Beauty. The very essence of physical attraction. Physical beauty holds a certain power in this world of ours. We use beautiful people for motivation everyday. There is beauty all around us. Beautiful people have been known to get away with a lot more than ordinary or plain lookers. It is ingrained in each of us since the beginning of time. Beautiful women drive even the most powerful men to their knees and sometimes even to their demise, physically or morally. It is a powerful venom that could end up in the hands of an evil heart and send destruction in anything that crosses their path.
Ahhh, yes. Beauty. There is, however, an end to the enamoring physical beauty as it may last for sometime but there is another kind that lasts a lifetime and that is inner beauty. The thing is, when physical beauty is at its peak and inner beauty is not being cultivated at the same time, by the time the outer beauty fades, it is difficult to achieve inner beauty.
You see, we are all beautiful in our own way. I have met a number of not so beautiful people and by the time I got to know them, I find that the beauty of their hearts emanate and shine through. Not only was I inspired by their atonement with their inner attractiveness, I aspired to be like them. Somehow, someway, the outer shell no longer mattered as there was a beautiful aura that envelopes them.
But how wonderful would it be if a person who was not only beautiful outwardly, but inwardly at the same time? I bet they could influence anyone they wanted to influence with little or no effort. Imagine the alternative. A not so attractive person with an even less attractive heart. So you see for me, it is better to have a beautiful heart that shines inside out rather than have a superficial shine on top of an ugly heart. The latter having to take way too much effort to achieve.
Till my next rant.... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
