Seeing Beauty

In our world and society today, it can be very easy to be blind to the wide variety and depth of beauty surrounding us. Firstly, our society tends to create tight definitions of beauty.  Secondly, we are deeply distracted by our technologies.

Beauty is everywhere, and nature is a wonderful teacher for seeing it. She hones our ability to see, “seeing” being a very different thing from “looking”. When we truly see something, we enter the realm of feeling it too. Walk in nature and practice seeing. A whole world of beauty will then gradually reveal itself to you, everywhere.

"Beauty surrounds us, but ususally we need to be in a garden to know it" Rumi
