Many of us do not take the time to notice and acknowledge how beautiful we are as humans.
Many of us do not take the time to notice and acknowledge how beautiful we are as humans. We may be great lovers of beauty, seeing it in the people, places, and things around us, while completely missing it in ourselves. Some of us feel that it is vain to consider our appearance too much, or we may find that when we look at ourselves, all we see are imperfections. Often we come to the mirror with expectations and preconceived notions about beauty that blind us from seeing ourselves clearly. As a result, we miss the beauty that is closest to us, the beauty we are. Sometimes we see our beauty in a shallow way, noticing how well we are conforming to social norms, but failing to see the deeper beauty that shines out from within and that will continue to shine regardless of how we measure up to society’s ideal.
If we can cut through all these obstacles and simply appreciate how beautiful we are, we free up so much energy. We also become less dependent upon the opinions and feedback of others since we become our own greatest admirers. Many of us know that after a great yoga practice or a long, deep meditation, we are more able to see how beautiful we are. This is because we have released some of our baggage, thus unburdening ourselves and summoning forth the spirit that dwells within us. It is the heady combination of the divine spirit and the human body that conveys beauty more accurately than anything else.
To keep ourselves in touch with our own beauty, we can surround ourselves with images that reflect our beauty back to us — photos of a relative or child who has our eyes, images of teachers who embody spirit, or self-portraits that capture our essence in a way that allows us to see ourselves anew. The best way to keep ourselves in touch with our own beauty is to keep looking deeply into our own souls and opening our eyes to the human being we see in the mirror every day.

It is unfortunate that our Culture, which was so excellent in honoring Beauty via Show, Hollywood, etc. has been taken over by Cuture Destroyers now depicting End of World, The Latest Gov Coupe, Tech-Bio-Alien Invasion Scares. It’s a total infiltration. I know in my gut it is not a Human representation of Beauty of which Art is. Film is Art. It is a story. I do not tune in to cuddle up with Fear.
I AM barely viewing TV programing any longer- I can’t stand it! It has become a total PsyOpp to the Human mind. You might as well call mainstream TV “Debbie Downer TV”. It reaks of UGLY in every second!
It’s your brain. You choose what you let in. It has become time to get off of the Couch. Take your thoughts back. Take your beauty back.
A beautiful society has room to go within and BE SO. This has become a lost Art. To know our own Beauty.
Why wait. Find your beauty. You are beautiful. It’s there, find it. It always was there.
Know thy Beauty and Thyself.
See Beauty in All.
