Real Beauty Is Un-Self-Conscious

In our media sodden culture, we are assaulted with other people’s perverted versions of beauty, be they supermodels, houses, cars, phones or whatever. Very attractive and false they are too. I spend an inordinate amount of consciousness seeing through the illusion

When one has the eyes to see, a lily of the field or even a dung beetle is more worthy than the most highly fashioned celebrated beauty,  jewellery, Ferrari or the finery of Kings and Queens.

As regards one’s own beauty, then one must follow the rule of un-self-consciousness. Leave your beauty to God, its author, and don’t for any reason thwart it!

There is as much beauty in youthful vigour as there is in elder’s grey hairs.

About Brother Burrito

A sinner who hopes in God's Mercy, and who cannot stop smiling since realizing that Christ IS the Way , the Truth and the Life. Alleluia!

    What a pity and an irony it is, that all too often, those who have the humility to be forces for goodness and righteousness in the world, are also often inhibited by self-consciousness; Not the self-consciousness of arrogant worldliness, but the self-consciousness of unworthiness.
    Sadly, by its nature, arrogance has a loud voice that, if not kept in check, likes to hear its own sound for the sake of it, whereas humility by its nature is calm, unassuming and quiet.
    It is a very clever man, who in quiet humility can harness that which is not by its nature comfortable in his breast and use it for good. A true mark of saintliness I think

    Easy for Burronissimo to say.

    Toad, as my granny said upon receiving a congratulatory 100th birthday letter from HM ERII, one thing nice about outliving your contemporaries is that you get to have the last word.
