Beauty

It's sunny, and it's raining.  How beautiful…

I love it when life hands you two seemingly distinct things at once…light and storm.  Beauty is never as simple as pure light. ๐Ÿ™‚

Just beautiful.

  1. why is it beautiful? is there any meaning to the two conflicting ideas coming together, for you? I require mooore! : P

  2. Beauty without an element of darkness is one dimensional and superficial. It's not real. It's a figment of our imaginations, the part of us that wishes we could live in a fairy tale world of happy endings and pure light. But we can't. We can't ignore the darkness, the pain, and the suffering. Adding this to happiness and light, you get a complexity and intricacy that simply didn't exist before. Also, the darkness has a power over us that we often wish we could remove. It reminds us of how limited we are. We can't control our pain, but we often feel in control of our happiness. When darkness and light intertwine, we are devastated and lifted up in one breath. The sweeping power of it knocks the wind out of us and leaves us standing in awe. It has a power that light alone does not hold. It has the power to cripple us and to humble us.This example was a benign one. A small dose. There are much more potent examples of beauty around us, if we are willing to look at it. If we don't hide our eyes in fear.Beauty is complex and never easy to wrap our minds around. It simultaneously breaks our hearts and fills them with love. Beauty is a contradiction.
