Monday Mantra 7 – Beauty is a light in the heart

Beauty is not in the face beauty is a light in the heart Kahlil Gibran quote Monday Mantra 7 via LaWhimsy“Beauty is not in the face; Beauty is a light in the heart.” Kahlil Gibran

Let’s face it, we live in a society that focuses so much on the exterior beauty – one is constantly bombarded with the notion that they must be pretty, young, wrinkle, hair and pore-free. Have bouncy, shiny hair, no scars, marks or pimples on their perfectly toned, tanned skin. Be the “right” weight, wear the “right” clothes, etc. Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s all a big, fat farce – a lie! Beauty, true, amazing, secret-of-life beauty comes from inside. It comes from the fires of your passions as they light up your eyes. It shines through the glow your very soul gives off when it’s surrounded by and giving love. It shows in the sounds of your voice and laughter when you are thrilled and joyous. It’s in the weightless, wondrous feeling of your very essence being given the freedom to fully BE.

Jane Eyre and Rochester Illustration by abigail larsonI believe that my beloved Jane Eyre would easily agree that true and glorious beauty does not lie without, but rather from a deeper, more pure place in the heart…I mean, many said she was not a beauty and yet, Rochester could see past that plain, poor and obscure nature others would foist upon her and see the passion and beauty that she really was.

Have a wonderful and beautiful Monday and Happy Birthday Charlotte Bronte!!

Namaste ~ Ella
