10 Inspiring Self-Renewal Videos

Self-Renewal is one of those things most of us rarely think about and often we mistake doing nothing with reaching the goal. But self-renewal is not a passive thing, no self-renewal is the result of an active intention.

There are many paths or practices you can undertake for self-renewal such as mindfulness practice, regular exercise and writing but my favorite is spending time in nature. There is something about wandering in nature that refreshes and invigorates like nothing else we can do and that's why the videos below are all centered on nature.

Let yourself wander through the wonders of nature with these videos. Invite the whole management team to power-up their creative and innovative sides by getting out in nature.

And please give a thumbs-up if you like some of them. I've added a few Zen Koans as well as writings to go along with each video.

Earth below me, sky above me, fire within me.

I have four great vows:
When I'm hungry, I eat;
when it's cold, I put on more clothes;
when I'm tired, I stretch out and sleep;
when it gets warm, I like to find a cool breeze.
Baiyun Shouduan

GUIL

Holding up a flower,
The tail is revealed.
Kashyapa smiles,
The monks don't know what to do.

A Walk in Nature

I feel like my boat
has bumped, there at the bottom,
into something big.
And nothing happens !
Nothing...Quiet...Waves...
Nothing happens ?
Or has everything happened,
and we are already at rest,
in something new ?
Juan Ramon Jimenez

Patterned by Nature

Poetry arrived
to look for me. I don't know, I don't know where
it came from, from winter or river,
I don't know how or when,
No there weren't voices, there weren't words, or silence.
Pablo Neruda

Nature

Nature

The first question I ask myself when something doesn't seem
to be beautiful is why do I think it's not beautiful? And very
shortly you discover that there is no reason.

Danube by Ivana Vidic © & Goran Orge Nikolic ©

If you meet a master on the Way,
Greet him neither with words nor with silence.
Give him an uppercut,
And as for understanding, there'll be understanding at once.
