    sunlight dancing on water....trees making shadows on the ground...the look of love in someones eyes...the curves and hard angles on ones body.

    The time near sunset when the sun blankets everything in a beautiful, glowing, warm, organge'ish color...I love that, especially in the city <3.

    In a spiritual sense of what is beautiful, I read more into being born again according to Christian theology. I'm not going to go in to all the details because it would take too long and it's too tiresome to read. But one being baptized into Christ and/or receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit is like seeing spiritually a baby being born as it cries, breathing in its first breath. It's a beautiful experience...Not only beautiful, but there is a sense of joy and newness of life to see the experience of that person being recreated.

    Concise, universal fractions of truth.








    Whatever that means.

    Smile Beauty and the Quotidian

    Quote Originally Posted by bluestripes View Post

    besides, beauty, or the dichotomy between the beautiful and the ugly, is a purely human construct. it only applies to the world we have created around ourselves, because we were the ones to design and construct it, and so we have a right to judge it by our own standards. when it comes to the larger world created by god, as the great artist whom no human genius can match, we can no longer use these concepts in the same manner. either everything in that world is beautiful, seeing that it was made out of love and carries god's own spark inside, or it is neither "beautiful" nor "ugly". it just IS. it exists on its own, for its own sake, independently of ourselves. and its value has nothing to do with what we find aesthetically pleasing or not.

    i do find green living beings beautiful. but the same goes for non-green living beings too - and i guess there are many people out there who are less fond of nature and don't feel quite that way.
    Yes, we slip sideways out of the quotidian into beauty.

    But then we fall backwards out of beauty into the quotidian.

    And there is no beauty without the quotidian, and no quotidian without beauty.

    At the minute I'm finding solitude beautiful, its harder to find that you might imagine.

    To me, genuinity is synonomous with beauty. Genuine people, genuine thoughts, genuine ideas, nature (what's more genuine than that?) and especially genuine hearts.

    The moment when you look out into something -- a landscape, an object, a person -- and feel completely one with it.

    That may be the most beautiful thing I've ever experienced.

    And once we can fake genuine thoughts, genuine ideas and a genuine heart, we've got it made.

    Always about the night sky, the stars. And when in a very dark area, the galaxy/universe.
