Lewis: We all wrestle with this "divine discontent" don't you think?

Lewis: This reminds me of a statement in one of the Mahatma letters
which advises we judge an organization by its *motives* and not by
what it manages to accomplish. In another place they say we should
not be attached to results. I think they even go so far as to suggest
that if one looks for results it is (to use a British witicism)
rather bad form, because it shows a lack of understanding of the
natural laws. Ever cause MUST have its effect.
