Hey beautiful soul. 🙂
I had no plan on writing this post but I always think about this ‘Idea’ of beauty that we humans have. I mean, it is the most complicated things, well not only this but every concept that is associated to humans is complicated, I believe. The definition of beauty is quite vague if we think about it. There’s not definite meaning of what really beauty is. Is it abstract? or is it physical? Does it really exist? or is there no existence of it whatsoever..?
We all hold some kind of definition regarding this term – beauty. For some it could be fair skin, almond eyes, long blonde hair, fuller lips and for some it could be light toned skin, big eyes, small lips, pixie haircut and for some it could be brilliant mind, a sense of humour, loyalty etcetera. The point is, every person in this world has their own concept, imagination, visual of what beauty is and in what beauty lies.
I’m going to be honest, before writing this blog I actually went on Google and searched for the definition of beauty. According to Merriam Webster the definition of beauty is “the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit”
Basically it is something that is aesthetic to human mind so when we think about it, beauty doesn’t really have shapes or forms, it doesn’t lie in a person or thing, it doesn’t show a quality or physical trait. All it says is beauty is pleasing to human’s mind or soul. So then why is it that we look for beauty in person’s physical state and try to measure it on some scale provided by media or given by society. When beauty really has different definitions or more specifically no certain definition then on what basis we claim that we don’t find that person beautiful?
My point is, beauty is something that relates to aesthetic and any thing can be pleasurable and happiness to human’s mind. It is not limited to gender, age, race or any physical state. So, we should rather find pleasure in souls rather in shapes.
Hope I didn’t offend anyone. Please share your views, what do you think beauty is?
One of the Blessed Ones. ❤
