Corridor of Gracefulness

graceskyGrace is the quality of manifesting beauty, every soul innately possesses it yet by conforming to the disharmonious ways of society, we tend to lose our grace as we abide by materialistic, coarse standards of life that distract us from our true whole selves. The further away from conformism, attachment, and fear of the fast-paced life of compulsion, the greater our grace and refinement. Often, in regions remote from materialistic society are found deeply evolved graceful people, it’s ironic that at some point in history they were labeled as “uncivilized” when they, in fact, are most cultured and civilized as their peaceful ways toward other beings and Natures suggest.

In this age, one great impediment to grace is the widespread rigidity imposed on us by the usurping establishment. Besides those who strive to preserve their grace (those who consciously resist all forms of societal imposition), I have found that the most graceful beings seem to be babies, children and the elderly, which is interesting because they respectively represent the pure soul who has just come to experience the world or who is preparing to exit the world to mingle anew with the majesty of Subtlety. Thus, grace is primordial, it is the consequence of spiritual Surrender; our natural state. One who has grace is most gentle as such a soul is in harmony with the peaceful atmosphere of the highest spheres, by just being itself it contributes to an essential aspect of evolution within the collectivity … so let us re~cultivate the heart that leads through the corridor of gracefulness
