Why Do We Fail To See the Beauty All Around Us?

rainbow

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. ~ Confucius

I live in what is arguably one of the most beautiful places on the planet—in Wyoming, just outside Yellowstone National Park. It’s a land filled with vast open spaces, big blue skies, majestic snowcapped mountains. And yet some days, I fail to see the beauty all around me—usually because I’m not paying attention.

There truly is beauty all around all of us, the world over, no matter where we live. But we have to pay attention.

It can be hard to notice the beauty of our planet, of other people, the animals, all of life in a world seemingly filled with senseless, insane tragedies and turmoil.

For example, the recent brutal murders in Portland, Oregon or the bloody mass killings in Manchester, England. Or the United States’ plan to abandon the Paris Climate Accord. Or the political upheaval in the United Kingdom and the United States. As I’m writing this, two new reports are coming out about two more mass shootings, one in San Francisco and another in Alexandria, Virginia. One of the victims is a United States congressman.

And on it goes, almost endlessly. How do we make sense out of a senseless world?

Spirit

Long ago, Johnny heard a spiritual teacher talk about seeing the world through the eyes of Source (or God). That made no sense to him. How could humans see the world as God does?

The years passed and he came across what has become one of his favorite quotations, from A Course in Miracles:

“Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.”

Those words from A Course in Miracles did make sense to Johnny. Do they make sense to you? You cannot understand the words with your human mind. But you can feel the rightness of them in your heart.

Likewise, it makes no sense to many of you as you witness the string of seemingly senseless events playing out all over your planet. Quit trying to understand it all. Just know that it is as it should be.

We do not say that callously or cruelly. It will all play itself out under the watchful eye of the Creator. He sees it all for what it really is—a series of illusions you have all masterfully created. It’s all part of the game you came to play while in physical form. It will all pass—trust that.

Look instead at all the beauty around you—there is so much you miss by failing to look for it, failing to see what is right there before your physical eyes. All this beauty shall pass too, for it is also part of the illusion you have created.

None of any of this is real. As A Course in Miracles says, nothing unreal exists. And nothing real can be threatened.

Only love is real. You are all love incarnate. You are eternal. Nothing can harm you. Trust that—KNOW it in your heart. Then you will once again feel the peace of God. You will have returned Home.

**************************************

Here is a beautiful BBC video narrated by Sir David Attenborough. I guarantee it will make you feel far better about our world. We are blind to so much of our world’s beauty—and to the beauty of all life.

In the early 1980s, John took a spiritual development course and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides.
Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.”
