306. Illumination

“Beauty is the illumination of your soul.”

― John O’DonohueAnam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

In a strange way this quote doesn’t relate directly to the threat of death and sorrow, but indirectly it has very much to do with it.

It makes me feel, as I read it, that Soul exists – that I am Soul.

Not just as a concept or metaphor, but something real, yet … undefinable.

And that is the power of all of John O’Donohue’s writings.
