Gratitude | Louie Schwartzberg | TEDxSF

Close ×

Nature’s beauty can be easily missed — but not through Louie Schwartzberg’s lens. His stunning time-lapse photography, accompanied by powerful words from Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast, serves as a meditation on being grateful for every day. (Filmed at TEDxSF.)

    Gratitude for Celestials in my Family, providing health, open hearts, and good dreams, and assisting in any way possible, especially by putting us in contact with eachother physically and through dreams and presences, transcending our shyness & helping us to commune with nature in a good way, and to meditate and have mystical experiences. Gratitude for quality Celestials rather than quantity.

    Gratitude for the Diety

    Gratitude for the limitless capacity of the Mind that is the vehicle of our consciousness, and also for the good fortune of a wisely designed body, each one unique in it's own way, that houses the Mind and it's sensations comfortably. (Or is it the Mind that houses the body?)

    "The only appropriate response is gratefulness."
    Thank you, Brother David Steindl-Rast and Louie Schwartzberg.
    May our hearts filled with gratefulness – always. May this gratefulness dispel the fear and darkness at this time of trouble and weariness. May its light dwell in us – always.
