Thursday Thoughts: Universal Beauty

There’s a lot of ugly in the world right now, and not just in actions but in hearts. I’m old school. I believe in civil discussions about differences, a give-and-take debate over topics two people disagree about. That’s not happening any longer. It makes me sad. It makes me mad. And it makes me want to shake my “mother finger” and send people to time out. Or bang their heads together. The Universe dropped this into my inbox some time ago, as if the big U knew what was coming.

Looks change, Silver.

Beauty lasts.

The “thing” that makes beauty, Silver, lies within all.

Too bad so many people are finding the ugly inside instead of the beauty. There was a time when it was okay to disagree, when folks could still sit down together, could be friends though they held differing views. Not that way anymore. I just hope that things that can’t be taken back won’t be said, that friendships won’t be so ripped apart that nothing will put them back together.

Me? I’ll keep my head down, my thoughts and views to myself, and I’ll write and read books set in worlds where love finds away. And I’ll look hard for that thing that makes beauty in everyone.

  1. LOL, I have to work hard not to shake my ‘other’ finger, or I’m constantly flipping off the TV. Luckily, here in rural America, I don’t run into many people in person who need the other finger because using it could be hazardous to my health. I once flipped off a particularly hazardous driver on a freeway in Detroit and he promptly pulled in front of me and slammed on his brakes. I avoided hitting him and did my own promptly by promptly getting off the freeway. Scary stuff, man.

    There is beauty everywhere. Find it and hold onto it when it seems like everything else is ugly. :hugs:

    I so agree Silver.
    Makes me nervous of the world
    that kids now will be growing up in.
    Have a good day.
