Imagine a life spent thinking that nothing could be awesome, that the first steps of a baby or of a man on the moon are steps just like any other. Or imagine a life spent never loving, never feeling the presence of a special relationship to warm the heart and sometimes even leaving it wanting.
Imagine a life spent never caring, a life that would consider this to be a world void of opportunity and goodness — where only the sands of time are lost, and the days lead to nothing. Or imagine a life spent never believing that there is anything beyond this world and that life — here and now — is all there is.
Such is the life that lacks faith in the mysteries that animate and satisfy a hungry spirit. Such is the life that lacks breath, and such is the life to pity.
