"The essence of any religion lies solely in the answer to the question: why do I exist, and what is my relationship to the infinite universe that surrounds me?" Leo Tolstoy
I never cease to be amazed and be in awe of our skies on a clear night. Last night was one of those nights for me. The stars were out in all thier glory. At times it can be a spiritual experience, just observing the beauty of a night sky. A one on one relationship with the natural world in it's rawest form. It's not hard for me to see how the ancient people had a solid connection to the heavens and the stars in the sky. And why it was so important to them. Modern society has become so far removed from that connection that I feel sorry for the masses. They have lost an important part of thier being. They have lost the magic that comes with that connection. X.
