257: Understanding Beauty

Listen to this episode and all others below

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The very concept of beauty is as expansive as Love.  Indeed if a poet hasn't said it up to this point   ( I am sure one must have) Love is beauty.  However, somewhere along the way, through time, beauty has been shaped more and more by popular thought and not the purity of Love.

Advertising execs in the United States and I am sure other places want you to believe that they know the definition of beautiful.  They will indeed point you to their products

Yet true beauty will never yield to the confines of thought.  It is indeed an energy that can be felt with or without the senses.  It exists in each of us and the truest way to find it is simply to look for it.  Join me today as I talk about the concept of beauty.

Topics Discussed in this Episode

  • The Gender of Beauty 
  • Who Determines Beauty
  • How the Concept Has Changed throughout Time
