On Pleasures

I began to listen to my own longings as rumors of another world, a bright clue to the nature of the Creator...

My natural desires, I now see, are pointers to the supernatural, not obstacles. In a world fallen far from its original design, God wants us to receive [pleasures] as gifts and not possessions, tokens of love and not loves in themselves.
Philip Yancey. RUMORS OF ANOTHER WORLD: What On Earth Are We Missing?
