True nature, the Essence of the soul, is valuable, is worthy of appreciation of love, not because it gives her something, not because it adds to her, not because it liberates her, but because it is beautiful. Its value is in its beauty and perfection. Its truth is its value, and this truth is the essence of all beauty. The beauty of a form turns out to be this transparency to true nature. The more a manifest form expresses and embodies true nature with its timeless features, the more the eyes of the soul behold it as beautiful. Beauty is a reflection of truth, and is ultimately true nature. And the dimension of true nature that reveals this essential beauty is that of divine love.
