Has anyone ever said, "It is important to spend less time on how we look and more time on how we see?" If not, someone should. -Anon.

On the subject of 'looks' we aim to be neat and clean, properly garbed to occasion, decent to social norms, and a few bit more add-ons...... but the rest of it should be in trying to cultivate the wisdom and art of seeing the world, life, things, people with 20/20 vision in the heart. Yeah, the heart steeped in real deep & deeper understanding knowledge compassion insight discernment perception -- is able and can better see the world in its rightful genuine perspective and valuation. Being at peace with all that lends a person a special aura and glow unmatched by even the most beautiful creature in the world!


  1. Your post reminds me of a messsage I recieved from someone, it said...
    theres a beautiful poem that Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked to share her beauty tips:
    " for attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
    For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
    For slim figure share your food with the hungry.
    For beautiful hair let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day,
    and for poise , walk with humility, if you ever need a helping hand , you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
    As you grow older , you will discover that you have 2 hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others."
    That I guess is what being beautiful is all about! :))
    Thanks for a wonderful post Ellen!

  2. Yes, that was beautiful, wasn't it? Have read it online bout two years ago. Audrey Hepburn was an elegant person. Beauty of mind and heart.

    Thanks for your lovely visit, Sana.
    Take care and God bless.

  3. Hi Elen,
    You have hit the nails on the head. I too have always believed that true beauty comes from within; it's what lies within you that's your wealth. Compassion and knowledge are true components of beauty.

  6. " is a light in the heart." --- Wonderful, so wonderful! Great to see you, May. Thanks for dropping by. God bless.

  7. It is good to look beautiful but outward beauty alone will be of lttle worth unless backed by inner beauty of head and heart. A nice message that is short and forceful

  8. Hello Ellen!

    Once again........a beautiful post. I believe that beauty has to be inner as without that the outward beauty becomes fake.....all what matters is how one feels about his/her own looks.

    Keep Smiling

    P.S: The picture in the post is too good.

  9. Hi KP,

  11. True beauty is that which comes from within. This is a wonderful post, as usual! A 20-20 vision in the heart can indeed make one see the goodness in others.
