Bewusstseinsebene von Schönheit
Rosa sp., Margaret Merril, Harkness 1980
Schönheit schwingt in Räumen, deren Energiefeld bei BW 500 und mehr liegt.
Die Rose ist ohne Warum.
Sie blühet, weil sie blühet.
Sie achtet nicht ihrer selbst,
fragt nicht, ob man sie siehet.

- Menschen erscheinen als arglos, da sie sich in extremer Weise ihrer Realität nicht bewusst und nicht gewahr sind. In diesem Zustand werden sie von programmierenden und illusorischen Glaubenssystemen in Gang gehalten. Gleichzeitig strahlt die Reinheit des GEISTES als ihre innere Schönheit hervor. FU Das All-sehende Auge, 2005
Quotes by D. Hawkins
'Personal' avowals / recognition
Receiving guidance by one's "own" SELF
- The incredible beauty of all things shone forth in all their perfection, and where the world saw ugliness, I saw only timeless beauty. I spent years in inner silence, and the strength of the Presence grew. I had no personal life; my personal will no longer existed; I was an instrument of the Infinite Presence, and I went about and did as it willed. People felt an extraordinary peace in the aura of that Presence. Seekers sought answers from me, but as there was no such individual as David any longer, I saw what they were doing was finessing answers from their own Self, which was not different from mine. Excerpted from D. Hawkins, Power vs. Force, presented by the US American magazine In Light Times, August 2004; cited in: Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, "Preface", S. 14-15, Hay House, February 2002
- Choose to see the beauty, perfection and sacredness of all life. Source unknown
Positive (strong) response (above 200) – Negative (weak) response (below 200)
- Aesthetic – Artsy
- Beautiful – Glamourous
- The innate beauty of all that exists becomes progressively apparent. All things become of equal value so that all life and all that exists are honored for their presence and the sheer fact of their existence. The perfection of all that exists stands forth, and the illusion of imperfectionism dissolves. Each and every thing is the perfect expression of its essence manifesting as its innate existence, simply by being what it is. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 218, 2003
- Exposure to classical music, reverence for beauty, some degree of any religion, and playing a little chess – criminality is unheard of for people who grow up with these influences. Exposure to spiritual integrity creates neuronal pathways that make it impossible to fall below integrity. This is what you can do for children to help them. Sedona Seminar Witnessing and Observing, 3 DVD set, 16. October 2004
- Question: When I am in the presence of beauty or love, tears come up. Is there a line between that and emotionality?
Answer: No, it’s a stage you go through and it may last for years. It has nothing to do with gender. You can look at two people looking at each other with a loving look and you begin to cry – or a beautiful aria from an opera – any kind of stunning beauty. It’s a sensitivity to beauty that arises, and as you get in the 500’s, it becomes almost continuous. You have to desist from certain activities because you break down and cry all the time. It may last some years. If people at work ask about it, just tell them the truth – that beauty makes you cry. It’s normal. It’s not emotion – because neurologically your brain changes. There’s a concept called neuroplasticity. Experience changes the chemistry of your brain physiology. The neuronal connections are always constantly changing. So crying is part of that shift of the energy balance and your brain is putting out endorphins. Someone who is upset all the time is putting out adrenalin. You walk into a great cathedral and you break into tears. You see what it took to create it. Sedona Satsang Q&A, 2 CD set, 10. January 2007
- The harmonics have triggered parts of the brain that can only be triggered by those harmonics – when you cry because of beautiful music. It’s not just because of the melody. The power of those fields is because of the impact of those harmonics that are transformative in a nonlinear field. It precipitates the miraculous – the harmonics. Sedona Satsang Q&A, 2 CD set, 10. January 2007

- Den Gott der Schönheit und der Güte auch im Hässlichen und im Bösen zu fühlen und zu lieben, und sich doch in äußerster Liebe zu sehnen, es von seiner Hässlichkeit und seinem Bösen zu heilen, das ist wahre Tugend und Moral.

