Lepidolite 
Eco Sterling Silver & Sterling Silver

 

Sometimes life strikes me as so unnecessarily beautiful. People create the marvellous and extraordinary for no other reason than because it’s possible and because the alternative is to add nothing. To leave others and the world untouched.

The other day I happened upon a garden in a poor, urban neighbourhood, all concrete and paving slabs. In the middle of this metropolis, a woman had built a garden. With no soil, she had bought hundreds of pots and filled them with nature’s array of shades: purples, yellows, oranges and deep greens. Amongst the grey, this garden shone. Bringing joy to those who passed and in turn, she herself emanated a luminosity. Leaving her small section of the world slightly better for her having been there.

It’s true to say that the polarity also exists. We are capable, as a species, of much destruction and evil. It would be disrespectful to turn a blind eye to this truth, but equally, we have a choice as to where we focus our attention. We could dwell on the acts of evil and as a result imagine a sinful and selfish human nature, or we could meditate on our capacity to be good way above and beyond our evolutionary imperative.

Living beautifully is an art. It is not simply about aesthetics and what pleases the eye but is also how we pass through the world, what we see in it and the impact we have on those around us.

Our capacity to appreciate the beautiful also influences our ability to create it. If we can see the profundity in the simple, the spiritual in the everyday, then I think we can also understand how to live beautifully.
