Cat - Black

Surprising Mirrors

The following excerpt is from Dean Koontz's book "Odd Thomas". These words really struck a cord with me. I still find myself struggling with fully embracing the spiritual/metaphysical mysteries. I have belief, but as Dean says, one develops a drunkard's thirst...
Most people desperately desire to believe that they are part of a great mystery, that Creation is a work of grace and glory, not merely the result of random forces colliding. Yet each time that they are given but one reason to doubt, a worm in the apple of the heart makes them turn away from a thousand proofs of the miraculous, whereupon they have a drunkard's thirst for cynicism, and they feed upon despair as a starving man upon a loaf of bread.
