Core to being spiritual, in my view, is maintaining a sense of transcendence. That’s a “big word” way of saying connecting with the mystery and wonder outside of ourselves and our humdrum routines.
Probably the most effective way for me to maintain that connection is through nature. Growing up at the base of the Sierra, I particularly resonate with the majesty of the mountains. Yet any view of the grandeur of the earth triggers that transcendent reflex for me. That’s why I love Terje Sørgjerd’s photography. Here’s his latest, with views from western Norway.
