Look for beauty and beauty is what you shall find. Not the idea of beauty. Not what you ‘think’ is beautiful, and make a mental note when you see it. Or create a fantasy or story with your mind. Real beauty doesn’t need this.
And this beauty is not bound to a place or time. It is available everywhere. Even in places with a lot of dirt, chaos or negativity. Even there is a flower somewhere waiting for you to witness her freshness. Have you seen it? Really seen it? Have you noticed that when the sunset is there, the color of the flower looks completely different?
There is even beauty that we can feel without pointing out what it is exactly. Maybe the energie, air or light in that particular moment. Comparable with the love we have for a loved one. The love for our partner or child is not visible, but still very real right?
There are a lot of negative energies (also invisible for the eye) who are very happy to get into our field. If we aren’t aware of it, they can take the wheel. If we are aware of it, and we recognize these energies (without identifying with them), we CAN make a conscious choice in each moment to not go along with them. To not give them any value or truth.
Wouldn’t it make you angry if a stranger enters your house in the middle of the night and starts shitting in your very own living room? Would you invite him to stay and continue to shit in all rooms of your house? Or would you say, hey! What are you doing here! This is my home! My space. Get out! Go shit somewhere else. I don’t need it here. I don’t want it here. You will get bored.
Boundaries are so important!! Anywhere we go. Outside and inside. And the more we set these boundaries, the less cleaning we have to do inside. If we let all negativity come in, we can be busy cleaning our inner space twenty four hours a day! Or even come to a full identification with the shit. Frankly, I want to be free and spend my time in a different way. And I want to contribute something else.
And of course we make mistakes. You kindly allow and embrace your mistake. You take time to nurture yourself. And then, you go out for a walk, you open your eyes to beauty. And beauty is what you shall find.
