Sometimes I think the world is beautiful
Then it appears really beautiful.

Sometimes I think the world is ugly
The it appears really ugly.

Is there any real beauty?
Is there any real beauty?

I'am blind.
I'm deaf.
I'am dumb.
I have no sensation of touch
I have no sensation smelling.

If beauty is eternal,
If beauty is truth,
If beauty is ‘joy for ever'
If beauty is divine,

How can I enjoy beauty?

The beauty of morning, noon, evening
The beauty of spring, winter, summer
The beauty of sunny day, cloud-coloured day
The beauty of moonlight night,
The beauty of colour, pleasing-grove
The beauty of warmth and coolness
The beauty of tranquillity
The beauty of murmur of brook
The beauty of chattering of birds
The beauty of silent mountain
The beauty of love, affection, respect
The beauty of speaking, singing
The beauty of gentle breeze, north-wind,
The beauty of tempest, eddy
The beauty of fragrance of flower
The beauty of imagination, poem
The beauty of art, culture

All appear meaningless to me.

May be meaningful to others.
So what?
To me there is no existence of beauty.
But If I think beauty is there
Then beauty is there.

Beauty depends on me
Just on me, upon me...
Within me...

On my mind,
On my eyes,
On my thought,
On my strength, broadness, taste,
On my hearing power,
On my speaking power
On my feelings, perception,
Realisation, experience,
Comprehension, emotion
Learning, nature, conception,
Connection proximity,
consciousness, sub-consciousness....

Beauty depends upon
Time, place, sequence, condition,
Attention, reason, establishment,
Attitude, state, desire, tendency,
Habit, introspection, training,

Inner look
And outlook.
