The beauty of nature is easy to see, to loose yourself in the delicate magic that simply creates a flower takes no effort at all.
Yet how many of us fail to see our own intrinsic beauty?
Many view our bodies with an ever critical eye, not seeing past the flaws that appear to jump out of the mirror and drag us down into a mire of self destructive thoughts about what we see there standing in front of us.
Is what we see in the mirror a true reflection to what we really are though?
A mirror does not expose to you what lingers on the inside, nor does it highlight the colours of your aura as you stand there seeing only a limited part of your earthly body.
Beauty in the human race has been manipulated to promote a certain type of body/face.
If you don't fit in with the commercial stereotypical view of beauty that is used in consumerism then one fails to see anything positive nor pleasing about themselves.
But there is a way to see through the delusions of media hype.
And that is through the eyes of another.
People who know you for who you are, people who know that beauty is not an outward reflection of a "perfect" body, but a reflection of your inner realm and the delicate glow of light that cascades down upon you.
There is beauty in every human who graces this planet, even those struggling with a darkened path. Circumstances and the treatment of others has a lot to do with our view of body image and what sort of life we lead, those that have been abused from an early age will always struggle with the image of themselves, feeling that they are not good enough, often they hide away or seek out situations/people who will continue to enhance this unbalanced view of themselves.
It takes special people to see past the flaws we place on ourselves, and those people who can sneak in under our judgemental attitudes of low self esteem are worth more than any amount of money this world could offer.
