Physical Appearance

We spend a lot of time and money augmenting our physical appearance. While there is nothing inherently wrong with taking care of our bodies and projecting an image that is pleasing to us, we must also invest in developing our inner beauty. Internal beauty treatments such as love, gratitude, patience, and respect don’t have a monetary value but radiate far beyond physical appearance alone.

We are quick to emulate those possessing physical beauty, wealth, and strength, but what a person possesses internally will eventually be revealed externally. A physically attractive person on the outside can be decaying on the inside. A rich person without morals can be spiritually poor, and a strong man without faith can be mentally weak.

Consider the life of the visually impaired. Outside of external input, they are often attracted to others by their voice or personality. They don’t have the luxury of assessing someone’s physical appearance as a first criterion. Remember, physical characteristics change over time regardless of the cosmetic enhancements you make.
