TED Talk Takeaway: Louie Schwartzberg on Nature, Beauty, Gratitude

This has to be one of the most beautiful videos that I’ve ever watched… Put together very nicely, and I’d never have been able to express it better than this. Also, read from ThoughtCatalog an article “Don’t Take This for Granted“. Two beautiful pieces. Enjoy.

Do you know that 80% of information that we receive comes through our eyes? Aren’t we grateful for our brains, that can take these electrical impulse that come through light energy to create images in order for us to explore a world? Aren’t we grateful that we have a heart that can feel these vibrations, in order for us to allow ourselves to feel the pleasure and beauty of nature?

Today is not just another day in your life. It’s that one day that is given to you to you today. It is a gift – and the only appropriate way to respond is gratefulness. If you respond as if it were the first day in your life, and the very last day in your life, then you would have spent this day very well.

Begin the day by opening your eyes and being surprised that your eyes can open, that incredible array of colours that is offered to us for pure enjoyment.  Look at the faces of the people you meet. Each one has an incredible story behind their face, a story that you could never fully fathom.

Open your heart to all these blessings and let them flow through you, and everyone you meet on this day will be blessed by you. Just by your eyes, by your smile, by your touch, just by your presence. Let the gratefulness overflow into blessing all around you, then it will really be a good day.
