Divine Beauty The Invisible Embrace Download ↠ 105 Courages our greater intimacy with beauty and celebrates it for what it really is a homecoming of the human spiritAs he focuses on the classical medieval and Celtic traditions on art music literature nature and language O'Donohue reveals how beauty's invisible embrace invites us towards new heights of passion and creativityDIVINE BEAUTY is an exuisite treasury of Forms of the Beautiful Its surface employs narrative image anecdote and myth while into the silence of its subtext are sown seeds of reflection that gradually blossom in the heart. As an author who fancies that he has some facility for using language reading Beauty was truly a humbling experience In fact other than Thomas Wolfe of You Can t Go Home Again fame in my sixty nine year reading odyssey I have never encountered a writer with such a gift of language as John O Donohue and I highly recommend reading Beauty to experience of the author s incredible ability to depict the various aspects of beauty and describe thoughts and feelings about it alone Add to this gift the author s immense powers of observation and wise insights and my opinion is that Beauty is one of the ten most important books that one could readLanguageah yes language I will not attempt to use adjectives and adverbs to further describe O Donohue s gift but instead supply a few of his phrases which were my favorites Time had come to rest in the silence and stillness of Loch Corrib the tired machinations of the ego are abandoned the interior geometry of things the automatic traffic of functioning addicts of the familiar imagination has retained the grace of innocence and the silent majesty of the ordinary And speaking of majesty Tom Verducci a columnist for Sports Illustrated recently opined that Defining majesty drives man to his literary boundaries I realized how true this was when I was faced with trying to adeuately communicate how gifted John O Donohue is and I would opine that John s boundaries were wide indeedContentah yes content After treating the reader to an Introduction defining beauty and its vital importance to our lives and our world O Donohue then separates his exploration of the subject into ten chapters Looking back on Beauty I think of it as a wheel with ten spokes The Call Of Beauty Where Does Beauty Dwell The Music Of Beauty The Color Of Beauty The Joy Of Shapes That Dance Imagination Beauty s Entrance Attraction The Eros Of Beauty The Beauty Of The Flaw The White Shadow Beauty And Death and God Is Beauty And in only 249 magnificent pages the author presents the reader with a wealth of knowledge and insights in the various aspects that compose the circle of beauty Each chapter is so full of thoughts and feelings that one reads and rereads constantly in an effort to drink it all in and hold it Then as I did the reader most like will say to his or herself I m going to read and reread these chapters one at a time over the rest of my lifetimeI conclude by again uoting Tom Verducci who observed of another writing that The knowledge and wisdom was so great as to invite our most ambitious attempts at commemoration My most ambitious attempt to commemorate O Donahue s Beauty is indeed feeble next to the genius of his work I can only urge my fellow readers to enter its pages and experience for yourselves It will change

Divine Beauty The Invisible Embrace Download ↠ 105 In this eagerly awaited follow up to his international bestsellers Anam Cara and Eternal Echoes John O'Donohue turns his attention to the subject of beauty the divine beauty that calls the imagination and awakens all that is noble in the human heartIn these uncertain times of global conflict and crisis we are riven with anxiety; our trust in the future has lost its innocence for we know now that anything can happen from one second to the next In such an unsheltered world it may sound naive to suggest that this might be the moment to invoke. The ancient rhythms of the earth have insinuated themselves into the rhythms of the human heart The earth is not outside us it is within the clay from where the tree of the body grows In written form this would perhaps be the kind of book one would read now and then when the mood struck A book to set a mood a book to have you sit a spell and ponder as my grandfather was wont to say This was the first audiobook I bought after I read my goodreads friend Glenn s review sometime last year Since Glenn had mentioned that the author himself had narrated this and the author s charming Irish brogue I had added it as my first audio It didn t take me long to realize that sitting in my house listening to this did not work for me and so I waited patiently for a long drive I didn t really mind having other books to read and sometimes I would just re listen to the beginning of this to remind me of what loveliness lay in store for me So yesterday I left early for a planned excursion to God s Kingdom God s Country to experience some of what nature must have first been intended to pass for beauty What better audio to listen to on my uest for that beauty than to listen to a book about beauty And in truth it was perfect I enjoyed listening to every second of thisThe only negative of listening and driving is not being able to highlight passages but I did not miss a thing at the same time This was lovely spiritual but not in a speaking from the pulpit way this a heart to heart spiritual connection shared on many topics The Music of Beauty The Color of Beauty are two of the ten topics Effortlessly as though you ve just sat down and he s pouring you a spot of tea he manages to transform his thoughts with a lyrical aura of beauty infusing the words as he speaks them Delicious swoon worthy splendid prose prose unveiling images with reverence for the wonder and awe of every day beauty What you encounter recognize or discover depends to a large degree on the uality of your approach Many of the ancient cultures practiced careful rituals of approach An encounter of depth and spirit was preceded by careful preparationWhen we approach with reverence great things decide to approach us Our real life comes to the surface and its light awakens the concealed beauty in things When we walk on the earth with reverence beauty will decide to trust us The rushed heart and arrogant mind lack the gentleness and patience to enter that embrace I would be remiss if I did not thank Glenn for not only pointing me to a book I love but to the wonderful experience of listening to this Magical Glenn s review The Nightingale Girls you sit a spell and ponder as my grandfather was wont to say This was the first audiobook I bought after I read my goodreads friend Glenn s review sometime last A
