One bright autumn day in 2009 I walked my dog through the hardwood forest behind my home and beyond through treed neighborhoods, drinking in the splendid colors on display. As i passed particularly remarkable trees I slowed my walk and remarked to myself, "Oh, it's so beautiful!" and "Ah, so beautiful." After many such comments, a response welled up within me, "Yes, my child, all for you!" My first reactions were fear of this presence within my mind, nakedness, shock! Gradually, i understood this to be an expression of divine love back to me - beauty pierced the fog of my existence and brought me in contact with God. The very next day I saw a stunning sunset and recognized it as a wink from God. These experiences proved to me God's manifestation through beauty. I feel blessed!
