How to be?
Should I abandon myself to the natural entropy of the universe and let it give me shape? Should I be ugly if it makes me ugly? Should I be dirty, disorganized, cold, and reactive to whatever happens and let everything happen without my participation?
I prefer to shape myself in the direction of beauty.
Not by trying to be beautiful, but by making myself beautiful from within.
Could make up, plastic surgery, 24 Hour Fitness, Louis Vuitton or eating organic food make me beautiful?
Yes… in some ways…
But how does being beautiful make me be more authentically myself, honest from my core, and sincere from my heart?
Someone who is beautiful is courageous, direct, open and speaks his or her mind clearly - and is also physically beautiful, and lovely.
Someone who is beautiful works hard on a lovable cause.
The ego looks at itself… and worries; while beauty always comes from inside and out.
What we want is what we need, and it is also how things ought to be. This is the ideal state for us.
But this state is dynamic. It is never at rest. Entropy tears it apart. We work restless in giving life its ideal shape: the desired shape, the needed shape, the shape it must have.
Like a dancer, we must keep on dancing; improving as we dance because we need to dance to stay alive and we desire it to be beautiful.
