Beauty Will Save The World
In 2015 my brother-in-law Dan Nicholas, educator, poet, and yoga history and philosophy faculty for Super Yoga Palace's Yoga School, introduced me to Fyodor Dostoevsky's quote: “beauty will save the world.” Those five words have become my manifesto. Before putting energy into anything, I ask myself, is this good, is this true, is this beautiful, and then I trust the answer that comes.
Last night Josh and I watched one of the most beautiful, moving, short choreographed films I've ever seen, titled Love Me Like You Hate Me, directed by Oliva Wilde. 9 minutes and 53 seconds later, I felt filled in a way I haven't been able to put into words, and I don't feel like I need to. The visual will say everything it needs to say to you.
