God

A Quote by Elder Cleopa on god, christianity, protection, magic, witches, victory, freedom, truth, life, and peace

Do not do anything without signing yourself with the sign of the Cross!  When you depart on a journey, when you begin your work, when you go to study, when you are alone, and when you are with other people, seal yourself with the Holy Cross on your forehead, your body, your chest, your heart, your lips, your eyes, your ears.  All of you should be sealed with the sign of Christ's victory over hell.  Then you will no longer be afraid of charms, evil spirits, or sorcery, because these are dissolved by the power of the Cross like wax before fire and like dust before the wind"
Elder Cleopa (+1998)

A Quote by Elder Ephraim of Philotheou on god, christianity, courage, hope, mindfulness, spirituality, self control, truth, and love

"Be careful with your mouth, but primarily with your mind; do not let evil thoughts start talking to you.  Do not let your mouth say words that could perhaps wound your brother.  Let your mouth put forth words which are fragrant: words of consolation, courage and hope.  It is a person's mouth that reveals his interior, inner man."

"Don't worry too much about how spiritually poor you are_God sees that,but for you it is expected to trust in God and pray to Him as best you can,never to fall into despair and to struggle according to your strength.If you ever begin to think you are spiritually_"well off"_then you can know for sure that you aren't!True spiritual life,even on the most elementary level,is always accompanied by suffering and difficulties.Therefore you should rejoice in all your difficulties and sorrows."

A Quote by Gerontissa Makrina on god, christianity, forgiveness, peace, love, spirituality, freedom, truth, joy, and enlightenment

If you are never angry, always forgiving instantly and constantly blaming yourself knowing you can never be right, you will have heaven on earth and in your heart.  And Christ will help you to do all these things.  You must be like Christ.  You must never love one sister more than another sister, love each sister equally.  If they hurt you or wrong you, love them even more."

A Quote by John Muir on source, soul, god, nature, connection, and reality

We all flow from one fountain— Soul. All are expressions of one love. God does not appear, and flow out, only from narrow chinks and round bored wells here and there in favored races and places, but He flows in grand undivided currents, shoreless and boundless over creeds and forms and all kinds of civilizations and peoples and beasts, saturating all and fountainizing all.

John Muir (1838 - 1914)

A Quote by Shams-ud-din Muhammad (Hafiz) on ecstasy, god, sky, and spiritualty

The earth has disappeared beneath my feet,
Illusion fled from all my ecstasy.

Now like a radiant sky creature
God keeps opening.

God keeps opening
Inside of Me.

A Quote by Anne Frank on alone, afraid, fear, unhappiness, nature, spirituality, god, and loneliness

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.

Anne Frank (1929 - 1945)
