Question: Do our faces become uglier when we leave the soul's world and enter into physical bodies?Sri Chinmoy: In the soul's world, our faces are very beautiful. But when we enter into the earth-consciousness, we lose much of that beauty. When we are in the soul's world, or when the soul's consciousness permeates our entire body, we become so beautiful, so ethereal — with absolutely unimaginable beauty. But when we are in the vital consciousness or physical consciousness, there is such a difference!
