Yesterday I wrote about the idea of beauty which young girls get when they watch TV or just see magazines and advertisement everywhere. And I also said yesterday that they create the wish to be beautiful like the model that they see on the poster or the actress in the movie. They believe in this illusion which is created by media. This illusion has become part of the daily life. Of course everybody knows that the model does not look like this in real life. We know that there are a lot of tricks like light, makeup and also editing in the computer. But still the illusion that the media creates has a big influence. And not only young people are influenced.
TV series and movies create a whole new world of illusion. It is made for entertaining people and could be very far from reality. For some time of entertaining it is fine but what actually happens is that we get drawn into this fake world with its excitement, the perfect moments and the perfect story. We get the feeling that we are missing something in our lives. This message is somehow delivered and I believe that it is wanted because the consequence is that many people try to imitate what they see. They want to wear the clothes that they see, they want to have the same things and they want to experience the same. So they go and buy and maybe at some point they realize that it doesn’t help. At some point the illusionary world shatters and you come back into real life.
In real life a tragic incident hurts more than the actress showed in the movie. In real life the perfect moment is maybe not accompanied by romantic music. But you know, in real life you have real feelings! You do not have to pretend anything, you do not have to act. If you are yourself and live your own life you are wonderful and beautiful and most important of all, you go deeper in your feelings. When the perfect moment comes in real life your body is like an instrument and your heart creates the most beautiful music which only you are experiencing.
