Life is Beautiful……
I chose to post this picture because I felt it represented the aim of SHIFT ETHOS. That aim is to help people fall in love with nature again. Although the picture in this post is not his, anyone viewing the works of Louis Schwartzberg, who used time-lapse photography to show us the elegant dance of life in all living things that would otherwise be imperceptible to the human eye, would realize the world is alive, communicating with itself, and is playing in a graceful and elegant dance with itself. In a TED talk he gave in June of 2011, he said it most magniloquently when he said:
“Beauty and seduction are nature’s tools for survival because we protect what we fall in love with. It opens our hearts and makes us realize we are a part of nature and not separate from it. When we see ourselves in nature, it connects us to each and every one of us because it’s clear that it’s all connected and one.”
Perhaps if we can come to discover the beauty and seduction of nature and see our connection to it we would be far more inclined to protect it. To hear his inspiring talk and view the amazing works of Louis Schwartzberg go to:
Enjoy and be inspired!
Love and Light to you,
