Inner reflection, Feelings in words-Inner self and physical self
One of my favourite books wrote”you can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely”.
Makes me wonder what it would be like if the way you lived reflected your looks. perhaps we would all try harder to be better people. what if one day, your inner self and physical self were turned inside out, how confident would you be of yourself? would you be pleased with what you saw?
If for every time you lied to a loved one, it left a scar on your skin, would you still do it? if for every time you ignored your mother calls, it added a new stretch mark to your body. would you still do it as easily? what if for every time you taught a child a new game, or fed a stray, we would loose a pound on our waists maybe we would be more giving? if taking time to answer our grandfathers questions could reduce ageing signs, maybe we would be more patient? if the perfect tan came, not from the heat of the sun, but from the warmth of a hug maybe we would be more loving?
I realize that looking good has become so important to us, it would drive us to do things we would otherwise never have the inspiration for. maybe if we lived our life the way we wanted us to we would be really different people. I wonder how radically different our priorities, decisions and personalities would be in a world where doing good was so superficially. yet so tangibly rewarded.
imagine living in a world where everyone was competing to make it a better place.
