The divine loveliness
Comeliness and grace are independent of matter. Being
possesses its qualities before they are perceived
humanly. Beauty is a thing of life, which
dwells forever in the eternal Mind and reflects
the charms of His goodness in expression, form,
outline, and color. It is Love which paints the petal
with myriad hues, glances in the warm sunbeam, arches
the cloud with the bow of beauty, blazons the night with
starry gems, and covers earth with loveliness.
The embellishments of the person are poor substitutes
for the charms of being, shining resplendent and eternal
over age and decay.
The recipe for beauty is to have less illusion and
more Soul, to retreat from the belief of pain or pleasure
in the body into the unchanging calm and glorious freedom
of spiritual harmony.
