Please welcome author Libelle Royce to my blog, who talks about beauty today.

Guest Post: Beauty – A myth, a perception or is beauty the beast?

“He fell into despair and lost all hope…for who could learn how to love a beast ~ The Beauty and the Beast”

I remember reading the very popular fairy tale written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve “The Beauty and the Beast! It is a classic tale describing how we make most of our choices based on visual appeal rather than instinctive wisdom. Even though the beast turned into a handsome prince in the end, still if it were to me I wouldn’t have ended it the same way. I wouldn’t have catered to the mass appeal by beautifying my protagonist just to sell it. That’s the upside, commercialization is extracting in today’s world too. They make people think that anyone can look beautiful rather than assuring them that they already are!

The highest form of service is to uplift someone’s state of mind”

So many philosophers have defined their own versions of beauty and I admire each one of them for braving against the norms. I really hope, bit by bit we all resolve to change the definition of physical beauty which I feel is the greatest curse to the mankind and banish body shaming that is spreading like an epidemic. Especially the most vulnerable and impressionable of all, acutely affected by this are young children who witness this prejudice every single day and lose their self-esteem to the ruling pseudo mandates of the society.

Here is my definition of beauty that is truly heartfelt and hope it changes at least one opinion out there…

Beauty is in the unbiased adoptive nature of darkness that makes everything obscure and incomprehensible. Beast is in the discriminating nature of light that illuminates everything only to be judged later. Beauty (light) is the beast; Beast (dark) is the beauty!”

Beauty is in the ‘Acceptance’ and beast is in the ‘Prejudice’! I sincerely wish that the generations to come learn more about appreciating each other and unconditionally accepting their nascent selves rather than becoming a hollow versions of the ones propagating this morbid prejudice on the first place!

Best Wishes,
