Profound and Immortal

If our eyes saw souls instead of bodies, how different our ideals of beauty would be.
        --------Lauren Jauregui

God said to the rose, causing it to laugh in full-blown beauty,  what he also said to my heart: 
"I made you a hundred times more beautiful."
      ------Rumi

I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.
            ― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

The soul is an infinite ocean of just beautiful energy and presence made manifest in human form.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are your works; my soul knows it very well.
      -------Psalm 139:14

 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.
     ------Psalm 139:15-18

    The 139 Psalm, my favorite of all. The last two verses are my daily prayer / go to prayer since I was a teen.
    Roses seen to be the ultimate beauty in the whole world.
    This was a great way to start my day ❣️
    Thank you, Gloria

    1. Carol,
      I am glad that this verse is meaningful to you. It’s so true, isn’t it . . . the way the soul-light shines through.
      (I need to think about why I still attempt eyeliner!!!)

    Expectedly peaceful musings, very well composed. Interesting: I just read a quote of Rumi yesterday, and I have a copy of The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibron, both of whom you referenced today.
