In this world of hectic, where everyone seeks out the fast-paced immediate success, the rush of whirlwind development, the work, the term ‘too busy’, and where burnouts, heart attacks, strokes and stress-caused nerve-wrecks are the order of the day, we don’t have time for beauty anymore…
Beauty is all around us, sometimes loud and huge, like the eternal snow on mountains…
Or the ‘Jungfrau’
Breathtaking monuments of Nature’s powerful snow decorations… Of course, these are two mountains, located in Switzerland, parts of the great European mountain belt, the Alpes. The breathtaking mountains you might think of could be everywhere in the world.
However, beauty doesn’t have to be monstrously ‘jumping’ in our faces. It can be smaller, elegant, in form of a breathtaking horse:
Or even unobtrusive, quiet and blended in, like a unique Lynx
Normally we wouldn’t meet such a rare creature in our every day life. But maybe, sometimes we should just take the time to wander off… break out from our day-to-day routine and take a chance to see something extraordinary.
What if we can not do that? What, if something hinders us?
In this case, we’ll have to open our eyes… we are surrounded by scenery, more beautiful than we can dream of.
It’s sometimes just a little bird, a butterfly, or a flower… but still, we don’t see it anymore. We are too focused on ourselves than to realize what we need to mend our heart is right in front of us.
How about the Goldfinch:
The Zebra colored swallowtail:
It isn’t difficult to discover beauty all around us, just hold still for a moment, open your eyes and take it in… Try it! It doesn’t need a lot, just a few minutes of your time. The time that is so valuable that you don’t use it to enrich your life anymore.
