Embracing Biodiversity

When people think about biodiversity, they often think about a natural place far away. Yet, biodiversity is all around us when we open our eyes. It is incredibly important to recognize the diversity of life all around us. It is when we truly recognize the life around us that we can truly be grateful for it. Many people speak of “falling in love” with nature, a pet, or even people. Yet, love is not something you fall into or out of. Love is recognized. When we recognize love, we are grateful for it. From there, we naturally live in harmony with all of the surrounding biodiversity we are grateful for.

Reflections

Watch this 10 minute video on Nature. Beauty. Gratitude by Louie Schwartzberg. How can you incorporate having this kind of “eye” for the biodiversity in your midst?

Watch this 7 minute video on the Hidden Miracles of the Unseen World by Louie Shwartzberg. What designs does he reveal that are in harmony with nature and support a natural equilibrium?  Have you ever been inspired by nature to create and design? How are you an “explorer” in your own world?
