hints of our future

I have a book of daily readings from C.S. Lewis' classic works. The other day I was reading the 28 May entry, an excerpt from Lewis' book, "The Weight of Glory." It is entitled, "Hints of Our Future."

" ' We know not what we shall be'; but we may be sure we shall be more, not less, than we were on earth. Our natural experiences (sensory, emotional, imaginative) are only like the drawing, like pencilled lines on flat paper. If they vanish in the risen life, they will vanish only as pencil lines vanish from the real landscape, not as a candle flame that is put out but as a candle flame which becomes invisible because someone has pulled up the blind, thrown open the shutters, and let in the blaze of the risen sun."

That's a pretty good hint.
