Riddle me this….
If you have a Bee in your Hand…..
What do you have in your Eye?
The answer, Beloved, is Beauty!
Beauty is in the EYE of the BEE-Holder
Cute, huh? I have always loved this riddle.
It is well-appreciated that beauty is in the eye of the beholder…to each his own…etc. Love it.
But the ABILITY TO BEHOLD BEAUTY is in the HEART and SOUL.
In order to behold beauty, we must be whole and healthy inside. When we have a fractured sense of self, we look at the world through fractured lenses. When we begin to heal, we are able to see more beauty in the world.
The more beauty we see in the world, the less scary it seems.
With each step toward recovery we enable ourselves to find more beauty in this world; this life.
We find beauty, even in the struggle.
On a side note…
No bees were harmed during the making of this blog.
