Give yourself to Beauty...

Give yourself to Beauty.
There has been nothing more refreshing and enervating for me along the way, than to focus on something higher and purer than what was staring me in the face from all directions and that I simply did not like.
Apart from adding more of something that I felt was deficient in the world to it, the creative activity of immersing myself in beauty - Nature, the Arts, People, Animals - brought me closer to 'true reality'; I genuinely saw that there's more to life than the unattracive, physical constructs we've created in our minds and our lives.
The refreshment of my mind and my spirit have served me well in my ability to create and to give meaningfully to the world.
I am inspired by Anne Frank in this way...
What remains... :
The words of Anne Frank are really meaningful given the tragic conditions which she lived in and the era when she wrote her beautiful work: World WarII, German-occupied Amsterdam. It is enriching to know that the beauty will always remain...
Give time to creating something beautiful in this world and be inspired by the beauty which exists already.
