A closer analogy is the experience of love. When you love somebody, it is no longer yourself who is the center of your own universe. It is the one you love who is. You forget yourself. You deny yourself. You give yourself, so that by all the rules of arithmetical logic there should be less of yourself than there was to start with. Only by curious paradox there is more. You feel that at last you really are yourself.
The experience of salvation involves the same paradox. Jesus put it like this: “Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it.
"I am homesick for a place I am not sure even exists. One where my heart is full. My body loved. And my soul understood."
"I’m attracted to the extreme light and the extreme dark. I’m interested in the human condition and what makes people tick. I’m interested in the things people try to hide."
