"The morning!  The Morning!" I cried. "I am caught by the morning and I am a ghost!"   -CS Lewis, The Great Divorce

 

"An "impersonal God"—well and good. A subjective God of beauty, truth and goodness inside our own heads—better still. A formless life-force surging through us, a vast power that we can tap-best of all. But God Himself, alive, pulling at the other end of the cord, perhaps approaching at an infinite speed, the hunter, king, husband—that is quite another matter."

-CS Lewis

 

*****************

"This state of mind [Joy] is like light: traveling faster than matter, yet making no sound, no perturbation.  Pleasure is the restless mind moving along a line, never reaching the end.  Happiness is the mind resting at the end.  Joy is the mind eternally moving at the end, motion at a point: the cosmic dance.  Pleasure is moving; happiness is still; joy is moving while still.  Pleasure is like work; happiness is like sleep; joy is like play.  Pleasure is like action; happiness is like rest; joy is like contemplation.  Pleasure is a river running to the sea; happiness is the full, calm sea; joy is a great and glorious storm on the sea.

“The distinction between joy and happiness explains why joy brings forth tears, why we weep for joy. Joy is not just satisfaction, not just full but overfull, like a fountain.  Our present vessel is too small to contain it, like old wineskins bursting with new wine.  Tears are its spillage, its overflow.  The new wine of joy is a divine thing, and human vessels break and die under that “weight of glory”: “No man can see God and live.”  It is this blessed death that we long for.”  

-from Heaven The Heart's Deepest Longing by Peter Kreeft

 

 

"It is more important that heaven should exist than that any of us should get there."      -CS Lewis

"There have been times when I think we do not desire heaven; but more often I find myself wondering whether, in our heart of hearts, we desire anything else."         -C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
