Beauty is one of those things chased but do we really need to seek beauty? Why can’t we look out our windows and see it naturally. All we must do is look for it and we can see it. Even in the rain I will look for beauty.
Everything is Beautiful
“Hey, everything is beautiful in its own way, baby.” - Wonder Man*
Simon Williams, owner of Williams Innovations, loses everything. His villainous Brother, Eric Williams, the Grim Reaper, convinces Simon to embezzle money from Stark Industries. Simon fails and is arrested. Baron Zemo pays Simon’s bail and along with his brother and the Enchantress turns Simon into a being of pure Ionic Energy. Simon Williams as Wonder Man tries to infiltrate the Avengers from the inside as a hero. He fails at his duties. Simon is trapped in suspended animation. Ultron, the evil robot, uses his brain patterns to create the heroic android, the Vision. Eventually Simon Williams is revived, and he becomes the hero Wonder Man. He joins the Avengers with his best friend, the X-man, Beast. Simon Williams has that classic handsome beauty that makes him a superhero movie star. Living in Hollywood, Wonder Man spends his time making movies and saving the world. Although now he is a pacifist seeking salvation and heroism through peaceful non-violence means.
The old ideas are true. “Beauty is skin deep” and “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Our mothers told us, “Pretty is as pretty does.” In her song, Beautiful, Christina Aguilera says, “I am beautiful no matter what they say. Words can't bring me down. I am beautiful in every single way. Yes, words can't bring me down... Oh no. So don't you bring me down today.” Everyone is beautiful in their own way. Beauty boils down to how we act and treat other people. The physical beauties will fail but a life of Balance (physical, spiritual and emotional) will last forever. Seek to look beyond outside appearances and look at how people act or treat others. “Don’t judge a book by the cover” really get to know a person, their actions and beliefs before a decision is made.
