heartbeat of nature

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe to match your nature with Nature.”

― Joseph Campbell

This makes me think of the times I feel so connected in nature… and how drawn I am to breathtaking photographs of the natural world.

How can we make our heartbeat match the beat of the universe?

By slowing down to the speed of the universe, nature and life itself!

This is your slow down call for today folks.

Go slowly in wonder and gratitude.

  1. Those photos were breathtakingly beautiful. 🙂


  2. Thanks, Val! Perfect photos for the post. I find that I connect best to the heartbeat of the Universe while listening to the waves lapping/crashing on the shore.


  3. Slowing down is a hard one for me – but I love the photographs! What a great way to stop and be one with nature!


    • Thank for sharing Kate. In our busy connected lives its important to find something that inspires us to pause …. even for a moment 🙂


  4. You know what slows my heart beat? The sound of ocean waves hitting the tropical beach. I love that sound.

  5. The lead photo is stunning!!!!

    And the end photo literally made my heartbeat slowdown.

    I read somewhere many years ago that the earth pulses at 7.8Hz — but it has quickened in recent decades. I always liked that idea — that the earth has a pulse.

    Your post quietened my pulse — and I felt in tune with the earth.

    Thank you!


  6. That quote by Joseph Campbell is absolutely superb Val. I must say that apart from Jung he has probably had the most profound influence over my life. Just a wonderful human being.


    • I agree Don … he has so much practical wisdom that makes me pause and reflect. I’m only now getting to know his work.


I'd love to hear from you ...
