Think of beauty…

“When I think of art I think of beauty. Beauty is the mystery of life. It is not in the eye it is in the mind. In our minds there is awareness of perfection.”

Agnes Martin

Our world is so preoccupied by the preconceived notions of beauty.  These notions are a business that makes lots of money.  This is great for the business owners.  They are able to push out their ideas of beauty that generates a profit to them.  I applaud them for having the endurance and vision to keep up this formula for hundreds of years but I think it is time for their idea of beauty to get a face lift.

Beauty does not fade over time.  Beauty is not the luxury of the youth.  Beauty is not painful or hard to hold.  Beauty is simply an adjective that invokes an emotional response of awe, peace, and love.  Nothing more. 

When you see something that is beautiful, it tends to put you in a relaxed state that it very comforting.  That is why most people want to look at beautiful things, hear beautiful music, think beautiful thoughts.  There are not chemical treatments or miracle serum that can imitate this.  It is a state of mind that is as unique as the individual in that mind-state. 

We have to remember that beauty is not a tangible thing.  So stop going broke and getting depressed and obsessed over the notion of beauty.  Everyone can be beautiful.  If you don’t believe me, then continue as you are and we’ll see just how beautiful you’ll feel in a few years or so.

Peace & happiness to you all.
