If you have watched either the Oscars or the Golden Globes, you will have seen all these glamourous women stars strutting like peacocks with all their finery on the Red Carpet. Most of them decked out in the most gorgeous gowns by the finest creators, stunning hairdos, and rich jewels, appearing to the world that they are the best.
However, if you will note this Red Carpet event only lasts one night and once it’s all over and those stars have to return home, remove their dresses, makeup and all that finery and get back to their bossy husbands and noisy children again. Somehow, all this expense and feeling marvelous was merely a short run windfall and unreal.
I only share this with you because I believe that most women out there live a more simple life that doesn’t have to doll up, and enter the Red Carpet pageantry to express their true femininity. In fact, I believe that in many cases beautiful women might have a more difficult time expressing there’s because they depend so much on externalities to feel of value. But in many cases less attractive women, might turn to more enriching ways to enter nirvana.
Case in point, one day I went for a walk which I do in the desert daily and happened upon a depressed man in his late 50’s. He was telling me how his job and his drive back and forth to work, a job that was not his first choice, but one he had to rely on it to survive. Yes, there are many individuals both men and women in that same position from which they all tend to live from survival. Many depressed; some are on drugs, and many more just trying to getting by on autopilot.
Well, during our walk he told me that he wished he could be more like his sister. He proceeded to tell me that his sister was a plain looking woman and didn’t wear fancy clothes, extreme hairdos or expensive makeovers but he said she has a flow of confidence as she walks. He then asked me how come his sister who is unattractive, and can still appear so stunning.
I knew right there what extra dimension she had. Here is this wonderful sensual lady who was so feminine appealing, she was incorporating a wonderful inner practice, which included simple daily rituals that she herself had created over the years, and which helped display a divine spark that she radiated within.
I knew what his sister had going for her. Through some sort of daily practice one being Yoga and meditation and where she was able to create a sensual life, something that many celebrities and beautiful women would have hoped throughout their lifetime to experience, and she didn’t need any Red Carpet to feel feminine magnificent.
Yet after our walk had ended I couldn’t explain to him what his sister’s secret was. It is like trying to explain to a person what orange juice tastes like. For him to understand how his sister lived, he would have to go through a similar life experience. So telling him how his sister lived and why she was so much together, I know wouldn’t help him one iota.
I realized that he had to find his own way to experience her inner beauty by him creating his own daily practice as his sister had done. Unfortunately, I know I could only offer him some hint of her daily practice, which I did hoping to get him started.
