Wanted: A New Pleasure
By Tim Massengale
Aldous Huxley, The Eminent Skeptic, Wrote An essay entitled “Wanted, A New Pleasure.” “As far as I can see,” he said, “the only possible new pleasure would be derived from the invention of a new drug which would provide a harmless substitute for alcohol. If I were a millionaire, I should endow a band of research workers to look for the ideal intoxicant. If we could sniff or swallow something that would:
1. Abolish inferiority,
2. Atone us with our fellows in a glowing exultation of affection and
3. Make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly world-transforming drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and undamaged constitution, then it seems to me that all our problems would be solved and earth would be a paradise.”
Would not these three qualities all fit the infilling of the Holy Spirit?
