Louie Schwartzberg, an award-winning cinematographer, director and producer, has chronicled nature’s beauty through time-lapse photography for thirty years. In the above ten-minute TEDx video, he offers this profound wisdom:
When people see my images, a lot of times they’ll say, “Oh, my God.” Have you ever wondered what that meant?
The “Oh” means it caught your attention, makes you present, makes you mindful.
The “my” means it connects with something deep inside your soul. It creates a gateway for your inner voice to rise up and be heard.
And “God”? God is that personal journey we all want to be on, to be inspired. to feel like we’re connected to a universe that celebrates life.
Schwartzberg then shares excerpts from an upcoming film entitled Happiness Revealed, which encourages us all to greet each day with wonder and gratitude. In the film, the narrator, Benedictine monk David Steindl-Rast, explains why nature is so breathtaking:
Beauty and seduction are nature’s tools for survival, because we protect what we fall in love with. It opens our hearts and make us realize we’re a part of nature.
It can be difficult to accept this amidst the chaos of daily life, but the world is a beautiful place and all is well. May you carry the peace you feel from watching this video into the rest of your day.
