Plato's Philosphy and My Own
(Realejos(los)Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain)
Gabriele shares her understanding of the Plato philosophy that states that beauty lies within. And she elaborates on what it means to her.
(Story Theme: Philosophy)
If I understand some of Plato's philosophy correctly then this means that we must thrive for beauty and goodness within ourselves.
To attain such is the answer to best self esteem.
You cannot love yourself if you are addicted to any kind of drugs, selfishness or to the wrong Gods. False Gods are not beautiful and will dirty your thinking, attitudes and actions.
Also, you cannot overcome your own shadow, when you look into the wrong mirror.
Only truth and acceptance of what you really are reflect everything worth contemplating.
Sometimes only a miracle can help us change. However, you first of all must believe in it. This can only be achieved by accepting a God who loves us.
Don't look at your beauty of the past and lovely surroundings and conditions of years gone by...
Let go of your history, or try working on this enormous stumbling block which prevents all good to come of the future.
Also, remain faithful to your principles and words, such as Plato did when he was imprisoned.
All those ideas are what I am trying to live by. And I consider them to be most important when getting older.
