Carpe Diem #1319 Inner Beauty

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Back in 2013 I created a whole month about one of Paulo Coelho's most wonderful novels I have read, next to "The Alchemist" and "Aleph". That novel is titled "Manuscript Found In Accra" a really nice novel to read. Let me tell you all a little bit more about this novel.

As I read his first novel "The Alchemist" I was sold ... really a wonderful novel full of spirituality. In his "Manuscript found in Accra" he describes a wise young man who is answering all questions on life on the day before the city in which he lives and the people live will be attacked. In the novel this city is Jerusalem and it tells us in wonderful words how the people of Jerusalem are anxious to know how their life will look after the attack of The Moors ... all very spiritual questions and the wise young man gives wonderful answers.

"Manuscript found in Accra" is very similar with the novels of Kahlil Gibran e.g. "The Prophet", but in a very different and vivacious way Paulo Coelho's "Manuscript" touched me deeper.

Manuscript Found In Accra by Paulo Coelho (2013)

Today's quote is taken from this wonderful inspirational novel "Manuscript Found In Accra". I think this quote will be a great source of inspiration for you all ...

[...] "Outer beauty is inner beauty made visible, and it manifests itself in the light that flows from our eyes". [...] (Source: Manuscript Found In Accra - Paulo Coelho)

Isn't that something. As I look at myself I always say "Inner beauty is more important than the outer beauty", but as I read this quote ... Than I have to change my idea, because it's true ... outer beauty is the reflection of the inner beauty and through the outer beauty we learn about the inner beauty. This quote brought a image to my mind of a wonderful stone ... maybe you know that stone too ... I saw an image appear of Lapis Lazuli ...
In its rough form lapis lazuli is not very attractive, but once cultivated its inner beauty starts becoming more brilliant ... can you imagine that?

Lapis Lazuli (cultivated)
Lapis Lazuli's meaning:

Lapis Lazuli is a good protection stone because of all the protective energies that it holds. But it’s also a manifestation stone because it can help you make your dreams a reality!
It will help you gain the knowledge that you need to look at different situations clearly and objectively so that you will come to the best decision. It will also enhance your intellectual abilities, activate your higher mind, and sharpen your memory.
Lapis Lazuli is also what you need if you wish to experience spiritual growth. Just clutching the stone in your hands can help you reach a meditative state that will give your life peace and serenity!

Awesome! This gem is really powerful as is "Manuscript Found In Accra", in which you can find wonderful spiritual knowledge. By the way ... that strong presence of spirituality you can find in all the novels by Paulo Coelho.
