How beauty is seen

If we could become detached from ourselves and gain the
inner freedom which the Fathers called
'apathy', that is to say the absence of passion,
we could see things more and more luminously.
We could also see the splendor of God's presence
in this dark and opaque world.
We could see grace active everywhere
and in all things.
~ Metropolitan Anthony Bloom in Courage to Pray
