The Beauty of Nature

Many people are so imprisoned in their minds that the beauty of nature does not really exist for them. They might say, “What a pretty flower,” but that’s just a mechanical mental labeling. Because they are not still, not present, they don’t truly see the flower, don’t feel it’s essence, it’s holiness – just as they don’t know themselves, don’t feel their own essence, their own holiness.
— Eckhart Tolle
