A Beautiful Woman – You Tube

Our quest for beauty and perfection is born out of our fear that we are not good enough. We have forgotten the old adage that real beauty is found in the human heart. A beautiful heart is forever, physical beauty dulls in only a few short years. Even with the added advantages of creams and lotions, surgery and everything else on offer, none of these can give us real beauty, if the heart is not beautiful. Look deeply  into the face of aging people for there you will see through the lines and the wrinkles, to the soul that in age, seems to be visible on the face.  We call that character and every line tells a story. I believe that is true.

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” — John Lennon


A bit about the video The Evolution of Woman.

In the quest for beauty, over the centuries, women have mauled and manipulated just about every body part – lips, eyes, ears, waists, skulls, foreheads, stomachs, breasts and feet – that did not fit into the cookie-cutter ideal of a particular era’s ideal of beauty and perfection.What woman doesn’t want to be beautiful? Women want to please and will go to extreme measures to achieve the beauty ideal.  Women have suffered, sacrificed and punished themselves under the tyranny of beauty. I guess the old adage is as true today as it was way back then, to be beautiful is to be loved.

  1. O… forgot; I do disagree with John; fear is not real — that’s the amazing thing – we are stuck in a delusion that is based on an unreal perception of God… that He is going to bring upon us tremendous suffering. It would be funny if I were not also stuck here… its funny though – a little bit… sheesh

    1. Sorry you didn’t much like the John L. quotation. For most people fear is real. It is not real perhaps from a higher point of view, say from the view of the Spiritual Master, who has long gone past the basic human level. Nothing is real once we reach Enlightenment or have reached a state of truth or attainment. I don’t think John L. was at such a level,nor are most others. To overcome fear is something only wisdom brings to over a long journey of time. Say eons. I don’t know what sheesh means??? Namaste. 🙂

      1. I like John Lennon… he had a huge mouth that lied a lot though and he didn’t now that — seems he had a lot of (artificial) false confidence. Sheesh is an expression of disbelief – of I’m not thinking that can be true – I doubt that; etc.
        I did enjoy the post you may want to know.
        Now that I watch the beginning of the video again – maybe that isn’t a male – ? ? ?

        Namaste

        1. I agree that John L. was far from perfect.. I am not a fan. I never was. I am not a Beatle fan at all. although George was sweet. John was hugely complicated and often juvenile. A troubled man but one who had a way with words. ..btw, The lady in the beautiful woman vid. is a woman.. Her name appears on the credits.. I have been watching on t.v. how woman in South America will do anything to be beautiful.. Even to the point of not eating.. and having surgical lifts and tucks at the tender age of 20 years. I am horrified. 😦 – Off to bed. Very late here. to late to write.. thanks.

          1. My mistake then on the video – I really was thinking she was a man – oops. I’ve had a few transvestite men in classes.
            I like George best. John was weird and juvenile – but I am a fan; still.
            Good night Eve.
            Thanks for setting me straight on the video
            🙂

    1. I guess they Indians did not much care of gender at birth. they allowed a child to grow up often without a gender classification.. The Zuni tribe did not give a gender identification until a child was five or six years old. The children grew up according to their ideals. thus, gender 3rd and 4th really grew out of that. In the West, we only recognize two genders, they are strickly Male and Female, all else is considered odd or based on sexually orientation. The gender differences in Indian society were often not based on sexual orientation but on gender identification. They just had a different way of living. 3rd Gender people are often present in tribal people and very much recognized in Indian societies abroad.. (India.) best eve.
