Cailin has written a great description of what it’s like to look up (and around) at the awesome beauty of the Universe we live in:
These are the moments that fill me with the greatest pleasure and wonder, my appreciation for my own existence swells within me and I feel my eyes glaze with tears of joy and sorrow.
I once read a comment by someone made when viewing a beautiful sunset. They said, ‘How can anyone look at something so beautiful and think there is no god?’ I didn’t say anything, but I was thinking, ‘Why would I want to pollute something so wonderful with something so ugly?’
