When you rejoice in the beauty, the entire creation rejoices with you.
The mind or head knows only facts, while the heart makes everything big. There is no fact in the beauty. If you try to analyze beauty from your mind, the beauty is gone. Beauty is a language of the heart. The heart decorates, elaborates, exaggerates it.
When you read a poem, sing a song, and describe something beautiful, it’s always from the heart. Quality comes from the head. From the heart comes only uniqueness, speciality.
If there is some negativity, we deal with it from the heart and if something positive, we say it goes to our head.
We exaggerate problems. If a mistake has been made or there is some suffering, some misery, we blow it up beyond its dimensions.
Many newspapers thrive on this exaggerated negativity, but they say, “Let’s see the facts” if something beautiful happens. They want to look at it from their head rather than through the heart.
We do the same thing, We need to switch it around. When you see the negative quality in someone, analyse it. Why is this person being so negative? What is behind? What does he/she want? Reason it out.
Don’t see negativity through the heart because then your heart becomes sore. Analysis of negativity brings compassion to you.
An exaggeration of some good brings waves of beauty to you.
You have to take a step to make this shift. If you see one beautiful quality in another person, decorate it, exaggerate it, make it big.
By exaggerating positive qualities we also become positive.
In act of praising, you become beautiful.
