"A thing of beauty is a joy forever"
John Keats, from Edymion, Book I
It is remarkable to experience how rewiring can turn your brain upside down in how we use concepts and how we, in essence, perceive. For many of us, this is precisely what we have been looking for given the sensory implications of what DNRS establishes as a limbic system impairment. Yet the change in vibration of experiential concepts I experienced with rewiring stands as the greatest reward of my Journey.
First on the list of all these concepts and experiences is Beauty. Prior to my brain retraining, I used the word, like everyone else, with my own criteria: The black colour was beautiful. Autumn and especially Winter were beautiful. Movie dramas were beyond beautiful, they were often masterpieces. At the same time, I was very opinionated on what was not beautiful. Other things were just in the middle. They didn’t disturb, but I was glad when they were over. Like Spring. You may be asking yourself: How about flowers?. Well, I definitively liked the idea of flowers, but this alone had no power on me.
There is this saying, beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, that I could only grasp to the fullest when these stars in the show of nature, flowers, began to catch my attention. They not only seduced me with their elegant shapes and chromatic explosion, they also became my teachers and a new gracious member to my trinity of power: the Inner Power, the Higher Power and the Flower Power. It gave me more strength to carry on.
It was from the beautiful flowers I learnt that Beauty is, first and foremost, the best medicine. Its magnetic natural field with gravitational power pulled me towards her and away from any symptom.
Flowers are resilient and born over and over anew even when you wouldn’t believe they are capable of doing so. They are inspirational!
Beauty also equals light. Flowers have a luminous aura. To me, all flowers are beautiful. This makes beauty light. This is why where there is light, I see beauty. And where there is darkness, then I am the light, and then there is always beauty no matter what because this comes in the end from my evolved consciousness that makes me see with my heart.
It´s Eckhart Tolle who, in his transformational book A New Earth, sees flowers as a powerful force in the evolution of human consciousness: “As the consciousness of human beings developed, flowers were most likely the first thing they came to value that had no utilitarian purpose for them, that is to say, was not linked in some way to survival."
It makes so much sense to me: Once I was not in survival anymore, I could become aware of flowers.
He continues on Beauty: “Seeing beauty in a flower could awaken humans (…) to the beauty that is an essential part of their own innermost being, their true nature. (…) The feelings of joy and love are intrinsically connected to that recognition.”
It is this the joy and love I experience through the evergrowing Beauty all around what keeps expanding my wellbeing. It´s never-ending.
I still find the black colour beautiful, but now I also like the colours of the rainbow. Autumn and Winter are now colourful and romantic seasons, as oppose to isolated refuges. As for Spring, it´s not even a season, it´s my flowering state of mind.
I was on “flowergazing” and I found these. They were made for you and me:
