Really, Truly Alive

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”
― Thornton WilderOur Town

“Hell is a state of mind – ye never said a truer word. And every state of mind, left to itself, every shutting up of the creature within the dungeon of its own mind – is, in the end, Hell. But Heaven is not a state of mind. Heaven is reality itself. All that is fully real is Heavenly. For all that can be shaken will be shaken and only the unshakeable remains.”
— C.S. Lewis (The Great Divorce)
