As Einstein once said “A human being is a part of a whole, called by us ‘Universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty”.
“The last of Summer is Delight — Deterred by Retrospect. ‘Tis Ecstasy’s revealed Review — Enchantment’s Syndicate. To meet it — nameless as it is — Without celestial Mail — Audacious as without a Knock To walk within the Veil.” ~ Emily Dickinson
Just as a plucked string can cause another string to vibrate, we can begin to resonate in harmony with natural beauty by studying and appreciating it. By exposing ourselves to the wonders of nature, we can foster an internal harmony that benefits every aspect of our being. – Thomas Ashley-Farrand
