CS Lewis on the “daily and hourly experiences” of spirituality

CS Lewis wrote: “The rational and moral element in each human mind is a point of force from the Supernatural working its way into Nature … In the same way the voice of the Announcer is just so much of a human voice as the receiving set lets through. Of course it varies with the state of the receiving set, and deteriorates as the set wears out and vanishes altogether if I throw a brick at it. It is conditioned by the apparatus but not originated by it…Reason is something more than cerebral biochemistry. … The Supernatural is not remote and abstruse; it is a matter of daily and hourly experience, as intimate as breathing.” (Miracles, “Answers to Misgivings”, pp. 62-65)
