One of the very unfortunate things about living in a time & culture that sees female beauty as superficial and shallow is we are unable to benefit from its deeper powers. Indeed, our mania to insult, belittle, demean & demoralize female beauty seems almost meant to keep us from ever peering into those depths (see the public response to Kim Kardashian's Paper magazine cover and the Shirt Storm over the recent comet landing). It's as if we sense there is something immensely powerful in female beauty that could change our lives in ways that make us VERY uncomfortable. There is. Female beauty is a dreamcatcher. It's the women who possesses or project our deepest values and highest ideals whom we find beautiful. That's why we get upset when others don't like our tastes in beauty. So this New Years we suggest you make a resolution to look at precisely why you find the women beautiful that you do, and to be prepared for a potentially live-changing shock, because as it turns out, we don't always value what we think we do. For example we might think we value kindness and humility yet discover that it's independence and pride that we actually find beautiful in women. Amy Adams or Jennifer Lawrence? Your preference reveals your true values, the ones you hold deep down where you rarely look, the things you are when you're alone and unguarded. Only looking at beauty tells us who we really are. And only when we know who we really are, can we set about either changing it, or feeling really good about it, and start living a life more free of weakness, misdirection, false starts and wasted energy. You might even find your taste in beautiful women changes when you realize they possess or project your real values. In short, only when we realize female beauty is deep, honest and beneficial will mankind ever be.
