This relationship is perceiving; the softening of this relationship is the softening of perception. Beauty redeems perceiving. It is in this way that perceiving that heal alienation which is a misperception. And the healing of alienation will redeem the world, gradually one moment of perception at a time as well as instantly in one moment of perception.
Beauty is a path.
