Usually, one doesn’t meet God personally,
And, even in that case, ordinarily just by accident.
We pass by, and only later realize
Something happened –
Maybe just a momentary impression –
Like noticing stars looking like astral “white flowers”
Or a simple shrub beside the path, when hit by the sun, turning into a “star.”
It’s the joy arising in our hearts
That tells us God has just passed by.
Unexpectedly, we feel like dancing –
Even though the world might think us crazy –
And we are – but only for God.
Our heart starts beating an internal drum:
– Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy –
Our feet leave the ground –
We’re in the air!
Who says there’s no such thing as ecstasy
In North America?
Beauty needs to be “fresh” –
Strike us as a surprise –
And be “one of a kind.”
Can beauty be separated from love?
In other words, is it possible not to love what we experience as beautiful?
I think it’s unimaginable, unless you’re dead!
Spontaneity is the principal requirement for beauty –
Because no matter how much training you’ve gone through–
Whether in dance, sports, art, or anything else –
True beauty only appears beyond what you’ve already accomplished.
Beauty is natural –
Unaware of itself.
It’s always a gift –
Since it doesn’t have to be paid for –
Being much too dear for commercial purchase.
Sometimes, if you aren’t paying close attention, you might get tricked
Into thinking beauty is present, when it really isn’t –
But as soon as you look more closely – you’ll know whether it’s real.
It’s like a hummingbird flash –
Suddenly appearing, and then, just as quickly,
