|My internet search for DESIRE images. Abstractions are hard to visualize.|
How to be as happy as I can, based on the instructions from the previous post:
"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 the universe 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 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 the other country and to help others to do the same."
Mere Christianity, the end of book 3, chapter 10
There is something in me that needs to be satisfied. When I find it all will be well, including my pursuit of happiness.
