David Hume's Essays, Moral and Political, 1742, include:
"Beauty in things exists merely in the mind which contemplates them."
Your opinion, is just that. Your opinion… All of us, at some point, have a different opinion, or view of things. Does that mean how you are viewing it? Seeing it? Or, about how it makes you feel. I heard recently
(not sure where!) that you can't view or see love. Love is inside us. The example was, when you are kissing a special loved one, are your eyes closed? They usually are. For, you are feeling that innermost amazement of love that hits your soul, and not your eyes. One of my very special moments are when I have my arms wrapped around my horse, my head is planted in the crease of his neck and my eyes are closed. The scent and the FEELING I have at that moment goes through my whole body. Love…
I remember the first time my husband brushed my hand with his. I actually mean, he lightly touched it. It was electrifying. Hmm, chemistry! Do you see chemistry, or feel it?
So, Beauty may be in the EYE of the beholder, but the feeling of LOVE comes from inside you.
My opinion, of course…
What's your view?
