Beauty is a selfless surrender of love! Of course ascetics are nice to see, but sometimes we may be fooled. In retrospect to the truest essence of and for an interior beauty, one must first understand how to give. If we do not understand a selfless love for one another, the entire global community becomes at risk of actually exterminating itself in terms of the beauty manifested within our already burning souls.
There has been a treasury of wealth written through the application of Truth we find through Scripture. And, the most beauty this author has seen has been through this wonder of selfless love in terms of taking the responsibility of initiating the selfless gift of self to some I truly love. Often times we do not witness to this kind of love unless we are at a stage of losing it. And more times than not, this is the manner in which we learn.
A man's wife is his perfect source of wealth for this kind of beauty and love. It may not be so much the outward beauty of the person (in terms of people), but the interior beauty that wells up when someone sees and recognizes the essence of sensitivity in and through a human relationship.
This giving, and sharing in a participation of Christ actually being Present in Spirit, and the communion of persons, helps guide us to a very real love (and beauty), that may only come through a refurbished heart and soul. One must first become foolish in order to become wise; and there remains no way around this, for as Augustine stated, "We may find one man made savage by love and another man made gentle by iniquity." Christ is right when He says "all knees must bow," and when truly through a beautiful act of contrition, we discover a hidden beauty within.
Through this selfless giving we come to a point within the beauty of the communion of persons where with a participation of Christ's Spirit, (a true blessing), we may come to experience what truly converts to a purely divine spiritual ecstasy only few are able to witness.
Instead of creating a spiritual genocide let us work together in re-thinking our desires as to what true beauty really is. The beauty of the soul is only lit when there becomes a reason for that beautiful light to shine. So, what are you waiting for, let your love shine through the selfless act of giving.
