Beauty is universal

You’ve probably seen this viral video before, but I’ve never gotten bored of it.

Matt Harding a video game designer figured there had to be more to life than his day job (been there before?), quit his job, and traveled the world.

This might not be what we typically associate with beauty, but beauty is written all over it.

The very act of leaving the status quo in search for something more is an act of beauty.

These sites and landmarks shown are glimpses of the spectrum of beauty that marks our planet.

I absolutely love the song (fyi – It’s called Praan by Gary Schyman sung by Palbasha Siddique), I have no idea what it’s saying but somehow it screams of beauty.

And the fact that people from all sorts of cultures can get together to do some silly dance is nothing short of beautiful.

This video has almost 30 million hits because something about it deeply resonates with all of us. Sometimes it may seem impossible, or too ridiculous, but every one of us long to be a part of creating and expressing beauty.

Your thoughts?

    Stream of Life
    Poem by Rabindranath Tagore

    The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
    runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.

    It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
    in numberless blades of grass
    and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

    It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth
    and of death, in ebb and in flow.

    I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
    And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.
