Hey, Girl! You Can be Fabulous AND Enlightened Simultaneously…
We judge things we don’t understand and we judge things we’re secretly jealous of. I remember many hikes up Runyon Canyon where I would pass by bleach blonde, latte toting ladies talking about their spirituality. I judged them. I judged them for how they looked and I judged them for their idea of “spirituality”… before I even came to know what spirituality was. (Truth bomb, I still low-key judge people that workout with coffees…) Anyway… they, despite their looks, had reached a level of consciousness that I was not ready to recieve. I guess the misconception that we’ve painted as a society is that enlightened people are either hippies that don’t shower or monks in robes…. Los Angeles has proven to me that a bombshell blonde stripper can still be vibrating on a higher level of consciousness than everyone around them. You can be fabulous and enlightened simultaneously and we shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. (They teach us that in grade school, right?)
I’m extremely self aware and conscious of the Universe’s energies and how they work. I believe in Mother Nature and the powers of the underworld. I frequently write about the law of attraction, full moon ceremonies, and zodiac qualities. So, does sharing a post about a bold new lipstick make me less of a spiritual gangster? NOPE! Spirituality and enlightenment is a state of mind and state of self and how your energy emits into the world. (There’s so much more to it, but that’s a whole other post…) It’s not one size fits all, but at it’s core is similar between other enlightened beings. We all look different and that’s what makes us amazingly fabulous.
While there is more to life than excess and vanity, I understand why people want to look their best. And you should look your best if it makes you happy. Put that lipstick on, rock some killer hair, and pour yourself into your most fierce skinny jeans. Maybe all those things keep someone’s personal vibration high. Raise your vibration and the vibration of the people around you. Be conscious of what fabulosities (just made that word up…) make you feel good. That’s all part of your own personal journey, but make sure that whatever you do, you stay grateful, thank the universe, and help impart knowledge on others. You can be fabulous without being self-serving– are you picking up what I’m putting down?
So, what do you think? Does this make sense? Will you judge people a little less by their outside and truly pay attention to what’s inside their hearts and minds? I know that once I hit my own awakening, I felt really bad for judging those fabulous hikers.
Have a fabulously enlightened day!
This is such an encouraging post. I know for me this is great to know and hear more than once.
Ha! You’d probably judge me, then. My workout is not complete without a pre- and post- coffee. Caffeine is my downfall – but at least I’m weaning off the diet drinks (again.)
But are you working out WITH a coffee? lol
Everything I judge isn’t necessarily things I don’t understand – or am jealous of. When we say “I don’t like it when…” that’s a judgment. I don’t like it when I see people arguing in public – or stay in a restaurant with a screaming baby. I do immediately judge those people as being rude and inconsiderate. However, I don’t judge people based on what they wear or how much make-up they put on – or on their spirituality. The world’s a big place. It can accomodate us all as long as we aren’t trampling in other people’s personal enjoyment of their own space.
This is such a great post. You have given me a lot to think and reflect about in how I view myself and others.
I was aways taught not to judge a book by it’s cover. I try to remember that even to this day and teach my kids the same.
Good things to think about! It’s definitely hard to not judge a book by its cover!
Thanks for these great thoughts. I really do feel my best when I am dressed my best!
I found I stopped judging when I became a parent. Partly because I was too tired to care, partly because the Mommy Wars are hell and I wanted no part in that mess. It transferred over to other parts of my life
I think it’s probably good to be keeping your spirituality in mind even when doing more material things for yourself. Sometimes it’s interesting to think about these everyday things in an entirely different way.
Realizing that how we look doesn’t have anything to do with our understanding of the universe is a great point. I hope we all can get to enlightenment…and I hope I don’t have to give up my coffee to get there.
I have started reading more about energy. I firmly believe you get back what you put out. I always try to keep a positive and kind spirit. I gold this year is to learn to meditate.
judging others is a nasty thing. wouldn’t it be great if we just stopped and thought about how others might be feeling inside before making rash judgements? our world would be a better place if we didn’t judge a book by its cover!

This is such a great way to put it – yes, you can be fabulous and enlightened at the same time! It would be great if people realized that working more toward the second would really help them become the first 🙂
