“Divine Beauty is when we fully open up to our individualized spirituality. Spirituality is different for everyone. What resonates with you may not resonate with your family. What works for some of your friends may not work for you. And that’s okay. If we consider the infinite facets of each of us and the infinite nuances of how we could interpret spirituality, at that point we can easily accept that there’s not a “one size fits all” spiritual package for everyone. I invite you to explore what being spiritual means to you. Explore what practices, learned or made up, bring you a sense of peace. It’s in our Divine Beauty that we find true peace and the knowing that we’re all one. Matthew Fox wrote, “Beauty saves. Beauty heals. Beauty motivates. Beauty unites. Beauty returns us to our origins, and here lies the ultimate act of saving, of healing, of overcoming dualism.”
It seems totally fine for me to enjoy going to church one day, chanting the next and meditating in a temple the day after that. I enjoy an eclectic variety. Besides, there are practices in several religions that give me my sense of “home.” At the same time, you may choose a genre or a religion that feels right to you. Whatever you do, please tune into your heart, your mind, and your soul to find what brings you your own Divine Beauty.
