i believe there is an innate desire in each of us to recognize the beauty in the world around us. i know it is true for me. there is nothing i enjoy more than going outside, lying on my back and staring in awe of this world that God created. how can you overlook the magesty of the sky above you-the way the sun shimmers off the clouds? are you not moved by the way the wind blows across your face, carrying with it the crisp leaves of fall? does the sound of the chirping birds not fill you with an immense yearning to close your eyes and for one moment, be still? how can you not be humbled by it all? this world is filled with surreal beauty, if only we would take the time to notice. how often do you take the time to lie on your back and think? and i mean REALLY think. about the meaning of life, or what the purpose of your existance is?

i believe your answer would be the same as everyone else's. not nearly enough.
