Life in Writing
I know that The Chronicles of Narnia really lays it on thick with the Christian symbolism and that can be off-putting to some people. But regardless of your religion it's easy to see the truth in this statement. People who act against what they feel is morally right will always be miserable. Everybody reading this has surly at some point in their lives done something that they didn't feel right about, and been miserable because of it. Taking a short-cut around the walls that your moral belief system sets up for you may get you what you want, but as Aslan points out, you may not like getting what you want if it's attained in a way that doesn't line up with your beliefs.
What Aslan is saying here is important. If you're unhappy in your life then take a moment to evaluate how well your actions are lining up with your moral compass. If you find that your actions aren't lining up, then make the effort to change them. We can all get what we want, but if we do it the wrong way, we're not going to like it.
Note: I would like to point out here, that not all unhappiness is because of wrong-doing, most is, but for many in this world depression is a very really thing that can bring about extreme sadness with no wrong-doing required. For those who suffer from depression, you may find this post more helpful.
