A beautiful place

Saturday June 11, 2022


A few weeks ago I expounded on “It’s all too beautiful”. Today I am continuing the beauty theme.
 
I have recently made a rediscovery of a beautiful place. And it is not far away.

Why do I consider it to be beautiful?
 
Firstly it fills me with peace and serenity. Secondly it brings me joy whether I am alone or with others. It is an oasis of tranquillity. It is open to the elements and on sunny days the manicured grass gleams a wonderful green. The whole area is bordered by a number of different trees and on one side by the old church tower with its chiming clock.
 
Where am I? Yes, I am at my local village bowling club. It is late May and the new bowling season is underway. I have visited a few times, enjoyed meeting old friends and also the relaxation of practising alone.
 
What I want to do this morning is to transport you to your beautiful place. There will be little effort involved and no cost! Please follow these few simple steps:
 
 *  Lean back in your chair, get comfortable and relax.
 
*   Close your eyes.
 
*   Think of somewhere lovely you have been; a beautiful place. It could be a place on a holiday, a local beauty spot, a building, garden or even a beach.
 
There are no limitations.
 
*  Spend a few minutes thinking more about it. What made it beautiful? 
 
*  Has your mood changed? Do you feel any different compared with how you felt before? 
 
Beauty comes in many forms, for example:
 
Breathtaking views
Melodious music
Tasty food
Scented flowers
Silky fabrics
 
It really is anything that gives pleasure to our senses. Even simply talking about it makes us feel better by lifting our mood.
 
A lot has been written about human beauty and after some research I found this quote from Elizabeth Kubler Ross:
 
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
 
Or if you want something more romantic:
 
“Real men don’t love the most beautiful girl in the world. They love the girl who can make their world the most beautiful.”
 
Cue:  Pass the virtual tissues!
