Only beauty can save us.

Not the physical beauty of men or women that leads to passion and tragedy – the beauty that can save us is spiritual beauty.

Through meditation and contemplation, we must endeavour to sense this beauty, to clothe ourselves in it, to become imbued with it, for it is this which protects us from beauty that deceives. A child dressed in a new suit does not need to be especially bright to sense that it must not get it dirty by playing in the gutter.

Similarly, when you have reached the world of true beauty – which is pure light – and your aura is infused with this light, you have no desire to go just anywhere and soil this beautiful garment. So, it is this beauty that saves you.

Obviously, as long as you feel like someone in their old overalls wading in the mud, the manure heap or the sludge, you will not recoil from any kind of filth or impurity.
