Reading this book in the middle of it all reset my mind and soul and brought me back to a more peaceful and beautiful state of being. As the title states, beauty IS a state of being. We are all part of this big beautiful thing and we can use our mind to see the beauty and be the beauty. The mind is a powerful piece that if used correctly, can create an inner peace and happiness that will immensely enhance your time here on Earth. The words in this book helped bring me back from the soul clouding parts of the day, filling me back up with happiness, light and peace.
From the back of the book:
“This book is required reading for everyone who has a mind. The mind is a powerful tool capable of great creativity and invention. But, when used improperly, the mind can also become an instrument of suffering. Beauty as a State of Being shows the reader how to use the mind well, so that peace can reign in the individual life and, by extension, the life of the world.
When the mind finds its proper place the heart is revealed and, with the heart, joy. Beauty as a State of Being guides the reader to realms of joy and spiritual illumination, where answers to the great questions of life are also to be found. As the path presented in this book progresses toward the spiritual, the ideas ascend in conceptual and literary beauty, in essays and prose poems that are themselves revelations of the heart.”
This book is honestly for everyone. Whether your religious or not, spiritual, scientific, curious, young, old...whatever! This book is full of cosmic knowledge, the good stuff. It helps bring you back to the kind of reality that matters, the kind that makes you feel good and puts this life in a positive light. I highly suggest giving this book a read. Only positive things will come of it.
