Life out of death

butterfly King_Priamos_butterfly

The principle runs through all life from top to bottom. Give up yourself, and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it. Submit to death, death of your ambitions and favourite wishes every day . . . and you will find eternal life. Keep back nothing.

Nothing that you have not
given away will be really yours.

Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.

–C. S. Lewis
Mere Christianity
