I think that it is pleasant for many to look at a pretty girl’s face from the cover of a glossy magazine, to a sweet child, to an elegant man. We admire the beautiful people. Antoine de Saint-Exupery in his landmark fairy tale “The Little Prince” said: “The most important thing is what you will not see with your eyes.” What is this “that”? What is the most important thing for us, what we do not see? Soul? The sincere beauty of a person is actually invisible. But somehow it shows up. In mercy, sensitivity, the ability to love… Let us remember the kind monster Nastenka fell in love just for the beauty of the soul.
The image of the bell ringer Quasimodo from the “Notre Dame de Paris” Hugo, under whose appearance were bright feelings. But an ugly look is much harder to preserve sincere beauty than ordinary people. It is physically deprived of God physically, they are often angry at the whole world. What is the beauty of the soul you need to own, so as not to be offended in such circumstances at all?
Once I read in a newspaper the story of a girl chained to an invalid carriage. This girl got married and, as she said, very happy. Grandmothers near the entrance, of course, dissolve gossip: “This girl is an invalid and suddenly – a wedding! Well, what kind of wife is a cripple?” Grandmothers did not know that the girl was not ordinary, but “wonderful” – that’s what her husband calls her. They did not even know that the young couple had a lot of friends who came to their house to talk with a cheerful and hospitable mistress. And for them there is no wheelchair, they simply do not notice it…
The beauty of the inner is invisible, it is reflected in the actions of a person – in his soul. It is harmony with yourself and the surrounding light. It destroys the wall of misunderstanding, evil, hatred. It warms everyone who is next to the person she radiates. Does anyone know where this spiritual and beauty comes from? And where does the mental injury come from? It seems to me that they are born with this.
It is a pity only that people who are beautiful with sincere beauty are so few. But they are there and this inspires optimism. Probably, one who does not appreciate this beauty will not appreciate anything in a person, not even an attractive appearance…
And I’m sure that sincere spiritual beauty is the very beauty that will save the world.... It happens that a person who has heard or read about a large oil slick in some sea will think: “Ah, it does not concern me, and so it’s full of worries!” The same person on a day off goes with his family to the forest – to relax in nature. Going, leaves behind a pile of garbage and a lifeless pyre. So what? After all, to a huge amount of oil in the sea, he does not care…
The fact that our planet is experiencing an ecological crisis, I, of course, sympathize. Like most people, I did not think about it. Cutting down Forrests? So what? After all, what can be seen from my window is not thinned out! Are rivers polluted? I swim in the pool and drink mineral water. Are animals destroyed? And my cat Marquis alive is healthy.
Somehow, resting in the summer at the dacha, I went swimming in the pond – there are no swimming pools in the village. I hardly entered the water, I felt a strong pain in the foot of my right foot. She climbed ashore and examined her leg. Well, that’s right, something was cut. I limped for a few days and thought: “Well, who threw a rusty piece of iron into the water?” Whom did this occur to? ” Then I realized that this came to the mind of a man like me. A man who believed that the environment is something that does not concern him. Hence, this applies to all.
Why do not we pay attention to what is going on around us? Why not save the “house” – our Earth? Why do not we respect the nature that protects us? Although, of course, there is much talk now about the need to protect and protect the environment. Or is it too late? I want to believe that no.
Sometimes it seems to me that the apocalypse all the same can explode – we ourselves will destroy our planet. No comet, no earthquake and no global warming, and we are people. Someone is led by a greed for profit, someone simply professes the philosophy of “pofigism.” They try to do something “green”, but they still do not succeed.
I understand that all the plants with their pipes that smoke do not stop, the number of cars with their exhaust fumes can not be reduced. But if everyone at least throws cans of Coca-Cola and ice cream sticks in urns, does not leave piles of rubbish in the forest after a picnic, carefully extinguish fires – that will be fine already.
