Beauty: Inner, Outer
Heart is filled with happiness when it sees or feels something beautiful. There is magnetic magic in beauty. In general, any person gets attracted by beauty. It may be an object, nature or a person. If a person goes for a beautiful object or nature, it will not change that person's life but if the same goes for a person of beauty, then comes the situation of his or her life being changed.
Regarding binding our lives forever, it is our pleasure and a matter of satisfaction to look for beauty in the other person but it is not always good and healthy to go for outer looks alone. As we often hear the saying, "Beauty is skin deep", we need to look for inner beauty also. When there is outer beauty, one's mind is happy. When there is inner beauty one's soul is happy. Only when there is a balance between these two can there be harmony at a place or between two hearts.
It is not always true that a beautiful person is beautiful at heart too and that there will be peace at home. In the present era, youngsters very easily get infected and deceived by outer looks and they go ahead without pausing and they very quickly get married prefixing this term 'Marriage' with 'Love.' Later when they get used to that beauty, they start looking for inner beauty rather than outer looks. They repent for what they have done without giving much thought. But all this repentance is in vain as they are already bound with another person.
In order to lead a happy life, inner beauty is very important. One can live with a lame or a dumb person. But one can not lead a happy life with an insensitive and heartless person. For any life to be satisfactory or fulfilling, understanding is essential and primary. So if you plan to marry a person just by getting attracted to that person's looks, pause a little. Observe his or her qualities, mentality, behavior for a while and then proceed. Never blindly take important decisions in haste.
Last but not the least, never judge or compare with any person. No one on this earth is perfect. If you see a beautiful person, you think that person is gifted with happiness. If you see a person who is not that beautiful, you tend to feel sorry for that person. But what do you know? She or he might be leading a very happy life though not beautiful. Although a beautiful person, that being's life might have been a big chaos. So, it is wise to ponder on the truth that true happiness and satisfaction lie in a 'Heart' rather than in 'Skin.'
