Beauty is just not a superficial aspect; it is more about an individual’s inner self than the conventional standards defined by this materialistic world!
It is your inner self which makes you, defines and differentiates you from the rest. More than the external or the outwardly appearances; your internal features, your inner soul defines you and your personality. The surface is temporary but what lies at the core is forever.
Your external looks might give you a lead at the first place but it’s your intellectual, spiritual and emotional traits which help you in the long run.
All of an individual’s actions and reactions are drawn from his inner beauty and thus it is of utmost importance to pay attention and take care of your inner beauty; acknowledge as well as improve your inner beauty and nourish your soul to lead a prosperous and a happy life successfully.
Priscilla Presley has stated that “Inner beauty should be the most important part of improving one’s self.” These mere words hold such inspiration for us all, and also signify the importance of our inner beauty, henceforth focusing on strengthening and developing our inner beauty.
The inner beauty has such direct impact on our lives as well as the society. Whatever we have inherited from our parents and ancestors is just a fabrication we have got to ourselves. One should not feel discouraged or proud of it. It merely contributes to anyone or anything but what significantly contributes is what we all have worth offering to others.
Hence, it is more important to feel good than look good and it will thus help you extend your compassion, kindness, empathy as well as gracefulness and also, it will radiate your inner spiritual beauty.
Running towards meeting up with the so called “beauty standards”, we only meet with discontent, displeasure and disappointment which further leads to negativity and a big hurdle towards the path of success. Also, believing in such a notion of beauty, we are just projecting the fact that we hate our bodies and we are leading a dissatisfying life.
One should work on revamping the inner self which is the real beauty; the beauty of the heart which thus reflects on our face and it radiates out from within us. It provides us with utmost satisfaction and pleasure.
Here are some ways to radiate your inner spiritual beauty and thus nourish your soul:
