Most likely you’ve heard this quote before. I think it aids us in our pursuit of happiness to keep this in mind as we live and choose the priorities in our lives.
What things are most important to us? Helen succinctly and beautifully paints how true beauty can be experienced, another key in unlocking happiness. For her, literally she couldn’t experience beauty through her sight or sound and experiencing it through the heart was her only way of identifying it.
Creation of good karma is true beauty, that has to be felt, it cant be seen or heard. True beauty is kindness. Compassion. Unconditional love and being nonjudgmental.
Beauty can of course be manifested in the senses, in beautiful music, paintings, and acting but it makes sense these things are inspired by the heart. The heart is the source. Part of creating a better world is choosing to seek true beauty within ourselves and fellow living beings.
