white sun-filled sheets by careful hands setting them to air on a line, the broad expanse of cotton filled by the breeze only for a moment, the sheets sailing on into dryness, billowing toward a future that is always beckoning, always just beyond us.”

– David Whyte
