Nature. Beauty. Gratitude.
Louie Schwartzberg from TEDx San Francisco 2012
Louie has taken some amazing pictures of nature, including incredible time lapse images. Here’s a quote he made that I like;
Beauty and seduction …(of nature)… opens our hearts and makes us realize we are part of nature and we are not separate from it. When we see ourselves in nature, it also connects us to every one of us because it’s clear that it’s all connected and one.
He then unveils his new project called “Happiness Revealed”, using the voice and words Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast. But the first part of the video (around 4 minutes in) starts with wonderful wise words of a young girl. How charming and insightful!
Here are a couple of quotes I enjoyed from David Steindl-Rast;
Today is not just another day in your life – it’s the one day that’s been given to you today!
That everyone you meet on this day will be blessed by you – by your eyes, by your smile, by your touch, just by your presence.
