You are beautiful!

In today's age, so many of us, men and women alike, spend money and time on beauty products and beauty therapies. But does spending time in beauty salons and keeping thin really make us beautiful? Does that mean before doing all that we weren't beautiful?  Getting a facial might clean our skin, loosing extra weight can make us healthier. However, as far as beauty is concern, we were all born beautiful.

Beauty has nothing to do with our age, our socio-economic status, the brand or types of clothes we wear, color of our skin, our height or body weight.

All of us are beautiful. We sometimes hide our beauty or become blind to others' beauty because of our inhibitions, doubts, anger, pride and disbelief but we all are beautiful.

We can enhance our beauty too, not so much with the beauty products but with our smile, humility, our good deeds, appreciation for nature and for people around us and by being thankful.

In addition, when we are at peace with ourselves and with our surrounding and we are able to bless others, God's grace reflects on our beauty and gives it a divine glow.

So, my beautiful friends, let's continue to work towards that divine glow!

  3. Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and then call for Peace on Earth.
