What is Beauty?

What does it take in our culture, I wonder, for a woman to feel beautiful?

Audrey Hepburn somehow managed to retain her ideal weight throughout her entire adult life — surely a magical feat that only a goddess could pull off!

After she retired as a ‘super-star’, she became a tireless volunteer and advocate for the suffering children of the world. View photographs and read the story of her life at: Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Hepburn read these words to her son on Christmas Eve 1992, a month before she died. The piece was read at her funeral to memorialize the meaning of her life. It was a fitting tribute to the goddess she was.

Time-Tested Beauty Tips
~by Sam Levenson

  • For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
  • For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
  • For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
  • For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
  • For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
  • People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,
    reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
  • Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
    you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
    As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
    one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

Beauty is as beauty does. Now that’s the real thing, Goddess-style!

  • Colour Energy WorksColour Energy Works So I'm laid up with a broken foot forcing me to slow down and rest. I've been using good old fashioned remedies to speed the healing process. Ice and arnica have helped the bruising. I've also blended up herbs for poultices especially comfrey otherwise known as knit one. I'm using organic aromatherapy's beautifully fragranced knit one cream and earth star to keep me grounded. Homeopathic remedies have included arnica aconite symphytum achillea and eupatorium perf. I wouldn't recommend rushing and I should have taken my own advise as my accident happened on the day of the new moon! Looking on the positive side I've got lots of sorting out to do and I can be creative without guilt. The sunshine is very healing too so looking on the bright side! July 15, 2014 5:38 pm
