A Quote by Vladimir Antonov on life, soul, purpose, love, understanding, and christ

Some important ideas from the book of early Christians which is called Philokalia:

From Spiritual Directions of Theodore of Edessa

Only when we rid ourselves of passions and lust and put the desires of flesh under the control of Spi­rit, only then we accept the cross and follow Christ.

And “withdrawal from the world” is nothing but the destruction of passions and manifestation of the innermost life in Christ.

Vladimir Antonov
