Beautiful Inside – by Shaveta B.
Beautiful Souls Story
Love is often described as the most beautiful thing that one can experience in life. It is an emotion that grows and develops within us, much like the growth of a flower.
As Saint Augustine said, “Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.” Love can inspire us to see the beauty in the world and appreciate the things around us.
Just like how love grows, so does beauty. Beauty is all around us, from the natural world to the works of art that humans create.
It is in the vibrant colors of a sunset, the intricate patterns of a mandala, or the delicate petals of a flower. Beauty can evoke emotions of joy, awe, and wonder, just like love can.
The beauty of the soul that Augustine referred to is a reflection of the love that we feel within ourselves. When we love ourselves, we can see the beauty in our own unique qualities and imperfections.
We can appreciate our strengths and weaknesses, and embrace them as part of who we are. This self-love can radiate outward, allowing us to see the beauty in others as well.
Beauty is not just limited to physical appearance, but can also be found in the way someone speaks, acts, or thinks.
Kindness, compassion, and empathy are all beautiful qualities that can be expressed through our actions and words. The beauty of the soul lies in the way we treat others and the impact that we have on the world around us.
As we grow in love, we can also grow in our appreciation for beauty. We can see it in the small moments of everyday life, like a smile from a stranger or the sound of birds singing in the morning.
We can also seek it out intentionally, through art, nature, or other sources that inspire us. By cultivating a sense of beauty in our lives, we can open ourselves up to experiencing the world in a more meaningful and fulfilling way.
In summary, love and beauty are intertwined concepts that grow and develop within us. By embracing love and seeing the beauty in ourselves and others, we can appreciate the world around us in a more profound way. As Saint Augustine said, “For love is the beauty of the soul.”
