There’s no one else to blame.
Beauty is not hidden, it surrounds us at all times in all forms. The Illuminati is not secretly designing hatefulness behind the scenes for profit and fun. No one forces us to knowingly eat poisonous foods, support fear based news, watch reality television that is used to ridicule and demean, visit gossip sites, or entertain pornography. The ways in which we decide to feed our body, spirit, and mind are quickly revealed by our disposition.
It is not a secret that nutrition is the #1 prevention and cure for illness. Just as your body breaks down from inflammation, cancer, and diabetes, caused by a diet high in processed, sugar-laden, non-foods; so does the mind deteriorate from a diet of low-brow entertainment, accepting uninformed opinions, and laziness. And what is it we feed our Spirit these days but dualistic and conformist propaganda?
If we are not witnessing beauty in whatever moment of the day we find ourselves in, it is directly related to things we feed ourselves. We know better. The blissfulness of Ignorance can be debated until the end of time; however we do not live ignorantly. What do you want from life? Think about it, hold it in your mind, and imagine yourself dancing with it under the moonlight. Now ask yourself, am I eating the things necessary to make this imagined state of harmony a reality?
To become something beautiful we must eat beautiful things. We must overwhelm the senses with an offering of our highest efforts. We’ve been choosing destructive food stuffs, choosing to watch Youtube videos of gang violence, choosing to entertain the lowest parts of human nature. So there is no surprise that we’re unable to create lasting, unapologetic, relentless beauty within ourselves and the world around us.
I would encourage you, at all times, in every circumstance to Be Beautiful (and Dance) but as usual it’s already been said by someone else in a way I could never recreate:
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” …and eat right.
You are what you eat…choose wisely.
