divine

A Quote by Albert Einstein on god, divine, sacred, holy, gospel, human, compassion, love, peace, and agonostic

No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus.  His personality pulsates in every word.  No myth is filled with such life."  Albert Einstien

A Quote by Saint Ephraim the Syrain on god, love, divine, spirit, enlightenment, hearts, grace, suffering, and sin

You victorious martyrs who endured torments gladly for the sake of God and Savior, you who have boldness of speech toward the Lord Himself, you saints, intercede for us who are timid and sinful men, full of sloth, that the grace of Christ may come upon us, and enlighten the hearts of all of us so that we may love Him.

A Quote by Saint Dorotheos of Gaza on god, self, spirituality, sacred, divine, growth, learning, evil, passions, and change

It often happens that someone sees himself sitting peacefully and quietly, but when his brother says a word that upsets him, he is troubled.  Thus, he thinks that he is justly upset with him, saying, 'If he hadn't come and spoken to me and troubled me, I wouldn't have sinned.'  But this is folly and absurdity.  Did the person that spoke to him give him that passion?  He simply showed him that the passion existed within him, so that, if he wanted to, he could repent of it.  He is like fine bread bread that shines on the outside, but when one breaks it, he see its moldeness.  In just the same way, he was sitting, as he thought, in peace, but he had this passion inside him he was unaware of.  His brother said one word and revealed the filth hidden inside him.  Therefore if he wants to receive mercy, he must repent, purify himself, progress and he must understand that he ought to thank his brother for being the great cause of his spiritual benefit.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, sacred, divine, purity, change, growth, spirituality, evil, mind, and love

In England, when people bow before the queen, they do so out of respect, but it does not imply any repentance.  But when we bow before Christ, it means that we are ready to empty ourselves from an evil mind, from any evil thought or act, or any evil thing in our lives.

A Quote by Elder Pasios of the Holy Mountain on god, christianity, divine, victory, symbol, truth, sacred, spirit, devil, and gift

We have the power of the Holy Cross, our holy symbol, the divine grace of Christ, only as long as we have the holy marking of the Holy Baptism, meaning we have denied the devil and sided with Christ, and received the Holy Marking, the seal of the Gift of the Holy Spirit.

A Quote by Abbot Nikon on god, christianity, divine, love, courage, sacrifice, virtues, humility, truth, and reality

It is time that you realized that the enemy will not leave alone anyone who desires to be saved.  Consquently, the battle against him will not cease until death.  Futhermore, the evil one can not be conquered through one's own strength.  It was to destroy the works of the devil that Christ came to earth.  Together with those who always call upon Him for help, Christ battles against the devil and against sin.  Man should likewise rise up with all his strength against sin and the devil, using as weapons the means indicated by the Lord, the Apostles and the Holy fathers.  For an Orthodox Christian these weapons are prayer, fasting, soberity and humility.  Without humility, nothing will be of any use, for those who are proud and sure of themselves will not recieve the Lord's help, but inevitably fall into various snares of the devil.

A Quote by Kassiana on god, christianity, divine, love, courage, sacrifice, virtues, humility, truth, and reality

Listen, daughter, to those words of unspoken bravery, which are characteristic only of love.  Out of love, the Son of God humiliated Himself, served, taught, healed, fed, strengthened, straightened, gladdened, suffered, was in distress, forgave, and died.  "The Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life as ransom for many." (Matt. 20:28)  When serving, He served with rejoicing; when sacrificing Himself, He sacrificed voluntarily, not worrying about Himself, but looking constantly with an everlasting, ardent love towards the heavens, at those two other Persons of the Holy Trinity.  That is the simple existence of love in the Son.  That is also the natural way of men who have love.  Because of this St. Nilus of Sinai says, "With pain you have aquired divine love, that all become easy to do and maintain.  But where there is no love, there is no repose."  And all becomes difficult and impossible.

A Quote by Micheal Teal on divine, inspire, love, transformation, empowerment, peace, light, and heaven

We all have a divine mission on earth. Let that mission be to inspire love and embrace the light within. Let that mission be to have peace in our hearts as we create heaven on earth. Let that mission be to seek empowerment through transformation and to breathe joy into everything we do. If we allow these things to be our mission the golden light of the sun will shine on our souls and change our world forever.

A Quote by Jalaja Bonheim on preistess, women, feminine, divine, reality, and world

Today, I would describe a preistess as a woman who lives in two worlds at once, who perceives life on earth against a backdrop of a vast, timeless, reality.

A Quote by Zora Neale Hurston on suffering, fear, divine, emotion, wisdom, beginning, and altars

“Through indiscriminate suffering men know fear, and fear is the most divine emotion. It is the stones for altars and the beginning of wisdom.”
