Beautiful Words

“The sea brings comfort, and the waves they talk. The sun shines on the water as it gently rises. You can see the face of God when you look at the sun. Your soul forgets everything as you wake from the dreams of life's worries. For the joy lifts your heart, and your soul sees the wisdom of life, and beauty. Indescribable beauty. Is the pain gone?” Does this come from the pages of a Taoist book or the tongue of a master? They are the words of Rasputin, the famous Russian holy man and consultant to the Tsar and Tsarina. His words are beautiful but his actions were not. Lao-Tzu tells us to be wary of beautiful words for they may be used to mislead or betray.
