  • Pause For Thought

    From Sarah Joseph, Editor of emel, the Muslim lifestyle magazine:

    "My mum owned one of the world’s top model agencies, and so from the age of three week old - I grew up in a world where everyone was slim and beautiful.

    No man was shorter than 5’11”; no woman shorter than 5’8”. Slim, toned, muscular, bronzed and preened – the models were human examples of Adonis and Aphrodite.

    Such beauty is tangible, and you can watch its effect upon people. A beautiful woman (and even a man) will turn heads as they walk down the street, leaving us in admiration and sometimes in envy.

    The effect of someone beautiful is spell-binding in many ways. Yet for me - perhaps because I was surrounded by so much of it – I became almost immune.

    I became interested in the search for inner beauty, for the person and character behind the glistening eyes and perfect teeth.

    Hours and hours of my childhood were spent in the model agency, and I learnt who was kind, who was gentle, who was honest, who was patient.

    Inner beauty is not instantly tangible, but you can still recognise it, feel it, and be attracted towards it. It’s often something that you can’t put your finger on, yet it’s something which can be cultivated and worked on.

    Indeed inner beauty becomes far more intoxicating than anything external, and it stays when outer beauty has faded away.

    The New Year often has us focusing on our outer beauty – be it our weight, or our body shape, yet imagine if we focused on our inner self and tried to beautify that. Imagine if we worked on being generous, on reaching out to our fellow humanity and bestowing small kindnesses towards them.

    Compassion and tenderness towards others transforms us, and such action would begin to show externally.

    And here’s the miracle of inner beauty – as it flourishes and grows, nothing can quell it, and the passage of time will not cause it to wither away."
