The gift of art, music and beauty

July 20th, 2009

A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul. ~~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The gift of art, music and beauty is often understated in our daily lives. We don’t often make time for a museum visit, a concert or to take a photograph on the run. The gifts of integrating the arts and beauty into our lives as a daily practice are unbounded.  Art and beauty feed our soul and are central to our very nature.  Today’s world is fast and busy.  It is essential that we make time to experience our inner quiet for it is in this place that we are informed and receive information and wisdom that will actually make our day-to-day life easier.  The gift that music, poetry and beauty give us is the gift of inner contemplation and stillness.  There is nothing more that our world needs.  If we start with ourselves and realize the value these subtle gifts give us, we can begin living our lives from a place of greater depth and contemplation.  The presence will roll out into the world and touch the many lives we encounter.  Take a moment to invite music, art, beauty, meditation and stillness into your life.  This is one of the greatest ways to contribute to the peace that our world cries for now.
