This is not the way things should be = Divine Discontent

The following excerpt is from The Journey of Desire by John Eldridge:

Something awful has happened, something terrible. Something worse, even, than the fall of man. For in that greatest of all tragedies, we merely lost Paradise - and with it, everything that made life worth living. What has happened since is unthinkable: we've gotten used to it.  We're broken in to the idea that is just the way things are.  The people who walk in great darkness have adjusted their eyes.  Regardless of our religious or philosophical beliefs, most of us live as though this life is pretty much the way things are supposed to be.
