“Look deep into nature & then you will understand everything better.”
In a city like Vancouver the beauty of nature is inescapable and for that I am ever more grateful.
I have thoroughly enjoyed spending the summer hiking, cycling and exploring all kinds of different beachfronts. I could not be more grateful for the breathtaking moments I have experienced just looking at the nature that surrounds me.
I know there is more to life, a meaning shall we say, when I see the exquisite pattern of nature.
After reading one of my favorite books The Power of Now, I can no longer just pass by a leaf on a tree or a butterfly without really recognizing it’s absolute beauty and how utterly blessed we are to be witness to it.
I spend a lot of time outdoors and I encourage you all to do the same. Look at every detail of the next tree you come across and silence the mind… there is an incredible connection between us and nature and we simply shouldn’t ignore it.
