Weary Of Life?
When I saw the above picture quote I was reminded of a psychological-thriller movie that I saw some years ago where a psychiatrist wife who was an artist and had herself struggled with suicidal tendencies told her husband to remind a young suicidal man that he was dealing with that there was too much beauty in the world to let go so easily.
But then it is easy to understand that when people no longer see the beauty, only the ugliness, no longer find the joy, but are racked with constant pain, that they may opt for life to cease. We all, at one time or another, have been tempted to give up on life and have had reason to question the Bible promise below:
We have all been tempted as Hamlet was with the question, “To be or not to be?”
I believe beauty is our way out, our escape, from the temptation to end it all. I tried my best for twenty years to believe as many more seem to believe each day that death is the end and that we all die just like dogs. The animated movie series contends that all dogs go to heaven. I am inclined to believe that heaven is a state of mind where we allow our minds to entertain beauty in all its wonderful forms. “Love (beauty) is all around us. It’s everywhere we go.” The soul’s most singular prayer to our higher power is the rest of that song quote: “If you really love me, come on and let it show.”
The promise is that He/She always will, just hang on, till the answer comes.
