He was walking along the beach with morning mist rising through fiery red and yellow sky..
Deep in though as he looked out over the sea, each step taking him deeper into himself..
Then she appeared, seemingly out of nowhere, walking toward him with shrouded face and long flowing gown..
She said no words but pointed toward a hill off the beach and suddenly he noticed something he hadn’t before..
A temple on a hill looking out over the sea, he hastened toward it with an enthusiastic step in his walk..
The closer he got the more he anticipated, he had come to the sea this morning with a sense of longing and expectation..
As he climbed the hill he stopped to turn and look back at the sea, he saw the mysterious visitor still watching him..
He felt safe and sure that she was sent from the mysterious sea to lead him to his purpose..
As he approached the temple, with the roar of the sea in the distance and the misty haze over the water now below him..
He felt a comfort and joy that he had never known before, a deep sense of peace came over him..
Why had this messenger lead him to find this place, he wondered as he began to approach the open temple..
He walked into the tabernacle, open on all sides with a view of the sea below..
He stood in the center and noticed a statue on a small table, he approached it and saw that is was a likeness of the women..
He saw an inscription that said, ” all who have eyes to see, will see..”
He suddenly realized that he had seen this mysterious figure and he felt fear and awe at the same time..
At this moment the women approached, she looked at him and her eyes were fire..
She spoke to him these words ” you see me because you came here today looking for the beauty behind the beauty..”
She placed her hand upon his shoulder and he felt the fire come into his own eyes..
Suddenly, she was gone, and he knelt there hearing only his breath and the breaking waves below..
He walked over to the edge of the cliff outside of the temple, he could see the beach below and the sea as far as the horizon..
He knew nothing would ever look the same again, his eyes had been opened and he could now see for the first time..
