Looking for Clover: Our pursuit of Paradise in a wonky world—Desire

clover

Thoughts on Desire from C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity:

“The Christian says, Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex.

If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.

If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a fraud. Probably earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only to arouse it, to suggest the real thing.

If that is so, I must take care, on the one hand, never to despise, or to be unthankful for, these earthly blessings, and on the other, never to mistake them for the something else of which they are only a kind of copy, or echo, or mirage.

I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I shall not find till after death; I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside; I must make it the main object of life to press on to that country and to help others to do the same.”

More to come ….

  8. I think that what you said made a bunch of sense.
    However, think about this, what if you added a little content?

    I ain’t saying your information is not solid., however suppose you added a title that makes people desire more?
    I mean https://uberdoofus.com/clover-looking-paradise-desire is kinda boring.
    You could look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news titles
    to grab people to click. You might add a video or a pic or
    two to get people interested about what you’ve written. Just my
    opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
