Beauty in the eye of the beholder

Isn’t beauty wonderful? Most especially your own personal view. The view from your eyes.

As it should be.

With one big exception. Sometimes when you share your view of beauty with another and they share their view with you each of you picks up on some aspect of the beauty of a thing that each of you may have missed.

Look for beauty around you today. Put no limits on it. We all need lots and lots of beauty in our lives.The beauty of a thing, a word, a thought, a deed, an action, a view – all! Everything!

Beauty is everywhere, look for it today and, of course, as you can, share the experience with others!

And remember to smile and breath in the beauty as you appreciate your ability to do so.

  2. The expression “Beauty in the eye of the beholder” to me, simply means that beauty, as a universal concept, has no intrinsic and or set meaning, definition or even value for that matter. Or if you like, it is a collectively undecidable notion, since its definition is inherently and purely observer-based. It also implies that “to each its own”. In other words, each individual may interpret the idea of beauty (of people, objects, thoughts, etc.) according to his/her own biased, genetic, emotional, cultural, social and spiritual needs, proclivity and predilection. Having said that, most people feel they “intuitively” know and “understand” what is meant by beauty in their mind’s eye. That is to say, when it comes to judging people’s physical good looks for instance, they can agree on a general consensus of what it is to be beautiful. And that’s exactly where the politically-oriented and money-driven media plays its most self-righteous card – constantly bombarding us with retouched images and brainwashing us into accepting their artificially-enhanced symmetrical lines of human design as the universally preferred ones.

    As always, a great post Penny! Great message from a most beautiful soul … πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you my dear Roxi. Exceedingly well stated. You are right on all counts. I will hope that governments (rules,laws,procedures,policies,regulations etc.) will one day (as they are composed of people also) see your concept of beauty and redefine the structure/organization of governing with a view to universality, as it relates to beauty,happiness and individual expression and self worth. Where the value of a nation is predicated not on preconceptions but on the health and well-being of each of it’s citizens, with love, Penny πŸ™‚ xx

      • I can’t tell you how glad I am that you ‘get’ me…. LOL… I tend to get quite analytical at times and just ending up seeing glazed and confused expressions on people’s faces when I speak about such complex things. LOL…. πŸ˜‰ xxxooo

  3. Lots of eye candy!
    This morning on my way to work – I noticed that it’s getting brighter & brighter each day.
    And – that made me smile πŸ™‚
    x x:) πŸ™‚ xx

Thank you for your thoughts!
