And Then There is Beauty

And Then There is Beauty

every step of the walk,
every silence,
every solitude,
and in each moment,
a meaning.
an engagement with life
at the heart of being,
about what matters.

the complexity and profundity
of what is simple,
of what is of the heart,
of what it is to be fully human.
that is all there is to it.

it is an answer to a calling,
and then a conviction.
and that in every move,
a revelation
and a conversion.

and then, yes, there is beauty.
this is what makes the experience richer
and deeper.

    Virgilio, you walk in simplicity and beauty, fully human, without complexity, it is a sacred walk, at the heart of being fully in the heart of nature, of God, of all that is. Wonderful post.
