Beauty lies within each of us upon the earth.
It lies within the core of all knowing.
For some, the beauty travels through
time and space to be seen by all.
For others, the beauty lays dormant
waiting to spread its wings and fly.
When you come upon a person
who has not yet learned to let their beauty shine
judge not, for it is not your place.
Step into their shoes and walk their walk.
Feel their pain.
Understand their struggles.
Know their truth
lend them your shoes
so they may feel love. ♥sKr♥

“When a caged bird sings,
birds flying in the sky are thereby
summoned and gather around; and when
the flying birds gather around, the bird
in the cage strives to get out.” ♥ Nichiren
I was led to this quote shortly after writing the above. It’s easy to see the similarities. When the strong gather around those who are feeling weak or trapped, it gives the weak the courage to find their inner strength and beauty and fly. Sometimes, all people need are to borrow someone else’s shoes and have a walk around in them to know what they are missing. Strength comes from within yea, yea.
BUT, we all know what a new pair of shoes can do! (even if they are “used” they are “new” to someone in need!)
Love, light, and peace
