5 Minute Invitation – Read

10 Minute Invitation – Read and Listen

15 Minutes or More – Read, Listen and Reflect

Welcome to Being Beautiful – Day 03.  An invitation in learning how to treasure the REAL you.

All journeys begin with Intention, move through Attention and result in Action

Without clear intention you take The Road More Travelled By. You take The Voyage and Return Journey that leads to suffering without insight and meaning.

Without clear Intention (Sankalpa) you do not follow your destiny.

Without clear intention you are consigned to your fate. This is in many ways fatal.

Intention is not goal setting.

There is Primary intention. There is Secondary intention.

Intention is direction without attachment to a particular result.

Goal setting is direction with attachment to a particular result.

Conscious Primary Intention is the first step on the journey to Being Beautiful.

Lancelot and the Holy Grail by Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898)

Be (From Johnathan Livingstone Seagull)

Lost
On a painted sky
Where the clouds are hung
For the poet’s eye
You may find him
If you may find him

There
On a distant shore
By the wings of dreams
Through an open door
You may know him
If you may

Be
As a page that aches for a word
Which speaks on a theme that is timeless
And the one God will make for your day

Sing
As a song in search of a voice that is silent
And the sun
God will make for your way

And we dance
To a whispered voice
Overheard by the soul
Undertook by the heart
And you may know it
If you may know it

While the sand would become the stone
Which begat the spark
Turned to living bone
Holy, holy
Sanctus, sanctus

Be
As a page that aches for a word
Which speaks on a theme that is timeless
While the one God will make for your day

Sing
As a song in search of a voice that is silent
And the one God will make for your way

Neill Diamond – Singer/Songwriter

Today’s Poem/Prayer/Song

I thought that my voyage had come to its end
at the last limit of my power,—that the path before me was closed,
that provisions were exhausted
and the time come to take shelter in a silent obscurity.

But I find that thy will knows no end in me.
And when old words die out on the tongue,
new melodies break forth from the heart;
and where the old tracks are lost,
new country is revealed with its wonders.

Rabindranath Tagore

Today’s Quotation

Destiny itself is like a wonderful wide tapestry in which every thread is guided by an unspeakably tender hand, placed beside another thread and held and carried by a hundred others.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke
