A beautiful reflection by Rumi — ‘The beauty you see in me is a reflection of you.’
You won’t be able to find anything outside of you that you have not found in you. The more you experience love, wisdom, inner beauty, the more you will discover them around you. It’s a law.
You may think that if you do not see certain things, it’s because they are not there. But if they are there, and still you can’t see them, it’s because you have to develop them a little bit more in you. The outside world is only a reflection of your inner world, so be under no illusion that you will never find harmony, peace, happiness, love externally if you did not first do the job of finding them inwardly.
To reach peace in your life, you must first install it in yourself in your actions, your feelings, your thoughts and not to fuel the war in you, struggling constantly inside against one thing and another.
The inner beauty is so much more beautiful to such an extent that it would be impossible to live with a person all your life only with the external beauty. Outside beauty attracts, inner beauty captivates! It’s true that external beauty attracts the eye, but in the end, it’s the inner beauty that moves the heart.
Each one of us has a natural inner beauty that, when it surfaces, makes us beautiful and attractive. It is through our connection to others that we discover what is most beautiful in us. If there is a criterion of inner beauty that I would put at the top of the list, it is the capacity of a person to share, to be involved and to live with passion.
It’s beautiful to see a person thrill with passion for someone or something: a sport, a hobby, art, poetry, humanitarian… Values are part of this beauty so much desired: the honesty, generosity, family values, open-mindedness, the love of peace…
We must never stop questioning ourselves about our values. For this we must, read, meet and discuss with people and especially to learn from them. Each exchange with others must allow us to affirm our personality, and to allow us to question ourselves. And when our character traits displease, we must learn to accept and try to improve. We must learn from our strengths, but also from our weaknesses.
Beauty is not in the clothes we wear or on our face or the way we style our hair. Beauty is seen in our eyes because it is the mouth of our heart. For the one who knows how to see, the beauty of the heart is more precious than the beauty of the body. The inner beauty charms the soul: it is the tenderness of a hand, the warmth of a smile, the passion and the love in the eyes.
No external grace is complete if the inner beauty is not vivify. The beauty of the soul is spreading like a mysterious light on the beauty of the body. -Victor Hugo
The carnal envelope is ephemeral but the inner beauty is eternal. To cultivate it is to use common sense! Today is only as beautiful as you allow it to be. So have a beautiful day dear friends.
