Creating beauty

“Whenever you are creating beauty around you, you are restoring your own soul.” ~Alice Walker

Beauty comes in many forms—from music to visual art to the written word to a well-cooked meal to a kind word or deed.

What kind of beauty will you create today? In offering that beauty to the world, you will find that you are also restoring your own soul.

Soul calls us to ordinary life

“Soul calls us to ground ourselves in the blood, sweat, and tears of ordinary life. Rather than rising above these things, it invites us to find life and meaning in the midst of them.” ~David G. Brenner

So many think of spirituality as something that is opposed to ordinary life that causes us to transcend the everyday trials, challenges, and monotony we face. But our soul is not calling us away from ordinary life, but deeper into it.

Soul wants us to enter ordinary life fully and completely so that we find richer life and meaning in the very midst of our everyday, ordinary lives.
