The Path of Beauty and Walking the Path of Beauty
Saturday,May 12, 2018

"In beauty I walk
With beauty before me I walk
With beauty behind me I walk
With beauty above me I walk
With beauty around me I walk
It has become beauty again
It has become beauty again
It has become beauty again
It has become beauty again"
I Walk in Beauty
Traditional Navajo Prayer1

The "Blogging Circle of Friends prompt for DAY 2004:
The Path of Beauty.

The Path of Beauty

Hozho, pronounced Ho′zho′, is a Navajo referring to "balance and beauty"2. I first learned about this idea and the Navajo prayer a few days ago when I was listening to the blogcast "Navajo Tradition and the Baha’i Teachings"3 by Nanabah Bulman on the Baha'i Blog4. While I was listening to the blogcast, I had an epiphany about the spiritual path I walk. I realized that, despite the tests, difficulties, and stress I have encountered on my spiritual path I am walking the path of beauty because beauty is a spiritual attribute. Seeing beauty in the difficulties of life encourages balance and resilience.


Walking the Path of Beauty

The path of beauty,
is a spiritual path leading
through test and difficulties.

I do not walk this path alone
walking beside me is the Ancient Beauty,
the Blessed Beauty,
the Glory of God,
Baha'u'llah.5
