Essential Practices along the Spiritual Path
We take part in this awesome cycle of experiencing. As individuals, we select and experience beauty separately. Together, we all become active participants in the eternal world of beauty. The essence of beauty permeates the domain of creation and finds its home within the heart of the observer and within the heart of that which is observed. No individual person can perceive and experience meaning within a surface manifestation unless the meaning has been experienced within the depths of being.
