“THE WARRIOR PRINCESS”|
(acrylic on canvas\100x100\2011)
Do not tell me that I am beautiful
first take time, to discover the integrity, depth and sensitivity of my heart and soul….and only then, I will believe you when you tell me that I am beautiful….
Beauty, is thát which attracts your soul, and that which loves to give and not to receive. When you meet Beauty, you feel that the hands deep within your inner self are stretched forth to bring her into the domain of your heart. It is the magnificence combined of sorrow and joy
it is the unseen which you see, and the Vague which you understand, and the Mute which you hear
it is the Holy of Holies that begins in yourself and ends vastly beyond your earthly imagination…
"I would not exchange the sorrows of my heart,
for the joys of the multitude.
And I would not have the tears that sadness makes,
To flow from my every part turn into laughter.
I would that my life remain a tear and a smile…
A tear, to purify my heart and give me understanding,
of life's secrets and hidden things.
A smile, to draw me right to those of my kind and,
to be a symbol of my glorification of the gods.
A tear, to unite me with those of broken heart and pain
A smile, to be a sign of my joy in existence”….
~ Kahlil Gibran
