to see beauty

to be able to pause for a moment, however brief,
and see the beauty in something
is a transcendent experience
it requires that we put down our obsession
with self, thought, or emotion
it requires that we stop our addiction to doing
and our attachment to time
and in that gap
we may fall into the timeless space of wonder
outside the realm of mind
and everything it thinks it knows
and into a vast eternal love
where the beauty of us
meets the beauty of the other
as one and the same

this is the miracle of being human
that we can be in the world
but not of the world
at the same time.
