Invisible Beauty

“Beauty is a primeval phenomenon, which itself never makes its appearance, but the reflection of which is visible in a thousand different utterances of the creative mind, and is as various as nature herself.” -Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

This following piece and author is NEW to me just tonight - so please don't hold me responsible for the entire blog as I haven't yet checked out the work and sure don't know about the medical tips - if they are even sound. However, I was wanting a bit of a break from my heavier research and postings. So, here in the middle of my night - after visiting some friend's blogs with all their beauty and truth - I thought how often truest beauty is invisible.

Here, then, is what I suddenly found. I can take this little personal slice of Dr. Miller's off hand wonder into my own delightful places. Can you?

Also, I see that this doctor is quite generous to share what is known of health and applications along with the love of and experiences with the arts. The ending here, is quite amusing as well as wise :) (blogger, Connie)


Poetry is to seek beauty all invisible
By Dr. Miller:

Yes. Poetry is to seek beauty all invisible to the naked eye, the whole truth hidden..

I put myself in search of my character, which is actually somewhere. Yun Jung-hee is a legendary actress of Korean cinema of 1960s and 1970s, (who)was married with a pianist, lived in Paris and stopped playing for sixteen years. Yet from the moment I had in mind Mi-ja, I think of her. I do not know her well, but it was an instinctive feeling. Mi-ja has a beauty that goes against the passage of time, like a dried flower. It is old but speaks like a reckless girl eternal. ...the character was also the rather unrealistic Yun Jung-hee. Moreover, by pure chance, and maybe ...not ultimately was the real surname Yun Jung-hee is also Mi-ja.

How would you describe your relationship with the Festival de Cannes in 2007, you had this Secret Sunshine, which won the Best Actress. In 2009, you were a member of the jury. This year, you received the prize scenario for Poetry.

But I am a film director among many others. In reality, I do not like climbing stairs! The tuxedo, bow tie, I feel that all this does not suit me. When I am standing on the red carpet with flashing lights, I wonder what I’m doing.

I have already forgotten everything! The quota system (note: that promotes national film production) was considerably weakened. The Korean government wanted it that way for signing a free-exchange with the United States. It is in this context that I leave my office. The American oppression has succeeded.

I found the above piece at Dr. Miller's Blog here


Now, I want to end with a poem and the metaphor of water as the miracle between us which helps form invisible beauty of all kinds:

From Rumi:

The beauty of the heart

is the lasting beauty:

its lips give to drink

of the water of life.

Truly it is the Water,

that which pours,

and the one who drinks.

All three become one when

your talisman is shattered.

That oneness you can't know

by reasoning.

Mathnawi II, 716-718

Just love these posts on your blog whenever they appear :) This is an amazing line from Doc “Poetry is to seek beauty all invisible” and this is so very much apparent when you quote Rumi from Mathnavi…

I also loved that line from the Doc, which got me started on this pleasant topic. You, of course, are among the top few I know who are continually seeking and seeing such invisible beauty of the heart...

As you may already know, Anon aka Kathrine, I hardly ever respond or allow Anon comments because they are usually quite off the wall. Also, I am not sure what you are asking nor why you need use such an expletive? Nevertheless I would like to give you the benefit of the doubt in this one case if you would offer more info about your response/request?
