The distance from doubt to inspiration

When some of us were growing up, there was a particular arrangement of mirrors in certain clothing stores that was fascinating. There was a mirror on each side at an angle and one in the middle. If you stood in just the right place, you saw an endless repetition of yourself. Every image in the long line was smaller than the one before. And finally the image disappeared in the distance.

Doubt, it seems to me, has a similar effect. When we seriously doubt that there is real meaning to existence or when we doubt the presence of good, or God, it leads to a diminishing sense of life and selfhood.
