“Beauty is the illumination of your soul.”
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.
