There will always be the desire and pursuit of beauty as seeking some ideal or perfection; based on what constitutes for someone, what is beautiful. In this episode of Life Coaching WISDOM, be inspired by the idea of what 'true beauty' actually is; from where it 'originates', and how we "are beautiful" whenever we are kind in action, loving and generous in spirit, willing to offer service without conditions, and compassionate in nature. Appreciate that your true beauty - lies within. Namaste Dorothy

Felt tight-chested, strained, and sad. Now I feel an openness, a spaciousness in my chest and abdomen. I feel calm and at ease.

Good reminder
We all know the concept....beauty comes from within, but sadly we do not always recognize/practice this way of treating people. This meditation helps to remind you to bring your awareness back to focusing on inner as opposed to outer beauty.

True Beauty Is A Light In The ❤️
A+⭐️This track was a spiritual mediation. We all struggle with self-doubt. But, true beauty is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that you lovingly give, the passion that you show & true beauty only grows with passing years. “For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” - Audrey Hepburn.

Being beautiful.
The true beauty is your true nature. Someone maybe beautiful on the outside, but they maybe ugly inside. It can’t be judged by appearances alone.

I’m dealing with way too much in my life right now. I’m going through a probable divorce, financial stress, and antidepressant withdrawal. I hope this helps

I felt sad and I also I acknowledge that the words I love you mean less to me now
I learned that beauty comes from within and it’s about the energy that is given off not about physical appearance

Snap judgement
I should breath before I speak and ask myself if my initial reaction to a person is what I truly feel or if it’s a result of a learned response

I am overwhelmed by my relationship. I am sad to exist in a friendship instead of romance.
I need to get happy with myself in order for my relationship to flourish. Or maybe he just can’t be trusted? I know that deep down.

I cannot judge by outer presence, but that being love will send a ripple effect and I will begin to see everyone (including myself) as beautiful.

I learned that a person can be beautiful on the outside and a wasteland on the inside. What we covet physically is not representative of what makes a person beautiful and unique.

True beauty
I learned that real beauty isn’t in the clothes you wear or how pretty the highlights in your hair are or how straight and white your smile is, but is in the love we share, the kindness we give, and the good we spread. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and any beholder would have to be blind not to notice that at the end of the day, real beauty comes from the person who’s able to light up a room with their heart, the person who puts others before themselves, and the person who gives without thought of getting something in return. The one with the purest heart is truly the most beautiful

Me gusto mucho el audio, me quede con la frase de “Beauty begins on the inside”. En verdad siento que me recuerda en ser un mejor persona.

Beauty
For years I have struggled with that. I thought beauty is all about the physical appearance and I have worked so hard to look so beautiful that it made me lack content. I will always wish that I had that or this to make me beautiful. Not that I am not good looking but I want to be captivating and so breath taking that i will almost do anything to appear beautiful and be accepted. Beauty is really a thing of the heart,when you feel beautiful you expel beauty without your knowing to people around you. It’s almost as if every thing around you is delicate and must be treated with kindness. Thank you for this mind opening meditation.🙏

True beauty radiates from the inside to the outside. On the inside when you feel happy, joyful and practice loving kindness towards yourself and others is will radiate to the outside

I am doubtful
I know I am beautiful but what if it doesn't show to others and what does really matter to others. How can I block the hate and not reflect on it?

Love
Love is a dull ache you can’t cure. It will make you feel bruised and busted. I want to scrape my skin until it bleeds. I feel weak, vulnerable, and worthless. It started early today. 5/29/18. A feeling of worthlessness, vulnerability and weakness. It feels horrible and I see why I’m single. I don’t think I ever wanna feel this again.

I felt the need to be kind without condition.
Beauty is feeling loved by being your true self. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Free will to chose to see the good.

Beauty is not only on the outside.If one is beautiful on the outside it doesn’t mean instantly that they are beautiful on the inside.I now look at beauty by the way ones personality is like , not by their make up or hair.Beauty is in everyone.Believe it , feel it , share it.

I learned that beauty isn’t about how we are supposed to act, talk or look, but it is about how we learn to love ourselves. True beauty is the definition of seeing good in yourself. Even when others can’t.

Living ... Beautifully...
What a fantastical session!! Dorothy is spot on!! Society and especially the media has tainted & tried to tell us what beauty is, in order to sell it to us. To me that has always been “hogwash”... Wash a hog and he may be cleaner for awhile, but he’s still a hog. Now if that hog has a purpose and if he is filling that purpose, he is beautiful. Regardless of what he looks like and because he has no choice. I believe that all people are born with potential beauty. If raised and trained properly they begin to see the beauty in themselves by seeing the beauty in others. Or they began to see the beauty in others by seeing the beauty in themselves. Either way it takes some training, guidance & time in looking for the best in ourselves, others & situations. When 1st choosing to Look for beauty we can begin to see it more often. By choosing to Focus on beauty, we will start to see it everywhere. Do it long enough and you will have the habit of only seeing beauty! And that is a beautiful thing!! ❤️☮️🍀

Beauty is within and kindness comes with love and peace. It is all about the beauty in each person. Our physical beauty on the outside is overshadowed by the amazing qualities inside that shines through. Focus on the quality of true beauty from the inside out. This is what’s important not just what we look like on the outside. Remember “beauty shines through!” I feel at peace. I know I’m a really beautiful person on the inside, not just the outside. I am enough. I am beautiful. I am loved. I am kind. I am appreciated. I am respected. I am beautiful inside and out!!! No one can take that away from me.❤️

Stereotyped Ideal
I often see beauty in "broken" patients, people who is in fact fighting to be better, and I see people brave enough to cry, to love, to heal. Although sometimes I search for the stereotypical ideal of beauty for me and others, I've learnt true beauty isn't necessarilly like that.

