Sept. 14, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener
Monday, Sept. 14, 2015

Beauty that only appeals to the eye is shallow and is of short duration. A thought is only beautiful if it inspires beautiful action. A masterpiece of painting is a masterpiece only if it inspires people to beautiful thinking. Mechanical perfection is only good craftsmanship unless it provides a need for humanity.

A thing of beauty is one that serves a beautiful purpose. If your actions are not motivated by lofty ideals and purposes, you are denying yourself much that is beautiful in life.
