He Casts No Shadow

We should, I believe, distrust states of mind which turn our attention upon ourselves… When the sun is vertically above a man he casts no shadow: similarly, when we have come to the Divine meridian our spiritual shadow (that is, our consciousness of self) will vanish. One will thus in a sense be almost nothing: a room to be filled by God and our blessed fellow creatures, who in their turn are rooms we help fill. 
— C.S. Lewis, Letter to Walter Hooper
