They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But it is also said that beauty comes from within. If these statements are true then it all comes down to our perception and what we, individually, consider beautiful.

In order to call something beautiful we often use judgment to discern why one person or thing is beautiful while another is not. Why do we not see everything as beautiful? We are all divine creatures of God and in so being this makes us all beautiful. Because beauty comes from within, and what we feel and believe is what we see in the world, when we feel the beauty within ourselves we, as the beholder, will see the beauty in everything around us.

If we are perceiving everything in the world as anything less than beautiful then it is a good indication that we need to question how we see ourselves.

When you find yourself judging someone else or being critical of someone or something, look inside at how you are feeling about yourself. Be honest because you are only fooling yourself if you deny what you are really feeling. Look in the mirror and see your own beauty, feel the beauty and the love that comes from within and see how it changes the way you see the world.
