Our Spiritual Law

Image by Olessya from Pixabay

It is our business to live by our own law, not by fears:

to follow, in private or in public life,

the law of love and temperance,

even when they seem to be suicidal,

and not the law of competition and grab,

even when they seem to be necessary

to our own survival.

For it is part of our spiritual law

never to put survival first:

not even the survival of our species.

We must resolutely train ourselves to feel

that the survival of Man on this Earth,

much more of our own nation or culture or class,

is not worth having unless it can be had

by honorable and merciful means.

C. S. Lewis, “On Living in an Atomic Age
