Sebastian Linda is a German cinematographer. His collection of memories while traveling in Sri Lanka in 2015 has been compiled to make this video about Sri Lanka – loving lanka. Hope you enjoy and please do not forget to share. The narration of the video is a which make the video mystical and philosophical. Here is the transcript. We think of time as a one way motion. From the past, through the present, and on into the future. And that carries along with it another impression, which is to say, that life moves from the past into the future in such a way that what happens now and what will happen is always the result of what has happened in the past. We tend to regard ourselves as puppets of the past, driven along by something that is always behind us. Because I want to turn the thing around and picture it the other way! And say, the past is the result of the present! Flowers are brilliantly colored The Stars are gorgeous The smell of the earth and the sound of the rain. Everything is marvelous once again! Once again you see the other. The man, the woman that you love. Do you like this video
