To paraphrase Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, Swiss Psychiatrist and Author: ‘Truly beautiful people are those who have known defeat, suffering, struggle, loss and who worked their own way through these experiences, hand in hand with God and the Angels. Out of the depths of the hell of human suffering they have risen with a fresh appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving empathy with the pain of others. Beautiful people do not just happen, they can only grow and evolve on the Earth plane.
The small earthly self of those who emerge with these qualities from their suffering has died on the cross of Earth life. The characteristics of their Christ nature are breaking through and their spirit and soul has been resurrected. Through its behaviour to the world around it, this part of our being takes to its spiritual wings and enables us to do our share of establishing God’s kingdom on the Earth
Physical beauty as often as not goes only skin-deep and with the passing of time it goes from us in any case. At the latest this happens when we leave our earthly existence behind. Yet, the inner beauty we have been able to find is ours to keep forever. It was the wisdom of the Highest who decreed that this kind of beauty can only be developed in earthly life. And that’s the only thing we can take with us into Eternity and when we do, it considerably eases our pathway through life during all subsequent earthly sojourns.
I know which kind of beauty I prefer. How about you?
