A spritual moment for a non-believer


Our sun was resting behind a cluster of clouds as the day was coming to an end. The immense power of our star peaking out from behind the clouds struck me as a special moment. Slowly, the sole ‘giver-of-life’ to this planet came into full view as it settled towards the horizon. The magnificence of the event created a sense of power in my body as I marveled at the unmatched beauty and grace of our sun. Since I consider myself much more of a secular than religious person, one might ask how I then fail to see god’s hand in this beauty. The universe, or as some like to refer to it, nature, is my deity. Every time I look to the heavens, I take a deep breath as I marvel at the countless miles of empty space and the unfathomable number of galaxies, stars and planets. Many people search for god through the writings of man or deep in their souls, but I search for inspiration provided to me by the complexity of the world around me. Many of these answers are seen in the eyes of our fellow humans or a stone lying on the ground; mystery is all around us, all we need to do is open our eyes to see, while we ask the right questions.
