“Liberation brings godliness.
When you realize the godliness,
the natural, pure beauty in everything is visible.
Glittering beauty of this life becomes visible.
Everyone looks beautiful.
Everything looks beautiful.
Once you are able to experience this divine beauty,
you become beauty and whatever you touch,
whatever you create becomes beautiful.”
