God

A Quote by C.S. Lewis on god, christianity, worship, truth, reality, atheism, paganism, delusion, and religion

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

A Quote by Saint Maximos the Confessor on god, christianity, nature, reality, passion, pain, mind, compassion, and truth

In the beginning, passion and pain were not created together with the body; nor forgetfulness and ignorance together with the soul; nor the ever-changing impressions in the shape of events with the mind.  All these things were brought about in man by his disobedience.

A Quote by Saint Silouan of Mt. Athos on love, god, peace, hatred, enemies, hearts, hope, freedom, spirit, and soul

"Peace in our souls is impossible unless we beg the Lord with all our hearts to give us love for all men.  The Lord knew if we did not love our enemies, we should have no peace of soul, and so He gave us the Commandment, 'Love your enemies.'  Unless we love our enemies, we shall only now and then be easy, as it were, in our souls; but if we love our enemies, peace will dwell in us day and night."

Saint Silouan the Anthonite

Love is the song of the soul singing to God.  It is the balanced rhythmic dance of planets - sun and moon lit

A Quote by Saint Anthony the Great on god, christianity, enlightenment, hope, humility, pride, death, knowledge, and power

Learn to love humility, for it will cover all your sins.  All sins are repulsive before God, but the most repulsive of all is pride of the heart.  Do not consider yourself learned and wise; otherwise, all your efforts will be destroyed, and your boat will reach the harbor empty.  If you have great authority, do not threaten anyone with death.  Know that, according to nature, you too are susceptible to death, and that every soul sheds its body as its final garment.

A Quote by Saint Moses the Ethiopian on god, evil, judgement, peace, good, virtue, christianity, hope, freedom, and truth

Do not rail against anyone, but rather say, "God knows each one."  Do not agree with him who slanders, do not rejoice at his slander and do not hate him who slanders his nieghbor.  This is what it means not to judge.

A Quote by Saint Silouan the Anthonite on god, spirituality, truth, awareness, pride, love, humility, hope, and freedom

The Lord does not reveal himself to many men because of their intellectual pride, yet they still think they possses much knowledge.  But what is their knowledge worth, if they not the Lord, know not the grace of Holy Spirit, know not how this grace comes and wherefore it is lost?  But let us humble ourselves, brethren, and the Lord will show us all things, as a loving father shows all things to his children.

A Quote by Saint Silouan of Mt. Athos on god, christianity, spirituality, happiness, truth, awakening, enlightenment, humility, and peace

But to be saved, we must humble ourselves, for the proud man, even were he to be set down in Paradise would not find peace there but would be discontent, and say, "Why am I not up in the front rank?"  But the humble soul is filled with love and does not seek to be in the foreground.  The humble soul wishes good things to all men, and in all things is content.

He who keeps in mind the way of the saints, by imitating them, not only shakes off the deadly paralysis of sin, but also takes up the life of the virtues.
