“A lake is a landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.”
-Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Nature provides us with abundant opportunities to step out of our own minds that are often riddled with compulsive and repetitive thinking patterns, and nourish our souls with unlimited peace and joy. The caveat is that only the extent to which we are able to appreciate the beauty within us are we able to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.
Just sharing a few random thoughts that were lingering in my mind from an inspiring walk around a lake and into the woods, while listening to Eckhart Tolle’s ‘New Earth’ on Audible ❤️
