Questions

What is inner Beauty? How do I recognize it in others? How do I recognize it in myself? How does one cultivate inner beauty, especially when there are questions about what it is and how to recognize it?

Reflection

What is inner Beauty?

Inner Beauty is Knowing, seeing the Truth of Oneness–being not just connected with “others”, because even connection implies different things being connected–but Knowing that this consciousness, perceiving, is knowing and feeling with-as every other consciousness on the planet.

How do I recognize it in others?

This question becomes irrelevant when you Know and see the Truth of Oneness. Recognition implies that there is something other which must be recognized. There is no other. It’s all I-AM. How would I not recognize “it” in myself?

How do I recognize it in myself.

I think this question was answered above.

So I am going to answer this question from a relative standpoint, from the material standpoint, from that standpoint which does not yet Know and see the Truth of Oneness. Thus:

How do I recognize it in myself? In other words: “How do I, as an individual consciousness, come to recognize the Knowing and seeing the Truth of Oneness, even as I maintain my identity as an individual consciousness?”

First, I hope your rational-brain has recognized that even the paraphrased question answers itself: individual consciousness and Knowing and seeing the Truth of Oneness are mutually exclusive.

Second, do you now also see that this is the answer to the skeptic, who made an appearance at the end of day 20? and

Third: since the answer is “you can’t” to the paraphrased question above, the real question is, “how do I train my individual consciousness into Knowing and seeing the Truth of Oneness?” That answer is: Keep expanding your consciousness intending to Know and see the Truth of Oneness. (and my plug: keep doing these Consciousness Journeys!)

How does one cultivate inner beauty, especially when there are questions about what it is and how to recognize it?

The individual consciousness is what limits people from Knowing and seeing the Truth of Oneness. Oneness must be pushed through the mold of individual consciousness, thus Oneness “becomes” the shape of that mold. If you would Know and see the Truth of Oneness, expand your mold to encompass the Truth of Oneness.
