Why is it when you appreciate the beauty of flowers, trees, the moon, stars, etc...?

... people think you're an artist, a mystic or a poet. They say "how aesthetic!". But when you look at a man or a woman's beautiful body, suddenly you become a pervert. They say "this is lust. HARAM!!" and many people have covered themselves head-to-toe and won't allow anyone to get a glimpse of their bodies unless they write a contact between each other and ask the permission of the creator of the universe.....isn't it obvious that something has gone wrong??

If you look at the beauty of nature, your eyes wide open, your senses wide open to allow the beauty to enter you - no one minds and they even start praising God. Do the same with another human being, your eyes wide open and your senses drinking in the beauty of the woman or man, people will start telling you to ask God's forgiveness. No one will appreciate what you're doing.

What has gone wrong? Why did people have to damage the world in which I have to live in -- far more tremendously and deeply than any pollutant could ever dream of?? It's like the entire past of our culture has been purposely design to poison our experience of life on earth and to keep us fearful, shameful and suppress all pleasurable aspects of our existence.

    This is an excellent question. I believe the human body is a beautiful work of art. In fact, in almost every college art class there is at least one section on the nude human body. If you look in museums you will see many many works that show the beauty of the human form, even with its imperfections it is beautiful. I think the main issue with why people think of it as perverted, as you put it, is because religion has made us ashamed of our bodies. If you were raised according to the old testament then you know when adam and eve ate the proverbial apple, they gained knowledge and covered themselves where before they were happy just to run around in the nude. Perhaps it makes people feel separate from lower life forms by dressing? But then you have that whole group that dresses their dogs which is a totally different ques ion...lol

    Personally, I can see the beauty in a human body, no matter the sex, age, or whatever....there is a beauty in how it works, how it changes as we grow from a child into adulthood into old age. I am not a lesbian but I can appreciate the beauty of a female (or male body) body in a totally nonsexual way. So, just so you will know, you are not the only one out there who feels the same way. My husband also can see the beauty in both male and female bodies. So, what you are feeling is the pressure we all feel from uptight people who try to run everyone life.

    we don't do sex with nature

    add:

    I understand what you mean because I was also in the same condition as you for some time. Appreciating the beauty of all the things eyes can see, nose can smell, ears can hear, and skin to touch. It may be to nature, humans, war or industrial machines, and other work of arts. Unfortunately, when admiring another human physical beauty, there is a limit that others may mistakenly think that we are lusting at them when we are not, plainly admiration and no lust. But again, we don't do sex with nature and that is why other people can not avoid this fear that something might be violated .

    Lets cool this up.

    No one says if you look at the nature, that you are an "atheist." If a muslim says this, then its a wrong thing. As Islam tells to seek knowledge, and this can be done by looking at the nature, and when you look at the nature, this will make you think that who else can make this beautiful creation? its simple that it is Allah (swt). And also, this will make you ponder on how great Allah (swt) is e.t.c

    And moving on, you say by looking at the women, this is total different.

    Tell me why is the rape cases are increasing daily? because not looking at the women? NO

    Tell me why there are too many under age adultery? because not looking at the women? NO

    Tell me why there are homesexuality common? because not looking at the women? NO

    Tell me why there is gay marriage? which animal dont do such thing, because looking at the women? NO

    You need to think critically aswell, not only get yourself to critisize others.

    Its good, look at the nature, but looking at the women, 90% will cause opposite things to what you think. Nature doesnt causes lust, but women do.

    This is the reason why women are used in commercial ads e.t.c

    Simple

    You dont have lust towards other objects of nature. You can appreciate their beauty without the fear of committing sin.

    The same does not apply to humans of opposite gender.

    Source(s): its common sense!

    that is it. i will cross my limits for this question.

    you see there is a tube like thing between your legs. it is called penis. it is your sexual organ. you put that inside a vagina.

    when you look at the stars and trees and cute little ***** cats (hah i made a funny) your penis does not enlarge. that means when you look at non human beauty your penis does not send signals to your brain that you should put your penis inside that thing. actually if your brain wants to put your penis inside a vigina and you look at the nature's beauty of trees and mountains and cute little ***** cats (hah made funny again) your penis shrinks and you dont want to put it into a vagina anymore.

    that is the difference between all hte other beauties and women's beauty. the problem is your penis. it enlarges when you see a women's beauty.

    when your penis enlarges you do things as much as you can to put your penis inside a vagina and that brings up social problems.

    so in short cut your genitals and you can see as much as women's beauty as you want :)

    PIECES!!!!
