Nature, beauty and gratitude

Louis Schwartzberg shoots the most amazing time lapse videos that must surely awaken even the most materialist heart. My personal belief is that spiritual enlightenment is simply the experience of our hearts reaching out to touch God in this one moment, and every moment as it arises. Natures beauty is one of many gifts to which the only response can be gratitude. It is amazing that once we are awakened to our blindness, we understand that beauty is there in each and every moment, until life means we forget again to see it again….

“Beauty and seduction are natures tools for survival, because we protect what we fall in love with. Beauty opens our hearts, making us realize we are a part of nature and not separate from it. When we see ourselves in nature it connects every one of us with everything else……inside your soul nature creates a gateway for your inner voice to rise up and be heard, and God?, God is the personal journey we all want to be on, to be inspired and to feel like we are all connected to a universe that celebrates life.” – Louis Schwartzburg
