Order Before Beauty

You must have order before beauty.  But what kind of order? Where is it? How do we attain it?  How do you create order in the midst of the chaos in your home, office, desk, car or the racing non-stop thoughts swirling around in your head?

What if you just stopped completely for a few minutes, closed your eyes and visualized something beautiful?  A sunny day on the beach, sitting on a porch in the mountains, a vase filled with flowers, the sky, a rainbow, the face of a loved one.  Now add the sounds to your picture, the waves of the ocean, the rustling of the leaves, laughter, whatever music that comes to mind or the luxury of complete silence.  Then add the most important part- the feeling you want to achieve- calmness, serenity, peacefulness, harmony, enthusiasm, vibrant energy.  Sit with this for a few moments.

Creating order within allows us to reveal the beauty outside of ourselves that becomes our environment. Focusing on the feeling we wish to have makes it easier to step into action.  Whether it is a made bed, organized desk, folded laundry or all the toys put away for the night, the feeling it brings leads us beauty.  Try it on a few times and see what works for you.  For some, putting a beautiful vase in the center of a cluttered table leads us to remove the mess.  For others, the table must be cleared before the vase can be set down.  It doesn’t matter which camp you are in, everyone has their own process.

It all begins with our internal order and capturing the feeling we desire then moving into demonstrating more beauty in our physical world.
