In the presence of anything beautiful — a beautiful woman, for example — you should think of the infinite beauty of your Beloved, the Creator of all beauty on earth, and you should delight in the fact that this beauty glorifies your God. You should not want to possess this beauty or take it away from your Beloved, since he exists for you and you exist for him. Be glad at all this beauty because it is a hymn of praise to your Beloved, and therefore a hymn of praise to you. For you are your Beloved's and he is yours.

Ernesto Cardenal, Abide in Love
