To nourish the inner aspect , Oscar winner Hollywood actress Gwyneth
Paltrow (Shakespeare in Love) suggests pursuing websites in the
latest newsletter of her blog GOOP nourish the inner aspect . She
says: When I can steal a quiet moment I like to peruse these
websites for inspiration Then she lists various websites which talk
about romantic portraits, glamorous people, tips on faucets, luxury
home goods, Must Have Gifts, tips on Raising Lifestock, most
compelling global street style, boutique openings, brands like Rag &
Bone , etc.
In this newsletter,
Paltrow directs us to Garance Dor which features street
fashion photography from the streets of London, Paris, Milan,
and New York; One Kings Lane for luxury home goods and sales events
of Holiday Correspondence, Holiday Ornaments and Holiday
Entertaining ; Food52, where home cooks offer recipes on themes like
best beer cocktail or best fig recipe ; River Cottage whose partner
farm in England offers courses on Beekeeping, Allotment Gardening,
Meat Curing and Smoking, Bread and something called Pig in a Day ;
Refinery29 to get current on the newest and best in fashion,
shopping, and emerging trends from the runways to the streets of New
York and London; etc.
Paltrow wants us to beat the masses and pounce onto
invite only GILT, an online 'sample sale , every
afternoon at twelve o clock precisely; and visit the
Green Porno deadpan puppet shows on Sundance Channel
where she learnt about reproduction in the animal and
insect kingdoms , and which shows where the fish we eat
come from . Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has criticized
Paltrow's blog for mostly being too materialistic and
indulging in very mundane things and shallow substances
dealing with temporal and external pleasures, and
catering to outer while claiming to nourish the inner
Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a
statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that the idea of foraying into
inner aspect was wonderful, but he did not comprehend why Paltrow
wanted to market a product with an entirely different label.
Although the tagline of GOOP is nourish the inner aspect , there
were not many deep spiritual and philosophical thoughts in it, which
were essential part of nourishing the inner self. It was very
external , Zed added. He offered to help Paltrow, if asked.
Ancient Hindu scriptures Upanishads indicated that finite
things could not calm an infinite thirst because the delight lied in
the infinite. We could not fill the hollowness with outer materials.
We should aim at uniting with Self, described as sat-chit-anand
(absolute existence, pure consciousness, outright bliss), Rajan Zed
pointed out interpreting the scriptures.
GOOP is said to be a name carved from 36-year old Gwyneth Kate
Paltrow's initials, who is also sometimes known as
