Cultivating the Right View Point of the world we live in is the first step to a way of living that nourishes our perception of ourselves as individuals and as part of a collective, embracing the concept of oneness, recognizing that we are all interconnected and part of a larger whole.
This understanding in the context of the Beauty Myth allows us to dissolve the barriers created, fostering a more authentic and diverse perception of beauty, away from the popular media and encouraged social norms.
The Right Viewpoint helps us shift our focus from external appearances to cultivating a deeper connection with ourselves and the world around us, to appreciate the inherent beauty in every individual, regardless of age, body shape, or any other superficial criteria imposed by the beauty myth. Encouraging us to question and challenge the illusions created by popular media. It prompts us to explore and reframe our understanding of beauty beyond the narrow confines dictated by societal norms.
Yoga teaches us that beauty is not something external that can be bought or attained; it is an inner radiance that stems from a state of good health, physical vitality, and mental well-being.
As we delve deeper, we uncover the interconnectedness of the various aspects of our being, including our physical, mental, and spiritual selves.
This holistic approach to well-being contributes to a more sustainable and authentic understanding of beauty, free from the narrow constraints imposed by the beauty myth.
When we take our yoga practice “off the mat”, become receptive to the environment we live in, more sensitive to toxins on our skin, the air, soil, food and tune into the beauty in nature. develop a sense of inner peace and contentment, which radiates outward, transforming our perception of beauty and enabling us to see the beauty in others and the world around us.
This holistic interpretation of beauty, this viewpoint, this perception is a relief. Liberating us from the pressures of conformity, and allows us to live freely, to live in harmony with who we are and what we “look like”.
What others think of us, their viewpoint falls away and the battle of popular medias continuous messages and pressure disappear, the myth is dispelled.
