Though God alone is ultimately beautiful, that in which God is reflected also looks beautiful. A child is beautiful, and a saint is beautiful, because both child and saint have no ego. Wherever there is no ego, that state looks beautiful. Wherever there is ego, it looks ugly. Egolessness is the nature of God. God gets reflected in a child and also in a saint, so both look beautiful; but the middle people are not beautiful because they are neither saints nor children. Do you understand? If you are a child, then you are beautiful, because in a child there is innocence, absence of egoism and self-affirmation, so God reflects Himself in that condition. God can be reflected in the things of the world also, provided these things are ‘minus ego’, and are innocent.
