As If You Were on Fire From Within. The Moon Lives in the Lining of Your Skin – Pablo Neruda

We live in a world where unfortunately, outer beauty has been a primary focus and inner beauty a secondary focus. You can simply have good looks and be applauded for it, showered with countless of compliments and get better treatments from strangers.

But believe me when I say that inner beauty prevails outer beauty any day, no matter how much you may desire possessing the latter. Outer beauty can be considered an “entertainment” to society. It’s natural and understood that the human eye appreciates beauty. But it’s even better to be appreciated for being beautiful inside.

A beautiful soul, a beautiful character, a beautiful heart with only good intentions for others – these are the things that we humans should appreciate more of and strive to possess, much more than that of outer beauty.

Remember that your outer appearance will only depreciate in time, but your inner beauty has a massive potential to appreciate. Wherever you go, aim to please people with how you make them feel when they are exposed to your inner beauty, more than how you make them see you for your outer beauty.

  1. Inner beauty is within our own control, what we are born with is just luck.

  2. Nadira,
    I couldn’t agree more, and yet somehow many believe that if they simply wear make up, lose weight, or even do a complete make over that others will instantly like them. However, in my experience, this is not true.
    I have found that a beautiful face may get your foot in the door, but your actions along with your ability and desire to help others gets you further.

  3. This is a beautiful seed! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Finding the people with beautiful souls is one of the greatest feelings in the world. Outer beauty is changeable and will fade, but the beauty that shines from within is eternal and will always be there. I’m fortunate in that I’ve found someone who not only has a beautiful soul, but helps me realize the beauty of my own.

  5. @Fred The Needle: I agree with you on that. πŸ™‚
    @lovelife462: Nicely put! Let’s hope that people will appreciate inner beauty more.
    @gettingthroughanxiety: I appreciate your comment. And thanks for following my blog!

  6. @sargondorsai: Yes, inner beauty is eternal. Glad you have found a beautiful soul for yourself! πŸ™‚

  7. Thank you so much for sharing this post! Sometimes people (including myself) need a little reminder about the difference between inner and outer beauty. This was well said!

  8. Great insight; we are a reflection of the Source of all creation just as the moon is a reflection of the sun.

  9. @Grace: Thank you, and you’re most welcome!
    @wholebydesign: Yup that’s true
