'“I had embraced you, long before i hugged you.” 
― Sanober Khan 

"I was dead, then alive.
Weeping, then laughing.
The power of love came into me,
and I became fierce like a lion,
then tender like the evening star." 
— Rumi

The Beast represents the dark animal nature connected to our survival instincts and fears. Because it is so big and powerful we tend to keep this part of ourselves in the shadows. We refuse to look at it or show it outwardly to the world. Only when we confront our beast will we understand the strength and treasure held within it.
Beauty demonstrates to us that looks can be deceiving. In the story, her sisters are described as the most beautiful creatures physically, yet their beauty is a mere mask covering the ugly intentions that they hide from the world. She discovers that the Beast, fearful though he looks, possesses true inner beauty.

The Rose represents transformation. Beauty asked for the Rose out of love. The Beast had to transform himself through love. The fairytale tells us that when you ask for something truly from the heart, you will receive the wisdom that you need; although you may not be aware of the price that must be paid for it until later.
