Beauty and Source

We ascribe beauty to that which is simple; which has no superfluous parts; which exactly answers its end; which stands related to all things; which is the mean of many extremes.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


I find this great. Especially the last half, those three statements are extremely deep.

... "which stands related to all things"... You will notice this says that beauty is holistic. Beauty gives a hint of The All. Of Source. of Truth.

I've always felt this myself, and although I have tried for 40 years, I have yet to explain it: that when we experience beauty, it is on some level an experience of the light of Source.
