Temperance – The Essence of Beauty

Temperance is a means for health & well-being
A base for the other virtues to take root & grow
By providence her goal is to achieve purification
To relinquish the superficial by simply letting it go

    “Temperance is one of the most beautiful attributes for It (she) moderates the extremes”….

    I completely agree with that statement. You made me think of Aristotle´s theory of the Golden Mean… according to which Virtues are defined as the midpoints between two extremes (defect and excess)… Also, I thought of the Temperance Tarot card in Major Arcana! 😉 Totally aimed towards trascendence and purification.
    I can totally see Temperance personified as a dancing goddess, who lives in the Garden of Olive Trees. How great your poem is, dear Jason 🙂 Thanks for sharing. Love & best wishes, always 😘

    • Thank you kindly!

      Remove from your soul, therefore, all that is superfluous, straighten out all that is crooked, purify and illuminate what is obscure, and do not cease perfecting your statue until the divine resplendence of virtue shines forth upon your sight, until you see temperance in its holy purity seated in your breast. Ennead I.6.9
