“On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it”– Pierre-Jules Renard
Following on from my Vancouver post, this is regarding the journey back to London travelling on the 747-Mid J. I was fortunate to witness some of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen as we flew over Turu, East Greenland. There is always a fantastic view to see but this was the most extraordinary I had ever seen. At first I could just see the sun peeking over the horizon so i was ready to capture it. Next the whole view and colours had changed and looked like someone had just put a vibrant pink filter on it. As I went to take another picture, it felt like I had literally blinked before the whole landscape had changed again and was coated in a natural blue/violet filter. Considering the altitude we were at, the snow capped mountains below just seemed so close and I couldn’t stop looking at it and the changes. Due to the areas that we was flying over, if we had been super lucky, there was a chance to possibly see the Northern Lights. However, the opportunity didn’t arise this time but I felt so lucky to be seeing these views anyway.
From a spiritual perspective and being into ‘The Universe’, when I’m saying my gratitudes, I don’t feel like I’m just talking to myself or some vast black empty space. This is how I imagine it with the colours and the tranquil sense of peace, working it’s magic out there. Safe to say, I’ve added extra gratitudes on this week for being in a position to be able to experience this kind of natural beauty.
