What is Beauty?

    Beauty...

    What You find beautiful, Beautifies your existence all the more simply by projecting that which you absorb from the world around you will manifest your outward image to REFLECT that which you desire. You are as beautiful as what you find beautiful.

    If it is a beautiful sunset, then you are as Beautiful as a sunset. You are both radiant and Explosive with intricate details which make up your chemical properties. Its seemingly difficult to come to the conclusion of what really is Beauty.

    hence:
    BEAUTY;
    the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).
    2. a beautiful person, esp. a woman.
    3. a beautiful thing, as a work of art or a building.
    4. Often, beauties. something that is beautiful in nature or in some natural or artificial environment.

    whats being said here is allow others to be expressive beyond our WANTED and expected physical representatives. If you represent your self in this world and you have no alias such as a mask or "AVATAR". consider yourself no different than the masked warrior or Mardi gras mask enabling confidence to exude behind the eyes of the mask wearer.

    If Hidden behind a Tree in the Forest from fear of the creatures around searching you out as prey then "THE TREE" is your representative of security.

    If you find it that you are not the PREY but the Predator then it is difficult to comprehend with great clarity why one would wear the sheep's CLOTHING isn't it WOLF?

    Why would even the Wolf wear sheep's clothing. To exploit the already fear stricken mind that is eagerly seeking safe shelter and a domain which is not saturated with Pain and the inevitability of having found ones self felt inferior to the Hierarchy set by the ones which Appear to have nothing to hide outwardly or do not seek shelter.
    Ultimately PERCEPTION of beauty has been overturned.
    What makes the MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON is that which is BALANCED. purity and excellence. If we believe that we are that which is said above then you are not even close to it.
    As It is known only that which we constantly strive to attain we will receive. The reason we retain it, is because we never realized we had it. As a lucid dream, Once you realize you are in it, ITS GONE.
    Beauty Captivates us all in this brief course we "labeled" LIFE. when all that occurs in it is the death of one thing to inspire the growth of another.
    So, If I can bring death to this one misconception; Beauty.
    and Bring life to another: We all are, even if a TREE, a MASK or AVATAR, symbol of a character, or symbol of any kind represents you, RELISH IT, YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT ALL DAY LONG. keep others in limbo and toying with the idea of what you "LOOK" like. and the FACT IS: I LOOK LIKE YOU THINK.
    and I LOOK HOW I THINK.

    so, if you don't like the way I LOOK. CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK.

    Once again,

    This is just my opinion, I COULD BE WRONG...

    JB

    which raises my next question::::

    WHAT IS BEAUTY???

    1. the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).
    2. a beautiful person, esp. a woman.
    3. a beautiful thing, as a work of art or a building.
    4. Often, beauties. something that is beautiful in nature or in some natural or artificial environment.

      "Beauty in things exists merely in the mind which contemplates them."
      (David Hume's Essays, Moral and Political, 1742)

      ''Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye.''
      (William Shakespeare, Love's Labours Lost, 1588)

      "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
      (This saying first appeared in the 3rd century BC in Greek. Margaret Wolfe Hungerford, often under the pseudonym of 'The Duchess,'  is widely credited with coining the saying in its current form.

      I read your forum question "What is Beauty?"

      From a pure appearance perspective, it depends on two things that should be in equilibrium.

      The person himself, and others who has to look upon this person from day to day.  For example, if a person takes black cosmetics and smears his face with it, and feels it is beautiful, it is not, if the community at large thinks it is hideous, and painful to look at.  Our own perception of beauty therefore, has to be weighed in relation to the sensibilities of others.

      Cosmetics and skin care should therefore be used not only to add to the positive virtues of ourselves, but for the community at large.

    beauty is as defined as in physical beauty like long legs etc as in Ms Universe, there is a specific height etc,

    are you talking about subjective beauty, beauty as the way you look at it individually,

    but for the thread,
    Beauty lies in many forms...

    The purple haze at dawns break, the mist and dew on the leaves as night rolls away the threat of overrun,, the spiders moveing in their webs, and the single drop of night dew on the barrel of your weapon, all is beauty as you feel alive and growing as the grass and in front of your foxhole...
    No enemy did show last night and beauty in the dawn and life...

    beauty is knowing what it is, in all forms, something that stays in your mind and inspires you towards something new.  Beauty is not just in the eye of the beholder but determined in all areas of that beholder.  Beauty is not made but created naturally

    Beauty is what lies within us, not the outward appearance.  It is the reflection of our souls.

    What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.

    Beauty is adoption as described in the several stories posed in the thread ADOPTION A FAMILY ENLARGED.  Beauty is tolerance and understanding when it comes to exchanging religious views on forums and in person instead of being condescending and tearing another down.  Beauty is a group of people praying and wishing for the best when we had a disturbing forum thread posed a couple days ago about an overdose whether it was real or not.  Beauty is a child born into this world.  Beauty is cupping a child's cheek and seeing eternity in their eyes.  Beauty is someone overcoming an addiction.  Beauty is a parent and a child or a sibling to a sibling working out their differences.  Beauty is people engaged in humanitarian efforts in feeding the hungry and clothing the naked and also sheltering the homeless.  Beauty is a young person honoring their virtue and looking forward to life with hope and progress.

    Beauty is when my husband touches me as he walks by. Even when I smell like garden compost and sweat!

    Beauty is when my three year son pats my back and goes "ahhh I love you mamma".

    Beauty is God, faith and humility.
