night thoughts // .01

Good things as well as bad, you know, are caught by a kind of infection. If you want to get warm you must stand near the fire: if you want to be wet you must get into the water. If you want joy, power, peace, eternal life, you must get close to, or even into, the thing that has them. They are not a sort of prize which God could, if He chose, just hand out to anyone. They are a great fountain of energy and beauty spurting up at the very centre of reality. If you are close to it, the spray will wet you: if you are not, you will remain dry. Once a man is united to God, how could he not live forever. // CS Lewis, Mere Christianity

Do not find me cold or distant or dry. Do not find me seeking joy or peace or power anywhere else. Do not find me running to any other fountain.
May I be caught up evermore in the spray, the fire, the ocean of Him.
