THE TRUTH ABOUT DESTINY

ralph-waldo-emerson-destiny

Destiny: n. your fate which has been modified by making and achieving goals in your life.

Talking about fate frequently assumes that no matter what you do in life you will die of disease, an accident, or have a terrible life filled with mistakes and failures and there is basically nothing which you can do to change this fate.

 

I like to think of life in terms of your destiny which means that through personal will and effort you can frequently minimize disease, avoid accidents, and make your life happier by making smart choices in life and avoiding unnecessary bad risks which will just bring much unhappiness and pain in your life.

 

Stop making new goals in life or stop trying to achieve old goals in life and you will let circumstances or outside influences determine your destiny to a large extent. Continue making new goals or pursuing old ones and you have the potential to make your destiny turn out more to your liking.

 

Few of us are movers and shakers in society who get remembered historically because of their relatively large impact on society but we can consider our lives to be worthwhile if we set many goals and actually achieve many of them. The goals can be relatively mundane such as a good family life, visiting some of the natural wonders of the world, or living an active interesting life pursuing hobbies and fulfilling activities which make you look forward to another day of living.

 

Your destiny may just be to sample many of life’s pleasures on a budget and live a healthy life on into old age.

 

You can of course choose to live a selfish, frantic, hedonistic, drug filled life of pleasure which will not last long but may give you a very intense even enjoyable lifestyle while it lasts. Your fate will be to crash and burn and if you are lucky you will survive with your life which will never again probably be a normal life.

 

Destiny is your fate and what you do in life to try and change the possibility of bad fate upsetting or ending your life. By setting smart goals in life you can avoid many stupid goals which frequently lead to bad fate and a bad destiny.

THE TRUTH ABOUT FASHION

DSCN2346

The ultimate standard of fashion beauty for humans is the symmetric naked human body nicely proportioned plump, skinny, and in between with skin which is blemish free and basically of a monotone color. Call this minimalist fashion if you must but that is the truth.

Form and function are the next important principles in fashion. No belt is preferable to a belt but if you have a big stomach then the belt, suspenders, or sewn in elastic band serves the important function of keeping your pants from falling down or slipping on your body.

A square shaped pocket for cell phone or pen is functional and two symmetrical pockets are more beautiful than just one although the other pocket may not be very functional since it frequently remains empty.

The clothing material should be natural if possible and soft, breathable, and non-irritating to the skin. Permanent press fabrics are more functional than pure natural fabrics in many cases so a departure from natural is acceptable because of a large increase in efficiency or functionality. Synthetic materials can be used for extreme climates as long as there is lining which doesn’t irritate the skin.

A monotone color and texture is preferable to more than one color and texture.

Asymmetry may catch the eye as being unique and perhaps interesting but it is not beautiful in an objective natural sense.

Pointy geometric shapes on the body are not beautiful unless they highlight the shape of the body in some way such as one or two lines running the length of a leg for pants on the side. A u neck cut is preferable to a v neck cut and shoes which follow the natural curve of the toes are preferable to pointy ones.

There are some invented patterns and prints which are aesthetically pleasing to the eye and have withstood the test of time. If you insist on wearing patterns and prints then the best patterns are animal skin imitations and the best prints are those which are as natural as possible and are almost photographic images of the real plant and/or animal and/or technological marvel.

You can wear anything which you like and make the clothing from tens of different materials and make it as busy and wild as your imagination will allow but casual comfortable practical clothing will win out in most daily circumstances.

 

Classic looks which are “eternally” fashionable are frequently minimalist and very functional.

Finally fashion has and will continue to be a status symbol as long as there are rich and poor humans. Kings and Queens had elaborate dress and jewelry to signify powerful positions in society and today fashion designer names are used as status symbols for outfits which can cost hundreds of dollars less if you wear the knock off or imitated designs.
