The Film is by Storm chaser and time-lapse photographer Mike Olbinski has been turning his camera lens on the monsoon in Arizona for about 7 years, and this past summer he spent a whopping 48 days chasing storms. After 17,000 miles driven and 105,000 photos captured, Olbinski combined 55,000 of the best shots into the eye-popping time-lapse video above, titled “Monsoon II.”
“There are stunning shelf clouds, gorgeous rain shafts, lots of blowing dust, tons of lightning, and even multiple mini-supercells/mesocyclones.”
“My hope is that you can see and feel that love in this film,” says Olbinski. “The beauty of the monsoon in Arizona. This is where I’m from and this is home.”
Spirituality falls under the virtue category of Transcendence. Transcendence describes strengths that provide a broad sense of connection to something higher in meaning and purpose than ourselves.
Spirituality is believed to describe both the private, intimate relationship between humans and the divine, and the range of virtues that result from the relationships. Spirituality is universal. Although the specific content of spiritual beliefs varies, all cultures have a concept of an ultimate, transcendent, sacred force.
Cultivate sacred moments in which you set aside time to “just be” with a special/sacred object or space/environment.
Build in spiritual tools as a regular practice (ex: prayer, meditation, exploring nature) or as a way of approaching life (ex: giving charity, showing compassion to less fortunate individuals).
