‘Mr. TSO’ is a Norwegian photographer that delights in showcasing nature’s beauty. The vibrant hues and stark contrasts of his videos and photos make me seriously reconsider why I choose to live a city! This video is no exception. Mr. TSO spent 7 days a top and around Spain’s highest mountain El Teide capturing what I’m sure was an amazing experience. El Teide summit reaches 3,718 meters (12,198 ft) and is the highest point in the islands of the Atlantic. This noted scenic region is a frequent stomping grounds for anyone trying to photograph the stars.
As you watch this beautiful BBC-esque video I would love to share an intention and a quote I came across. We are all one no matter visible distances or differences. You are your neighbor,even your dog shares atoms with a sun going supernova somewhere in a distant universe. With love and acceptance we can allow these connections to devour our sense of self. When there are no separations we can operate as the most diversified community the universe has ever seen.
Famed astrophysicist Dr Neil Degrasse Tyson aptly shares this thought,
“Yes we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up, many people feel small because they are small and the universe is big. But I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity. That’s really what you want from life, you want to feel connected…”