- Die Schönheit verweilt nicht, sie besucht uns nur. Doch der Besuch der Schönheit ergreift uns und lädt uns ein, in ihrem Rhythmus mitzuschwingen, sie ruft uns dazu auf, schön zu fühlen, schön zu denken, schön zu handeln in der Welt: ein Leben zu schaffen und zu führen, welches das Schöne erweckt.
Ein Leben ohne Freude ist ein unvollständiges Leben […]. Sogar in den freudlosesten Zeiten, ja vielleicht gerade dann, können wir Schönheit entdecken und erwecken: dies genau sind die Phasen, wenn wir sie am nötigsten brauchen.
Die Freude, die uns die Schönheit schenkt, finden wir nirgends sonst. Freude ist nicht nur das Resultat der Umstände; wir können uns immer dazu entschließen, froh zu sein, ganz unabhängig von den Ereignissen um uns herum. […]
Der heilige Augustinus sagt: "Die Seele findet ihr Gleichgewicht durch das, was sie freut. Freude oder Vergnügen setzen die Seele an den Platz, der ihr gebührt. Wo Freude ist, da ist auch Reichtum".

[Women] Do not let your adorning be external – the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear – but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. 1 Peter 3, 3-5 (NT)
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3, 11 (NT)
- Then it was as if I suddenly saw the secret beauty of their hearts, the depths where neither sin nor desire can reach, the person that each one is in God's eyes.
If only they could see themselves as they really are. If only we could see each other that way there would be no reason for war, for hatred, for cruelty. […] we would fall down and worship each other.

- Being is desirable because it is identical with Beauty, and Beauty is loved because it is Being. We ourselves possess Beauty when we are true to our own being; ugliness is in going over to another order; knowing ourselves, we are beautiful; in self-ignorance, we are ugly.

- Withdraw into yourself and look; and if you do not find yourself beautiful as yet, do as does the sculptor of a statue [...] cut away all that is excessive, straighten all that is crooked, bring light to all that is shadowed. [...] [D]o not cease until there shall shine out on you the Godlike Splendour of Beauty; until you see temperance surely established in the stainless shrine. Plotinus [LoC 730; works 503] (205-270) Greek philosopher, Enneads 1, 6, 9
- Withdraw into yourself and look. And if you do not find yourself beautiful yet, act as does the creator of a statue that is to be made beautiful: he cuts away here, he smoothes there, he makes this line lighter, this other purer, until a lovely face has grown his work. So do you also: cut away all that is excessive, straighten all that is crooked, bring light to all that is overcast, labor to make all one glow or beauty and never cease chiseling your statue, until there shall shine out on you from it the godlike splendor of virtue, until you see the perfect goodness surely established in the stainless shrine. Plotinus [LoC 730; works 503] (205-270) Greek philosopher
- Disciple: What is it that creates physical beauty?
Sri Aurobindo: There is a certain vital glow which is really not beauty – when it is overpowering and full of personal magnetism it is dangerous.
Disciple: Does the artist get his form from the vital only?
Sri Aurobindo: No. But these arts are such that they require their stand in the vital. There may be other elements in them but the vital is indispensable. In fact, the highest poetry cannot come unless through the vital. One may take the elements from the mind or emotion or other parts according to necessity.
Disciple: How far is mind a factor in the process?
Sri Aurobindo: If you mean the intellectual mind it has a very little part – though it, too, has a part. The whole process is very complicated. The first impulse is given by the vital and then there is communication with the higher mind – the intuitive faculty. Then something from there comes down to the heart and the artist again takes it up into the mind, and gives expression to it.
Disciple: That is to say, something from above comes down through intuition.
Sri Aurobindo: Yes, some power from above. I use the word "Intuition" in the general sense for all the faculties that act; more properly it is "Inspiration".

- When power becomes gracious and descends into the visible — such descent I call beauty. And there is nobody from whom I want beauty as much as from you who are powerful: let your kindness be your final self-conquest. Of all evil I deem you capable: therefore I want the good from you. Verily, I have often laughed at the weaklings who thought themselves good because they had no claws.

- In beauty may I walk.
All day long may I walk.
Through the returning seasons may I walk.
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.
With grasshoppers about my feet may I walk.
With dew about my feet may I walk.
With beauty may I walk.
With beauty before me, may I walk.
With beauty behind me, may I walk.
With beauty above me, may I walk.
With beauty below me, may I walk.
With beauty all around me, may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk.
It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.
Navajo beauty way prayer
Time to stand and stare
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?
