Sometimes our settings or circumstances on the outside are so beautiful and inspiring that remembering the beauty within is easy – almost automatic.
But what about when that’s not the case? On a recent walk, Tristan shares how our ideas – even beautiful ideas – can be a distraction from what’s REALLY beautiful in our lives.
How about for you? Has that ever been your experience? Where the ‘remembers’ pull you out of the beauty of the actual moment?
Or have you found what works for you? What states of beauty on the outside seem to make feeling those states on the inside easier? When you find those things, use them. Treasure them.
They make it easy to awaken more deeply to your inner experience and what that feels like inside.
And then, when those moments of outer beauty and ‘ease’ aren’t happening, you’ll remember that just because the outer reflection isn’t there, doesn’t mean the inner beauty isn’t still happening.
That’s an illusion. That’s like believing that because you put your mirror in a drawer, your face has gone away.
Nope. Your face is still there.
So let’s allow ourselves to experience the beauty that’s always waiting for us in this moment.
And as always, if you enjoyed this, please feel free to share your experience with us in the comment section below.

Wow that is beautiful, I found part of me in that beautiful place when I watched it.
Thanks for sharing and the reminder that beauty is within.
Thanks Mahlon! That right there is what makes this worth doing.
I remember a satori moment years ago. I was sitting in the court yard of San Diego City College planning out my life and future career. I remember feeling my stress rise as I thought of all the requirements and all the time it would take for me to build my life. Then, suddenly I realized how much time and angst I was putting into stressing about the future. I was actually missing the moment! I thought of how often I do this! It was a real wake up call. Of course, since then I have lapsed back into the old stress pattern many times, but that moment in that courtyard was a true awakening. I get better at staying in and enjoying the moment as time goes on. It is a journey! Thanks, Trisbrina!
Beautiful, Bonnie! Thank you for sharing! <3
