Why you left your religion.

The picture you posted has been a source of humility and passion for me ever since I found it years go. I have tried time and again to explain the sheer magnitude of what it represents, with little luck. I have what most would consider a 'spiritual' experience when I sit and think about what that picture represents. Thank you for sharing it; I haven't looked at it in awhile. :)
