A young person who is dear to me recently made comments about herself suggesting that she thought she wasn’t pretty.
May she truly understand the truth of my reply to her:
“I wish that you could see the beauty within you that I see when I look at you. You are beautiful on the outside too, but to me, one’s internal beauty is far more radiant and important than mere external beauty. I wish a mirror could be invented that would allow you to see your internal beauty, for if you did, you’d see the goodness and greatness within you.”
The soul has been given its own ears,
to hear things,
the mind does not understand.
