While facing the finality of my life here on this beautiful planet, I cannot help but appreciate the natural world's awe-inspiring beauty, which brings a sense of humility, compassion and love where egotism has vanished. The natural world is mysterious and the power of its awe-inspiring beauty can change one’s perspective. It is said that Darwin considered empathy or compassion to be our strongest instinct, one that launched the success of the human species. (The Nature Fix, Florence Williams)
When I find myself in the natural world, I am overwhelmed with awe and the impression of timelessness, beauty, peace and harmony and, most importantly, love. To love art is to love nature.
