Made for Another World

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.

–C. S. Lewis

The pervasive desire

Ron-RolheiserThere is within us a fundamental dis-ease, an unquenchable fire that renders us incapable, in this life, of ever coming to full peace. This desire lies at the center of our lives, in the marrow of our bones, and in the deep recesses of the soul. At the heart of all great literature, poetry, art, philosophy, psychology, and religion lies the naming and analyzing of this desire.
