    Beauty can open doors. But beauty can be used as a crutch and I've known girls who used it in very mischievious ways. What do you think?

    Are you talking about beauty on the outside, or beauty on the inside?

    Where do you want to take the discussion? I remember sitting with a couple of peers--we are all women in our fifites--out at the meditation center. One of our young and beautiful sangha members walked by across the lawn in an indian sari, her long hair flowing behind her.

    My friend turned us and said "we used to look like that" and we laughed.

    I have found it to be a bit of a curse.Men are insanely jealous of me, and often turn to childish name calling to get at me.I, of course, never rise to the bait.:cool:
