To Be Beautiful

To Be Beautiful
(July 26, 2010)

If you want to glow with beauty; make sure that everything you do is done from the heart. If you want to have gorgeous eyes; when you look at others look into their souls, past everything else and look straight into their souls. If you want to be unforgettable; always remember others. Remember others for who they are and never forget their importance, even down to the smallest importance.

If you want grace and class; be sure to always own the inner desire to touch people in such a way that they may meet the angels and Heaven in your embrace.

If you want to be famous; always walk with the knowledge that people may very well be far more wonderful than you think they are.

Forget about being a sudden spark and a floating, flickering flame that is easily blown away. Instead, desire to be imprinted upon every soul that you meet, and to leave your imprints upon every beautiful patch of air that you breathe.

If you want to be loved and cherished, desire to love and desire to cherish and desire these with a burning passion.

This is how to be beautiful.

  1. Good advice and, sometimes, it requires a great deal of effort!

  2. Oh but this is something we cannot strive for or "try" to do, it must only be genuine, an occurrence from the cultivation and growth of our souls. It must simply be who we are.

  3. For me this has always been reflected in the acronym JOY. It stands for Jesus - Others - You! If Jesus is first in our lives, there will be such an outflow of love for others - because our own needs have been met first by placing Him at the center of our lives. He is all I need and He is enough! For some it is hard to wrap one's head around that.

  6. I hope to remember this always, especially -
    "Forget about being a sudden spark and a floating, flickering flame that is easily blown away. Instead, desire to be imprinted upon every soul that you meet, and to leave your imprints upon every beautiful patch of air that you breathe."

    So beautiful - so like you.

  7. Agree. I'm no expert but it I agree that it comes down to the heart, what you can imagine for your creativity that energises it and makes it that. I think creativity comes down to an expression of virtue.

  12. Yes Mame, this is true. For our own sake it is much wiser to treat others as we would like to be treated. Most of the time and for most people this goes over well, but there are always the exceptions aren't there? As you might already have known some folks just don't possess any common sense nor sensitivity. Have a great weekend.
