planting a flower

I find it amazing how we all see beauty in different ways. One may think roses are the most beautiful while another would say an orchid. The same goes for beauty and people. Some will be over the moon about one person while someone else will think that another is the most beautiful.  Truly beauty is in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it?

When it comes to the everyday world and the media we have to remember that what is beauty to one doesn’t mean it is beauty to another. And then sometimes the beauty isn’t even real (like in magazines that have been retouched).

Why is it that we feel the need to point out what we think is beautiful when it comes to the physical with others?  And is it really necessary to compare what is beautiful and what isn’t beautiful and create an audience for or against one person based on what they think is beautiful? It is just their opinion and then others jump on board and then another and then another and that is when a consensus is made saying, ‘THIS is what beauty is.’  It is just a bunch of people declaring what they think about beauty but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is true.

So the next time you look at beauty truly look from the eyes within that create a perception from the heart and the inner self. The physical body is a magnificent tool for us to experience this world through and each is just as beautiful as the next because of all that it can do for us. Remember that true beauty comes from within. How you act, speak, and interact with others. Kindness, compassion, and love are the true beauties in this world, don’t you think?
