Why does a certain piece of Music, a certain object of beauty strike some chord within our hearts, affords us a glimpse of the feeling that could best be described as ‘Divine’?
Perhaps finding such a Muse, is a rare blessing indeed. And I feel lucky about having the opportunity of seeing such a “Divine” face everyday.
He is just a common person like you and me. I have known him for more than 5 years. He is the owner of the Cyber Cafe I visit almost daily. Initially I thought this is just another same-sex attraction. But later I found there was more to it.
He was not just a beautiful face, but a noble-heart that reflected in the contours of his face and grace. And for over 5 years I have drunk from his cup of beauty daily.
And the enchantment, ‘the fever of the soul that takes over my body’ at the mere remembrance of his lovely smile and the innocence in his eyes, is incomparable to any other joy.
And when I was asked to make a list of all my favorite things, I mentioned about his face just after the Sun, moon, stars, daylight, darkness, trees..
How can a man live without seeing beauty? And how could I have survived if God had not made that beautiful face?
And I ask myself, what more do you need to cheer you up, what else do you need to live for, when you have tasted the glimpse of the Divine…
“I read the sacred prayer of your faith, the Namaz, everyday in the contours of your face. You are my link with the Divine.”
