My brother posted something on my Dad's forum telling people to stop, close their eyes, and use their other senses to explore their surroundings for a few moments. Be it in a busy city or in a secluded clearing in the middle of the woods. I think it's a fantastic idea. Not just to help sighted people to understand what it would be like without sight, but also to teach people to enjoy the beauty that's around us with all their senses.
However you believe that this planet came in to being... Whether you believe it was created by a God or by some other means... You have to agree that the planet is beautiful. So take the time to thoroughly enjoy its beauty during your stay on it. After all, you don't know how long your stay on this planet will be. And i'm sure that when your time comes you'd like to say that you lived your life to the fullest, right? Then do it!
Smell the scents, listen to the sounds, see the sights, taste the flavours and touch the textures the planet has to offer. Take a lesson from the hunter gatherers of the past and learn what the Earth has to say.
