Obsessing over beauty= not beautiful
Honoring its presence and creating a comfortable place for it to exist= beautiful
Everybody is into the word beauty these days it seems, but after a while conversation about it starts to feel stale.
Maybe, to me, its because the most beautiful things that I have seen have just gone about their business and remained beautiful whether we acknowledge it or not:
It’s when humans try to create beauty themselves that it runs the risk of becoming redundant.
When I was a kid I went through endless jars of paint… had the easel, a beret because of some cartoon, and all I would paint is sunsets.
Sunsets on sunsets on sunsets.
I painted so many because it just never looked the same as a real sunset.
Today, I feel that the frustration humans feel when trying to create beauty comes from the fact that we are trying to emulate things that just ARE beautiful. We are attempting to put all of this thought into things that move on instinct.
For instance, the ocean isn’t thinking about touching the shore and doing all that unknown stuff in-between.
It just does it.
So today, I feel that if we wish to achieve BEAUTY
How about we just BE and do what our instincts tell us?
I feel as if it's the only way to hit that mark.
Granted, we have to use some thought for it to translate,
but that’s the beauty of humans. We have a complex thought process that other things around us don’t
so instead of fighting it - honor it- and create some stuff that they might just call
What we as humans can do, we can draw inspiration from the OG Beauty Guys
and incorporate our complex thought process to it
and present to the universe our exhibition of Beauty.
:But you better flow like water with it:
:and you better breathe:
:and you better be as sure as the earth you stand on:
:and make sure you shine like the sun and moon
And this stands for whatever materials you use, whether it is natural or man-made
because if you don’t, I’m sure that your interpretation won’t resound at all
Your mentors are all around you:
-turning colors with the seasons
-standing tall for centuries
-creating sculptures and mazes of caves with a rhythmic carress
-somersaulting in the air
more things than I could ever name.
just showing off, showing out, and being beautiful af for all of us to learn from.
We are a part of this realm too,
So, let’s just do. <3
