Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
In our busy, goal-oriented society we often think of beauty as a luxury. Like so many things that bring us joy - imagination, intimate conversation, moments of silence - we treasure it when it appears, then hurry on to more important tasks. But the late poet and scholar, John O’Donohue, believed that all of these things are not luxuries, but necessities. He explains why beauty is a threshold to understanding, intimacy, and even the Divine. He points to its value in difficult times, and says, “some little icon of beauty, in the midst of desolation, enables us to endure and hold out for warmth and love and kindness.” In the lyrical language of the poet that he was, O’Donohue speaks to the connection between imagination and spirituality, and explains why falling in love can lead us to a sanctuary that lies within each of us. In this inspiring, alive, and joyful conversation, he gives us license to indulge ourselves in those “luxuries” at every opportunity. (hosted by Michael Toms)
