On Being: Beauty

1. Beauty is the radiance of being.
2. The experience of beauty binds us more fiercely to life, thus enhancing our chances of survival.

3. Every moment of being is a moment of indescribable grace.

4. We perceive this grace, however, to a greater or lesser degree, depending on how much attention we pay to it.

5. Thus when we are anxious or preoccupied or grieving or in pain we see very little beauty in being. But when we turn our gaze, we are consumed by its glory.

6. The function of art is to turn our gaze towards beauty.

7. Dissonance and ugliness, tragedy and sorrow, bring us to the edge of paradise, where we may yearn even more for what is not there.

8. Being is uniformly radiant. Nothing is more or less beautiful except in our perception.

9. Should we shift our perception, then, we would see equal radiance in all things.

10. What is your perception of beauty????

Dear "4biddenlove4us".

smile ... at least the way your heart beats ... including all the different facets of your soul & the complexity of your spirit ... which at the end is very simple ... it´s about being accepted & loved ...

Our conversation last night was quite beautiful. So I guess openness and sharing is my perception of beauty right now. I know so much more about you now and find you even more irresistible than before. I believe in you.

By the way, I think I did alright on my test today. I remembered what you said...it worked out just fine.

1. Beauty is the radiance of being. An all-inclusive description. To discover the radiance is something that takes time and has little to do with the package but with the soul and spirit of the person. To some degree it is also a reflection of how the individual feels about self. For me it is also about the eyes.

Is that why I see myself as UGLY as MUCK????? Should have told me sooner, maybe another reason I don't bother to look in the mirror when my daughter says to me, " mummy, where you going? " even when I'm just staying home and I say " why do you ask? " She says " you look so beautiful " I believe tho that beauty is in the eye of the beholder at the same time, if you have a good heart and you show the goodness, it can bring joy and happiness making the ugliest look more beautiful than what the outside appears. Thats why I rather love a man for his character rather what he looks like but saying that, if he is handsome, then its a bonus!!

I strongly believe that we are all perfect, I believe that our individual beauty lies within our imperfections. A woman with a melancholy smile is beauty. A man who cries for his loss is beauty. A child who has cried himself to sleep is beauty. We must take time and see the beauty within.

I couldn't agree more with you!! Inner Beauty is more beautiful than the outside appearance if the person you interact with can communicate with has feelings of emotions that touch the soul!
Thanks for stopping by {=}
