Beauty as a guiding force for freedom and transcendence in midlife….

I’ve just completed our next book, Letters from the Land of Midlife Dating. It forced me to answer the questions torn from years of ‘coupledom’ how do we find our way to wholeness? It’s an insightful peak into the world of midlife dating often laced with humor.

In part the answer to our search for wholeness lies in the radical transformation within the primordial rigors underlying beauty.

Creating beauty has been the guiding force of my life in middle age. Beauty reflected in the whispered prayer of yoga barely discernable through the movement but deeply felt. Beauty reflected in the understanding underlying a conversation, a kindness freely given, cleaning up the house with intention and care; beauty as the motivating force in life has infinite expressions. Life is transformed from the ordinary to the sublime within the vehicle of creativity.

Let me clarify. I’m not talking about fairytale beauty, although fairytales and their beauty are close to my heart. I’m talking about authentic beauty grounded in the tasks of daily life. I’m talking about beauty filled with the raw and mystical, the kind of beauty that could uplift or crush us. It could be bold or infinitesimal. I’m talking about the crucible of creativity. Does beauty live in creativity or does creativity live in beauty?

In midlife we shoulder the awareness of creating tangible beauty and carry it forward with intentionality or we fall more deeply into the slumber of the material world disconnected from the beauty and creativity that brings meaning and wonder to our efforts.

Did you catch that? Intentional beauty born of the crucible of creativity will transform our lives bringing meaning and wonder to our efforts. Let the younger generation seek superficial beauty. As mid-lifers we take up our responsibilities to carry the deep and mysterious beauties, in conjunction with superficial beauty, forward discovering our alchemical nature in the process. Yes this shouldering of deep beauty ushers us into the unknown, the Great Mystery, the origin of alchemy, returning us to wholeness.
