Reaching Out To The Transcendent


We live today in a highly secular society driven by science and technology.
But even in the midst of so much agnosticism,
I can still sense a certain human need for the transcendent, the sublime, the ineffable.
a hunger and thirst that cannot be quenched by any physical food or drink.
I can see this hunger and thirst in the movies of today.
They are mostly fictional and fantasies; some with human actors, others in animation,
with highly sophisticated computer-generated images.
For the most part, these are but modern renditions of the morality plays of old.
I guess every generation has to express this spiritual longing,
and come to its own answers.
I guess I am not unique in my disquiet,
seeking answers to deep questions that keep arising in my head and my heart.
Yes, these are spirit moments.
