Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes Of The Day

Hello Readers,

Today I'll also deviate from the numerical line-up of quotes for another of my highly regarded quotes I've just written. Then return to the normal order of spiritual wisdom based quotations I've writtened.

Enjoy.

771) From our perspective here on earth as mortals we fell from grace in the symbolic chronicle of "Adam & Eve". This is only partly true and the rest of this understanding is skewed by conditional foresight.

From the perspective from Heaven there was no falling from grace. Just a transition of one form of living into another. Much like the catepillar transforms itself into a lovely and gentle butterfly.

From the human perspective we are sinners and full of fault. In the eyes of God we are growing and full of life. We may have transitioned into this world of form. But who is to say that we have actually left the side of God within his throne in Heaven. We are in both places at once as by a miraculous act of his grace. Amen. ---Ivan / Atrayo.

(Now returning to the regular sequence of quotes)

767) What is Beauty?

Beauty has an inherent balance by its aesthetics. A symmetry of order that fills us with a sense of awe and appreciation. Beauty is living art whether by its contrast or gesture. It is a representation of the Divine in all of us. A sacred union of souls that transcends often our comprehension of its depths of magnitude. Beauty is what it is, wonder that is manifested! ---Ivan / Atrayo.

768) What is the hallmark of a dignified spirit? It is carrying out the precepts of silent and humble conduct. That one is not grand standing in order to receive praise or adoration from the vanity of others. So as to enact a sense of confirmation of being valued. One is independent from such leanings and also binded to the lovely nature of modest conduct. Amen. ---Ivan / Atrayo.
