Night Skies

"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.


  1. I, too, love getting out there to see the night skies. There is truly a sense of wonder to be found there. I often think as I am looking up at the heavens that I am looking into my past.

  3. I feel sorry for them too; those who look at the night sky and feel so small. Because I look, and know that I am connected to everything I see (and that which I do not.) We, my friend, are as big as the universe.
