Journey of Beauty–Day 14

Questions

How does Beauty feel? What is the energy or vibration of Beauty? How do I bring Beauty to all my movements? How do I breathe in Beauty? What is the mental attitude of doing with Beauty? How to exist as Beauty–how to be Beauty?

Reflection

I feel very inept about beauty. Still. Day 14, and I still feel like I have no clue.

The “feel” of beauty is more than looking at something or someone beautiful and describing what you see, or how that person/thing acts or behaves. People/things can have a physical appearance of beauty, but not have that energy or vibration of beauty. (Having just watched the final episode of Feud, Joan Crawford comes to mind).

It’s doubly difficult since we use the term beauty to describe both inner and outer qualities. Outer qualities can (sometimes) be objectively defined: balance, symmetry, etc.

The inner qualities are not really consistent though, because even inner beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But there must be some qualities I can look to and say, “that, that’s beautiful, or at least a part of what makes up the inner beauty”.

But I don’t even think that would do it. Here’s a list of inner qualities that I think can be part of “being beautiful”:

  • Grace
  • Kindness
  • Generosity
  • Humor
  • Helpfulness

But someone can be graceful and not be beautiful. Someone can be kind and not be beautiful. Someone can be generous, humorous, or helpful, and not be beautiful. So, while those qualities are perhaps within beautiful people, they are not the essence of beauty.

Yes, the essence of beauty. What is that?

25 days left. Let’s see if we can discover it, shall we?
