“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart” Helen Keller
In order to truly live you must see and feel with your heart. Seeing laughter does nothing until you feel it in your heart. When you do, you’ll laugh along with others.
Most people ignore misery because they look only with their eyes. They see it with disgust. Those who see and feel it in their heart know what misery does to a person’s soul. They can feel for the other person. Those are the people who will lend a helping hand.
Many relationships end too quickly because one or both only sees with their eyes. The relationships that last a lifetime are where both have opened their hearts to each other. That is when you no longer see what the other person looks like, but who the other person is, what they are on the inside.
The greatest artists and builders are the ones who bring forth what their hearts feel, not what their eyes see. You and I may see a bridge, but they see a pathway to adventure and the great unknown. We may see just a woman posing, while the artist sees her inner beauty, or her anguished soul.
If you really want to see beauty, open your heart and let whatever image your eyes are looking at enter into it. Let yourself feel the image. Let your heart show you what you’ve been missing. Let your heart show you what beauty really is.
You’ll never look at the world the same way again.
