Beauty

Return to Peace

Video information

We need beauty, silence, stillness, and solitude. The photos are mine all taken during this past winter season in a landscape that so represents beauty, silence, stillness, and solitude to me.

The beautiful music is Dr Andrew Weil and Kimba Arem.

I enjoyed this music video very much. I like the sonorous guitar and evocative flute sounds which are peaceful and calming to listen to, and the nature scenery and pictures of birds such as the majestic eagles soaring complement the music very well. Like John Donohue said in his quote in the video, “Indeed, the beauty of nature is often the wisest calm”, and I feel as if I am transported into another realm where all is tranquil when listening to the mesmerising music.

My Heart, Your Heart – CC

Whenever Beauty looks,
Love is also there;
Whenever beauty shows a rosy cheek
Love lights Her fire from that flame.
When beauty dwells in the dark folds of night
Love comes and finds a heart
entangled in tresses.
Beauty and Love are as body and soul.
Beauty is the mine, Love is the diamond
-Rumi

Here’s sharing this meaningful song – according to the video description: “This song is about heart connection and how we are inextricably linked to our kindred spirits, soul mates and twin flames.. Beyond time and space. Your CC XO”

I like the lyrics, especially these portions:

“If you are weary, lean on me
My love I wrap you in
The greatest force upon the earth
Together we could win

Connection like ours can’t be replaced
From shadow, you’ll emerge just like the sun
My heart, your heart
They beat as one”

Here’s sharing this worship video. As described by Brian McLaren in this website, it is a beautiful worship experience indeed, replete with grand visuals of creation’s beauty and stirring voices and music of humanity. I like the lyrics as well as quotes in the song, such as the quote by Richard Rohr.

“If we are created in the image and likeness of God, then whatever good, true or beautiful things we can say about humanity or creation, we can say of God exponentially. God is the beauty of creation and humanity multiplied to the infinite power.” Fr Richard Rohr

Yes, may God give us new eyes to see, new skin to feel, new lungs to breathe the wonder underneath, faith like a mustard seed to swim in God’s (Love’s) mystery. May we embrace the enchantment of the world and see the glory of God/Love that fills the earth.

Our seeking is His seeking
Our words are His words”
