What is life without its mysteries? Were does death truly lie? How far have we come, and how far must we still go? Will the spirit within shed this shell and take flight to heaven or hell? We seek sanctuary within the natural, but this world goes far beyond what we see outside our window.
Deep within, we all have questions. We all catch glimpses. We know the myths, the folklore, the legends that surpass time. Our eyes are open, but we keep them shut. If the supernatural were not to exist, then we could live without knowing, without fearing what we do not understand, but deep inside, we know. We know that there is more going on than meets the eye.
Our hunger for the world beyond has given birth to television shows such as Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Charmed, Journeyman, Brimstone, and Reaper. Our need for that world has filled the silver screen, bringing life to monsters once feared and now desired. Our craving grows, but these days, there is not enough to satisfy it. But our salvation has fallen to the doorstep of the CW’s Supernatural, a television show following deep in the footsteps of its predecessors.
With each journey, the Winchester boys, Sam and Dean take us deep within the supernatural. Ghosts, vampires, and demons lie in wait. The stakes are high. It’s all or nothing, and lives are to be saved. Unsung heroes are born, and another journey begins.
The life of this show was nearly extinguished, but the cry of the fans had given it wings. And this show ignited into so much more, filling our need still to touch that world beyond our own, and now the final battle has come. It is all or nothing, and nothing would ever be the same again.
Riding along that thin line between the worlds of natural and non is the white horse called religion. Pages throughout history tell of origin. Stories of armageddon lie deep in black ink. We all believe in something. We all believe there is something out there, waiting and watching over us.
But controversy follows close behind that white horse. Where did it all begin? What does it all mean? Do we have meaning? Are there angels and demons?
Like the sun rising over the mountain, there is absolute beauty in creation. There is mystery in how the light dances across the world. There is endless time as another day is born. There is life, but within its veil, there is so much more. And it is in the brilliant talent of those responsible for making the Supernatural what it is by pulling back that veil and showing no fear in revealing what lies deep within.
And I hunger to know more. What is an ordinary world if there is no extraordinary? What is life without meaning? Are we pawns on a chess board or bishops and queens? What secrets do live within the supernatural, and what is our world without them? And when will our eyes finally be open?
And there in lies the dance of the bad angels, a song by Booth and the Bad Angel. Life is a journey, and we all have a road to walk. And we all believe in something. We all want to rise higher, lift our wings to the heavens above, and know nothing but love. We want to be a part of something. We want to know, to feel, and to be alive. And this world is so much more than we know.
