Why beauty is more about how you feel than what you see

Receive daily mindfulness prompts using the digital technology that is integral to our contemporary lives

He who loves the beautiful is called a lover because he partakes of it.

Phaedrus

We all know the common saying that ‘beauty lies in the eye of the beholder’. It suggests that although there are culturally acceptable forms of beauty, personal beauty transcends these outer forms and is the way in which your inner being radiates and is received by others. 

What the eye then sees must first pierce the heart and soul for true beauty to be experienced. This is the art of beholding.

Through contemplation it becomes possible to pierce the surface appearance of a visually appealing subject and comprehend Beauty as a platonic or non-objective form.
