Lack of soul contributes to absence of beauty

On her site, Daphne Michaels quotes Thomas Moore about beauty from her book, Light of Our Times: Conversations with Today’s Leaders in Health and Spirituality.

Michaels asks, "In beginning to understand beauty’s role in human life, what are the obstacles? Do you think it is more expensive to create beauty?"

Moore responds, "No, not at all. It takes nothing to create beauty."

When pressed for obstacles to beauty, Moore's answer includes, "The things that we consider important and valuable come from a place other than the soul, and that is where the soul is undervalued."

Barque referenced Michaels' book in an earlier post about Moore's insights about dark nights of the soul.
