The last of the 5 “dream” words in the boxes in my trunk was BEAUTY. It puzzled me for a long time, especially as it came at a time when I didn’t want to be seen only as an attractive woman. At the beginning I was vain enough to think this had to do with my old definition of beauty—should I stop wearing makeup—should I adapt a kind of “uniform” as a spiritual guide—and on and on.
Then I learned the spiritual meaning of this word which is best described by The Navajo Nation: To Walk in Beauty means to walk in harmony with all things including all people, objects, animals…with life!
More from Google: “‘To walk in beauty‘ means something like shalom in Hebrew or being in a state of grace in Christianity. Walking in beauty is being in harmony with everything around you – recognizing the beauty or connectedness of everything you see, even with those things that may not seem conventionally beautiful.”
The Universal Dance of Peace “May I Walk in Beauty” always touches my heart and soul and creates a moving sense of meditation. I hope that you can take time today and many days to listen to these words and sing along and possibly join in this adapted Native American dance in front of your device.
As they say in the Dances of Universal Peace: “ If you can walk, you can dance. If you can talk, you can sing.”
May we walk the beauty way today and everyday. Amen.
