When you see a beautiful painting, sculpture, or other work of art, and you feel a certain feeling about it, how does it make you feel? Does it actually MAKE you feel, or, do YOU make that feeling? When you hear a song, watch a dancing performance, or see someone, whom you find beautiful, and you feel something, that feeling was already in you and you relaxed enough to allow that feeling to be felt. When you love someone and you know they love you, there are some "extra" feelings there and you relax and you not only love the person, but also, you love your love and you love her/his love all the more.
It's letting down the barriers, releasing the inhibitions, knowing that it is safe to love and to be loved, that allow us to be elevated to our true selves, our honest selves, our pure selves. When we've stopped blocking others, we transcend and ascend to our higher selves and therein we reconnect to our own true power and potential.
There is a place of peace inside us all. How do we get there? Relax, let go, and trust. When you find your unique self, you also find that you have something to contribute to others, which no one else can ever do. Your unique "you" is as good as, as talented as, as perfect as anyone you have ever met. When you admire another person, you are also seeing the good in yourself, that you maybe forgot was there. It is there. It is always there. You can ignore it, cover it up, pretend, lie, or walk away from it, but it is there.
