We see them every day: Beautiful Faces – especially living here in Canggu AK Hipsters Town where the average Age is between 16 – 25. In those media focused days, we are spoiled with outer Beauty!
But how many beautiful minds do we actually meet?!
In my former life as a model and actress I have met a lot of those: Beautiful Faces! And don’t get me wrong, I love Beauty and Aesthetics.
But when I look back into my model and acting times I felt mostley lonely amongst those VIP partys I rareley had a deep, meaningful or inspiring conversation with one of those beauties. It was a lot about the external and little about the content of our minds & heart.
The deep need for depth and the meaningful questions: Who am I? What is the meaning of life? What happens when we die? Brought me to my full commitment to the yogic path.
Many of us, me included, struggle with the acceptance of our body looks, how many of us hold criticism and judgement about our outer appearance?! In times of botox, beauty surgery and photoshop we all are used to a picture – perfect which we likely, subconsciously, compare ourselves too.The reality is, we all age, we all die, and if we don’t do botox or beauty surgery, we can do very little about our anatomy, the shape of our butt, our height, the color of our eyes, or our hair thickness.
This body, our outer appearance is something we come onto this world. with. Its our gift, this vessel is the suite our soul travels in, in this very life time, its our temple we’ve given. And we should treat it well, with love, care and respect, yes.Eat healthy food, get enough sleep and rest, exercise yoga, surfing, running ect.
This is all true and at the same time, this body, this hair, these eyes, its not YOU! The human body is amazing, the complex functions are just mind-blowing, but its important to remember: Its not who you are! You are not your body, you are not your look!
‘ I AM NOT MY HAIR, I AM NOT THIS SKIN I AM A SOUL THAT LIVES WITHIN ‘ – As India Arie one of my favorite artist sings
For me BEAUTY IS A STATE OF MIND and the great message is: WE CAN CREATE A BEAUTIFUL MIND!
Cause its not so much about how we actually look like, but through which lense do we look onto ourselves and others?! A warm, loving sense? A generous sense?!
Yoga offers us many tools to refine the content of our minds. The first step is to become AWARE, aware that we are not our thoughts, our believes and that we have a choice though which sense we want to look into this world.
