Have you ever felt beauty? Not have you ever felt beautiful or seen beauty, but have you ever felt beauty?

There is something about beauty in nature that transcends explanation. This is the only thing that I know of at the moment that is truly indescribable and its right in front of you. All you have to do is go outside and just gaze at nature and try to see its beauty in all of nature's glory, and you might know what I'm talking about. Of course I'm not going to accurately convey what I'm talking about on here because like I said, it is really indescribable.

This indescribable beauty in nature is the closest thing to God that I have ever experienced and its more than an exterior appearance, it is something you feel.

When you love what you see, what you see is beautiful. Indescribable beauty is felt and seen and it feels deep.

there have been times during gardening where I have gotten so swept up in the beauty of all the life around me I was moved to tears. This also happened when I went to Niagara falls. Being up close to that kind of raw, beautiful power was enough to steal your breath away.

There's a whole branch of philosophy dedicated to the study of beauty - very interesting stuff. I got turned onto it after reading an awesome book by Mark Halperin called "The Soldier of the Great War", where a student of beauty lives through WW1.

Yes - I have and know what you mean. I have always found the beauty in nature to have a powerful, spiritual quality - even before I had begun to contemplate such things.

For me, this quality is enhanced when I can stop what I call the "label thoughts" while enjoying a beautiful scene - when I'm not thinking 'pretty blue', or 'vivid sunset,' etc., just experiencing it.

I have had moments during a drive out into the country or a walk through the woods and I suddenly come to an area that makes me gasp. It is during those moments that I am surrounded by such beauty, I feel almost as if I stepped into a part of the world that was made so beautiful especially for me as a gift. Nothing matters during those moments. Sometimes I am afraid to breathe or move, out of fear that the scene will suddenly change. And I do not dare touch anything.