I will not take anything for granted, because everything has importance. I will start to find the true beauty in everything that surrounds me.

‘Tis quite the concept of life, as many attempt to iterate such notions in objectivity. Others with the sole ideation of relativity. Presumably it’s “one own right” to decide

True Beauty is who you are
I learned that true beauty is displayed in how we give, act, and receive. This kind nd of beauty can only be seen in the reaction you receive or how a person makes you feel. This can be shown, felt, and seen. Trueness is only felt.

I felt calm and peaceful
I am reminded that beauty and love come from inside. That I can be love, I can light up my world with myself...... I don’t need someone else to do that for me. I don’t need someone else in order for me to feel love, to be beauty. I can bask in another’s view of me, but it comes from within me.

It is true that when you are happy you feel beautiful. Also the appreciation of beauty heightens when we are happy.

I learned that beauty doesn’t mean you have to wear nice clothes or make up.... it means you have to be happy with yourself and than the inner beauty will come out and will be seen from the people around you

Shining...
True Beauty has nothing to do with the physical characteristics we typically think of but is the color of Love (acceptance without judgement) that shines through our “All Knowing” smile! It starts from the inside with our level of acceptance of self as we are - this determines how big & wide our smile will be. It gains richness & depth of color based on the amount of our striving & effort put forth to becoming the best version of self we have the potential to be. But it shines forth based on the Compassion (care that others have all they need to fully become their highest version self) we have for ALL fellow “Earth-mates” (be they plant, mineral, animal or human). This is our brightness! THATS how I like to see true beauty! ❤️☮️🍀

It doesn't lie in what you think you are. Rather, in how you feel you are. It doesn't lie in the glossy exuberance of the outside. Rather, within the serene mindfulness of the inside.

Dorothy does it again! This is “must listen” life coaching session about the essence of what beauty truly is, lest we forget. After reading a disturbing article this morning about an incident of hate and the fact that “othering” has increased 94%, this session was exactly what I needed to hear, and as always - it simply popped up as the first suggestion. To the wonderful youth in our Aura tribe, as a former high school teacher, I reach out and invite you to listen to this session. If you understand True Beauty, you will make a difference!!!! 🙏♥️

Please Listen
Many in our population do not see nor do they seek to find, the true beauty in others. They have become very self- centered and their attention to surface beauty is the lens through which they see, find, and attribute value to others. True beauty is not what we see on the outside of any individual, but rather it is the beauty that comes from deep within and is visible to others when presented in the form of genuine love and caring. True beauty, or love, is kindness and grace. It is the business of our soul.♥️

I'm sure I listened to this before a long time ago but didn't favorite it for some reason. However, this time I did favorite it because it is a fabulous reminder that true beauty starts within and radiates out into the world and it is lovely to behold. Namaste, have a great day. Happy St. Patrick's Day. ☘️ Wear your green, so you don't get pinched.

It will take practice seeing beauty in this way. I don't feel beautiful, hardly ever. But I do recognize beautiful people, despite what they look like. And I do appreciate those qualities of beautiful people more than what is just asthetically pleasing. I feel good around good people, regardless of what they look like.

True Beauty
After reading Susan’s wonderful reflection earlier on this life coaching wisdom session, I had to listen. Wow! It is filled with so much wisdom that I feel as if everyone should give this a listen! It is sad, but true that we live in a very judgmental society. We often base beauty on what we see. But, we’ve all seen beauty on the outside of someone and then at a later date, we have gotten to know their inner nature. Their inner nature was perhaps filled with so much ego that they weren’t seen as beautiful to us anymore. That is because true beauty is found from within us. We feel beautiful when our inner nature brings kindness to everyone we see, when we give from the goodness of our heart without expectations, when we Know we are acting as Love. Therefore, if our inner nature is beautiful, we will be ‘perceived’ as beautiful! True beauty is after all, found within us all! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️

Being Love
I really liked the phrase that she said, “being love” because it made me realize that love is what makes things beautiful. When people are passionate about something they love it radiates a type of beauty.

Beauty is not physical perfection. All my life I have looked at my physical self for esteem and self-worth. When I didn’t meet my expectations, my self-esteem and self-worth plunged. I wasn’t perfect and therefore not beautiful. My inner beauty is who I am and that inner beauty lives in love, kindness, and compassion. That is my true beauty and the foundation I must firmly establish.
