Daily Prompt Response: Beauty

Absolute Beauty
We've all heard that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Do you agree?
Is all beauty contingent on a subjective point of view?

I would agree with this statement, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Different people have different point of view. If you are a child who lives in poverty and nothing else, then you see your first glimpse of civilization, there are two ways that you could react.

  1. You could be amazed by everything you see and find beauty in the things that most of us take for granted.
  2. Because you have a different worldview, you could be suspicious and see the problem that people who are used to it don’t see.

It would really depend on the who the observer is.I happen to like The Bronze Bow, but my best friend can’t stand it. To her, it is not a beautiful book. Another example, my sister’s favorite color is bright orange, but for me, there are very few shades of orange (or yellow) that I actually like. Bright orange is beautiful to her.


     Is all beauty contingent on a subjective point of view?   

     When you look a the media and the fashion world and what’s “in” right now with this in mind, you wonder why what certain designers or celebrities say about being beautiful is considered the standard of beauty, when they are human beings just like the rest of us who have our own preferences and perspectives. The only one who is and therefore knows the absolute of beauty is God Almighty. He created the heavens and Earth.

 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.Genesis 1:1, 31a. HCSB
