It is easier

It is easier to see beauty in the eye of the hurricane
than to see it in the eye of an insincere man.

It is easier to see beauty in the heart of a volcanic eruption
than to see it in the heart of an arrogant man.

It is easier to see beauty in the destruction of a tsunami
than to see it in the destruction of greedy man.

It is easier to feel beauty in the warmth of the scorching sun
than to feel it in the presence of an angry man.

It is easier to freeze in the beauty of a cold winter
than to freeze in the grasp of a cold hearted man.

It is easier to hear the beauty of the sound of wilderness
than to hear it from the voice of a shallow man.

It is easier to embrace the brilliance of a blazing fire
than to be in the embrace of a sexually perverse man.

It is easier to hear the beauty of a dog’s howling
than to hear it in the sermon of an ignorant man.

It is easier to feel the love of a merciless storm
than to feel it in all the competing religions created by man.

It is easier to understand why a prey needs to kill to survive
than to understand the justified killings of a man.

It is easier to open ourselves to the magnificence of the universe
than to open ourselves to someone who claims magnificence because he is man.
