I sat for a while watching the beauty of the morning sun dancing on the forest floor and dancing on the green leaves. I didn’t envy the beauty I saw. I didn’t want to make it my own. I didn’t compare my own beauty to the beauty of the forest dance. I didn’t think of myself at all. I just watched, free and easy.
Then I wondered what today would be like if I watched other people the way I watched the forest dance – enjoying their beauty and letting it water my soul.
So I tried it at a party. I looked for beauty in everybody I met. I enjoyed their stories and their eyes and their laughs and their looks. I let their beauty water my soul. I didn’t judge or categorize or compare them to myself. I didn’t think of myself at all. I just watched, free and easy.
Thank you for shining through.
