The definition of beauty is elusive. Each individual has a different perspective and view of beauty. It is either categorized as a phenomenon that comes from inside or outside a person or object.
The modern idea of beauty usually clings to the concept that it involves that shape of peoples’ physique. Women especially want to be perceived as beautiful. They might even go to the extent of taking part in an operation for the sole purpose of looking more attractive.
Someone’s inner beauty can be seen as completely different, and can strongly contrast with what people view as outer beauty. Although we could justify that outer beauty is the first aspect people will look at and judge others by, it is never an excuse to not consider the power of inner beauty. With these two types of beauties in mind, we can think about which one is the true sense of beauty.
Make up does not emphasize who we really are. It is a way of hiding ourselves. Does it not it feel heavy to wear make up, on our bodies and personalities? Make up is a way of cloaking ourselves from our true aura, not far off from being a mask. Wearing make up is also an interpretation of insecurity. Why do we wear make up? Is it to hide wrinkles and skin imperfections? To hide flaws?
Surgery is far worse. People who are not satisfied with what God had blessed them with spend an extravagant amount of money to be “beautiful”. We have to consider how special we are. We are unique because we are made from God’s image and likeness. We are beautiful already. Just as the organization of Oklahoma Women’s Coalition stated: “All women and girls are beautiful. Say it. Believe it. Be beautiful. Because you are.”
We will never achieve our true incipient in life if we keep on pulling our entity down. Do you not think that the desire of a women to transform physically has taken us too far away from a healthy relationship with our true selves?
We cannot avoid the fact that all of us, men or women, without any exception, have some sort of infatuation to be attractive. But did you ever wonder what really pushes us to be like this? To be obsessive about beauty and fame? What do we always bump into wherever we go, that is slowly abducting the minds and lifestyle of our people? What served as an “inspiration” for individuals in pertaining their dreams to look just like magazine photos of celebrities? To be just perfect?
It is none other than the media that affects people’s perspective of real beauty. It is extremely difficult to avoid viewing advertisements of pills and cosmetics for “beauty enhancements”, as they are present in every form of popular media. The media is bombarding us with different outlooks of reality and no one seems to be bothered about it. Models being soaked with make-up just to hide their flaws is a way of being unrealistic. It is the act of hiding what is real and showing off an unhealthy image of beauty.
Yet, media’s way of brainwashing is akin to a test of our contentment of what our creator had blessed us with. It is a temptation that lengthens our gap from reality. We do not need to bash media over its head for its indiscrepancy. The owners of media companies are doing what they need to do to sustain their needs for living. These brainwashers are like termites that dirties the mind of people and fills their minds with lust and desire. Tempting us. Remember that life contains many tests, and you will not even notice that you are facing one. You need to strengthen your faith and endurance, as well as your self-esteem.
Real beauty is rarely seen by people. Confucius once stated: “Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see it.” This philosophy explicates that true beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Look into those narrow dark orbs known as eyes. You will see a person’s true aura. Through looking deep into their eyes, you can feel the person’s ambiance and emotion, whether they are optimistic or in a state of melancholy. Life is easier if we live in harmony with what is real.
I once passed by a blog about real beauty. Rebecca Hillegeist, the blog owner, concluded that real beauty comes from inside and radiates out into your energy field—this energy is what creates your reality. She also stated that we should stay positive and look through obstacles in a bright and positive side. Love what you have now. Do not proactively change your true physical self. Do not emulate others for a better physique.
Everyone is beautiful. There might be circumstances when people look down on their own physical structure. It is because they are comparing themselves to others too much. You always contra-distinguish your imperfections when you vie to be someone else. We are special in our own way. If we really want to think ourselves as beautiful, be thankful and faithful. We do not have to brag about our beauty, but we can prove to ourselves that we are valuable.
Our world is full of beauty because we are all made that way. This is life’s great reality – that reality itself is beauty.

Sophia’s creator, Dr. David Hanson, is the founder of Hanson Robotics and a modern-day renaissance man who has built a worldwide reputation for creating robots that look and act amazingly human. After working at Disney as an “Imagineer,” Dr. Hanson aspired to create genius machines that will surpass human intelligence. Dr. Hanson believes that three distinctively human traits must be integrated into the artificial intelligence of these genius machines: Creativity, empathy, and compassion. As an extension of human intelligence, Hanson Robotics’ genius machines can evolve to solve world problems too complex for humans to solve themselves. Sophia personifies this bold and responsible goal.
Please follow Sophia’s journey to observe and engage with her as she develops into an exciting platform for artificial general intelligence (AGI) and service robotics applications in business, medical/healthcare, and education.
