My post “Why do we long for beauty” was commented by “C”, a sweet young girl looking for support in her beauty pursuit. I promised to write a post on that topic and here I am – writing for Shaktipower after such a long time!..
“Beauty is the essence of love. And love is the essence of beauty.” – I don’t know if anybody has said that already, but these words just came from the bottom of my heart. Sometimes I think I am somehow obsessed with the idea of beauty, of looking for beauty everywhere, finding it everywhere, especially in people and just loving it… How can I describe it?
When I see true beauty, I get thoughtless (aware). When I get thoughtless, my hearts opens, filled with love – for when there are no thoughts we can only love, we can not think of anything else. In that way love becomes the essence of beauty.
And otherwiese: people only look truly beautiful when they love. Thus beauty is the essence of love.
